How to Make Your Skin Care Routine More Sustainable This Spring
Beautiful woman, skin care products at home

At Natural Body Spa & Shop, we pride ourselves on meeting our clients “on the other side of the door.” We believe that, besides you, a healthy environment is the best partner we have in supporting the wellness goals of our clients. This is why we love to celebrate our partners who share these same values during April as we lead up to our Earth Day celebration. We’re proud to offer sustainable skin care options at our Alpharetta, Marietta, Snellville and Atlanta, GA areas, plus Chattanooga, TN locations.

You don’t have to completely clean out your medicine cabinet to make your skin care routine sustainable—even just a few small changes can make a big difference. Read on to learn more about our environmentally conscious partners and get a few helpful tips for eco-friendly shopping.

Choose Brands That Care

Eminence’s Forests for the Future logo

Partners like Éminence Organic Skin Care use sustainable farming and green practices to create natural, organic, and Biodynamic® products that we get to share with our clients during treatments and at-home care.

With each Éminence Organic Skin Care sale, Natural Body Spa & Shop contributes to Eminence’s Forests for the Future initiative. Éminence Organics plants a tree for every retail product sold, allowing us to support communities in developing countries.

Aveda is another partner that continually strives to minimize their brand’s impact on the environment. They’re true trailblazers in the way of sustainability: They are the first beauty company to manufacture products with 100% wind power at their primary facility.

Look for Vegan Skin Care Options

Caring for our earth also means caring for all the animals that inhabit it. That’s not to mention that animal agriculture is a leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions and deforestation. Going vegan isn’t for everyone, but cutting back on animal products via your skin care routine is a beautiful way to start.

It’s easy to shop sustainably from head to toe with Aveda’s wide range of products, which are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. (What exactly do these terms mean?

Recycle Packaging When Possible

Packaging certainly has the potential to affect the environment, but brands today are thinking more conscientiously about how they approach it. Some brands now offer zero packaging products and fully recyclable or even compostable packaging.

Aveda recently launched a new Auto Replenishment Program, which gives you the option to send your returnable Aveda shipping boxes straight back to them. They’ll put them to re-use up to 20 times.

If you’re not sure how or where to recycle products, find a center near you at earth911.com.

Reuse Containers Creatively

If you find yourself with containers you can’t recycle, you can still reuse the packaging in some unexpected ways. Here are just a few fun ideas:

  • Use jars to store bobby pins and hair elastics
  • Repurpose small bottles as travel product containers
  • Sprout plants in bottles and transfer them to your garden
  • Repackage broken beauty products or your own DIY creations

Fun fact: We wholeheartedly embrace this approach at Natural Body Spa & Shop! Our locations were built with earth-friendly materials, including reclaimed wood and floors made from recycled school bus tires.
