Nuasan, keeping you fresh on the go!
We wrote this article last year but as we came across it again, we thought – how relevant is this for us now??
Okay, so we know that you are not exactly flat out with places to go these days, but have you noticed how much busier our days have become??
You seem to spend the first hours of your day chasing around the house, trying to get the kids up in before your first Zoom call, before you have to be on-line at your kid’s class, just to make sure they have turned up (the kids, not the teacher!). You swore you would tackle that spare room at some stage, but you have to make the call to the electric company and you just know that there is nothing in the fridge for lunch. All this to think about before you’ve had that glorious first cup of coffee!
It’s only 10am.
We all have different schedules and sometimes it feels like you spend your day running.
Physically and metaphorically.
I’m someone who seems to be always running (I couldn’t tell you!), so I always (particularly during the summer months) have a can of deodorant in my handbag. It was particularly handy on Fridays around 5pm, when a drink after work was mentioned.
But although the Friday drinks are temporarily a thing to only dream of at the moment, we still face the same issue of running around and one needs to feel fresh! So, in a time when we are all trying to do our best to buy more eco-friendly cosmetics, we looked to the market to find products that were both easy on the environment, but actually WORKED.
Enter Nuasan. They are an Irish company (based in Galway), who launched Active Body Wipes last year, which are made from plant-based fibres. They work in harmony with your skin to create a sustained body-odour controlled environment meaning you feel fresh all day long.
Enriched with L+pHControl® which eliminates the bacteria that causes body odour, they also contain bamboo and peppermint to instantly cool, as well as macro-algae and aloe to soothe and hydrate.
Well, doesn’t that sound pretty amazing?
Dara Scott, founder and MD says, “Our busy lifestyles mean we have enough to worry about besides trying to stay fresh as well as worrying about if we’re making sustainable choices.
So, don’t worry!” This is a range of body care products created with the active and on-the-go life in mind, so that feeling of freshness would never be too far away.
Where did the product come from? Years of expertise using natural active ingredients in a completely different field, lead to the development of Nuasan. Using anti-fungal properties to create HiveAlive, a natural feed for bee health has protected over 6.5 million colonies of bees worldwide.
With proven success, Dara and his team began exploring other categories and found that there aren’t very many natural products available for dealing with bacteria and fungus for people. They also found that when it comes to body odour, it’s all about “deodorising” or masking the issue, not actually eliminating the problem.
Why is Nuasan different? Natural body care products have long since been established in the market, so what’s unique about Nuasan? Sustainability is a driving force behind the company’s ethos and impacts every element of the business from manufacturing to day to day business.
Dara says, “Too many companies just focus on growth and profit. We want to use our position to positively impact the future any way we can.”
- Their Nuasan Active Body Wipes are biodegradable and made from plant-based fibres.
- 10% of all profits are donated to combat the climate crisis.
- 75% of their bottles are made of 100% post-consumer recycled plastic (this means they are taking plastic out of the environment instead of adding to it.)
- All their boxes are made from recycled paper.
- Their HQ office is powered solely by wind power.
- They have a zero-waste policy and compost facilities in their office.
- All their products are vegan and cruelty free.
All in all, we believe that this is a pretty good proposition and a product that we would like to recommend here on Wasted, so we are happy to get it the thumbs up!
Good for your health, good for the environment. And good for the bees apparently.
