We may be stuck in quarantine for the holiday season this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t give meaningful gifts to our friends and family. People are prioritizing self care, valuing the peace of mind and sense of calm it brings. But what does self care really mean?
Better for your body
To us here at Cleo+Coco, self care means clean personal care products. Because what you put onto your body matters as much as what you put into your body. Using personal care products without ingredients like parabens, synthetic fragrance, talc, aluminum is self care on so many levels. It will help you to feel healthier and, for many, eliminate allergic reactions, minimize migraines, irritation, asthma and and a whole slew of other side effects (like Alzheimers or the big C) that may or may not be directly linked to the ingredients that we will never use.
When you start to use products 'without', you start to also use products made from higher quality, richer, more valuable ingredients and the end result are products that feel and act luxurious and make you feel better on many levels. Pure ingredients like raw coconut oil, shea butter, charcoal, clay and therapeutic essential oils. The end result is a mood that is immediately lifted when you use the products - imagine a deodorant or body powder that has mood lifting effects! On a conscious level you mood lifts because the experience of using the products is such a beautiful sensory experience and subconsciously, because you feel so proud to be using better for your body products.
The icing on this luxurious clean cake is that all of our products are waterless, which means the only thing you’re only getting in our product is...well, product. Most companies fill their products with water, glycerine or fillers, but at Cleo+Coco, all we use is rich pure ingredients so you need less to get more.
Better for the planet
Giving the gift of effective, clean beauty and personal care this year can be incredibly fulfilling. But can it be entirely guilt-free? How do you give a gift without adding to the waste that is filling up our planet?
At Cleo+Coco, we don’t think this should be a tough question. That’s why we offer zero-waste products that leave you feeling great inside and out. Like our Deodorant Bar which comes packed in a reusable bag with a naturally sustainable wax mold, allowing you to apply it to your underarms without plastic and mess-free. Our Charcoal Cleanse Face and Body Bar has minimal paper packaging that looks so nice you won’t even want to wrap it.
So when looking for gifts for your loved ones this year, look for ones that are "made without", better for your body and better for the planet. The benefits and joy are endless.
Wishing you a healthy and happy holiday season!
