If you are on a mission to live more sustainably, a great way to cut down on bathroom waste is by switching to a refillable body wash.
PROVERB LAUNCHES WORLD’S FIRST 100%HOME COMPOSTABLE PACKAGING TO HOLD LIQUID, OFFERING A SOLUTION TO THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY’S PLASTIC WASTE CRISIS.
PROVERB has a simple mission; to create highly-effective, natural and organic products that are better for human health, performance and the planet. With a background in elite sports, nutrition and health, founders Kirstie and Luke Sherriff created the brand to meet the needs of professional athletes everywhere that were seeking truly clean wellbeing products. With 11 years playing in the topflight of English Rugby, Luke’s career was literally based on sweat and mud. His background, coupled with Kirstie’s twenty years as a spa and skincare expert created the perfect testing ground for PROVERB, putting products through rigorous trials alongside extensive lab-based research.
“With the launch of the Beauty Industry’s first compostable packaging solution, we want our Refillable Body Wash to set a totally new standard. This has been a labor of love, with years in the making to design a truly sustainable option that people can integrate seamlessly into their daily routines. The facts are clear and undeniable. With bathroom waste alone contributing to 30 – 40% of total landfill waste we knew that to change people’s habits, the product had to be great, but easy and straightforward to use, no compromises for the consumer. Not only have we created a beautiful smelling, all-natural, vegan Body Wash that you’ll love to use, but a product that we hope will shift people’s awareness of their waste, and the changes they can make to help solve the crisis of landfill waste, for good.
With PROVERB, you get out what you put in.”
Kirstie Sherriff – Co-founder, PROVERB
PROVERB’s Body Wash Refillable Pouch aims to revolutionise the way we think about our bathroom products and waste, offering a packaging solution that no brand has yet accomplished – a product package that leaves no trace of toxicity on the environment once it’s finished, but rather, improves it.
The 100% plastic free compostable pouch has been designed using wood pulp and home compostable biopolymers, meaning it can be disposed of in your home compost or your local council food waste bin. When it composts it, nor the ink on the pack, will not break down into microplastics or add any ecotoxicity to the soil, instead it will help create biomass to make your soil healthier.
PROVERB have also ensured that the refill pouch has TUV OK Home Compost accreditation, as well being fully tested and accredited to EN13432 the industrialised compost standards too.
PROVERB REFILLABLE BODY WASH STARTER SET
The Body Wash formulation has been expertly formulated using all-natural, vegan ingredients designed to invigorate and nourish the skin. Launching with Wild Mint & Eucalyptus, Coconut & Tonka, Lemongrass & Myrtle and Bergamot & Basil, PROVERB have created a range to suit all skin types and scent preferences without the use of any artificial fragrance.
All body washes also contain gluconate PHA, the sensitive skin-friendly ingredient cited to help reinforce the skin barrier, removing dead skin cells and hydrating the ones left behind. All ingredients are anti-inflammatory with additional moisturising benefits to cleanse the skin naturally and leave you feeling fresh.
Free from sulphates, silicones, parabens, petrochemicals, mineral oils, parabens, GM ingredients, artificial fragrance and cheap bulkers and fillers
You get a free reusable pump bottle with the starter set. I decided to go with the grey bottle, it is made to last long and looks good as well. What’s great is you can reuse it over and over again and you only ever need to buy refills.
The bottle is also available in white.
The body wash refills are available in 4 fragrance options.
It was so hard to choose but I decided to go for the Bergamot & Basil fragrance. The scent is gorgeous…. fresh, sweet and citrusy bergamot, wrapped with warm, sweet and herbaceous basil. The fragrance will uplift and invigorate your senses, morning and night.
aqua (water), coco-glucoside, cocamidopropyl betaine, glycerin, xanthan gum, gluconolactone, sodium chloride, limonene, citrus sinensis (orange) peel extract, sodium benzoate, citrus aurantium bergamia (bergamot) fruit oil, methyl anthranilate, triethyl citrate, citrus aurantium dulcis (sweet orange) peel oil, benzyl acetate, citrus limon (lemon) peel oil, linalool, citral, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) plant oil, lavandula hybrida (lavandin) plant oil, litsea cubeba (mountain pepper) fruit oil, pogostemomncablin (patchouli) oil, citrus aurantium amara (bitter orange) leaf oil, eugenia caryophyllus (clove) bud extract, ocimum basilicum (basil) leaf oil, thymus vulgaris (thyme) flower/leaf oil
The process was really quick and easy. Simply cut along the dotted line on the refill pouch and pour into the bottle. Once done simply cut the pouch into smaller pieces and place in your home compost or local council food waste to help create more much needed biomass in 26 weeks.
The body wash is concentrated so a little goes a long way. It lathers well and does a great job at gently cleansing the skin without leaving it stripped. My skin is left feeling fresh, clean, soft and beautifully scented.
