Sustainable Home Spa Goodies

At Imperia, we are simultaneously big fans of home spa days and sustainability, so we went on the hunt to find some delicious products to leave us feeling good and feeling good. 

If you read Give Yourself a Non-Toxic Self-Care Day, you know it’s easy to mistake true self-care for what social media or influencers have made it out to be. Self-care comes in many forms, and there is no universal right answer, so you might love face masks and rolfing, and your BFF might love tightrope walking and swimming with sharks. Whatever works for you to detach from this crazy world we live in is a win in our book.

At this moment in time, we’re a little more candles and aromatherapy than adrenaline rush, so if you’re in the same boat, we went on the hunt for some intriguing products and purveyors. This list includes the US, Canada, UK, and Europe, so we’ll do other rounds featuring other products and continents as we make our way around the globe (if you are a woman founder with a sustainable beauty product outside the US, please contact us and tell us more!).

Credo Beauty

For an overall store option (ordering online and some brick and mortar), we have fallen in love with Credo Beauty, especially because we can take in our recyclable skin care containers for store points to be used toward future products.

We also found some wonderful products in Canada, the UK and Europe, all made by women founders, some of which ship globally:

Slow Made Candles (Canada & UK)

Slow Made revolves around environmental sustainability and ethical choices. As a nature-inspired brand, they are incredibly conscious of their environmental impact using plant-based ingredients and reusable, recyclable and biodegradable materials for packaging, providing carbon neutral shipping. They have also partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree with every candle purchased.

Ede Aromatherapy for the 21st century (UK & EU)

Ede offers roll on aromatherapy using playful botanical blends aligned with modern day emotions in what they call a “roll on therapist”. Eve, the founder of ede, “wants ede to be a reminder that making small moments of ‘you time’ is the most important thing you can do for yourself”. All their products are organically farmed, vegan, and £5 from every sale is donated to a British mental health charity.

Hobo + co. Mineral Bath Salts (UK & EU)

Hobo + co. offers mineral bath salts in scents Rest and Bloom to help you be your best self. Their bath salts, as well as their candles, are eco-friendly, 100% vegan, and packaged in reusable and recyclable containers.

Kleen Soap On A Rope (UK)

Kleensoaps creates cold-processed vegan soap on a rope in a variety of scents. Their packaging is made from recycled materials and is made to be recycled again. Conceived to help you reduce the use of plastic in your home, and ensuring that no soap goes unused through a centered cotton rope, Kleensoaps has redefined the classic idea of soap-on-a-rope to give you a luxurious, waste-free, and natural product.

Goldrick Botanical Facial Steam (UK-based, ships worldwide)

When placed in boiling water, the combination of steam with Goldrick botanicals will cleanse the skin, remove impurities, hydrate and promote circulation, aid in skin renewal, and calm the nervous system. Goldrick prioritizes sustainable and ethical processes and their botanical steam is mindfully packaged using a compostable kraft pouch bag.
