Ways You Can Make Your Beauty Routine More Eco-Friendly

Ways You Can Make Your Beauty Routine More Eco-Friendly

As you may well know, being eco-friendly means, you are not carrying out tasks that are harmful to the environment. itreatskin are passionate about sustainable living and we pride ourselves in our 100% eco-friendly product range. Maintaining a wholly environmentally friendly lifestyle can be challenging but fortunately for you, there are many eco-friendly alternatives engineered to work just as well.

It is vital for our world that we all choose eco-friendly alternatives to conserve energy and prevent pollution. By making changes to live a more sustainable lifestyle, we’ll not only help the environment, but we will also feel empowered as we are doing what we feel is the right thing to do. By setting a great example you may influence others and so the ripple effect will spread. The great news is that all itreatskin products are free from harsh chemicals, so they are better for your skin as well as for the planet.

Harsh chemicals such as toxins, parabens, alcohol, steroids, preservatives, and synthetic perfumes have no place in our products. But what about the rest of your beauty routine?

To be sure that your beauty routine is sustainable you can apply these eco-friendly tips:

1) All our skincare containers are recyclable – so make sure you:


Once you have finished with your container, clean it out and dispose of it properly in a recycling bin.


The ’Deep Impact face wash’ and ‘Hair and Beard Oil’ bottles both contain 50ml, the perfect travel size when you go on holiday. Keep your empty bottles to refill!


Our creams, oils and balms come in handy-sized containers that can be repurposed. Why not clean out one of our glass jars, get creative with some ribbon and upcycle them as a tea light holder.

2) Swap plastic applicators and accessories for these alternatives:

Cotton buds

Traditional cotton buds are made of single-use plastic. An estimated 1.8 billion are used every year in England alone and at least 10% are flushed down toilets, polluting our waterways and oceans. What is even more shocking, no matter how plastic-stem buds are disposed of, they can take up to 300 years to decompose completely!

The solution – choose the bamboo alternative. Now bamboo cotton buds are readily available on the high street and they are 100% biodegradable. They work just as well, if not better, and you can use a cotton bud guilt-free - while protecting the environment.


How many toothbrushes do you think you have used so far in your lifetime? It is estimated that the average person will use 300! Like cotton buds, you can now get your hands-on sustainable toothbrushes for a reasonable price.

Makeup brushes

Choose eco-friendly and vegan makeup brushes to match your itreatskin eco-friendly and vegan skincare products. You can easily get your hands on bamboo makeup brushes but unfortunately, although the handles may be bamboo, the heads may contain animal hair. Check that your bamboo makeup brushes have a certified vegan label.


Go old-school and use flannels to wash your face instead of synthetic wipes and pads. We tend to forget just how useful flannels are. As well as cleaning your face and body, they also exfoliate the skin leaving your skin smoother and brighter. Then once you are done you can wash and reuse them again.

We’d love to know what eco-friendly changes you’re making to your beauty routine. Maybe you have some additional tips that you can share with us – so why not let us know over on our social media profiles:
