Vegan beauty products, planet-friendly bath and body buys and easy eco swaps to try
Try our cleanest bath and body range yet
Give your toiletries a feelgood makeover with Provenance, a range of luxurious 100% vegan bath and body products created using sustainably sourced natural extracts and oils. There are four collections within the range, which includes hand and body washes, body scrubs, body butter and hand cream. Each collection tells a different planet-positive story: British Seaweed uses Scottish seaweed harvested by hand for minimal impact, Greek Olive is made with sustainably grown olives from small-scale farmers and co-operatives, Ghanaian Shea & Coconut uses ingredients from suppliers that empower women and communities, and Spanish Blood Orange is made with wonky fruit that might otherwise be thrown away. Plus, there’s four complementary fine fragrances that fuse natural ingredients and expertly blended scents with evocative names like Santorini Days, all at purse-friendly prices.
Make the switch to plant-powered beauty products
Start with skincare and beauty products that are high on efficacy while being kind to the planet. Pure, our vegan cruelty-free skincare brand, is made with 95% natural ingredients: the Super Hydrate day cream SPF 15 is loved by beauty editors and customers alike. Neal’s Yard Remedies has been making natural, organic, ethical products since 1981. For a nightly nourishing treat, try the Vitamin E & Avocado night cream. Mani and pedi fans will be pleased to note that Nails Inc’s ‘21-free’ range features plant-based nail polish that doesn’t include any of the nasty ingredients found in traditional formulas.
Invest in natural and waste-reducing bathroom buys
While we all know that shorter showers are better for the environment, these eco-friendly buys can make your bathroom routine even greener. Ditching single-use cotton wool and wipes in favour of reusable cotton pads or muslin cloths is an easy eco swap, and our bamboo paddle brush and two-in-one body brush get five-star reviews. Wash your hair with Percy & Reed’s nourishing shampoo bar, and on the days between washes, keep hair dry with an organic cotton shower cap. Made from recycled polyester, our hair turban absorbs more moisture than towels, speeding up drying time and cutting hair dryer usage – better for the planet and hair health. Plus, you can say goodbye to single-use sanitary products with our leak-proof period knickers.
Take a more eco-friendly shower
Bathrooms can be a magnet for single-use plastic, but they don’t have to be. Check out L’Occitane’s plastic-free shea butter soap bars for a luxurious lather. Both L’Occitane and Apothecary offer popular products in refill pouches, which use up to 86% less plastic than traditional packaging. With a commitment to being zero waste by the end of 2021, clean beauty brand REN Clean Skincare is making sustainable strides. The uplifting Atlantic kelp & magnesium body wash comes in a 100% recycled bottle, 20% of which is reclaimed ocean plastic. Many of our cotton bathroom towels and beach towels feature StayNew technology to keep them looking great for longer.
