It’s pretty obvious how Mother Earth has been crying for help with all the environmental changes we have been experiencing. And it is good to know that we are taking steps to minimize waste and carbon footprint– attesting to this is more and more brands are introducing sustainable and eco friendly products.
I never thought that a huge company of consumer goods, such a Unilever, would be part of this world of sustainable consumption. Early this year, they introduced a beauty brand, Love Beauty and Planet, here in the Philippines.
Love Beauty and Planet
Love Beauty and Planet started with one goal: To make you more beautiful and give a little love to our planet. They want to help make a little difference towards a happier, less wasteful planet, with every shower.
How sustainable are the products of Love Beauty and Planet?
- The ingredients are vegan, cruelty-free, and ethically sourced. They are free from harmful chemicals such as parabens, silicones, and dyes.
- The bottles (except the caps and labels) are made of recycled plastic and are 100% recyclable too.
- The conditioner has fast-rinse technology, which means less water consumption when used.
Love Beauty and Planet Collections
In the Philippines, Love Beauty and Planet has shampoos, conditioners, body washes, and lotions. They initially introduced 3 collections: Love Beauty and Planet Argan Oil and French Lavender, Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter and Bulgarian Rose, and Love Beauty and Planet Tea Tree and Vetiver. Recently, they introduced 2 more collections for summer: Love Beauty and Planet Coconut Oil and Ylang-Ylang andLove Beauty and Planet Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower.
Love Beauty and Planet Review
I have the first 3 collections and here are my initial thoughts.
Love Beauty and Planet Argan Oil and French Lavender
Lavender has always been one of my favorite scents in beauty/personal care products as it relaxes my senses. I love using this collection before going to bed. I like how the scent lingers, unlike other lavender products that fade easily, yet it’s not overpowering. The Argan Oil helps tame frizz and moisturizes the hair.
Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter and Bulgarian Rose
This collection is for color-treated hair. It promises to keep your hair color vibrant and your skin smooth and supple. And if you’re into sweet scent, you’ll surely love this.
Love Beauty and Planet Tea Tree and Vetiver
Love Beauty and Planet Tea Tree and Vetiver is the purifying collection. Tea Tree is not my usual choice of scent, but surprisingly, I like how invigorating and “clean” this collection smells. In fact, this is my ultimate favorite among the three.
Love Beauty and Planet prices: Shampoo PHP390/400ml, Conditioner PHP390/400ml, Body Lotion PHP390/400ml, and Body Wash PHP290/400ml. The products are available in select drugstores and department stores.
