Last Updated on August 17, 2021

The Zero Waste movement is gaining momentum all over the world and for the right reasons. We need to stop plastic pollution by reducing the use of single-use plastics on a day-to-day basis. And opting for zero waste beauty brands is just one tiny step that can help.

Although a small part, but plastic waste generated from the beauty industry needs to be addressed. We discard countless tubes and lotion bottles in the trash every year, most of which go unrecycled. All this waste generated could be reduced by using more sustainable, biodegradable packaging options.

DIY products are the most efficient way to minimize waste from your routine, but it may not be a possible option for everyone due to lack of time and knowledge.

In such a case, you have to rely on sustainable brands in the market that cater to your needs.

Below are 7 such brands that will help you minimize plastic waste from your personal care routine.

Zero Waste Beauty Brands in India

1. Bare Necessities

This is the ultimate zero waste home care and personal care brand in India. All the Bare Necessities products come packaged in either glass or paper without any frills.

The product range includes personal care, dental care, home care and other zero waste lifestyle products. Everything from skincare, bath products to resusable makeup removal wipes.
