Hygiene and keeping clean is important to everyone. Its not like fashion or travel where theres a choice, but is important for our wellbeing. The maintenance of keeping fresh usually comes in small plastic solutions such as roll on deodorants, plastic toothbrushes and toothpaste. The good news is that there are new innovative alternatives to these classic staples in the bathroom. I recently started using these products below and here is my review on the items.
Bamboo toothbrush by Eco-Bru
Bamboo toothbrushes have been around for a while now, as I have mentioned before bamboo is incredibly sustainable due to the speed of growth and small amounts of water it requires to fully develop. I tried a few brands in the past but I always found most brands flimsy. This one has a sturdy round shaped shaft and depending on the colour of preference the bristles and end grip have a colour. I took this with me travelling recently and I have no complaints. I do hope they make these with charcoal soon as thats my favourite type of toothbrushes.
Deodorant by Elsas organic skin food
This deodorant is quite the fun gem. Liquid deodorants easy to apply with hands but this also came with a little wooden spoon if you don't want to use your fingers. You apply it directly on to the skin and it does the job! The product comes in aluminium which is infinitely recycle as well as one of the largest natural resources on the planet in terms of quantity. You can also reuse the tin for other purposes, like using it for storing home made soaps and shampoos.
Toothpaste by Truthpaste
Most (if not all) liquid toothpastes come in a plastic container. It comes in travel and full size. The first thing to point out about these toothpastes are that they dont foam so a little goes a long way when its mixed with water. Its made of all natural ingredients and if fennel isnt your vibe then go for the traditional peppermint flavour.
