Brand Spotlight | Ethique

Brand Spotlight | Ethique main image

This week we’re shining a spotlight on clean beauty brand, Ethique! If you’re already using Ethique products then you’ll know what we’re talking about when we say that this brand is revolutionising the way we use and consume natural skincare. Ethique takes the skincare products that we use every day, like shampoo, conditioner, cleanser, liquid body soap and deodorant and solidifies them down into bar form.

Yes it’s magical but it’s also clever! Solid bars have a multitude of benefits - as a concentrate, they last for a long time.

One bar of Ethique can last as long as five bottles of the same product in liquid form. Solidifying products into concentrated bars does away with the need for bottles, which negates the need for fillers, chemicals or preservatives to prolong the shelf life of their products. Not to mention the effect that reducing all that packaging has on the planet. If these weren’t enough reasons to celebrate Ethique, their lab in New Zealand is also powered by 100% renewable energy and they’re proudly certified climate-neutral. Here’s a selection of some of our best sellers, that we think you’re going to love too. Shop the rest of the collection here.   

In keeping with all things solid, Ethique have made a world class body lotion into a divine buttery block of Jasmine & Ylang Ylang. All butter blocks are made with 100% pure essential oils and no fragrances. Using Organic Cocoa Butter from Ghana, Organic Coconut Oil from Samoa and pure essential oils to create a bar that is easy to use, supremely hydrating and fabulous for heels, elbows or anywhere needing a little extra moisture. It can provide relief for eczema and dry skin along with being a great daily moisturiser from top to toe. Best used straight after a shower on damp skin. Equivalent to three bottles of lotion (250ml each.)

Saving Face is pure luxury; made with Cupuacu, Shea & Illipe butters and Rosehip & Pomegranate oils. These ingredients have high concentrations of antioxidants, phytosterols, polyphenols and fatty acids to promote firm, hydrated skin. You can use Saving Face in two ways; either as a nutrient and hydration booster under your normal face cream or as your only moisturiser. Best for normal to dry skin.

Truly the Superstar of the Ethique range, this multi-tasking wonder bar is a face cleanser, moisturiser and makeup remover in one. It’s suitable for all skin types, but especially dry skin, leaving behind a layer of hydration thanks to a winning combination of cocoa butter, kokum butter, coconut oil and cleansing castor oil. As an added benefit, sweet Orange essential oil helps break down oil and grease and leaves you smelling super sweet.

If you struggle with oily hair then St Clements solid shampoo bar is for you. In traditional hair care, harsh 'stripping' surfactants (foaming agents) only serve to create more oil. St Clements uses a unique blend of Rosemary, Juniper, Basil, Lime, Lemon and Orange extracts and oils to balance oil production, clean the scalp and freshen your hair up. Natural humectants draw moisture to your hair, without the oil which means you can do away with conditioner. Perfectly low maintenance!

Ethique have all your bases covered with their natural deodorant bars. ‘Glow’ is a gentle solid bar for all skin types that helps prevent body odour reduce perspiration. This deodorant is made without aluminium and baking soda which can occasionally aggravate sensitive skin. Instead it’s formulated with with a mix of aloe vera, bamboo and yeast, horsetail and sage extract. It’s infused with scents of spearmint and lime for a refreshing feel and smell.
