Plastic Free Skincare Alchemy Oils

Alchemy OIls, Hair Remedies

We're a fan of Alchemy Oils here and these all natural hair remedies have had their own makeover. They now come in travel-suitable 50ml glass bottles and recyclable packaging. The vegan-friendly oils are inspired by Ayurveda, choose between blends to stimulate hair growth, treat hair loss and promote stronger hair.

By Sarah promotes itself as a 'transparent skincare company', from upfront labels about its ethically sourced, all natural ingredients to the amber glass bottles and jars. No plastic here. We love the cult, award-winning, vegan friendly Organic Facial Oil. Cruelty free and small batch, it uses apricot oil, pumpkin seed, argan and vitamin E for spectacular results.


Plastic Free Skincare Sister And Co

Sister & Co, True Cleanse Oil

Treat yourself to a bottle of Sister & Co's True Cleanse Oil. It comes in a heavy duty glass bottle and contains organic cold-pressed apricot, jojoba and grape oils infused with rose otto and frankincense for a gentle but hardworking everyday cleanser. A little goes a long way. Recycle the glass, keep the pump for the next bottle and repeat.

Organic skincare from Cornish brand Bloomtown

Bloomtown, Exfoliating & Moisturising Sugar Scrub

We've been a bit in love with plastic free skincare wonders, Bloomtown, and its sugar scrubs for a while. Not least because they come in fabulous glass jars and sum up everything wonderful about seasonal ingredients. And they're palm oil free, vegan friendly and made in small batches. Indulge in a big pot, return your empty jar to get star points to spend on new products. Everyone's a winner.
