COTTON PADS / BALLS / ROUNDS
blog article here
  1. Flannel or muslin squares
  2. Reusable cotton rounds
  3. Biodegradable sponges

PLASTIC TOOTHBRUSHES
  1. bamboo with bamboo bristles,
  2. bamboo with charcoal bamboo bristles (watch for charcoal bristles as these may be nylon with added charcoal),
  3. wood with any type of the above bristles.

BODY WASH / SOAP IN PACKAGING
  • Soap bars without wrapping
  • Homemade soap (I've found some great ideas here: DYINatural, here: Wellness Mama and here: REBECCA'S SOAP DELICATESSEN)
  • You can also buy my favourite (comes in recyclable paper wrapping and is very delicate):
  • To make your own liquid soap (this a great way to utilise those leftover pieces of soap bars) you can follow this simple recipe: WikiHow: Make Liquid Soap
  • For my daily routine though I use the oil cleansing method for evenings and pure honey for mornings. See more here.
SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER
  • shampoo replaced with 1 tbsp of baking soda mixed well with one cup of water.
  • hair conditioner (strongly advised after using the above): 1 tbsp apple vinegar mixed with 1 cup of water to use like normal conditioner (massage into scalp, leave for 2 minutes and rinse). Followed by a hair endings treatment for damaged or weak hair: just spread some jojoba oil or coconut oil on your fingertips and massage in.


I'll write about COSMETICS on a separate page soon.
