With green living the hot topic of the sustainable century, you have probably been wondering how to switch to a more ecological beauty regime at home.

Firstly, thank you for thinking about the planet and spreading kindness, no one wants a beauty regime the creates ugly problems for Gaia and the future of our world.

The good news is that you don’t have to give up your lifestyle to be sustainable, it simply comes down to finding better alternatives. The key to making sustainable choices is understanding why your choices matter and, here’s the wrap… they really really do!

Here are 5 eco-hacks and clean beauty tips you can adopt right now as you revamp your personal beauty routine to a greener lifestyle:

1. Change the Way you Shop

Buy ethically, buy locally and choose products which use fewer toxic chemicals, or which are 100% earth-friendly, such as Earthsap’s pure natural range of beauty products for him and her which are not only affordable but easy to use. Fragrant and natural, choose from face and body washes, shampoo and conditioner, roll on, toothpaste, toner, foam bath, aftershave cream and balm, foot powder and nature’s jelly.


We love the luxurious and invigorating Earthsap Citrus & Ginger Body Wash to shower you with energy at the start of your day. Its sensational natural ingredients include coconut to hydrate your skin, grapefruit and ginger to stimulate circulation and get the blood flowing and a non-toxic cleanse to rejuvenate you. You’ll find no synthetic fragrances, irritants or allergens in Earthsap’ s body care products; they’re non-toxic and gentle, ethically produced and not tested on animals.

2. Recycle Reckoning

There is no point switching to a more sustainable beauty regime if we are not recycling the produce packaging correctly. While most of us are pretty good at recycling our kitchen waste, we tend to fall behind when it comes to our bathroom and dressing room habits. Get a recycle bin for your bathroom or dressing counter and keep up the green work.


Instead of using single use face wipes and cotton pads, use a hot cloth cleanse to remove your makeup.

3. Waste Not, Want Not

Before recycling your empty beauty products when they start to run out, ensure you have used all the product in the dispenser, jar or serum dropper. This can be difficult especially when beauty packaging creates creams, serums and dispensers have been designed and sealed to keep the air getting to the product and reducing its potency.


Keep pliers or sturdy pair of scissors handy so you can open and separate the dispenser part from the body of the product and get the last drop out.

4.  Silicone Savvy

Get silicone savvy and save the environment. Silicone is everywhere but especially in hair conditioners, body lotions and face creams; it does not break down in the environment and may even be a hormone disruptor. It delivers smooth, slidable texture, glossy sheen and fills in pores and fine lines but it is literally a liquid plastic similar to the silicone you use to seal your shower stall. Using silicone can cause congestions and create a moisture barrier on your skin and hair. Using an organic product can deliver the same effect without the damage.


Make a homemade hair gloss by mixing one tablespoon of coconut oil with one tablespoon honey, heat gently until liquid, apply and leave on for 20 minutes before rinsing.

5. Extend your Reach

On your green journey be open to discover new, niche products that meet your expectations of a greener lifestyle and extend your care into the rest of your home with the Earthsap cleaning range; a safe and toxin-free alternative to conventional cleaners.
