Welcome to Beauty Without Plastic

Join me to share and review the latest in our favourite Eco Beauty & Personal Care Products in non- plastic packaging. 

Collaborate, share and be part of spreading the word – that we can make naturally packaged, beauty choices, to delight us in our daily care routines and preserve the beauty of our natural world. 

The Beauty & Personal Care Products contribute massively to the nation’s plastic landfill waste, with some claiming that together, they make up an alarming, one third of all landfill waste.

So why, when we go to the trouble of sourcing ‘green’ or ‘Eco Luxe’ beauty products, do we accept them in plastic packaging? Is it due to a lack of availability in other more natural materials or because we simply do not prioritise our search for products in non-plastic packaging?

I hope that we can be part of a powerful change, by sharing and raising public awareness of the alternative, naturally packaged products, that are already available; increasing supply and demand, in this area, of one of the largest global industries.

Whilst we are getting up and running, why not take a look at Totnes, Devon, based Green Fibres’ beautiful natural products, for some inspiration?

I look forward to posting & sharing your wonderful ideas very soon & you can contact me @ jowoolvett@icloud.com.

GINGER STONE’S Soothing Face Mask for Sensitive Skin 100% natural

Here is a mask I Love & always want to have in my collection another beautiful @beautywithoutplastic product.The simplicity of it’s packaging a glass vial & cork stopper really appeal to the dreamer in me for a second or so I drift off to sea with the glass vial bobbing in the waves waiting to be washed up in the surf on a sunny shore it’s cork stopper keeping the message safe & dry what does it say, who is it from🏝…anyway enough dreaming of messages in bottles back to the mask.

.✨In a world where masks have a vast array of amazing ingredients & some are even purported to blend nature with science & can also have hefty price tags Soothing Face Mask @gingerstone.skincare has just 3 beautiful ingredients & every time I use it my skin feels & looks amazing, soft, smooth,plumped, calm & glowy it contains Rhassoul Moroccan Soap Clay, Raspberry Powder & Honey Powder. It is beautiful simply blended with water or if you wish to get more adventurous I Love to blend with Live natural yoghurt which encourages me to massage the mask into my skin more & I find it stops the clay drying on the skin so quickly. It can also be blended with Flower Hydrosol’s or Coconut Milk you can add Apple Cider Vinegar or a few drops of Facial Oil & I have been known to open up a Charcoal capsule & blend in to give an added exfoliating action. The dry powder masks allow you to customise to your skins needs I find this both exciting & inspiring.

.✨Please see the second picture for my latest blend simply mixed with Live Natural yoghurt, looks good enough to eat pictured along with my Olive Wood Masking Bowl & porcelain scoop from @islaapothecary

.💫All the ingredients are Organic, Food Grade & Cold Blended & it’s stunning unique little pot with it’s snuggly fitting lid has natural antibacterial properties as an extra bonus.💫

.💫It has a creamy rich scent with a gentle hit of zingy fresh Peppermint & it’s texture albeit thick -please see 2nd & 3rd pictures -it certainly doesn’t coat the lips only a small amount is required to nourish & moisturise.💫

.💫Due to the inclusion of Poppy Seed Oil lips are left with a slight glossy finish.💫

.💫Other flavours are available if you aren’t a mint fan – Orange & Cinnamon – Lemon Lip Balm – both these balms contain Pomegranate & Rose hip Seed Oils – Also Organic Black Seed & Lemon Balm Lip Saviour.💫

.💫I can definitely recommend this light but nourishing lip balm . I will leave you with the Star Studded Ingredients-
