Plastic-free beauty is on the rise as consumers focus on becoming more sustainable in their product choices. One of the pioneering examples in this eco-conscious category is Lush’s Naked Line. From the honey-infused body scrub that exfoliates and moisturizes to the Winter Berry Soap which boasts “no trash glitter,” the company has perfected the formula of the solid, plastic-free beauty product and as a result, offers a rich variety to consumers with unique preferences. The trend of plastic-free beauty has also permeated other key categories of the industry, including sunscreen and even deodorant.
For plastic-free July, this round-up of products boasts a catalog of some unique options on the market. The move toward more sustainable solutions is an important one as “packaging accounts for 161 million tons of waste per year.” Since the debut of Lush’s Naked Line, for example, the company has been able to cut down by 3,417 tons of plastic.
