This kit consists of holistic skincare from Bambu Earth. The products are sustainable, ethical, fair-trade and cruelty free. It includes my three favorite skincare products for a beautiful, healthy youthful complexion — along with my two must haves for hair and body.
Holistic Skincare Kit: All-Natural, Sustainable, Ethical, Fair Trade & Cruelty-Free
Handmade Makeup / Dirt Cleansing Oil (All Natural Plant Oils) – Organic, Cruelty-Free & Free of Harsh Chemicals
By: Bambu Earth
I LOVE the cleansing oil/makeup-remover because the sustainable ingredients of Organic sunflower oil, organic safflower oil, tamanu oil, frankincense essential oil and geranium essential oil are hydrating, promote healthy cell regeneration, anti-inflammatory and age defying. My skin is balanced to its normal state, hydrated and glowing!
Handmade Toner (Balances Skin pH Levels) – Organic, Cruelty-Free & Free of Harsh Chemicals

Handmade Dry Shampoo (Botanically Based) – Organic, Cruelty-Free & Free of Harsh Chemicals (Talc-Free)
By: Bambu Earth
I LOVE the dry shampoo because it is non toxic and chemical free! The earth ingredients of arrow root and kaolin clay absorb excess oils while chamomile, lavender, horsetail powder and comfery root nourish scalp, add volume with a fresh scent and promote healthy hair growth.

Handmade, Repairing Facial Serum (Antioxidant-Rich) – Organic, Cruelty-Free & Free of Harsh Chemicals

I LOVE the repairing facial serum because of the sustainable, organic, cold pressed oils of pumpkin, rosehip and medowfoam. These oils are packed full of omega fatty acids + rich in vitamins that tone, firm, even out skin tone, repairl sun damage, lock in moisture and are age defying!
View Our Research Standards.
Each of our six badges has its own unique set of metrics. These are some of the qualities (i.e., metrics) we try to look into when assessing a product and brand with respect to each of our badges:
Socially Responsible (purple triangle):
+ Does the company abide by Fair Trade Practices, or is it Fair Trade Certified;
+ Is there a commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR);
+ Is the company philanthropic – does it donate goods or services to environmental or humanitarian efforts;
+ Does the brand promote corporate transparency;
+ Are there any community engagement initiatives set in place;
+ Does the company communicate healthy and equitable working conditions along the supply chain;
+ Does the brand abide by fair and honorable employment values;
+ Is there a disclosure of sourcing methods, and are such materials or ingredients sourced responsibly;
+ Does the brand have a cause-driven mission towards human & environmental health & well-being.
*We do not conduct in-person audits. Oftentimes we will consult the language and standards set by third-party certifications and seals such as Fair Trade Certified, B Corp Certified, Rainforest Alliance Certified, Green America Certified, etc. We will, however, do independent research with respect to certain badges and utilize peer-reviewed articles. Also, please note that according to the Journal of Economics and the EPA, “social responsibility” does include practices and commitments that support environmental health and well-being; thus, the qualities of this badge may overlap with our other badges.
Eco-Conscious (red triangle):
+ Does the company practice sustainable modes of production;
+ Is the product composed of materials and/or ingredients that are biodegradable;
+ Are the materials and/or ingredients compostable;
+ Does the company have carbon reduction or mitigation strategies set in place;
+ Do the involved materials and/or ingredients have a relatively low environmental impact;
+ Does the company utilize reduce or reuse principles in their facilities;
+ Does the company use renewable or efficient energy technologies in the production of their good(s);
+ Are there practices in place that work to maintain ecosystem biodiversity;
+ Is environmental stewardship a part of their business model.
*We aim to be transparent and objective when it comes to labeling a product as “Eco-Conscious”, and reject “greenwashing”. According to marketing and advertising standards set by The Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Green Guides, it is most accurate to communicate not that a product is necessarily “good” for the environment, but that it is a “better environmental alternative”. This is the message we aim to communicate in labeling a product as “Eco-Conscious”.
Quality Materials/Ingredients (M/I) (green triangle):
+ Does the product contain organic or certified organic m/i;
+ Is there a significant degree of m/i ‘naturalness’;
+ Is the product non-GMO or Verified Non-GMO;
+ Are the m/i biodegradable;
+ Are the m/i compostable;
+ Do the m/i raise little to no concern in terms of m/i toxicity;
+ Is the product treated with harsh chemicals;
+ Is there a healthy ratio of synthetic or artificial m/i to natural m/i;
*For select “Pantry” products, we may look into health and nutritional value.
*For select products, we may consult reviews to assess m/i effectiveness.
*Generally, these are the ingredients that we try to steer clear of: Acesulfame-K (acesulfame potassium), Acetylated ester of mono- and diglycerides, Ammonium chloride, Antibiotics, Artificial colors (Synthetic and FD&C Certified), Artificial flavors, Aspartame, Astaxanthin, Azodicarbonamide, Bentonite, Benzoates, BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole), BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene), Bisulfites, Bromated flour, Brominated vegetable oil (BVO), Calcium bromate, Calcium disodium, EDTA, Calcium peroxide, Calcium propionate, Calcium stearoyl-2-lactylate, Calcium sorbate, Caprocaprylobehenin Carmine, DATEM (diacetyl tartaric and fatty acid esters of mono and diglycerides), Diglycerides (acceptable in supplements), Dimethylpolysiloxane, Dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate (DSS), Disodium calcium EDTA, Disodium dihydrogen, Disodium guanylate (GMP), Disodium succinate, Dimethylamylamine (DMAA)… Read more at Free From 101.
