5  Ways to Make your Beauty Routine more Sustainable

5 Ways to Make your Beauty Routine more Sustainable

1. Switch to Safety Razors

Every year, billions of disposable razors end up in landfills, and while their blades can be recycled, their plastic handle can’t. On the other hand, metal safety razors use no guards, plastic bumpers, or plastic handles. Instead, the blade alone is replaceable and doesn’t require you to throw the whole head away. A metal safety razor is a much more sustainable choice that serves exactly the same purpose. Safety razors also offer you a lot more flexibility for how you want to shave, the blades come in different numbers that offer you how close you want to shave and how long you want it to last.

2. Opt for Shampoo and Conditioner Bars

Using package-less products is an easy switch. We have a variety of shampoo and conditioner bars in stock for all hair types (yes curly hair too!) Bonus they also take up way less space in your bathroom [and last just as long] so you have more room for the fun stuff!

3. Take advantage of our Refillery 

We have a product Refillery in store so you can bring in your old bottles once you’ve used them up and refill them again and again. We offer refills of pretty much everything in store from skincare to hand soap and body spray.

4. Buy Refill pucks for your fav products

Along with our Refillery, we also sell pucks of different products that can be placed inside the old container such as our shave soap and deodorant. The beauty of these pucks is that you can use them without the container entirely. Our shave soap can be rubbed directly on your face or legs for an easy shave!

5. Support sustainable brands

We try to be sustainable and eco-friendly at OC. We choose the best options for our customers and the environment. We like to use glass instead of plastic or offer a way to lessen the amount of plastic we use! Also, we use organic and sustainably sourced products, an example would be palm oil. We use it in a lot of our products because there are so many benefits for your skin! Harvesting palm oil is resulting in major deforestation of some of the world’s most biodiverse forests, destroying the habitat of already endangered species like the Orangutan. But at OC we use organic and sustainably sourced palm oil...Save the Orangutans. It is one of our core values at OC to do good and be good for people and the planet.
