A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine messaged me with a question. She wanted to know how to switch to zero waste skincare brands. This inspired me to write this blogpost. How to switch to zero waste skincare brands? She was wondering if I knew some brands that she could try out. I’ve written so many posts about more sustainable beauty brands, but never a post that you could use as a guide.
So inspired by the question that my friend asked me, here’s the answer to her question. And don’t worry, I’ll soon write a post about zero waste makeup brands too. Skincare, body care everything will be talked about in this post. If you’re curious about which brands I’m going to discuss in this post, keep reading!
Zero waste skincare brands
Of course, I don’t think you’re surprised that I mention Weleda. During my time as an ambassador, I had the privilege to try out a lot of their products. If you’re thinking about switching to a zero waste skincare brands for your beauty routines this is a good all-around brand. They have everything from shower gels to shampoos and from face products to body butter. They are also on the more affordable side of the spectrum and available worldwide. Besides the product, they also have city spas in several cities in The Netherlands. The latest city spa opening was in Amsterdam, which I would really recommend booking a relaxing massage, facial, or sports massage! The packaging of the Weleda products is made of 100% recyclable plastic, glass, or aluminum.
Facetheory is a zero waste skincare brand I discovered quite recently and absolutely love the brand. This zero waste skincare brand is also UK based and produces its products in Sheffield. It is a brand that has a huge variety of skincare products, so you can find a product that suits your skin type. The packaging Facetheory uses is almost 100% made out of recyclable materials, such as amber glass jars with aluminum caps. If you want to read more about their products, consider reading my Facetheory reviews post!
If you are more leaning towards the sustainable body and face care, Beauty Kitchen is one of the brands I’d recommend. They are currently available in Holland and Barrett in the Netherlands. Beauty Kitchen is a zero waste skincare brand with eco-friendly cosmetic packaging made in a local village in the UK. They have products ranging from face care to body, hand, and lip-care, so there’s a product for everyone. One of the cool things about this brand is that you can bring your send your empty packaging back to them, so they can recycle it!
Balade en Provence
Balade en Provence is a beautiful French brand that completely focuses on zero waste products. One of their staple products is their zero waste shampoo and zero waste shaving bar. I’ve reviewed their products in a blog post a while ago and I’m still so impressed by the quality of their products. I think their products are very innovative and really match their philosophy of a waste-free product. They are also constantly expanding their product line, so keep an eye out on their website!
So I hope you enjoyed reading this post about my 5 best zero waste skincare brands. I’ll definitely write a part 2 soon since I also have makeup brands I wanted to talk about. But this post definitely became too long if I mentioned all the brands in this one post. I’ll also talk about more zero waste makeup brands in the next post! So stay tuned for part 2 and in the meantime let me know your favorite more sustainable beauty brands!
