Brushing your teeth the natural and earth friendly way

beauty

Introducing Colgate’s first bamboo toothbrush – the Colgate® Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush.

The handle is made with 100% natural, biodegradable bamboo and is free from plastic packaging, so it’s a great choice for environmentally conscious shoppers.

The brush features tapered slim-tip bristles infused with Binchotan charcoal which get to those hard-to-reach places whilst gently cleaning the gums.

The stylish design of the brush has etching on the handle, acting as a thumb grip, and is coated in natural beeswax to prevent the bamboo from getting water damaged in the bathroom.

We love that Colgate are taking a step in the right direction, the brush is smaller in length than some making it easy to pack, and for those sleep deprived mummies and daddies you won’t need reminding if you’ve brushed or not as the brush looks slightly darker when wet so easy to check ☺️

The new Colgate® Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush is now available from ASDA and Waitrose. RRP £4.00

The solution to sleeping soundly under the stars…

beauty

What do you get new parents for Christmas? We highly recommend the @johnsonsbabyuk #sleeptightset packed full of their amazing #bedtimebath range which is clically proven for help baby get to sleep and to stay asleep for longer; plus a waterproof book and sleep socks for baby!

We love it, it ends a night smoothly and adding the sleep powder as well as a bath means our little man is super relaxed and ready for bed at a reasonable time! The book adds in a way that we can tie in a story too for quick web bedtime too!

Available to buy at asda for just £12

Wild Cosmetics launches with new natural deodorant range

beauty

Wild Cosmetics is a range of natural deodorants that caters to the growing demand for high performing, natural alternatives to antiperspirants. The deodorants perform and are applied just like any other deodorant, but contain no aluminium, parabens or sulphates. They are vegan-friendly and are never tested on animals.

Wild has launched with a range of eight deodorants across Stick and Roll on formats available as a one-off purchase or on subscription.

You can choose from one of four natural fragrance options including Mint and Eucalyptus, Rose and Geranium, Lemon and Thyme and an unfragranced version.

Wild use active naturals to combat the smell of sweat whilst still allowing your body to sweat, which they see as a natural and important process used by your body to remove toxins and regulate temperature.

The Roll-On range comes in glass with refill bottles that will reduce plastic use by more than 80% vs normal deodorants. They are also working with a specialist packaging design agency to develop similar eco-friendly packaging for their stick range which currently uses plastic that is 100% recyclable and they hope to be plastic free by Christmas.

Find out more, and pre-order online at wilddeo.com or head to Kickstarter to contribute to helping Wild reach their plastic free target by Christmas

Other tips: Avoiding sun damage to hair requires many of the same practises as protecting our skin from the sun.

If you have to go out, it’s best to wear a sunhat to keep those strands as protected as possible.
