Beauty product swaps for sustainable living

Its time to make the change!  Running out of a favourite beauty product?  It’s the perfect time to make the swap to a more sustainable way of living.  From your makeup bag to your bathroom cupboard, all our everyday essentials are going green.  With so much more choice, we can find a plastic free alternative to most of the products we use everyday.  Are you ready to make the switch?  Here are some of the sustainable beauty swaps we’ll be making this month.

 

 

Toothpaste for Toothpaste Tablets

Toothpaste, we can’t live without it.  But is there a way around buying it in a plastic tube?  YES!  Georganics have created the perfect alternative with their Toothpaste Tablets.  With 120 tablets in a pack, and packaged in a compostable material, they are completely sustainable and waste free.  They are also free from Fluoride, Glycerine and SLS, making them not only good for the planet but good for your teeth!  Perfect for restoring freshness, maintaining oral hygiene and protecting teeth and gums.  Choose from Spearmint or Peppermint flavour and pair them with the Georganics mouthwash tablets to stay fresh between meals.

Disposable Cotton Pads for Reusable Cotton Pads

Wear makeup everyday?  It can be a nightmare taking makeup off without our go to of a face wipe or cotton wool and cleanser.  But what a waste to use these things to take our makeup off just once and put them straight in the bin.  We are loving the Zero Waste Club Organic Cotton Reusable Pads.  Just use them and pop them in the wash to be used again and again!  Made from terry organic cotton, 16 round pads, containing two types of pad.  A gentle soft cotton for eye makeup removal, and a rougher pad for getting off that stubborn makeup.  Yes for waste free makeup removal!

 

Shampoo Bottles for Beauty Kubes

Get rid of those plastic bottles and still treat your hair to a luxurious lather with Beauty Kubes.  A sustainable alternative to great hair care.  These chalky cubes break down in the palm of your hand to create a great lather to rival any big shampoo brand.  Leaving hair soft, clean and smelling fresh.  The ingredients are 100% natural, vegan friendly, and free from palm oil, silicone, sulphates, and plastic packaging.  Just select the product for your hair type, from oily to sensitive.  You’ll never use normal shampoo again!

Shower Gels for Soap Bar’s and Scrubs

Swap out those soap bottles for waste free soap bars and scrubs.  The simplest way to cut down on plastic usage in the bathroom.  Trade in squirty hand soaps for soap bars and treat your skin in the shower to a body scrub bar.   Wildtree Organic Body Scrub Melts are vegan, cruelty free, and made from all natural ingredients.  These bars will help to exfoliate, moisturise and brighten skin.  Keeping you smelling fresh and feeling smooth!

 

Roll on Deodorant for Deodorant Balm

Keep the freshness but get rid of the plastic with The Deodorant Co Natural Deodorant Balm.  Containing natural ingredients such as Sodium Bicarbonate to prevent odour causing bacteria, and magnesium oxide to prevent sweat and provide protection.  These deodorant balms offer on the go protection and help you to stay fresh with none of the harmful chemicals or plastic packaging.  Still a handy small size perfect for popping in a bag for when you are on the move!
