Organic Skincare For Men: Orange You Glad It’s February? | recomMENdations #13

Welcome to the first recomMENdations article of 2019! No Valentine’s content ahead… just three simple Earth- and skin-friendly green swaps for your everyday well-being.

Organic Skincare For Men:
Simple Green Swaps

Really want that little extra rub in the shower (we’re talking peelings!) but want to avoid microplastics?
An exfoliating body bar — fancy speak for soap and soap-like solids — that’s plastic-free formula to packaging, long-lasting, has a 100% natural invigorating smell and is hydrating and soothing, does it sound good?
John Masters Organics – Orange & Ginseng Exfoliating Body Bar, 128 g, €9.75

You’re probably supplementing anyway?
Why not choose 100% organic and natural, vegan, free from synthetics, fillers, additives, allergens; lactose-free, gluten-free and Non-GMO?
“One-a-day” describes the concept behind the Ogaenics supplements of reducing the intake to one capsule per day. If you’re looking to supplement Vitamins B, C, E, Manganese, Selenium, Magnesium, Zinc, Calcium — have a look at this 100% natural and 100% vegan brand.
Ogaenics Mr. One-a-Day Multivitamin Complex Men, 60 capsules, €39

Earth-friendly toothbrushes don’t need to be made of wood.
I know from several reader messages that you have tried to use the ethical bamboo brushes but didn’t like them, and the fact that you need to separate the bristles anyway (yes, from the wooden brushes too) has turned some of you back to conventional brushes. However, if you’ve been around here for a while, you’ll remember BioBrush Berlin — the ethical, eco-friendly and multiple design and sustainability award winning toothbrushes.
BioBrush, avail. in 6 colours, €3 per piece.
