From the ingredients selected to its clever packaging solutions, natural haircare brand Airfro has made sustainability part of its DNA.

It works with every tampon size and lasts for life, so you can get on with your period without adding to plastic waste.
Ethical production is at the heart of Lethal Cosmetics’ range and the brand is committed to offering animal and planet-friendly products.
