As we all do our bit to look after our community by staying at home where possible and only popping out for the essentials –self-care is an incredible essential for ourselves. Anything we can do to relax and revitalise when living a day-to-day life that is vastly different to our norm of running around like the busy people we are, it is important in allowing us to remain focused and sane.
The Peggy Sue brand is all about self-care indulgent beauty for ourselves, while protecting the beauty in the world around us. Their plant-based, eco-friendly and sustainable products oppose the characteristics of the FMCG and fast-fashion industries by providing indulgent self-care products that encourage us to slow-down and enjoy an effective and indulgent self-care routine. To protect the beauty in the world around us and considering the cosmetics industry alone is accountable for 30 – 40% of landfill waste (epa.gov), the Peggy Sue brand was developed with the ethos that responsibility lies with brands, just as much as it does with consumers. For this reason, Peggy Sue provides refill options for some of their range as they power forward and pioneer a trend to break the consume-and-discard cycle.
The Peggy Sue self-care indulgent range includes compostable bath brew pockets that are like a big tea bag for your bath and unlike bath salts and bath bombs, they won't leave you sitting on grainy salts or leave a mess in the bath tub. The Peggy Sue Bath Brew Pockets fill your bath with colour, nutrients and beauty with a contained and easy-to-use biodegradable tea bag.
