10 Eco-Friendly Beauty Products
Eco website The Greenage, has voted the following products as the Best Eco-Friendly in 2019
In a time of a burgeoning Green Movement, the market place is becoming populated with an abundance of eco-friendly alternatives to almost every aspect of our lives. There are no definitive champions that stick out – it is merely down to trial and error.
That’s the beauty, because of the many alternatives out there, you can test and test until you find the ones that work for you.
So let’s jump right in…
1. Make Up Remover Cloth
Do away with disposable wipes and cotton pads, and remove even the toughest makeup using nothing but water. The microfibres swell to grab and hold the makeup, meaning no more money wasted on makeup remover.
2. Organic, Vegan, Non-Toxic Nail Varnish
This cruelty-free, non-toxic nail varnish will take your manicure to the next level. Gone are the harsh smells and chemicals, the Karma polish is chip-resistant and all the packaging is recyclable.
3. Natural Deodorant Balm
This deodorant uses 100% natural ingredients to keep you smelling fresh all day, including arrowroot, coconut, shea butter, activated charcoal, and banana extract. It’s packaged in recycled glass, and 5% of the profits goes to charity.
4. Reusable Cotton Swabs
Cut down on plastic from travel-sized mini-shampoos and conditioners with reusable bottles like these. They’re all under 100ml so you can take them on board with you in your hand luggage.
5. Water Saving High-Pressure Showerhead
Made with eco-friendly materials, this showerhead features micro nozzle technology. That means smaller, denser
outlet holes, which increases the speed and pressure of the water flow, as well as saving up to 30% of your water.
6. Bamboo Makeup Brushes
Made from recycled aluminium & renewable bamboo, these brushes are cruelty-free, vegan, and certified by PETA. This set includes 5 brushes, 3 beauty look cards, and a cosmetics case, all packaged in 100% tree-free paper.
7. Bamboo Cotton Swaps
If the reusable silicone q-tips aren’t your cup of tea, you still don’t need to resort back to plastic. These environmental alternatives are 100% cotton and bamboo. They’re fully compostable, and come in packs of 200.
8. Vegan Dental Floss
Made from all natural ingredients, this dental floss comes in a reusable stainless steel container to cut down on plastic wastage. It’s also 100% biodegradable – you can even put it on your compost heap.
9. EcoTan Accelerator Gel
This tan accelerator is part of an ecological range of feel-good tanning products, which feature fully recyclable packaging and are all free from any animal testing. It can help perfect your tan without you having to spend as long in the sun.
10. Biodegrable Cosmetic Glitter
Glitter might seem harmless, but it’s a microplastic, which makes it truly terrible for the environment. This alternative is made primarily from eucalyptus, which not only means that it biodegradable, but also makes it much softer than plastic glitters.
