When it comes to haircare, I'm always on the lookout for sustainable, plastic free alternatives. Nereus London recently sent me some luxury sustainable haircare products to try out.
Nereus London are a UK based company providing luxury haircare products that don't destroy the earth or compromise on quality or aesthetics. James and Diana, the creators of the brand, wanted to produce an all natural product that didn't damage the environment. They were well aware of the damaging nature of plastic, with much of it ending up in landfill or the ocean despite it being marketed as recyclable. That's Nereus London have a completely plastic-free supply chain.
I was sent the Detoxing and Hydrating Natural Haircare Set which consists of the Australian Buddhawood shampoo and conditioner. Both of the products come in a metal bottle with a metal lid. I was also really impressed that the set came with a warning to let you know that the label is biodegradable so might wear away with time.
Their award winning shampoo lathers really well, so much that you wouldn't believe that it's free from silicones, sulfates (including SLS) and other harsh chemicals. The conditioner is a thick consistency and leaves my hair feeling hydrated, nourishes and generally looking much healthier. The set are designed to soothe your scalp and reduce any itchiness whilst also providing fuller, thicker hair. Both products smell amazing as they contain pomegranate, sea kelp, goji berry and jojoba seed oil.
I've really enjoyed using the set as it means I'm able to obtain the advantage of luxury haircare but knowing that it's packed with natural, vegan ingredients and completely plastic free. For each set purchased 2kg of ocean bound plastic is collected through Plastic Bank.
