Earth Conscious Naturally ALL GOOD Brand Update

Earth Conscious Naturally ALL GOOD Brand Update


Here I am outside the Earth Conscious premises located on the beautiful Isle of Wight in Cowes where we make our Natural Deodorants.
 Bear in mind, Earth Conscious started at home in 2014 and we have moved production units 3 times, grasping more necessary space as we grow! 

Earth Conscious set out with good intentions as a plastic-free naturally ALL GOOD brand. Earth Conscious means to spread awareness and to give consideration for our world and all that reside here and we define ALL GOOD as doing the best we can do at the given time with what is available to us - we continue to do more as the brand grows. You can’t be everything to everyone at all times but our core values are always there. 

Ocean Friendly 100% Natural Ingredients

Initially our focus was on highly effective yet simple Natural Ingredients that pose no threat to the environment when washed away. These natural deodorant ingredients were also Certified Organic wherever possible and this remains true today.  We wanted our customers to be able to easily understand what they were using on their skin.

We also decided that our natural deodorant products not only had to be highly effective at the job in hand but they had to be long lasting, affordable and accessible to everyone, not just those with disposable income. On average we would expect a customer to get 3 months use from a single deodorant but we have had customers say they get 5 or 6 months from an Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant Stick. More recently we ran a test with the results being 6 months use expected from one of our essentially naked Bare Bar natural deodorants! £0.05p per daily use we feel is excellent value for money for our customers.

Plastic-Free Packaging

Also key was packaging. No point packaging a thoughtful product into plastic or wasteful packaging just to make it look pretty on the shelf. Products have to be authentic to the core values of our brand with genuine functionality. No over design, no over-packaging and no waste elements ending up in landfill or as micro-plastics should a customer wish to change products for example.  We opted for recyclable tins and cardboard tubes. Nothing to break, nothing to fail, just get the job done well and leave no trace.

Eco Friendly Natural Deodorant Packaging

Cruelty Free & Vegan Friendly

We then decided to only use plant based ingredients to enable our products to be friendly for the Vegan community. We are Vegan approved by The Vegetarian Society. We have always been against animal testing and our products are cruelty-free. We are endorsed by the Leaping Bunny programme.

Marine Conservation Society - Giving Back

Giving back is something we are proud to do and since 2016 we have supported the Marine Conservation Society, a UK based charity protecting our seas, shores and wildlife. We donate 10p from every product sold and thus far have contributed over £34.5k.

Fairtrade Certified Natural Deodorant

Aside of sourcing ingredients and materials from ethical suppliers, as we’ve grown we now only purchase Fairtrade Organic Coconut Oil which helps ensure the supply chain is good too so not only are farmers receiving a fair price we are also supporting the endeavors of Fairtrade by being Fairtrade Certified on the products that carry their logo.

Earth Conscious in the Future

With the growth of the Earth Conscious brand we have been able to introduce the essentially naked Bare Bar range of deodorants, a Delicate Range of Deodorants, a Baby Balm and a Moisturising Body Bar yet there is much more we would like to create with our Earth Conscious customers in mind.

Benefits of Using a Natural Deodorant

Benefits of Using a Natural Deodorant

There are many benefits of using a natural deodorant over conventional deodorants and antiperspirants but quite simply put, switching to a natural deodorant is a healthier choice all round. Think skin kind ingredients, kind to the planet and it won't cost you the Earth either and that will just about sum it up!

Natural Deodorant Ingredients 

The ingredients used in your natural deodorant are designed to be kind to the skin whilst working hard to eliminate body odour. They are not designed to stop you sweating.

Sweating is a natural bodily process performed for the purposes of keeping cool and removing toxins. The use of antiperspirants prevents this natural process from happening which doesn’t seem like a particularly good idea! Aluminium Salts are often used in antiperspirants to help prevent perspiration by blocking your pores. The Earth Conscious range of Natural Deodorants are free from aluminium.

Kind to the Environment

Other benefits of using a natural deodorant at least the Earth Conscious Range is that they are kinder to the environment too. The natural ingredients pose no harm to marine life or the environment at large when washed away from the skin and if that wasn’t enough, the packaging we use is recyclable and plastic free.

Saves You Money

Surprisingly to many there are actually financial benefits to switching to our natural deodorant too. A 60g natural deodorant balm or natural deodorant stick lasts at least 3 months and often much longer. And, our essentially naked Bare Bar Deodorant will likely lost even longer - see video below! At between 0.05p and 0.08p per daily use, it really is a very economical option.

Which Natural Deodorant works best?

Which Natural Deodorant works best?

Choosing a Natural Deodorant is a very personal thing. Earth Conscious has a wide selection of scents, formulations and a variety of application methods so there is something for everyone. These have been formulated since 2014 and are incredibly effective against body odour. 

Earth Conscious customers exist in their thousands and we are happy in our mission to keep people feeling fresh and confident whilst choosing a sustainable, eco-friendly product.

Which Natural Deodorant Works Best?

The entire Earth Conscious range of sustainable deodorants works in the same way. The natural ingredients tackle body odour. They are not designed to stop you sweating, an antiperspirant is required for that but they will eliminate body odour not just cover the smell with scent, so you can go about your day feeling fresh and confident.

Our core range is a good place to start. 

Natural Deodorant Balms packaged in a recyclable aluminium tin. Available in a variety of scents. These require application with fingers. A few small circular movements will provide enough product to apply to the armpit. One application after a shower in the morning should see you through the day. Each tin should last on average 12 weeks depending on how much you use - but a pea sized amount is really all that's needed. Coverage is excellent with this variety and our customers often liken it to moisturising your armpits at the same time!

Lavender Natural Natural That Works Best

The Natural Deodorant Stick is an excellent choice for those who may not be familiar with applying a balm to the armpit area or who may be completely new to this type of product. They are not that far removed from a conventional roll on in the way they apply but they are a much healthier aluminium free deodorant option. Apply directly from the cardboard push up tube, a couple of swipes should do the trick. 

Natural Deodorant that works best - Grapefruit & Lemon

The essentially naked Bare Bar Natural Deodorant alternative. We love our Bare Bar.  It's likely the most economical product we have with slightly more bang for your buck. Approximately 90g of powerful effective natural ingredients that may well last you 6 months. See our latest Bare Bar test here. 

 

Strong Protection Range of Natural Deodorants

In addition to our Core Range of Deodorants, we have a range that we like to call STRONG PROTECTION. These deodorants are formulated to be a little stronger and for those who need a little extra. Maybe you're physically active or work long hours (we've had hospital staff say these work well for them on a long shift), or maybe menopause is causing hot flushes and extra sweating!

Available in Mighty Mint or Indian Bay Leaf & Orange and both scents available in either a balm or a stick.

Which Natural Deodorant Works Best - Strong Protection

Delicate Natural Deodorant Range

And last but no means least, our Delicate range of Natural Deodorants. Designed for those who may be sensitive to Sodium Bicarbonate. However, It is important to note that it's not always the Sodium Bicarbonate that may be the cause of any sensitivity or irritation.

Essential Oils naturally contain allergens and whilst the levels we use in all of our products are extremely low and safe for use, it is still possible to be sensitive to one of the naturally occurring allergens. 

Our Pure Unscented products are a good starting place for anyone.

Be More Earth Conscious

Be More Earth Conscious

Be More Earth Conscious - what does that even mean?

For us, it is of course our brand but it is so much more than just our business. It is a way of life, a mindset. It’s the need to be more Earth Conscious for the greater good, for the health and happiness of our planet and everything living on it. It’s about understanding that small changes do matter. We may not be able to do it all, however, doing something opposed to nothing, is still the right way to go. 

If every single one of us made just one change because of health or environmental reasons (and we believe these two things are connected) then collectively we may even make a big difference!

Where Do We Start?

It could be refusing to buy plastic bottled water and instead carry a reusable bottle.

It could be refusing to buy that chemically laden beauty product in plastic packaging.

It could be focusing on minimising food waste.

It could be focusing on buying less or seeking second hand first.

Whatever the choice, even one better choice for health and environmental reasons is a start.

Being more green or health conscious is not an overnight fix or trendy fad and neither is it about living completely off grid in the wilderness or being a huge activist (although either of those choices are both admirable and totally cool), it’s just keeping it real and relative to our own daily lives whatever they may be and trying to be Earth Conscious within them.

Education and learning play a huge part and becoming more aware of what’s going on in the world around us and taking personal responsibility for the things that we can realistically change ourselves is ongoing work in progress.

We Are In It Together

Here at the Earth Conscious family, we are riding the life rollercoaster alongside you all and we realise that we can't do everything, we can't be everything to everyone but we can all work with what is available to us.  

Our choice is an Earth Conscious one. We take as much responsibility as we can for our health and happiness and know that everything is connected and the choices we make can and will ultimately come back and bite us on the bottom if we don’t take care of them.
