Proving its long-term commitment to combat waste, Dove is reimagining what was once considered a throwaway item. Its first-ever refillable deodorant features a sleek, stainless steel case with a lifetime guarantee. Equally impressive is the groundbreaking formula: Dove’s aluminum-free deodorant range freshens and keeps odor at bay for up to 48 hours, and incorporates the brand’s iconic ¼ moisturizers to help skin feel soft and smooth.
In honor of this “buy once, refill for life” launch, Dove has consulted with A Plastic Planet, an organization that exists to “ignite and inspire the world to turn off the plastic tap.” The new refillable and aluminum-free collection offers consumers more choices for their underarms — and less waste in their routine.
2. Try a 2-in-1
Sustainable multitaskers, like Best of Beauty winner Love Beauty and Planet Volume and Bounty 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner Bar, cleanse and condition in one quick lather, leaving tresses with bounce, shine, and hydration, while eliminating plastic entirely. Bonus: Two-in-one options shorten your shower time, reducing water consumption.
The bar is particularly genius because it lathers and moisturizes gently to hydrate without weighing down hair. The vegan formula, infused with coconut oil, is divine for color-treated locks, keeping them radiant and vibrant without the use of silicones or dyes for impossibly healthy-looking, glossy hair. Plus, it contains sustainably- and ethically-sourced ingredients, making your hair, and carbon footprint, look good.
3. Reassess Your Daily Basics
Adding in reusable eco-friendly cotton rounds to your routine is a simple swap with a big environmental plus. Use them with a multi-purpose micellar water to gently swipe on your skin for a waterless routine. Simple Kind to Skin Micellar Water is a Best of Beauty award winner this year because it’s a multitasking marvel — makeup remover, gentle facial cleanser, and skin-hydrating booster.
The updated formula is the brand’s most advanced version yet — powered by gentle and effective cleansing micelles spheres to lift oil, makeup, and impurities, and boost skin’s hydration by a whopping 90 percent. Vitamin B5 softens and restores, vitamin E soothes, and the formula is fragrance-free, dye-free, and made with triple-purified water to help minimize irritation for sensitive and dry skin. Plus, the brand’s products are not only sensitive skin-friendly, but also you can feel good about using them as they’re PETA approved too.
“Simple small steps, collectively, make an impact,” says Walsh. So step up your game by incorporating these sustainable swaps into your daily beauty routine, and you …….
