1. grüum Hår Zero Plastic Revitalising Shampoo Bar
First up, we have the grüum Hår Zero Plastic Revitalising Shampoo Bar. Developed with sustainability in mind, this plastic-free shampoo bar cuts down on excess packaging. Instead, it’s wrapped in paper that you can recycle after.
The shampoo bar revives dull hair by enriching it with cocoa butter, giving you bouncy, shiny tresses that feel ultra-soft. Plus, each shampoo bar lasts up to 60 washes!
Retails for S$14.50 on LookFantastic.
2. Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
Everyone knows Burt’s Bees, but did you also know their products are also made with sustainable materials? This natural lip balm comes in an old-fashioned tin or a recyclable plastic tube, so go ahead and take your pick!
The lip balm moisturises dry, cracked lips with nourishing ingredients like lanolin, coconut and sunflower oils, and beeswax.
Retails for S$10 on Sephora.
3. West-Barn Soap Brows
This soap brow grooming kit is truly one of a kind. It has a great formula that instantly thickens brows and tames stray hairs in place.
West-Barn’s soap brows come with a wooden spoolie, so you can comb through your eyebrows with the formula that’s housed in a metal tin.
Retails for S$24.25 on Beauty Bay.
4. Floral Street Sunflower Pop Eau de Parfum
You have to take a whiff of this intoxicating perfume, which bears notes of passionfruit, honey, and mandarin.
Even better, Floral Street has switched plastic packaging to compostable cartons made of sustainably sourced pulp, as well as tissue paper and cellophane for sugar cane tubes.
Retails for S$97 on Selfridges.
5. Balade en Provence Solid Night Cream
Enriched with cocoa butter and apricot kernel oil, this night cream moisturises your skin as you sleep. Besides being a solid bar, Balade En Provence’s packaging is printed using vegetable dyes and is entirely compostable!
Retails for S$15 on Shopee.
6. Nuud Deodorant
What makes Nuud’s deodorant so interesting is that they do not use any aluminium, parabens, petrochemicals, or any other harmful chemicals in their formula. Instead, what it does is neutralise bacteria with micro silver.
One application is even effective for three to seven days! Unlike most deodorants, the deodorant comes in a bioplastic tube made from sugarcane! It’s also packaged in a biodegradable cardboard box.
Retails for S$17 on Shopee.
7. Jungle Culture Metal Safety Razor
Jungle Culture’s eco-friendly razor is made from high quality, durable chrome. They use double edge razor blades, which are secured easily into the tool. Since you can recycle and replace the razor blade, it also ensures a zero-waste shaving experience.
Retails for S$29.78 on Amazon.
8. StylPro Bamboo Barrel Makeup Remover Pads
Wipe away your makeup using StylPro’s Bamboo Barrel Makeup Remover Pads. These reusable pads are crafted from soft three-ply bamboo, allowing them to glide effortlessly across your skin. Each set consists of eight bamboo pads that are housed in a bamboo storage barrel.
Retails for S$23.50 on LookFantastic.
9. ATTITUDE Orange Leaves Natural Deodorant
Many of us tend to be a bit sceptical of natural deodorants and how effective they are, but this one’s a game-changer. ATTITUDE’s Orange Leaves natural formula helps absorb moisture and neutralise odours to keep you smelling fresh all day long.
It is also free of aluminium, parabens, triclosan, stearates, phthalates, talcum powder, and artificial colours. Their natural deodorant is clinically tested, hypoallergenic, and is also non-irritating for your skin. Plus, it comes in biodegradable all-paper packaging.
Retails for S$21.61 on Amazon.
10. Kjaer Weis Cream Blush
Kjaer Weis not only invests in refillable systems, but their products are also made with natural, organic ingredients, so they’re good for your skin too.
We recommend this sleek metal compact – it houses a buttery blush that gives the cheeks a subtle hint of dewy colour for a natural-looking flush. The shade ‘Sun Touched’ is also comparable to NARS’ iconic Orgasm Blush, making it an ideal sustainable swap.
Once you’ve scraped out every last bit, simply pop the empty tray out and replace it with a fresh one.
Kjaer Weis Cream Blush Makeup Compact retails for S$32.69 while the refill retails for S$43.59 at Revolve.
