Green Mint & Lemongrass Hand Wash

No reviews

  • UpCircle’s citrus-scented natural hand wash is fragranced with refreshing peppermint and zesty lemongrass oil. It leaves your hands feeling cleansed and fresh.

    Lemongrass Oil
    Lemongrass has antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties. Its antioxidant-rich compounds are one of the factors that make it an anti-inflammatory ingredient. It is therefore a great oil for soothing irritated skin and calming redness.

    Peppermint Oil
    Peppermint is most famous for its cooling effects. It contains menthol for an automatic soothing sensation, perfect for calming irritation too. The oil naturally cleanses the skin, is antiviral and is also high in Vitamins A and C!

    Mandarin Oil
    Mandarin oil is a great skincare ingredient due to its antiseptic and calming properties. It is also a very rich source of Vitamin C, a powerful natural antioxidant which has many essential roles such as fighting free radicals and wound healing.

    Packaging
    The handwash comes in a bottle made from glass with a pump made from plastic. Now you may be thinking: plastic? Though we are committed to selling plastic-free products, for some products we make a small exception. For your next order keep the pump from your first bottle and select the refill option with aluminium cap.

    There is a plastic liner in the cap which makes the bottle leakproof and airtight. It also helps to preserve the product longer and protect the lid from the essential oils in the handwash. Essential oils can cause aluminium to oxidise (meaning it develops a black coating) which can spoil the product. At present, there is no suitable alternative. We recommend reusing the bottles as much as you can and if you do throw them away, recycle the plastic liner separately. The packaging is fully recyclable.

About the brand

UpCircle

In 2016, UpCircle siblings Will and Anna quit their jobs and risked it all to nurture and grow their by-product beauty baby. The circular economy sits at the heart of what UpCircle does. UpCircle hints at ‘upcycling’, the process of making something better from things that already exist. The UpCircle mission is to leave the world better than they found it by transforming ingredients that would otherwise be discarded into natural, organic beauty products.

Each product in UpCircle’s range sources and rescues by-products from other industries – the food and drink industry in particular. The UpCircle story started with the idea of giving used coffee grounds a new lease of life. UpCircle now also gives chai tea spices and fruit stones a new beginning. At UpCircle nothing is safe from being UpCircled! Food ingredients can have powerful effects on the body - inside and out – so there’s an opportunity to create beauty products from food ingredients that are being discarded yet still have much to offer our skin.

UpCircle uses only the finest plant-based ingredients, and never test on animals. The packaging across UpCircle’s range is 99% plastic-free and they offer plastic-free refill options for the 1%.
