Celebrate Veganuary 2019 with Love Beauty And Planet’s range of animal and planet friendly hair care.
More people than ever before are trying out the Veganuary challenge this year by giving up meat and dairy for the whole of January. And whether you’re vegan or not, the rise in vegan beauty products proves that it’s no longer just what we eat that we need to be mindful of.
This is where Love Beauty And Planet, Unilever’s newest addition to their hair care offering, comes in. A 100% vegan range of hair, skin and body products, its ethically sourced ingredients and recycled packaging are changing the way we buy beauty.
Read on to learn more about the line and find out our recommendations.
Love Beauty And Planet: Our new vegan hair care obsession
From the shampoos and conditioners to their wider body and skincare products, every Love Beauty And Planet product is totally vegan, meaning you won’t ever find any animal-derived ingredients in the formulas – and this includes those we might not even think of, like gelatin and lanolin. They’re also free from unnecessary parabens and colourants.
When you think how many hair products we each get through in a year, that’s a whole lot of packaging. Love Beauty And Planet use 100% recycled plastic for their bottles and they’re currently also trying to find a way to make their caps and pumps out of at least 50% recycled plastic too.
You might notice that your shampoo bottle isn’t totally clear but don’t worry, this is normal. Because of the recycled plastic content, the colour of the bottles can vary ever so slightly from bottle to bottle.
And so that the waste-reducing cycle continues, they’re also 100% recyclable too. All you need to do is make sure they’re empty and clean and you can pop them straight in the recycling.
Responsibly sourced ingredients
The brand are dedicated to using ingredients that are ethically sourced from sustainable farmers and won’t negatively impact the ecosystem. For example, the shea nuts used in the Happy & Hydrated range are sourced from Ghana and Burkina Faso, where harvesting is a leading provider of jobs for women.
