Celebrate Earth Day With Our Eco-Friendly Beauty Picks

We need to become more conscious of sustainable beauty buys if we want to turn the tide on plastic and pollution. Whether it’s upping our recycling, curbing waste or focusing on the long-term environmental impact of the products we use.  The easiest way to upgrade to a more planet-friendly beauty regime is to shop brands with proven environmentally friendly practices. From thoughtful packaging to cruelty-free formulas and sustainably sourced ingredients, these are our pick of the best…


The Soap Co. 100 Natural Detox Bath Oil

Not only is this bath oil packed with 15 pure botanical oils including rosemary, sage and soothing milk thistle, it’s also 100% natural. What’s even better is it’s also made in small batches here in the UK, with a completely 100% vegan, cruelty free (and bee-friendly!) formula with added calendula to heal and soothe. 

L'Occitane Verbena Shea Extra Gentle Soap
Inspired by a traditional soap recipe this is made with skin-softening shea butter and a 100% vegetable base. L'Occitane works directly with women's Shea-processing collectives in western Africa, supporting economic recovery and a heritage of natural harvesting traditions. Plus its Teracycle initiative will accept your used beauty products to be recycled. Simply take them to your nearest store and they’ll do the rest – as well as giving you 10% off your next shop.


Floral Street White Rose Candle
For the perfume (and interiors) minimalist, this candle smells of just-snipped rose stems, warm amber and fresh pear. The ingredients are vegan and sustainable, while the packaging is made from recycled coffee cups and is 100% biodegradable.

REN Evercalm Anti-Redness Serum
A deeply soothing and protective serum for sensitive skin that’s cruelty free and brimming with clean ingredients including arnica and a seaweed extract. REN has pledged to be a zero-waste brand by 2021, working towards 100% recyclable packaging and reusing ocean plastic. 

Neals Yard Remedies Seaweed and Arnica Foaming Bath
This tranquil aromatherapy blend is made of 54% organic ingredients, including lavender and Spanish marjoram oils, to help you unwind. You can also relax knowing the glass bottle can be recycled or upcycled and reused at home.

Aveda Shampure Conditioner
This ticks so many boxes. It’s 98% naturally derived, with abyssinian oil to instantly detangle and add shine. The calming aroma comes from 25 pure flower and plant essences. And the packaging is a 100% post-consumer HDPE bottle. Tick, tick, tick.

Ultrasun 50 SPF Face
It’s estimated that 14,000 tons of sunscreen end up in oceans every year, just by us slathering on SPF and going into the water. This high factor sunscreen is ideal for those with very fair and sensitive skin but it’s free from oxybenzone and octocrylene, the worst culprits for destroying the coral reefs.
