Local personal care brand expands solutions without plastic bottles

Human Nature expands its plastic bottle-free product line with the introduction of its first-ever facial bar.

Environmental issues continue to persist and are reaching historic highs as the cycle of plastic consumption in the Philippines continues. A study published in the journal Science Advances shows that the Philippines contributed more than a third of the plastic waste that ended up in the Earth’s oceans, with the Pasig River being the main source of plastic pollution.

This is also driven by its “bag economy”, which has led to the proliferation of cheap but unsustainable single-use plastics that end up polluting the land and ocean.

Driven by its longstanding commitment to sustainability, local personal care and home care brand Human Nature continues to provide plastic bottle-free, cost-effective solutions that are better for the planet and better for the skin. By April this year, Human Nature had already saved 22.8 tonnes of plastic bottles from ending up in landfills, beaches and oceans as well.

Today, Human Nature offers the widest range of solutions without plastic bottles.

Expanding this range, Human Nature recently launched its very first face bar, the Sunflower Face Bar.

The brand continues to unveil more and more products with less or even zero plastic material. It started launching shampoo bars in 2019, and with its continued push for more sustainable products for Filipino families, it released more variants for kids and men.

It has also expanded its line of bars into personal and home care with the launch of its Feminine Wash Bar, breakthrough dishwashing powder, and baby bottle and utensil cleaning powder. Many of them are equivalent to one to two bottles minimum of their liquid counterparts, saving consumers money and storage space while helping the planet.
