Unfortunately, due to certain companies using unsustainable methods when manufacturing or delivering their products, the beauty industry has gained a reputation as a major polluter.
The production of certain unsustainable skincare products uses a lot of water, energy, and packaging materials, and they can also contain ingredients that are harmful to the environment.
But at White Rabbit, we make it our mission to use sustainable and natural ingredients in all of our products, and over the years we’ve learned the best ingredients that are good for your skin AND the planet.
Here are three of our favourite ingredients which you’ll find across our range of products:
Like all of the ingredients in this list, this oil is totally natural, being extracted from the seeds of the rosehip fruit. Rich in vitamins A and C, it’s very beneficial for skin (not to mention it also smells lovely!).
Rosehip oil is sustainably produced and not harmful to the environment, and is a key ingredient in our Coconut & Rosehip cream.
You probably recognise this ingredient already thanks to its medicinal properties!
Aloe vera is a natural plant grown in many different climates that can be produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
It’s also non-toxic and safe for most people to use, so it’s a good choice for people with sensitive skin or allergies. It’s an important part of our Orange & Aloe Reviving Toner, as well as many of our other products that you can find on our site.
This oil is obviously extracted from coconuts, and is rich in fatty acids which are beneficial for the skin. There’s no harm to the environment, and when used in creams, it feels so soothing and smells amazing. You can find it in a variety of our products, like our Lime and Coconut Cleansing Water.
There are so many sustainable ingredients available, but these three are just our favourites because of their minimal environmental impact and the great effects they have on skin.
When choosing skincare products, it is important to look for ingredients that are good for your skin and the planet. Using products that are natural and ethical is our primary concern at White Rabbit, and we make sure everything in our sustainable skincare range follows this philosophy!
