Reduce Your Beauty Carbon Footprint

Reduce Your Beauty Carbon Footprint

Spring is upon us! And as we are taking out the old and bringing in the new we’re looking at small and big habits that we’ve never thought twice about, until now! 


Here at WOSH we love beauty and the skincare space, but we are also incredibly passionate about sustainability and finding the best ways to protect our planet. Here are some small changes that you can implement into your beauty routine to reduce your carbon footprint without having to give up your love for beauty products!


  • Purchase From Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Brands
  • Putting your money into companies that care about the planet is where it all starts. From packaging, to knowing about the product inside - these are all important aspects of transparency that you need to look out for. WOSH is not only made from ingredients that quite literally come from the earth - Kisameet Clay - but our packaging is made of 100% recyclable material, including the printing ink we use!


  • Reduce Your Water Usage
  • It’s not just good for the planet, it’s good for your wallet! Make sure you’re turning off the faucet when brushing your teeth or washing your face! Also, try to avoid taking baths regularly - as deliciously relaxing as they are, “a ten minute shower only uses 25 gallons of water while a full bath can use up to 70 gallons of water.” (Source).


  • Consolidate your Skincare Routine
  • Do you really need 5 toners and a wide selection of daily cleansers that you rotate throughout the week? Figure out what your top four to five products are; if there is a product that has the exact same use or purpose as another, pick your favorite and avoid turning your vanity into a mini-Sephora. Our multi-purpose body bar can be used from head to toe! Use it as a daily face and body cleanser, for blemish treatment or even as a mask!


  • Chop Single -Use Product
  • Although you might have to spend a little bit more upfront, these are all products that in the long run are budget friendly and more importantly, earth friendly.
