What are sustainable products?
“Environmental consciousness” sums up the concept of sustainable products. The meaning of using sustainable products is to choose products that meet your beauty needs without having a negative impact on the environment or people. It’s about being interested in the product as well as the process of making it, that is being aware of where the brands source their ingredients from and the packaging that they use. This is because people are now understanding the impact of eco-friendly products in their life. The benefits of green beauty products extend beyond trends and the eco-friendly market is growing rapidly and consistently today.
Why should you use sustainable products?
It matters as using harsh chemicals takes a huge toll on the environment. It’s not only the animals that benefit but using plant-based ingredients is better for humans, too. Sulphates, parabens, and other chemicals in beauty products deplete natural resources and generate more greenhouse gases than any other sector.
How to make your beauty routine sustainable?
Living sustainably isn’t as hard as it seems, all you need to do is be a little conscious and aware of what you use. Here are super simple ways to make a huge difference –
• Opt for sustainable packaging
Go for products that are made from reusable, recyclable, or refillable packaging instead of plastic that can damage marine life to a large extent. No doubt that plastic can be recycled, but the amount of solid waste it generates is becoming a huge problem.
• Choose cruelty-free ingredients
See to it that the products you use do not cause any harm to animals and the natural habitat. Seek vegan products having natural ingredients instead.
• Switch to non-toxic materials
Yes, silicone is better compared to plastic but isn’t the most environmentally friendly material. The production of silicone happens through hydrocarbons derived from petroleum, which is not sustainable. When it comes to parabens, releasing them into environmental compartments may lead to severe environmental pollution, which will again directly or indirectly affect the environment. Hence, it is best to stick to natural products made from silicone-free, paraben-free, sulphate-free materials.
