Your beauty essentials don't have to be harmful to the environment.
When it comes to shopping for your makeup and skincare essentials, know that there are tons of eco-friendly options. And to help you start your zero-waste beauty journey, we rounded up 10 products you should consider switching to for the love of Mother Earth. Check them out below!
Solid Shampoo and Conditioner (P150/shampoo, P180/conditioner) from Ecobar
No plastic bottles? No problem. You can still have a healthy hair routine using shampoo and conditioner bars. Like soap, bars can produce a decent lather for a deep cleanse. Some are even infused with essential oils that address specific concerns!
Bar Soap (P180) from Suds
As long as it's packaged in recyclable paper, any kind of bar soap is an eco-friendly addition to your shower routine.
Refillable Liquid Soap (P170) from Ritual
If you prefer body wash, opting for one in a glass bottle is your best bet. Glass is completely biodegradable and a great reusable alternative for plastic-packaged products.

Reef-Safe Sunscreen (P299.75) from Human Nature
Some ingredients found in sunscreen like oxybenzone and octinoxate have been said to cause coral bleaching and damage to marine animals. Avoid them if you want to do your part in protecting the environment!
Reusable Facial Rounds (P150/15 pieces) from Greenpads
Instead of tossing out cotton pads every time you use your toner or micellar water, opt for washable pads. That's one less product off your shopping list every month!
Reusable Feminine Pads (P160 to P380) from Binibining Lakambini
Other than menstrual cups, you can also switch your regular feminine napkins with cloth pads that you can reuse every month.
Tooth Powder (P75) from Matenara
Want to ditch those toothpaste tubes? A glass-packaged tooth powder can give you that same fresh and clean feeling.
Bamboo Toothbrush (P199) from Human Nature
Since we replace our toothbrushes often, it's more eco-friendly to use ones made of biodegradable materials. For this, we highly suggest using a bamboo toothbrush instead.
Parker Safety Razors (P1,599) from Lazada
This one's a bit of an investment, but it's definitely worth it. Compared to disposable razors, you'll only need to buy this safety razor once and simply replace the blades when necessary.
Refillable Makeup Palette (P499) from Ellana Minerals
Shop for makeup like a pro by getting yourself a customizable makeup palette. Instead of purchasing several products with bulky plastic packaging, you can opt for small metal pans. This way, it's more travel-friendly, too!
