This year, Malachite + Elephant's focus was on "Going Green", we shared our steps to making wiser beauty and wellness choice. We also researched and launched some new clean beauty products to make the switch easier for all of you.
As a reminder the steps were...
Process of elimination - you may choose to eliminate ...
In my case, I went totally 'cold turkey' on anti-perspirants and started using only natural deodorants. This was not an easy process and I quickly discovered that I had a sensitivity to deodorants containing baking soda. So I'm really happy that our supplier Mabrook & Co now makes a Sensitive skin Deodorant with no baking soda & also unscented.
I also stopped using a lot of products that list 'fragrances' as an ingredient. To date, there are no North American health regulations governing what is contained in 'fragrances'. This just means you have to do your research, not all of it is bad. We were really happy to also start offering an unscented version of the very popular TGIN Shea Butter + Olive Oil Soaps.
Armed with all of this knowledge; when do you start? as with any lifestyle change, timing is everything. Two things to consider are budget, what's in your current stash and your lifestyle.
When you've finally made up your mind, the fun part starts. That's trying all types of new products, researching blogs, sharing what works or doesn't work with friends and maybe even some DIY projects such as our Charcoal Mask.
Overall, this is not a time to commit to - there are so many new brands and interesting products and companies to try and a lot of them offer trial sizes. We only urge you to choose wisely, opt for cruelty-free, ethical companies and makers...and of course Malachite + Elephant is a great start ;) "
So how did you do in 2017? Will you continue on this journey? Are there any new products you'd like Malachite + Elephant to carry. We'd love to hear from you.
