Plaine products review
A year before starting this blog, I decided to stop using personal care products that have SLS ( Sodium Laureth Sulfate) , silicone or paraben … I searched the internet daily and tried making my own shampoo .
I’ve nearly tried everything from Indian Ayurvedic powders to Tunisian Clay . Then, I decided to buy shea moisture’s hibiscus and coconut shampoo which I fell in love with. But, it was sold in plastic bottle. At that time, I was looking for a chemical free shampoo that would make my hair look better since it has always been dry and shea moisture’s did a great job ! The fact that it came in a plastic bottle disappointed me : what’s the point of buying Eco-friendly personal care products when I’d be left with tons of non-recyclable plastic containers ?
” If you wouldn’t eat it, don’t put it on your
I totally agree with this statement and I would add : if it comes in a plastic packaging it’s not solving the problem. It’s easy to find non-toxic beauty products. But, it’s hard to reduce plastic waste. Another alternative is glass containers or aluminum bottles which are easily recyclable and strong enough to survive several trips.
By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s ocean. Therefore, Plaine products decided to use aluminum returnable , refillable and reusable containers for their shampoo, conditioner and body wash ! In fact, after finishing your first bottle, you can order a another one and return the empty bottle to Plaine products, they would sterilize it and reuse it.

The first time I opened one of the bottles, I could tell from the smell it has no artificial ingredients .
