The Bare Bar - Earth Conscious gets Naked

The Bare Bar - Earth Conscious gets Naked

The Bare Bar is here at last!

You may have noticed that our coming soon sign for this new natural deodorant product has been sitting on our website for some time. We are now very excited to announce that after working on this product for so long, our (click here) Earth Conscious Bare Bar is here and we are so happy with it. 

 

Unpackaged Bare Bar - Natural deodorant


What is the Bare Bar?

It is a natural deodorant bar that is designed to have minimal packaging. It looks similar to a chunky bar of soap but feels like our Natural Deodorant Stick (although a little more solid). To use it, simply run it over your armpits and either rub it in or leave it to soak in for some minutes before you get dressed. The amazing active ingredients get to work on reducing the bacteria and fungus that are present in your underarms, thus stopping the odour from occurring. 

The ergonomic Bare Bar has been designed as a lovely shape to hold, it has a curve to it and this makes it really easy to glide across your armpit area. We are finding it so easy just to pick up and apply. It weighs a nice and chunky 90g so there is plenty of product there to keep you going for a few months. 

Amazing ingredients

The Bare Bar contains the same high quality and natural ingredients as our other deodorant range. Our ingredients include skin softening coconut oil, shea butter, bicarbonate of soda and vitamin E oil, for extra nourishment. We ensure that our ingredients are always Soil Association certified organic where it is possible to source them as so. And of course, our fragrance is only ever essential oils, giving you a natural boost. 


Receiving the Bare Bar

We send your Bare Bar out to you in a simple paper wrap so that you have somewhere to keep it, and a small leaflet with instructions and ingredient information and that is it, as simple as it gets! You can use the lovely paper wrap to carry your Bare Bar out and about with you if you wish. The paper wrap is both recyclable and home compostable when you are finally finished with your Bare Bar. 

Earth Conscious Bare Bar - Grapefruit & Lemon

Less is More

The environment is always a key focus for our product range. We do not over-package, over-engineer or over-complicate. Keeping it simple and functional with good quality ingredients that get the job done! Less really is more. 

Minimal packaging is best for the planet so we have that covered, plus naturally, your deodorant will be posted to you in plastic-free, 100% recycled postage packaging. On top of this pledge, we also ensure our ingredients don’t pose any threat to marine life or the environment when they are washed away, and we continue to donate to the Marine Conservation Society with every product sold in support of their efforts for our seas.

Why We Don't Use Plastic

Why We Don't Use Plastic

The Earth Conscious Natural Deodorants come in sleek yet functional tins. We have been asked why we use aluminium tins and not plastic or glass. Well the answer is this.

Our tins are lightweight and easy to package meaning the resources we need to use to get them to you in one safe piece are less. This is a bonus when green credentials are high on our list of priorities. They take up less space in a postal sack at the post office and thus in the transportation of them too - again less resources is a win.

They are also reusable and recyclable.

Aluminium is both abundant and sustainable.

Plastic for us is not an option at present. We keep an open mind and would be happy to research the use of recycled plastics perhaps in the future. Glass also a possibility but extra packaging costs both to the environment and to finances of which would inevitably mean a higher costing product for our customers isn’t something we are keen on.

Part of the Earth Conscious concept and ethic is that natural and organic products should not be unaffordable. Natural products should be affordable and accessible to all if we are to make a bigger impact on the world.

Plastic Free Tea Bags

Plastic Free Tea Bags

In our Earth Conscious endeavours to minimise our plastic consumption, I recently discovered that many tea bags actually contain plastic! Yes plastic. Surprised? I certainly was. I always thought that tea bags were fully compostable but turns out they’re not.

I have been buying organic tea for a while now to avoid the teas that may have been treated with pesticides but now the comforting thought that surrounds having a nice cup of tea feels somewhat toxic again.

Apparently some tea bags are treated with epichlorohydrin which is used in plastics and glue and in the case of tea bags, helps hold them together. I don’t know what the exact risks are but I don’t fancy the toxins from that seeping into my drink.

Here at Earth Conscious when we learn about something like this we choose the route of caution. If we can find a healthier option and make a better choice for the environment then we will.

However, choosing tea bags which are organic is one thing, where the box isn’t plastic wrapped is another but to find plastic free tea bags is definitely harder, particularly affordable choices.

We have found TeaPigs. They use biodegradeable corn starch for their tea temples and have other good green credentials. However, the loose tea remains the most economical option. 

For now I have switched from bags to loose tea. Wish I had kept that leaky teapot now!
