A moment to sort it out!

It's time to sit down and take stock of the products we have. This cream bought a year ago in supermarkets and whose content I haven't finished, am I going to buy it back or throw it away? This shampoo with the wrong composition and whose list of ingredients was far too long to have read it in full, are you going to redirect yourself to this one again? All those products in your shower that are in plastic packaging that you own, can they be recycled?

So many questions that need to be asked. Do you want to change your habits and your way of consumption ? This is the perfect opportunity to start all over again , take care of your skin and the environment again.

First step: Sort it out!

Open your cupboards. What do you see ? Do you know how long your products have been open?

To know the validity of a product , you just have to look at its packaging and examine a pictogram in particular, called "period symbol near open". This indicates the number of months your product is valid: 6 months or 12 months. Damn, can't you remember when you first opened it? In the future, remember to note the date of opening on your bottle. This is what we advise you to do each time when creating your products. A good way to avoid putting expired products on your face or body.

There are other ways to find out if your product has passed. First, in terms of its smell . If the scent has changed, look no further, something is wrong. You can also quickly realize it visually and by touch : the texture and/or the color could be modified.

If your products are still usable but you no longer want them because they don't match your skin type or haven't had the desired effect, don't throw them away! A loved one may be happy to collect them. There are also associations who recover care and make-up to help poor women. Of course, we do not advise you to exchange and give away products that could create problems or infections in others, as is the case with eye products, for example.

This problem of products not suited to your skin type would not have happened if you had made your product yourself... Sorting it out also means finishing your started products and taking the good resolution that you will not buy it again for environmental, health and taste reasons.

Step 2: Become aware, then make good resolutions...

Now that you've done some sorting, what lessons will you learn from it? Less plastic ? Fewer products? More care adapted to your skin? 

On this subject, let's talk plastic... The report "Plastic, the big intox" highlights the alarming figures surrounding the plastic. What torment the spirits a little... These figures, here they are:

  • 10 tons of plastic are produced per second in the world

  • 9 billion tons of plastics have been produced since 1950

  • Only 9% of plastics are recycled

  • Thousands of years are needed before it completely disappears

And so many products, for what reasons? A day cream, a night cream, a serum, an eye contour, several make-up removers, several lotions... Do you need these many products which accumulate and which for the most part expire before you even have had time to use them in their entirety?

And their price? Very high for some? Of course, you are free to pay the price you want, but did you know that for only a few euros you sometimes have very good quality products? 

The list of ingredients is huge and you're not even sure what to put on your skin? You would like to be able to read this list and decipher it, but these are scientific terms and the store's saleswoman has not been of much help to you... If you want to have products with a list reduced in ingredients, 100% adapted to your needs, then we have the solution.
