El programa Return for Cash de BVO, anteriormente llamado Empties Return Program, es el único programa de cuidado de la piel en el mundo que lo ayuda a hacer lo correcto: devuelva sus botellas y frascos de cosméticos vacíos para mantener nuestro frágil entorno libre de envases de un solo uso, y le pagamos por ello. !

We had to find a solution

The solution was starring us in the eyes all along! In Michigan we count with a "returnable program" for soda cans and beer bottles. With every purchase made of these items, a deposit is paid during checkout. To recover that deposit, which sometimes amounts to a lot of $$, the empty bottles and cans need to be returned and deposited into special receptacles.

This accomplishes two things, the first glass and metal is recovered and reused to make more glass bottles and cans, and second our cities are free of trash!

We used the same concept for our ReturnforCash Program! Which meant rethinking our entire production line. We replaced all plastics containers even those claiming to be made of recycled plastic, with mostly glass and very minimum metal, and we found ingenious and practical ways to reuse those tops!

How does it all work?

Shop for your favorite products! Most are packed in jars or bottles offered with optional pumps, sprayers or droppers.

Once your products runs out, come back and order a new bottle, this time without the topper, pump, sprayer or dropper.

Wash and disinfect the topper from your empty bottle, and reuse it in your new bottle.

We'll pay you to send those empty bottles back to us! We will wash them, sterilize them and refill them with more of our fabulous products!

The result? NO MORE TRASH!

- We've made it easy for you! -



Collect all empty glass bottles and jars you wish to return. Do not remove the labels. We only accept our own product packing in our RETURNforCASH program. Containers without labels won't be accepted and won't count towards your refund.


Remove pumps, sprayers and droppers from bottles. These tops can be washed, sanitized and reused for your refills.

To wash them run soapy water. Fill a glass with water and dish soap. Pump the soapy solution through until fully clean and free of product residue. Repeat as many times as necessary.

Rinse by running clean water and disinfect them by pumping alcohol.

Your pumps, sprayers and droppers are now clean to be reused!
