There are a lot of values I look for when discovering new brands. Are their ingredients clean and non-toxic? Do they use sustainable packaging? Are they working towards a greater good vs. just trying to make profits? It’s definitely rare that a brand checks ALL of my values. Today I am so happy to share one that meets them all: Plaine Products.
This post is sponsored by Plaine who generously sent me their products in exchange for an honest review. This post also contains affiliate links. Thank you for reading and supporting my little blog!
Plaine Products was founded by two sisters, Lindsey and Alison Delaplaine, and it began with a dream to have less plastic in the world. After looking around their bathrooms and realizing how much plastic they owned, the sisters started thinking about how to change that, and how to make it easy for others to do the same. They make natural shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, body wash, face wash, and face moisturizer.

When you’re getting low, you can order a refill bottle or subscribe and a bottle will automatically be sent. Just rinse out your empty bottle and switch the pump to your new bottle.

Which Plaine Products I Tried
Shampoos: Citrus Lavender + Rosemary Mint Vanilla
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that this was my favorite natural shampoo of 2018! There’s so much to like about these. The formula produces the perfect amount of lather. What’s really cool is that the pumps are designed to dispense the exact amount of shampoo you need so you don’t overdo it and use too much. The formulas are safe for color-treated hair.
It just makes my hair feel SO clean, and both of these smell amazing too! I’ve definitely tried natural shampoos that left my hair feeling heavy and slightly greasy. So I appreciate that these are sustainably-packaged, have clean ingredients, AND perform!
My husband also uses this shampoo and I use it to wash my dog as well! It’s safe for pets.
First of all, this bottle is huuuuuge for a hand soap! I love the blend of bright citrus and soothing lavender essential oils. This soap comes out as a gel but it lathers really nicely yet doesn’t strip my skin or dry it out. My hands definitely feel nice and clean after washing with this.
The body wash formula is similar to the shampoo. It’s gentle but makes me feel clean. I actually really like to use this as a shaving gel! It forms a good lather that makes it easy to shave with a safetzy razor. Who doesn’t love multi-functional products?!
Psst…you can also buy Plaine from EarthHero online market – they carry so many awesome zero waste brands!
