What… KANKAN Lemon and Juniper Body Wash 

Why… Because this sustainable body wash will transport you to plastic-free heaven.

As lockdown restrictions begin to ease, a few of us are facing the uneasy feeling that during a global pandemic, we’ve neglected our well-intentioned commitments to be more sustainably-minded. The pressures of catching up on Netflix, baking some variation of focaccia and going for the occasional jog meant that living an eco-friendly life wasn’t always at the forefront of our minds. But as today is Plastic Free Beauty Day – and because we’re always trying to do better – we’re championing KANKAN, a sustainable beauty brand whose solution to reducing their plastic consumption has resulted in packaging their soap’s in cans.

While the ensemble may leave some dubious, the concept is simple yet environmentally effective. The can of soap should be used as a refill for the ‘forever bottle’ that the starter kit includes, meaning no plastic will be guiltily thrown away. While most plastics can only be recycled twice, aluminium cans can be recycled indefinitely, a process which sustainable stalwarts will adore to hear, uses 95% less energy. While all three scents spread across the hand, body and baby washes are divine, we can’t get enough of the energising effects the Lemongrass and Juniper body wash has during our morning showers – and it’s natural and vegan, of course. On top of this, female-led KANKAN is partnered with One Tree Planted, to plant a tree for every can sold, making this as environmentally ethical as a can of soap can be.

KANKAN, along with WE ARE PARADOXX, Circla and Vanderohe, is celebrating Plastic Free Beauty Day 2020 by donating the profits of all sales on the 17th June to Plastic Oceans UK. The coronavirus lockdown has seen a surge of domestic plastic waste, so the commitment of one plastic-free day can make a huge difference to the planet. The humble can is a sustainable package, and a clear step in the right direction. KANKAN is striving towards a sustainable future with the motto, yes I can
