Is it possible to continue our beloved beauty journeys while respecting the planet? Yes! We go green. How? By choosing sustainable beauty brands like OC Naturals.
The beauty industry has brought us a bucket load of goodness: beautiful products, fantastic formulas, and solutions for even the rarest of skin conditions. And for that, we say thank you.
But, the beauty industry’s highs can’t be celebrated without discussing the lows: rapid consumerism, environmentally-damaging packaging and tonnes of landfill dumping… Unfortunately, that’s a reality for a lot of the beauty brands out there.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. As end consumers we do have a choice about which type of beauty brands we support. Not sure where to start? Allow us to help!
If you’re looking for an affordable and sustainable beauty brand, meet OC Naturals.
You’ve probably attempted to reduce your cosmetic consumption in the past and picked out products that are better for the environment, but then tripped at the one major hurdle: cost. And that’s because up until recently, “green beauty” almost always came with a hefty price tag.
But now, there are incredible beauty brands championing sustainability while protecting your purse strings. One brand which has recently caught our attention is made in our own backyard, OC Naturals. They have created a range of stunning Australian sustainable beauty products that ticks all the boxes.
The brand refuses to test on animals or use any animal ingredients in their formulas (which means everything is completely vegan). They are also certified cruelty-free, plant-based, made with natural ingredients and use recycled and recyclable packaging.
To help you get started on going green, we’ve rounded up our favourite eco-friendly products from the OC Naturals range. This way, you can pick any of the following items knowing full well that these gems are contributing to good hair and skin and not a single drop of damage – oh, and they won’t drain your bank account!
Say HELLO to cruelty-free shampoo
The hack to finding shampoos that won’t hurt the planet is to spot ‘vegan shampoo’ labelled on the bottle – just like it is on the OC Naturals Coco Repair Shampoo. Formulated with organic Coconut Oil and natural KeraDyn, this little recyclable bottle is sure to nourish your hair while protecting the planet.
…and then follow it up with this cruelty-free conditioner
Obviously it’s best practice to combine a cruelty-free shampoo and conditioner of the same range to reap all of the benefits, so grab the OC Naturals Coco Repair Conditioner while you’re shopping. This beauty also uses Coconut Oil in its paraben-free formula.
Treat yourself to the best type of organic body wash
Hands down, the greatest natural body wash is one that is soap free, plant-based and lets the right ingredients do the talking. That’s why we’re loving the sound of the OC Naturals Moisturising Vanilla Ylang Ylang Body Wash which oozes the scent of Vanilla Ylang Ylang while the Brazil Nut Butter deeply hydrates your skin.
And don’t forget an organic hand wash
Like the rest of the world, we certainly upped our hand wash game last year, and spoiler alert: it will remain a priority for 2021 and beyond. So with hand sanitiser remaining a staple, it looks as if dry hands are here to stay as well.
Or maybe not – you just need the right hydrating antibacterial handwash to keep your hands feeling soft and smooth in between hand-san applications. The OC Naturals Antibacterial Lemongrass & Ginger Hand Wash leaves a delicious scent on your hands while killing 99.9% of germs.
Go green with your beauty routine!
And there’s four stunning products to kickstart your clean beauty routine without breaking the bank. To shop them all in one spot, be sure to head to OC Naturals’ website.
