Plastic fantastic? Well no ... We now know that plastic ends up in our ecosystem and causes major problems for people and the environment. Plastic is used in the packaging of cosmetic products. But did you know that harmful microplastics are also added to the ingredients of cosmetic products? Good news, things can be different!
Plastic-free cosmetics are the new normal. Be economical with yourself and the environment. Read on for more information about organic, natural cosmetics and the top 7 best Zero Waste cosmetics products!
What are zero waste cosmetic products?
Organic care products are good, zero waste cosmetics
is better! This prevents waste and is based on minimizing waste as much as possible. How? By making conscious and responsible choices for products that are ecologically sound. Zero waste cosmetics last as long as possible and use as little packaging as possible. The packaging materials are suitable for reuse or recycling.
Zero waste goes further than the environmental impact of plastic packaging
. Most cosmetic products also contain microplastics. Microplastics is the collective name for very small plastic particles that are almost impossible to see with the naked eye. These microplastics do not decay, so they are permanently polluting.
In addition, check where your zero waste cosmetic product is produced, so that it is not transported unnecessarily. This entails more CO2 emissions than is necessary.
Environmentally friendly and plastic-free cosmetics
A cosmetic product can be zero waste, but still contain many harmful chemicals that have negative consequences for the environment and your health. A lot of research is currently being done on this. We now know that parabens in products are harmful to health. But there are also small plastic particles in cosmetics, called microbeads. You can find them in shower gels, for example, and can be recognized by components such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate and nylon. Go for eco-friendly, plastic-free cosmetics and check the ingredients for the presence of microbeads
