Celebrate Earth Day with LATHER's Natural Skincare

Earth Day is more than just a date on the calendar; it's a celebration of our planet's incredible bounty. We are dedicated to harnessing the power of nature to create skincare solutions that are effective for your skin and gentle on the environment. But can a beauty brand truly make a difference in the world? The answer might surprise you.

An Edelman study explored this concept, revealing that 65 percent of consumers are drawn to brands with strong beliefs and values that extend beyond mere selling. Furthermore, 57 percent actively avoid brands that do not align with their social or political views. This shift in consumer behavior underscores the importance of brands adopting socially responsible practices. That's part of why every day is Earth Day for us!

Ingredient Spotlight: Nature Meets Skincare Innovation

Let's delve deeper into the magic behind some of our popular natural skincare and wellness products:

  1. Coconut Body Foaming Scrub: Pamper your skin with this gentle exfoliating scrub featuring sustainably sourced coconut shells and botanical extracts for a radiant glow. The coconut shell particles buff away dead skin cells, revealing smoother, softer skin underneath. Meanwhile, the botanical extracts nourish and hydrate, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and renewed.

  2. Bulgarian Rose Phytonutrient Elixir: Indulge in the luxurious hydration of organic Bulgarian rose and Madagascan ylang-ylang combined with oat extract to replenish your skin's moisture barrier. This elixir is like a bouquet for your skin, delivering a surge of hydration and antioxidants. The rose and ylang-ylang oils soothe and calm sensitive skin, while oat extract adds a layer of protection, keeping your skin nourished and resilient.

  3. Eucalyptus & Clay Soap: Experience the deep cleansing power of mineral-rich clay, which draws out impurities while olive oil conditions and softens your skin. Thanks to the balancing properties of eucalyptus and the moisturizing benefits of olive oil, this soap is ideal for those seeking a deep clean without stripping away natural oils. Treat yourself to a spa-like experience every time you wash with this invigorating soap.

  4. Lemongrass Wasabi Hand Wash: Cleanse and invigorate your hands with the refreshing blend of lemongrass and wasabi essential oils. This hand wash effectively cleanses and leaves a rejuvenating scent that awakens your senses. Lemongrass is known for its antibacterial properties, while wasabi adds a unique twist to your hand-washing routine.

  5. Yuzu Bergamot Hair Collection: Revitalize stressed hair with the citrusy essence of yuzu and sweet orange bergamot, both sustainably sourced. This collection gently cleanses, restores moisture, and adds shine, leaving your hair nourished and vibrant.

Sustainable Practices for a Healthy Planet

LATHER's commitment to sustainability goes beyond natural ingredients. Here's how you can join us in celebrating Earth Day with an eco-friendly skincare routine:

  1. Reduce Waste with Reusable Products: Say goodbye to disposable makeup remover wipes that contribute to landfills! Instead, opt for reusable bamboo, cotton, or microfiber pads. These gentle alternatives are not only effective at removing makeup but can also be machine-washed and reused countless times, significantly reducing waste over disposable options. Choose soft pads that feel soft on your skin yet strong enough to tackle even the toughest mascara. Look for brands that offer a mesh laundry bag specifically designed for these reusable pads to keep them organized and maximize their lifespan.

  2. Conserve Water: Every drop counts, especially in a world facing water scarcity. Be mindful of water usage in your daily routine. Turn off the faucet while cleansing your face or brushing your teeth. Consider taking shorter showers, ideally under five minutes. Installing a low-flow showerhead can reduce water consumption without compromising your showering experience. Explore water-saving techniques like the "navy shower," where you turn off the water while lathering up and rinsing.

  3. Look for Sustainable Packaging: We prioritize using recycled materials. Look for brands that are transparent about their packaging practices. Choose products housed in recycled plastic, or glass containers whenever possible. By supporting brands committed to sustainable packaging, you can send a powerful message and encourage positive change within the beauty industry.

  4. Add a Recycling Bin to Your Bathroom: Enhance your bathroom setup with a recycling bin dedicated to personal care product packaging. This simple addition reminds you to recycle items like shampoo bottles, deodorant containers, and skincare packaging. It's an easy step toward reducing waste and supporting a healthier planet.

  5. Make the Most of Your Products: Before recycling, ensure containers are empty. Get creative—use a spatula to scoop out the remaining creams or gels, maximizing every drop. Rinse containers thoroughly to prepare them for recycling and minimize waste.

  6. Finish Before You Purchase: Embrace the beauty of finishing what you have before buying new products. This mindful approach not only saves money but also reduces unnecessary waste.

  7. Repurpose Empties: Give empty containers a second life. Use cleaned toner bottles for travel-sized shampoos or repurpose jars as jewelry holders. Old mascara wands can serve as eyebrow groomers, and serum droppers are handy for measuring essential oils.

  8. Be Mindful of Ingredients: Pay attention to product ingredients. Choose vegan options to protect ecosystems and conserve water. Avoid harmful ingredients like microbeads and synthetic chemicals that can harm aquatic life.

  9. Swap Single-Use for Reusable: Transition from single-use items to reusable alternatives. Swap disposable makeup wipes for reusable pads made from sustainable materials. Embrace washcloths over plastic poufs and opt for steel safety razors instead of disposables. These simple changes make a big difference for the planet while maintaining your skincare routine.

By incorporating these practices into your skincare routine, you'll care for your skin and contribute to a healthier environment. Join us in celebrating Earth Day every day with mindful choices and sustainable habits.
