While the world has been enamored with Kate Hudson’s launch of her new eco-friendly hair products, celebrity stylist Tara Smith has quietly gone and done the same. Her portfolio of stars over the years includes Demi Moore, Rosario Dawson, Orlando Bloom, Anna Friel, Gary Oldman, Natalie Imbruglia, Quentin Tarantino and many more. Her new range, which will officially be available in the UK’s Tesco stores October 1st, carries the tagline ‘Tested on film stars, not on animals’. From the article,

“Made in the UK with natural and organic earth-friendly ingredients and containing certified organic fragrances, the range is the first to deliver professional standard haircare performance in formulations free from harmful chemical additives. Even the products’ fully recyclable packaging has been designed with sustainability in mind – the pumps are all made in the same materials with no metal so they’re easy to recycle. The products’ swing tag is made from gorgeous handmade paper impregnated with wild seeds, and can be planted – at which point it will grow into a flower!”

Purposely excluded from the line are Parabens, SLES, PEGs, Phthalates, Glycols, Artificial Colourants, Synthetic Fragrances, Animal Derivatives.

People in the UK, rejoice! Another eco-friendly option in the grocery aisle — and one produced locally as well. Let’s hope more of these “green bathing” products take hold in U.S. markets as well.
