If we compare the two from one another, there is only a slight shade difference and will be hard to notice, since it will only leave a sheer tint.

✔ Packaging Design: Simple and straight forward packaging which is easy to use.’
✔ Typography: The packaging is readable and clear san-serif font.

╸ Is it sustainable? No, I am okay with the main encasing that the product comes in, however the extra plastic packaging is wasteful. Companies should start being more responsible with the waste that they produce, now that Global Warming is prevalent. If they want to move forward with the packaging, they should be accountable by providing solutions to customers in what they can do with the packaging afterwards.
✔ Dyes: When a colour is named “FD&C” it means that it has been approved by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for use in food, medicines and cosmetics. When it’s labelled “D&C” then it has not been approved for food. The dyes used in this product are D&C , which means that it has not been approved by the FDA.
