Here at Peace With The Wild, we understand the importance of looking after our skin. After all, it is the largest and fastest growing organ in the human body – so it’s crucial that we take care of it!
The same could be said for our planet – but, what if there was a way we could achieve both of these goals? Well, in fact there is, and that’s why we’ve devised a list of some of the eco skincare products which you can opt for that are sure to make a positive impact on ourselves and the earth on which we live.
This guide isn’t exhaustive, because quite frankly, we stock far too many eco-friendly alternative skincare products to include within one blog entry! However, this should act as a starting point if you’re just beginning your journey and looking to make some sustainable swaps in your skincare routine.
Let’s get into it then!
Our very own luxury range is handmade in the UK and is handcrafted using the purest, ethically sourced and highest quality ingredients which both nourish hydrate the skin. In keeping with our mission statement above, we have ensured all skincare is packaged 100% plastic-free. Available for a number of different skin types, we stock face creams for Normal, Dry, Oily and Mature Skin. Better still, our skincare range is 100% organic, natural, vegan and cruelty free!
Environmentally friendly and deodorant aren’t words you’d often expect to see in the same product description. Their plastic and sparsely recycled metal packaging is a major issue first and foremost, while aerosols are notorious for having both a detrimental impact on the earth’s air and lungs of those within close proximity. Things are changing though and, by purchasing a Ku.tis Natural Deodorant Stick, you can keep your underarms fresh and odour free! The stick’s Shea Butter ingredient helps to maintain healthy skin, with the deodorant’s Essential Oils also adding scent and fragrance.
Shaving is a fact of life, so you might as well make it eco-friendly! With most disposable razors only having a lifetime of around 5-10 shaves, that’s first and foremost a lot of plastic and rubber being thrown away, and secondly a hefty chunk of cash too. Well, you needn’t look no further than the practical and sustainable Double Edge Safety Razor by Mutiny. We accept at first, that these razors can look a little scary, but trust us you’ll garner the technique in no time and feel a closer shave by the conclusion!
Another staple of the Peace With The Wild luxury skincare range is our Organic Luxury Whipped Body Butters, which you’ll want to lather over every inch of your skin – trust us! We offer Sweet Orange & Vanilla, Rose Geranium & Lavender and Unscented butters, so you can tailor your purchase to your skin type. 100% Pure organic & Natural, the products are also free from water, coconut oil and wax.
If you’ve a methodical skincare routine, then you’ll realise the importance of exfoliating. No matter your gender or age, doing this at least once a week will enhance both how your skin feels and looks. We at Peace With The Wild recognise this just as much as anyone, which is why we’ve a diverse range of Body Scrubs in stock for you to choose from – provided by brands such as Wild Sage & Co, Soap Daze and Ku.tis. We’d recommend natural ingredients when it comes to cleansing your skin, with oats, salt and clays proving gentle but effective.
Each day our skin is exposed to the elements, the sun, sweat and dust to name a few. With this in mind, it is imperative that we eliminate these by the close of each day. Lamazuna’s Facial Cleanser has the capability to do exactly this. Each of their three different products will nourish your skin, safe in the knowledge that all of the ingredients used derive from either minerals or plants – the plant ingredients that are used are certified organic. Grapefruit, Hibiscus and Exotic variants are available.
Cotton facial rounds are an essential item for all skincare/makeup routines! When it comes to toning skin or removing makeup, this is the ultimate eco-friendly hack! Simply wash and reuse these cotton facial rounds and never have to buy a big pack of plastic baby wipes or cotton pads again. Oh, and did we mention they look amazing with all the quirky patterns to choose from. 100% cotton & biodegradable.
Made with all of our own love, Peace With The Wild’s selection of Hand and Foot Butters are wonderful for the skin. Made using only the purest of ingredients – 100% organic! Our skincare doesn’t contain any water and therefore makes for a long-lasting product. Available in a wide variety of scents for various skin types. Supplied in a easily reusable or recyable metal tin.
Many of us probably don’t take stock of how much exposure our lips have, with them being on display, quite literally 24 hours a day. Reflecting on this, it’s pivotal that we do all we can to preserve and protect them. Therefore, we’ve worked hard to source the best natural and plastic-free lip balms available, and it’s resulted in us stocking a comprehensive and diverse range.
A large quantity of what you would describe as ‘conventional’ sunscreens come in either plastic tubes or bottles, with a growing concern about the chemicals present in them too. Options are out there though, like for example, Amazinc’s Mineral Sunscreen Lotion. With a high protection of SPF 50+ and sustainably and ethically sourced ingredients, the Zinc oxide reflects harmful sun-rays whilst a blend of olive and almond oils keeps your skin hydrated.
So there you have it! Our 10 eco-friendly skincare products you can buy today that allows you to care for yourself and while also considering our planet! We hope you found something that you’d consider swapping over to.
