Bodycare

bodycareAt The Eighth Day, we believe that healthy skin and hair can be achieved naturally without compromising the environment or your ethics. We choose premium quality products which utilise natural botanical extracts and essential oils, formulated to provide the best possible care for hair and skin.

All our bodycare products are naturally derived, free from animal testing, are suitable for vegetarians, with a large proportion being suitable for vegans.

We are passionate about natural skincare and make every effort to source products that are free from parabens, SLS, SLES, artificial perfumes, mineral oils, petrochemicals or harsh colourants. We have a huge range of hand picked natural and organic products, from simple plant based carrier and essential oils, to high-technology skin and hair formulations.

We have been recently investigating more products that use low or zero waste packaging and are proud to stock over 200 items that satisfy this criteria. We're happy to have forged relationships with small zero waste brands such as Georganics, F.E.T.E,Happy Holistics, Kitenest, Kutis, The Funky Soap Shop and Friendly Soap, the products offer a real alternative to plastic packaged products. We also offer a Faith In Nature Refill service for Shampoo, Conditioner , Shower Gel & Hand Wash. Simply bring your empty Faith In Nature bottle back to us and we'll refill it, saving you money and creating less plastic waste.
