Lets Talk Natural and Plastic Free Skincare & Deodorants

Lets Talk Natural and Plastic Free Skincare & Deodorants

Earth Conscious has always been a plastic free brand and our Sustainable Natural Deodorant products are natural and organic. That’s 100% natural. We do not use synthetic fragrances. When we say the product is a 100% natural deodorant, it really is. The natural organic ingredients are kind to your skin and the environment so it’s a total win win all round.

Sustainable Natural Deodorant

In terms of our product packaging, our Natural Deodorant comes to you in a sleek recyclable tin, a recyclable biodegradable or compostable cardboard tube or an essentially naked Bar which like to call the Bare Bar. If posted directly from us it will arrive in a Jiffy Green bag - so that’s no plastic bubble wrap sneakily hidden inside the walls of those postal envelopes.

Plastic Free Natural Deodorant

It is important to us to stick to our plastic free commitment and my goodness that has proved challenging at times.

We considered glass as a potential product packaging but of course there are obvious smashing issues and given our Natural Deodorant makes for a fabulous travel deodorant, we decided glass was not suitable.

Plastic applicators would be an easy option but we pledged from the go get not to go down that route. We have considered recycled plastic that could even be refillable but ultimately that still ends up as part of the micro-plastic pollution problem. Its great to avoid single-use plastic or minimise it's use but we prefer to keep it simple and remain at totally plastic-free natural deodorant.

Plastic Free Natural deodorant

Aside of the plastic-free side of things, we also ensure that Earth Conscious products are long lasting meaning that customers save money by making the switch and therefore need less. Over consumption an excessive waste is a big consideration for our brand. We only make products with purpose.  

Natural Plastic Free Deodorant

We do the best we can with the choices available to us. We choose Fairtrade Coconut Oil and carry the Certified Fairtrade Logo on many of our products. This helps support the farmers in the supply chain. 

We are against Animal Testing and are endorsed Cruelty Free as part of the Leaping Bunny Programme. Our products are approved Vegan Friendly by the Vegetarian Society.

Lastly, but most proudly we are long time supporters of the Marine Conservation Society, a charity who protects our seas, shores and wildlife. We give 10p from every single product sold. We are all in it together.

Eco Friendly Natural Deodorant

Eco Friendly Natural Deodorant

What makes a product Eco Friendly?

By definition, Eco Friendly means without harm to the environment so when creating the Earth Conscious natural deodorant products and indeed all of our products there are various considerations to make. 

100% Natural Ingredients

The ingredients used in our Earth Conscious deodorant are 100% natural. The ingredients are not harmful to our bodies nor are they are harmful to wildlife, marine life, or the environment at large.

Eco-Friendly Packaging

There is more to being Eco-Friendly than just the product itself. Product packaging is a huge part. Here at Earth Conscious, we do not compromise on our packaging and we do not use plastic.

Why We do not use Glass

For example, we could have considered using glass jars but the lid would also have to be plastic-free which is not a problem, however, we also need to look at the weight of our product. As well as being obviously more fragile, glass is heavier and more difficult to pack so using our tin or cardboard tube means we have a more functional and practical product whilst minimising the transport and packaging footprint.

Why We are Not a Refillable Natural Deodorant

We have also given great consideration to a refillable natural deodorant option but felt unless the case packaging was completely plastic-free or readily recyclable or home compostable it just added to the overall impact by complicating matters. We would need to be certain that a case made from bio-plastics, for example, was definitely readily recyclable kerbside in the UK or that it could be home compostable. Right now we don't believe that to be the case.  

Over engineering design thus creating extra waste through packaging is not something as an Earth Conscious Brand we can get on board with. Our products are small, lightweight and compact. They behave as applicator and refill all-in-one. Nothing to resend out every month because the products are designed to last. In fact just recently we discovered that our Bare Bar Range of Deodorants are likely to last 6 months! Now that's Value for Money too!

The packaging dilemma doesn’t stop there.

To continue on with our Earth Conscious eco-friendly ethics which are “to do the best we can with what we have available to us”, we do not use plastic postal packaging either. Your deodorant will arrive in Jiffy Green Bags. Larger orders are despatched in cardboard boxes with totally natural eco-friendly filling packaging - not a bubble wrap or polystyrene bean in sight!

Eco Friendly Christmas

Eco Friendly Christmas

Eco Friendly Deodorant

Here at Earth Conscious HQ, we continue to be mindful of the excess waste that can be created by the seasonal festivities and aim for an eco-friendly Christmas. Ours is shaping up a little like this thus far.

For the fourth year running now, our reusable advent calendar made another appearance. Ours was made from some new velvety pouches and recycled materials reclaimed from a craft bank. We fill it every year with chocolates and messages of Christmassy things to do. Admittedly this year we have failed on the *Christmassy* things to do as life as gotten in the way.

A Christmas Tree was needed this year as our old rescued from the recycling centre plastic tree returned to the recycling centre 4 years later due to our house move. So this year, we have a real tree, potted too! We can hopefully re-pot or replant and maybe even use again next year. Either way, the Christmas Tree will live on past this year’s event. Decorations, nothing new. Many collected over the years and some older than my 44 years that have been made by my own grandparents. It makes our tree always feel that little bit more special.

Christmas Food. This year again we are not buying too much. We are shopping locally instead of doing the big supermarket shop. This is a big saver on waste whilst supporting small local businesses too. We won’t cook too much and we will eat when we are hungry rather than because we feel we should.

A new one for us this year are reusable crackers. We absolutely loathe the crappy gifts that you get inside crackers. What a total and utter waste of resources not to mention the wasteful packaging. Then we discovered reusable crackers from Keep This Cracker. Keep the fun without the waste.

Gifts very scaled back again this year. Have tried to shop ethically and consciously as much as possible and not just for the sake of buying more stuff that nobody really needs or wants.

Gift Wrapping this year is using what we have leftover from last year plus we have a collection of gift bags that have been used previously too. Recycling! The children have fabric sacks that have come out year after year too. We may slip in some Cloth wrapping with ribbons too and will most certainly be using brown paper tape where possible instead of the plastic stuff. It is important when buying paper wrap to avoid the metallic all singing all dancing stuff because it is not easily recyclable so we will be bearing this in mind throughout the year now even for birthdays.

So that’s it for now. We do try to live by the ethos behind the brand *be more earth conscious* as best we can. Remember, it’s small steps and they do count.

Natural Deodorant that Actually Works and won’t Cost the Earth.

Natural Deodorant that Actually Works and won’t Cost the Earth.

We believe Natural Deodorant That Actually Works is probably now a search term of the past or not googled as often as it used to be. There is so much choice out nowadays that there will be something that suits most people.

Earth Conscious has been making natural deodorants since 2014. We have an extensive range of deodorants that work hard against eliminating body odour.

Skin Consideration

We believe it’s just as important to consider what you put on your body as what you do in it and given our skin is the largest organ of the body it is important to make sure that we look after it.

The Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant is aluminium free, paraben free, and contains no carcinogens or toxins. We use the highest quality natural ingredients. The ingredients are organically sourced and soil association certified where possible. 

Financially speaking, our deodorants won’t cost the earth. Fact is it won’t cost the earth in ecological terms either!

Just one natural deodorant balm or natural deodorant stick will last on average 3 months. These are affordably priced at just £7 per 60g and some of our customers say they've had their Earth Conscious Natural Deodorants for even longer. 

Our Bare Bar Natural Deodorant Range is possibly the most long lasting of the entire range. Just recently we discovered that 90g of product was on target for 6 months usage! So we estimate no matter whether you choose a Balm in a recyclable aluminium tin, a cardboard stick deodorant or the essentially naked Bare Bar the cost to your Natural Deodorant purchase is somewhere between 5p and 7p per day. 

We hope you agree that's a small price to pay for a healthier option for both your body and the environment. 

Support Marine Conservation

The natural organic ingredients when washed away will pose no danger to marine life or the environment at large and the packaging is completely recyclable. 10p from every deodorant sold is donated to the Marine Conservation Society in the UK. It really is a win win. You really can choose a natural deodorant that actually works and won’t cost the earth.

Looking for Alternatives to Antiperspirant?

Looking for Alternatives to Antiperspirant?

Looking for antiperspirant alternatives to help eliminate body odour?

You need look no further than our Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant. Our deodorant is totally 100% natural, it’s a natural deodorant that actually works! It eliminates body odour without harming your body or the environment.

Natural alternative to Antiperspirant

 

Why Look for Antiperspirant Alternatives?

Asking yourself “why should I look for antiperspirant alternatives in the first place?” Well, antiperspirants work by sealing in moisture and blocking the body’s natural process of releasing toxins and there have been reports linking aluminium with breast cancer and even Alzheimer's. Further studies need to take place in this field of medical research but in the meantime, why take the risk when there are so many other antiperspirant alternatives available. You don’t need to use an antiperspirant to remain socially acceptable! It is only really body odour that needs to be eliminated, not perspiration.

Not only that, the spray from antiperspirant pollutes the air, the chemicals released pollute our seas and harm marine life and the packaging pollutes the earth too so switching is not only better for your body but it’s better for the environment too.

Aluminium Free Deodorant

The Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant is an eco friendly deodorant and also aluminium free. Yes it’s made from 100% natural ingredients that you could eat (we don’t advise it!), but it’s also packaged in a sleek recyclable packaging meaning not a whiff of plastic packaging in site!
