Ethique is a 100 per cent solid skin and hair care company based in Christchurch, New Zealand. We are committed to making amazing-smelling, seriously bubbly hair, face and body bars using natural ingredients and compostable, or reusable packaging.

In 2012 Brianne started mixing up unique formulas in her kitchen, with the desire to create products that were fun to use whilst being a bit different, which didn't contribute to the massive amounts of wasteful packaging in the industry.

We've now outgrown the kitchen and set up in our lab, but our core guiding principle remains the same: healthy products, made with sustainable, naturally derived ingredients.

Brianne started Ethique because hair and skin care needed a shake up: simple, concentrated and sustainable products that deliver on results, without the waste.

 Why bars?

Solid cosmetics have loads of benefits. They last for ages because they’re so concentrated – one bar can last as long as five bottles of its liquid relative.  They're easier to travel with. We can skip the plastic bottles and use compostable paper packaging. 

You can feel smug about your purchase too, because every bar bought from us helps us support our charity partners; SAFE, WSPA, Greenpeace & HUHA

Try it and give up the bottle.

What or how does your business contribute to a more sustainable NZ?

As the bars contain no water, they are free from preservatives, formaldehyde, sodium lauryl sulphate and other undesirable ingredients. Being solid bars, there are no wasteful jars or bottles – bars are sold in water-soluble paper making them 100 per cent waste-free. The result is biodegradable, concentrated products that are truly sustainable. The range is also made with organic, certified cruelty-free and ethically-sourced ingredients.
