Make Beauty Resolutions for the New Year with Dr. Bronner’s
3 Simple Ways to Help Save the Planet with Your Beauty Cabinet in 2019
December 18, 2018
Dr. Bronner’s is encouraging everyone to kick-start 2019 with three positive beauty New Year resolutions to help make 2019 the most eco-conscious yet. With these simple resolutions, small changes to bathroom cabinets across the UK can have a big impact on the world around us.
Dr. Bronner’s, the family-owned maker of the top-selling brand of natural soaps and body care products in North America, has always striven to make socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest quality, and by dedicating profits to help make a better world. Now more than ever, it is vital for people to try and turn back the clock on global warming to help reduce the impact of humankind on the world around us. As Dr. Bronner’s founder Emanuel Bronner stated, “We’re all one or none!”
For those looking to make their own impact, Dr. Bronner’s has put together three simple beauty resolutions that people can implement in their everyday life:
1. Choose biodegradable beauty products
Always read the label. Look for self-care products which are 100% biodegradable. For example, choose ones that don’t include any micro-plastics, so that there are no harmful ingredients going into your skin or back into the environment via the plughole.
When sourcing ingredients, Dr. Bronner’s seeks to use sustainable, organic, and fair trade ingredients, and all the products are 100% biodegradable; made without any synthetic dyes, fragrances, or preservatives, so they do no harm to our bodies and leave no trace behind on planet Earth.
2. Choose recycled plastic packaged products and reuse the packaging
As we reduce the amount of plastic in our oceans by being conscious about the amount of plastic purchased in the first place, look for products that are packaged in post-consumer, recycled plastic. This allows us to reuse plastics that have already been produced.
Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Liquid Soaps are packaged in 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) polyethylene (PET) plastic bottles. Dr. Bronner’s is proud to have been using PCR PET bottles for more than ten years, long before this was common in the personal care industry.
A company statement says: “By turning used plastic bottles into new plastic bottles and products, we help conserve virgin resources, reduce landfill, and capitalise on the energy already invested in making existing plastic products. Recycling one ton of PET containers saves 7.4 cubic yards of landfill space!”
For those looking to cut down on plastic entirely, the Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Block Soaps are totally plastic free and with 100% biodegradable packaging.
3. Do more with less
Why choose 3 products when you can get one that does so much more? Look into multi-use products, which cut down on the amount of products that are needed, as well as buying products that come in higher concentrates – so people can do more with less.
A great example of ‘Doing more with less’ is a bottle of Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap – which is so much more than a bottle of soap. One bottle can be used more than 18 different ways, the nourishing, concentrated formula can be used as a shampoo, body wash, household cleaner, washing up liquid, pet cleanser, and even as a fruit and vegetable wash. The Pure Liquid Castile Soap is also designed to be diluted, so a very small amount can go a very long way. Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Soap is even available in a super-sized 946ml size, meaning users can buy in bulk and reduce their amount of waste even further.

Notes to editors:
Dr. Bronner’s is a family business committed to honouring the vision of founder Emanuel Bronner by making socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest quality, and by dedicating profits to help make a better world. The company’s commitment to progressive business practices is part of the company’s mission to put into practice the principles that inform the philosophy printed on the company’s iconic soap labels written by founder Emanuel Bronner. Bronner was a third generation soap maker who spent his life renouncing hate and war on a personal mission to unite mankind. His strong views and lectures landed him in a mental asylum in Chicago, but eight months later in 1948, Bronner escaped and continued with his message in California. During this time, he also began making peppermint liquid soap under the “Dr. Bronner’s” brand. He gave the soap away during his talks but soon realised people were taking it without listening to him speak. As a result, he started writing his philosophy on the bottle in tiny script, which is still used on Dr. Bronner’s packaging today. The company has grown to become the top-selling natural soap maker in North America and a major brand worldwide. Based on 2017 sales, a bottle of Dr. Bronner’s soap was sold, on average, every 2.2 seconds.
Dr. Bronner’s is distributed by Healthy Food Brands, part of the Healthy Sales Group which has been helping companies develop successful natural food and personal care brands for around 25 years. Working with many of the key brands in the sector, Healthy Sales Group has seen its activities develop significantly, not only in health food stores, but also the major high street chemists, department stores, and supermarkets.
