Here are some travel essentials for women that are safe for you and the environment

A responsible traveler will always think of what she might leave behind after visiting a place. Sometimes, we set aside the fact that we might be leaving a place worse than it has been before you go, or you might have been one of the contributors of the environments’ continuous climate change.

For one, when we travel, our carbon footprint adds up, which is not a good thing. Aside from the usual transport here and there—flying in and out of the country, using cars that contribute to emissions—we also have loads of waste we dump from wherever we go to.

For a female, this is a little common. I am guilty of this. We have those shampoo sachets, plastic packets, plastic bags, and everything plastic that takes a hundred years to disappear. Little did we know, these tiny plastics we usually use, when compiled altogether, is one of the greatest enemies of our changing world.

As a woman who loves traveling solo, or even with my partner, I always see to it that I have my essentials with me. I mean, who wants to groom herself without those essentials?

I am amazed by how Human Nature, a local social enterprise company, has been anchored as a pro-environment and pro-poor business. It takes pride in having products which are 100 percent no harmful chemicals and cruelty-free.

Human Nature’s Travel Essentials for Women

  • Human Nature Natural Shampoo with CREAMFoam

You know that feeling when you constantly fly in and out, go to beaches and be exposed to the sun and then seeing your hair brittle and frizzy? This one is created for strengthening on brittle, falling hair. It also has a soothing aloe which really helps in repairing dead skin cells on the scalp.  The shampoo is sulfate-free, silicone-free and paraben-free. Of course, pair this one with the Natural Conditioner.

  • Chamomile Cool Fem Wash

We all know this: Feminine care is a priority. This hypoallergenic wash lets you stay cool and clean while keeping your intimate area free from odor and irritation. It has a natural cooling sensation and is scented with calming chamomile. It also protects the intimate area from dryness thanks to its aloe extract so you need not worry about it any time of the day, wherever you are.

  • Bug Shield DEET-Free Lotion

This one’s a favorite. Because I am into camping in remote places, hiking, or just being in a foreign place, I somehow feel safe from mosquito-borne diseases when I put on this one.

The lotion is also formulated with soybean oil and eucalyptus oil for added protection. I am sure, mothers also like this product because they can use this for their kids’ protection 24/7.

  • SafeProtect SPF30 Sunscreen

The sun should be our body’s best friend. But too much exposure on it may impose a negative effect on the skin. As we oftentimes go to the beach and get that sunkissed glow, or you’re just out for a city tour, never neglect your skin by putting on an effective sunscreen.

UV rays can still penetrate your skin even when indoors, especially through glass windows. But it can shield you through its SPF 30. This sunscreen product has the highest PA++++ rating, which is superior in UVA rays protection. It actually can shield you up to 97 of UVB rays.

And if you are thinking that sunscreens and sunblocks affecting the coral-reefs once washed off when dipping into the waters because of chemicals like oxybenzone, octinoxate, benzophenone and other harmful ingredients, Human Nature’s sunscreen is different. Because it stays true to its word of having 100 percent natural formulation, you know you will leave the corals in peace even when using it.

I have tried all these and so far, it does good on my body. It also feels great to know that as you purchase these items, you not only do your little help in saving the environment but also help the people behind the making of these products. As a woman who is always on the go, it is nice to know that you carry with you products that do not leave a negative impact. These and all of Human Nature’s products are packaged in small bottles you can always carry, which veers you away from using those sachets.

I also love how you can purchase them from dealers and if you want to be a member with exclusive perks like discounts and promos, it is possible too! For more information, you may check out www.humanheartnature.com
