Become Green Heroes With These Sustainable Shower Essentials for Camping and Travelling

Nomads, take note! 2021 is the time to rise up and take responsibility for our ecological footprint, one small step at a time. Let’s join hands and aim to live a little greener and consume a bit less. A great way to start adopting eco-friendly habits is to use organic products when travelling. What if we told you that it’s possible to look flawless on the go while saving the planet?

You can now look and smell amazing (with a clean conscience!) anywhere in the world, thanks to Yves Rocher‘s new line of eco-designed products. The #GREENHEROS collection of shampoos and shower gels will make you sleep easy, knowing that you’re doing good for the earth, and feel fresh like the eco-groovy superhero you are.

Welcome to the solid shampoo revolution!

Mother Nature can breathe a sigh of relief.

Say goodbye to plastic!

Did you know that several countries still don’t recycle? Yes, this means your plastic bottles go straight into the trash. Gross. So much for your zero waste backpacker lifestyle. Ditching bottles can save landfills from receiving up to 30 tonnes of plastic per year! Thankfully, the packaging for the Green Heroes shampoo bars is made from 60% recycled cardboard and is 100% recyclable.

Decrease your consumption

You will love the solid shampoo bar for its compact and travel-friendly size and for how it significantly reduces your water consumption. You will use about 8 times less water with the bar than with a liquid shampoo. The bar is also equivalent to two 300 ml bottles of regular shampoo. Eco-friendly and economical!

Leave no trace

Ethical backpackers know that they must leave a site exactly as they found it out of respect for the planet. With that in mind, doesn’t it seem silly to wash your hair with conventional shampoo? No forest floor or jungle stream deserves an infusion of the chemical kind. The Green Heroes solid shampoo bars are composed of 99% biodegradable ingredients, so there’s no need to worry about contaminating the earth when you shower.

Three shampoos to meet your needs

The Green Heroes solid shampoo bars are designed to clean and nourish all hair types. They also smell amazing and lather surprisingly well. Whether you have normal to oily hair, dry or dull hair or chemically coloured hair, you can find the right shampoo for you:

“Nutrition” shampoo bar

If your hair is damaged by the sun and the sea, solid nutrition shampoo is what you need. The “Nutrition” formula will transform your dry and brittle hair into soft, shiny and hydrated waves full of vitality.

“Shine” shampoo bar

The earth isn’t flat, so why does your hair have to be? The solid shine shampoo will give bounce to your dull or coloured hair thanks to its organic calendula formula. Your hair will shine on every continent.

“Gentle” shampoo bar

If your hair is normal to oily and you wash it often, or perhaps daily, you’ll need a gentle formula like the solid gentle shampoo with organic chamomile. It is designed for all hair types and is especially effective on hair that tends to get greasy. Results? Clean and radiant hair that stays fresh for longer. 

NOMADIC TIP: Leave the cardboard box at home and only bring the metal box with you. Afterwards, you can reuse it as a cosmetic or jewelry box.

How do you use solid shampoo?

You apply the shampoo to your wet hair (either by rubbing it between your hands first or applying it directly), massage your scalp to work up a lather, and then rinse! So easy!

Shower gels with green values

Since you’ll have all that extra space in your carry-on, why not bring the concentrated shower gel? It’s the perfect travel size at only 100 ml and holds enough product to last you the equivalent of 40 showers. The innovative formula uses half the plastic and CO² required by a full-sized bottle. This mighty small bottle is made from 100% recycled plastic.

Made with 99% biodegradable ingredients, this is what you’ll need when camping or travelling. It has never been easier to travel green! The best part? It comes with a smart cap that dispenses the amount you need for a shower. We love that! We tried the olive scent, and it was intoxicating! Even better: With every bottle purchased, the Yves Rocher Foundation plants a tree. How lovely is that?

Ideal for vanlife and camping

The solid shampoo bar and the concentrated shower gels are perfect for camping as they take up little space and are easy to transport. You don’t need a lot of water to use them, which is always critical when camping or camping. Now you can be in harmony with nature!

Essential for your travels

Whether you are going on a trip to Tobermory or the heart of the Amazon rainforest, solid shampoos will bring you peace of mind on the go. And you won’t have any restrictions at the airport since you’re not dealing with liquids. Just pack the bar and its sturdy cosmetic box in your carry-on bag, and you’re good to go. Don’t forget the concentrated shower gel. The fact that it promises 40 showers in a 100 ml bottle makes it essential for your next trip.
