Booda Organics - Eco-Friendly Body Care Products
Pros: smells like chocolate (only from the tin), smooth on the skin, a little bit of it goes a long way, different sized tins for traveling
Cons: can be oily if you apply too much, melts in warm weather (just keep in fridge)
Review: Such amazing moisturizing cream. We use it mostly for the face (use Ethique body lotion concentrates), but when our hands get torn up in the winter, this stuff is lifesaving. Great for body too, but it can be quite shiny; it's easier to control on the face. Great for sensitive skin too, as we have not had any irritation or break-outs.
It’s time to channel our inner booda on this Sustainability Sunday, with Booda Butter. Skin care should be a daily routine for everyone, period. Especially in this dry af planet we live in, it’s so important to have an all natural moisturizer that helps keep your skin feeling replenished and hydrated all day long. But we have to remember, what has to be gentle on the skin, also has to be on the planet.
Nowadays, skin moisturizers contain so many unnatural chemicals, and most are stored in harmful plastic containers. Booda Butter only uses organic and pure ingredients found in nature. And even further, the plastic-free packaging makes shipping cost efficient and eco-friendly. It’s extremely important we take care of our skin, but it’s just as important we aren’t doing it at the expense of our planet. There are hundreds of products that are vegan and planet friendly, you just need to do a little research to find the right fit. The $500 billion per year global personal care industry relies heavily on plastic; so if we don’t change our behaviors, plastic will continue to be dumped into our oceans.
The amount of plastic packaging in U.S. products (not just on personal care items) has increased by over 120 times since 1960—with almost 70 percent of that waste piling up in landfills. SO this issue is not a small one, but if enough of us challenge it, we can change a whole industry that contributes to it.
Our plastic problem is worsening by the day, with micro plastics ending up in all aspects of our lives. But small changes like this can create large supply chain shifts that ultimately reduces the amount of plastics we use. There are sustainable solutions all around us, we just need to start paying attention to them. And I think we’ll be able to figure it out. Deep breaths, and use Booda Butter.
