A Zero Waste Personal Care Guide – The Source Bulk Foods
  • Order Online
Having a zero-waste personal care regime can be one of toughest challenges to living a zero waste lifestyle. It is a challenge that we at The Source Bulk Foods have struggled with personally, so when we sat down to look at how we can help our customers achieve their Plastic Free July goals we decided to revamp our personal care range with all sorts new and wonderful zero waste goodies! Here we go:
  • HAIR CARE

     

    Our refillable Bramely’s Shampoo & Conditioner, and our Shampoo Bars means you have the basics covered, but now you can also buy and refill Dry Shampoo made from arrowroot powder and grapefruit peel essential oil. Beauty Kubes are U.K made solid shampoo & conditioner bars that are incredible for either oily or dry hair, and fantastic for all those intrepid travellers out there who want to work around liquids limits! The all-purpose hero of our personal care range is Argan Oil, which can be used for just about everything including taming frizz and fly-away hairs, nourishing split ends and building stronger, healthier hair.

  • FACE CARE

     

    Try our new Face Mask Powder made from French Green Clay and Chamomile. It  is fantastic for drawing out impurities from skin pores and by doing so tightening and minimising their appearance and reducing blemishes. Argan Oil (there it is again!) is a great moisturiser leaving dry or tired skin feeling more hydrated and as it is high in Vitamin E it is known to be a powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory helping to prevent and reduce stretch marks and other scarring on the skin. You can also take care of your lips with our Plastic Free Lip Balm from a local aromatherapist in Brighton – and of course it is vegan friendly and cruelty-free! Also, we have our re-usable Make-Up Remover Pads

  • SKIN CARE

     

    Shea Soap Butter is a fantastic moisturiser, full of fatty acids and antioxidants to help soothe dry skin and eczema and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Our Argan Oil (yes, again) can help prevent and reduce stretch marks and scarring on the skin. Pitt Balm Deodorant is a natural, grapefruit scented deodorant for men and women. There is just a hint of organic grapefruit essential oils in each pot which is pleasant to the nose but subtle enough not to interfere with your perfume, aftershave, or natural body scent.

  • MOUTH CARE

     

    Zero waste mouth care products have been on our shelves since we first opened. You will be able to find all the staples needed for a proper mouth care regime. Geo-Organic Toothpaste has a fluoride free and SLS free formulation making it an ideal replacement to commercial whitening toothpastes, available in English peppermint and activated charcoal flavours. We also have refillable natural Geo-Organics mouthwash tablets. Both the toothpaste and mouthwash tabs are perfect for travelling and are a more eco-friendly alternative to traditional products as in addition to coming in less packaging they eschew the unnecessary transportation of water. Finally you can find plastic free Dental Floss, including refills and a range of adults and kids Toothbrushes.
