Zero waste: why adopt solid cosmetics?

Are you seeing them everywhere these days? Solid cosmetics are on trend! They are practical and ecological. You can now find many cosmetics, which you use in your daily routine, in solid version: toothpaste, deodorant, make-up remover, shower gel, shampoos, conditioners or soap, for example. They are becoming a must-have for both your skin and our beautiful planet! We explain in this article why, if you haven't already done so, you'll love adopting this consumption method!

What is solid cosmetics?

To consume solid is to choose to consume products with a formulation without water and especially without chemicals and preservatives ! Indeed, water alters the product over time and it is then necessary to add preservatives in the formulas to extend their life, which is not the case in solid cosmetic products.

Why consume a solid product?

It's ecological!

We tend to accumulate bottles in our bathrooms. Solid products limit containers and packaging. In fact, on average, a 50g solid shampoo is equivalent to two 250ml bottles, which is a huge amount less plastic in the ocean! In addition to not being composed of water and preservatives, solid cosmetics do not contain toxic components (silicones, sulfates, parabens, surfactants, aluminum salts, etc.). The choice of ingredients and natural active ingredients used makes them even better for our environment.

It's economical!

The use of a solid cosmetic lasts longer than a classic cosmetic. A solid shampoo, for example, can last several months! On average, 8 out of 10 women wash their hair every day compared to 30% of men. One pebble of solid shampoo is equivalent to 25 to 30 washes. We can therefore imagine that if you wash your hair every day, a solid shampoo will last you a month, while a bottle of classic shampoo will last you 2 weeks.

It's effective!

We are often reluctant to use cosmetics for fear that they are not very effective or not at all. Does a solid shampoo lather? Is it really effective? Does it moisturize and/or nourish my hair? Will my hair be soft? These are the questions that may be preventing you from taking the plunge and using a solid shampoo, for example. But solid cosmetics are just as effective as liquid cosmetics! The use of a solid shampoo is more powerful than a liquid shampoo both in its duration and in its effectiveness. It is easier to space out shampoos, because your hair can regenerate more easily between each shampoo.

It's nomadic!

It is very often difficult to carry our large bottles during a trip or a weekend. Carrying a solid cosmetic is very practical: there is no risk of it leaking into your belongings and it is very easy to store because of its small size. The big plus? Some cosmetics can have several uses at once for different parts of the body, which makes the products even more transportable!
