Today, many people are becoming eco-friendly. Most of us are trying to reduce our footprint by using sustainable products in our day-to-day lives. Over the years, it has become very important to go plastic-free and chemical-free. It has become a way of life. So much so that even the beauty industry has switched to sustainability. The green skincare industry is exploding as it attempts to respond to the demand for non-toxic, eco-friendly products.
There’s one issue, though. No matter how green and sustainable the product gets, the packaging never seems to follow. You almost always get stuck with healthy and natural products inside plastic wrappers and containers. It’s the equivalent of writing ‘Save Trees’ on a piece of paper. Ironic, right?
This is where Ethique comes into the picture. It’s a New Zealand-based green skincare company that is setting the bar high in the green skincare industry. Especially in green packaging! This company has taken a novel approach towards packaging, braving the world in unconventional ways. They are paving the path for other green companies in the beauty industry to walk on.
Ethique is a skincare company that refuses to use any form of plastic in their packaging. Instead, they choose cardboard and paper. The packaging is just the icing. The cake is its products, and it is delicious!
Ethique manufactures products such as facial cleansers, creams, shampoo, conditioner, exfoliants, and body butter. All products are in the shape of a solid, concentrated bar. They store these bars in plain white paper and fit into colorful cardboard boxes.
‘Ethical’ Eco-Friendly Products
Most of us find it hard to live a sustainable life. We need products that work and are the conventional ones. Maybe even better than them. We cannot adjust to a product just because it’s sustainable.
A female biologist, Brianne West, established the company in New Zealand. She makes beauty bars that work. So you need not worry about your hair looking like something out of the medieval era. You can enjoy looking marvelous while practicing sustainability at the same time.
“I wanted to do something positive for the environment,” Brianne tells BeautyIndependent. “That’s why Ethique came about. Creating the world’s most sustainable cosmetic company was appealing.”
The best part about Ethique is that all the bars are vegan, sustainably sourced, and naturally derived. All of this combined with their smart packaging techniques makes sure that their beauty bars don’t leave a trace on the earth behind.
Ethique is perfect for people who are on a budget, trying to treat themselves with a little ‘self-care’ shopping, or trying to do something for the environment. Brownie points for not having to adjust or sacrifice for the sake of the environment, too.
Bars Of Goodness
Ethique sells eco-friendly products that contain almost no preservatives. These beauty bars are full of fresh and natural ingredients like coconut oil, cocoa butter, kiwifruit seed oil, and essential oils. Your skin will appreciate the subtraction of harsh chemicals and feel soft as ever.
Solid bars last longer than liquid products as they are highly concentrated. The company says a single bar should easily last you 5 months. This saves you a ton of money and time that you would waste shopping for your current liquid products.
Ethique beauty bars are eco-friendly products free of plastic. Switching to these would prevent your shampoo, face wash, and conditioner plastic bottles from landing in the ocean. They also make the bars of biodegradable ingredients that would dissolve on the surface, leaving nothing behind. The company has prevented an estimate of 150,000 plastic bottles from ending up in the ocean. And if that’s not enough to convince you, 20% of profits are donated to charities for a good cause.
Ethique has products for all skin and hair types. It makes sure the environment is in excellent hands while taking care of you too.
