For World Oceans Day, Ethique launched plastic-free, compostable lip balms that are made with only fair trade, sustainably sourced and plant-based ingredients. The lip balms themselves are made with ingredients like cocoa butter and jojoba oil sourced directly from local farming cooperatives in Rwanda, Ghana and Samoa. Packaged in 100% home-compostable tubes, the nourishing lip balm products are available in varieties like pink grapefruit and vanilla; cooling peppermint; decadent chocolate and even tinted sticks.
Mintasy, was made as an alternative to the 80 billion plastic shampoo and conditioner bottles thrown out globally every year. Since then, so much has changed, but sustainability is still at the heart of everything we do. Our ingredients remain: cruelty free and vegan, palm oil free, ethically and fairly sourced, we still pay staff a living wage, donate 2% of sales to charity and are 100% plastic-free.
We don’t just make shampoo bars now either. We’ve ventured into skincare and products for your home and pets, with plenty more exciting products in the pipeline. All with the goal of preventing plastic bottles from being made and disposed of in landfills around the world.
