Here is why you should make the switch to eco friendly cleaning products

There are many reasons why you should make the switch to eco friendly cleaning products and these are just a couple of them.

Many of us don’t think twice before getting out the bleach and giving the kitchen a good going over, but in reality, many of the cleaning products we use can be harmful to us and our pets. Packed full of unpronounceable chemicals, these products can cause a wide range of issues. Here are some reasons why you should consider making the switch to safe, non-toxic, organic, and natural cleaning products.

  1. Using natural cleaning products will make your house safer as you are eliminating the presence of flammable and toxic ingredients. Some ingredients can be disastrous when mixed and this can be easy to do by accident as we do our spring cleaning. Minimise your risk and stick to organic, pet and human friendly alternatives.
  2. When you choose to use eco-friendly cleaning products, you are making the choice to protect the environment. Most cleaning products are made using sustainable production methods and ingredients so their creation doesn’t damage the environment or any of the creatures that live in it.
  3. Using chemical based ingredients can increase the level of pollution inside your home, in some cases making it worse than outside. Volatile organic compounds can be released into the air when you use and store chemical products, causing a host of health issues. Ditch them and eliminate the issue.
  4. Many of the eco cleaning products we stock are multipurpose which means you don’t need to get a different product for each task you have to do, therefore saving you money!
  5. Having less products, and having better quality, safer products ultimately makes your job easier. You can tackle multiple cleaning jobs without having to switch products and you don’t need to worry about breathing in/touching/or inhaling natural products.
  6. Do you know what is in your toilet cleaner? Or dish soap? No us neither, and good luck deciphering the ingredients label. With natural products, manufacturers are proud to share what they put inside and you can clearly see what you are using, with no nasty surprises.

Nourish Your Lashes With An Eco Friendly Mascara

Mascara is a makeup essential but did you know eco friendly mascara is just as good?

If you are looking for an eco friendly mascara that will nourish your lashes, then this is a great place to start!

If you ask anyone what their desert island makeup essential would be, we are pretty sure the majority of them would say mascara. Used to darken, lengthen, thicken, and separate our eyelashes, mascara has become a staple in the makeup bags all over the world.

Like many of today’s makeup trends, the origins of mascara can be found in ancient Egypt where men and women would paint their eyes, and lashes with thick, black, sticky potion that would enhance the eyes. These fashions were replicated in Babylonia, Greece, and the Roman Empire before falling out of fashion in Europe, whilst remaining popular in the Middle East.

Mascara faced a big resurgence in popularity in Victorian England as social opinion radically shifted to promote cosmetics and women spent many hours each day, preening and beautifying themselves. One of the most sought after features was long, thick, dark lashes and to attain this, Victorian women would make their own mascara at home, with varying results. One example of homemade Victorian-era mascara was made from a mixture of ash and elderberry juice that was heated and brushed onto the lashes.

In terms of commercial mascaras, in the 19th Century, formulas began to emerge that used a mixture of coal and the newly invented petroleum jelly. It was incredibly messy so a better version was soon created that was made of soap and black dye and was applied with a dampened brush- similar in style to our mascara cake that we stock today!

Nowadays, mascara is typically made of waxes, oils, and a base mixture of pigments including iron oxide and titanium dioxide which provide it with the desired colour. The problem is that many commercial mascaras come in plastic tubes that are often discarded after as little as three months. These tubes are so small that they rarely get recycled and instead end up in landfills, breaking down over hundreds of years into harmful microplastics. 

Thankfully, Peace With The Wild stocks a variety of different mascaras that come in bamboo or metal packaging and are refillable. This cuts down substantially on the amount of waste created when you seek more luscious lashes, and promotes a more sustainable kind of beauty.
