5 natural shower products to keep you clean and green

 

In a world loaded with harmful chemical-filled cosmetics and products, it can seem almost impossible to green up your shower. But changes of attitude toward the environment and personal health are helping the world of organic products explode onto the scene in all their green glory. From organic hemp shower curtains, moss shower mats, and body-beautiful certified organic skin care products, it has never been easier to go green when you clean.

1. Plant-based shower cleaner

Shower and bath cleaners usually contain nasties like triclosan, so use a 50/50 vinegar and water spray to remove soap scum and mould. (Some distilled or white vinegars are derived from petroleum, so make sure you choose one made from malt or corn). If you want to buy a natural shower cleaning product, try the Ecostore Bathroom and Shower Cleaner, which is plant-based and cruelty-free.

2. Hemp shower curtain

A hemp shower curtain is a cool and classy addition to every eco-lover's bathroom. Hemp shower curtains are strong and water resistant and unlike PVC shower curtains, they don't release any VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Buy one at Etsy or here.

3. Organic moss shower mat

For the ultimate in eco-conscious living, a moss shower mat lives off the humidity in your bathroom and sucks up the water that drips off your body after a shower. It feels soft on your tootsies, too. You can buy them online or if you're really keen, make your own.

4. Certified organic bodywash

Soap can be tough on your skin, which we wrote about in this blog post. Our Pink Grapefruit Bodywash is a gentle foaming gel that leaves your skin clean, moisturised and silky smooth. Containing organic plant extracts and pure essential oils, it's suitable for babies and children and makes an excellent organic bubble bath.

5. Certified organic shampoo & conditioner

Our delicious smelling Botanique Shampoo and Conditioner are infused with herbal extracts, vitamins and essential oils to really nourish your hair and leave it looking amazingly shiny and conditioned. As an added bonus, they are both vegan products and are free from gluten and wheat. Read some independent reviews here and here.
