Natural solutions to excess packaging

Clair Whitty - Naturally Healthy

The wonderful thing about working in the natural health world is that it is driven by customers' requests for products.

Many of you are looking for products that come with less packaging, especially plastic, products that are vegan, cruelty free, and ones that contain only natural ingredients. You don't want palm oil, or anything that will harm the ocean. Here are some of the products that we have sourced at Natural Health Store:

Some people were asking about shampoo bars, and shaving soap bars. This is a simple way to reduce plastic. We found, Friendly soap shampoo bars, and locally made Wexford Scarlet Crafts Soaps. Both bars use pure essential oils, no palm oil or parabens, and are cruelty free. They're natural, gentle, and nourishing, kind to you and to the environment.

We have expanded our range of refillable household cleaning products to include shampoo, hand soap, and body wash. All you have to do is bring an empty bottle, any brand or size will do and we can fill it for you, you only get charged for the quantity that your bottle holds. These products are also available in 5 litre containers for you to dispense yourself at home.

Customers asked us could we stock reusable/washable face cleansing pads. Kindly Island is an Irish company who make reusable cotton face scrubbies. To use you wet them and use with your favourite facial cleansing product. We also stock their reusable sanitary care products. After use, you put them in a net bag and wash in the washing machine.

Other products we sourced include bamboo toothbrushes. Ben & Anna natural deodorant stick made with only natural ingredients, they're vegan, aluminium free, and are packaged in cardboard. Pitt Putty is an Irish made natural deodorant which is packaged in metal containers. We have toothpaste in glass jars. And 100% cotton ear buds with environmental friendly paper stem. We also stock Rokai All-Natural Sunscreen with only 4 ingredients this comes in a metal tin.

These are just some of the products that we have found that are both kind to you and to the environment, let us know if there is anything else you're looking for.
