In this blog, we have put together a list of beauty and personal care brands that are leading the movement towards a sustainable future.

These bars are made from compostable and biodegradable materials, effectively eliminating the need for plastic bottles. They go beyond just beauty bars, offering plastic-free lip balms and other beauty products.
Wild has made waves in the beauty world with their innovative approach to sustainable deodorant. Their solution to the issue of single-use plastic comes in the form of aluminium cases that can be refilled again and again.
With a wide range of scents, and all-natural formulas, Wild deodorants allow you to buy sustainably, without compromising efficiency or style. Additionally, their convenient recurring payment/delivery plans ensure that you never have to worry about running out of your favourite deodorant.
FLUUS is another brand leading in the change toward a sustainable future. With a commitment to using recycled materials, minimising packaging, and designing energy-efficient products.
Their technology ensures their pads break down when flushed, making every component, including the wrapper, sustainable.

Finally, the bamboo safety razor by Acala is a game-changer for sustainable shaving. It offers an eco-friendly alternative to disposable plastic razors, with a sleek design and high-quality stainless-steel blade.
As the blade dulls overtime it can easily be replaced, allowing this razor to be an effective solution to embrace sustainability and reduce our impact on the environment.
The beauty and personal care industry is changing, with a multitude of brands embracing sustainable alternatives. These forward-thinking brands are setting a new standard as we venture into an environmentally conscious future. Let’s inspire others to join the plastic-free movement this July.
