All About Ethique

Better for Your Health
How does Ethique bars help with your overall health and well-being? For starters, each bar is made of naturally sourced components like cocoa butter, essential oils, sage etc. Also, most of them are preservative-free. Hence, no exposure to harmful chemicals.
Some of the bars have a small amount of 100% safe and eco-friendly preservatives in them to prevent the breeding of bacteria. They cater to different skin types and hair types, hence there is a suitable product for each of us.
Ethique and the Environment
As we mentioned earlier, all of Ethique’s products are made from natural ingredients. Also, the bars come in a completely biodegradable packaging. Even the wrappers are dissolvable and do not leave a trace. They don’t use any plastic bottles, wrappers or pouches that add to the landfill. That prevents more than 8000 bottles going to the landfill per consumer.
Furthermore, all the natural ingredients used to manufacture the bars are obtained by means that do not negatively impact the sources. None of their products are tested on animals and they regularly donate some of their profits to animal charities. Lastly, Ethique is certified Carbon Neutral by climatefriendly.com for all their efforts in saving the environment.
Longer Lasting – Hence Better for the Bank!
The Ethique bars last way longer than salon or drugstore brand products. This is mainly because they are in the solid form instead of liquid suspensions in bottles. They are extremely concentrated. The water is added by the users while using the bars instead of by the manufacturers. This helps the products last 5-6 times longer than others. That in turn means you buy them fewer times and hence save money.
