Sustainable skincare shopping

Sustainable is a buzzword these days when it comes to pretty much everything we use and buy, and packaging is a mega causation of pollution and plastic.

Brands are making mega efforts to ensure their products are sustainable and cruelty free. I am glad to say in my decade of beauty reviews, I have seen the packaging and ingredients become more planet friendly.

Haan is already familiar to a lot of people thanks to its purpose driven manifesto to reduce plastic use and waste in the beauty industry and help fight the global water crisis by funding the construction of wells in developing countries. Its range of personal care products include their leading pockets hand sanitiser, hand soap, hand cream, body wash, body lotion, deodorant and toothpaste.

Packaged in sleek refillable and recyclable bottles, Haan sticks to its conscious brand ethos with natural ingredients, prebiotic formulas and fresh clean scents. Their refills are pouches with spouts and the scents are incredible. You can buy the hand soap refills to just fill up an existing soap dispenser but the bottles are so cool on the sink too.
