The Pyongyang Cosmetics Factory is collecting various kinds of idle materials to make effective use of them.
It produces containers for cosmetics by treating waste PET bottles through such processes as sorting, washing and decomposing.
It also makes gel toilet soaps with waste cooking oil by newly establishing a purifying and blending process.
It extracts such effective ingredients as polysaccharide, vitamin, protein and RNA from reclaimed waste yeast coming out of beer production to use them in producing hair and other functional cosmetics.
The factory collects polyphenol, a functional material for anti-aging and anti-wrinkle cosmetics from grape seeds obtained from fruit-processing factories.
