When picking products for our morning routine, it’s easy to pick ones that smell the best, or have the nicest packaging, or come from a brand that we are familiar with and that we feel we can trust. However, one of the most important things is that we should be picking products that are eco friendly and have a positive impact on the world around us. Here are 10 eco friendly products that are great for the environment, whilst also smelling absolutely amazing and being a positive addition to your daily routine!

The products are formulated without parabens, mineral oils, plastic microbeads, SLS/SLES, cocamide DEA,colourants , MIT or animal derivatives.
