Cincinnati, OH--Plaine Products, a Cincinnati-based company dedicated to protecting the environment by eliminating single-use packaging, is excited to announce the launch of its new unscented collection of personal care products, including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and body lotion.
The newly launched products were developed in direct response to growing market demand for an unscented version of the company’s vegan, toxin-free, plastic-free personal care products, giving those with allergies, sensitivities, or an aversion to scent more options for skin and hair sourced from a company that shares their commitment to the environment.
“Fragrance is such a personal choice driven by countless factors,” explained Plaine Products co-founder and CEO Lindsey McCoy. “Our scented products have always been developed using natural essential oils, and therefore safe for all skin types and members of the family. However, this did not work for some. Many customers told us they were looking for a company like ours, with products like ours, just minus the scent,” she said.
Those with sensitive skin, preexisting skin conditions, allergies, or even a hypersensitive sense of smell can get irritated by the ingredients in fragrances, even natural ones like essential oils. Even those who have never suffered from sensitive or irritated skin can develop contact dermatitis that can often be triggered by essential oils or ingredients that can be generically labeled as “fragrance.” Companies often use that designation on their labels to protect their proprietary formulations. However, these unknown toxins could possibly be harmful, especially to those with sensitivities or allergies, as well as to the environment.
Plaine Products is committed to ingredient transparency and their entire product line uses toxin-free, biodegradable ingredients that are free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicone, and palm oil. The cruelty-free, Leaping Bunny certified products are also baby safe and hypoallergenic, with the new fragrance free option giving new options for those with concerns about any type of added fragrance or scent. Good for the body and the earth, the unscented shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and body lotion arrive in uniquely sustainable packaging. The company remains committed to giving alternatives to plastic products. All of their products are packaged in reusable, refillable aluminum bottles with reusable pumps. Customers return their empty bottles to be cleaned, refilled and returned to circulation.
Similar to the scented line of Rosemary Mint Vanilla and Citrus Lavender, the unscented body lotion, body wash, shampoo, and conditioner can be ordered via the website at plaineproducts.com and on Amazon.com, as well as in the Package Free Shop. Available in 16-ounce bottles, Plaine Products also offers a 2.5-ounce travel size for those wishing to try a sample. Products are available for one-time purchase or via recurring subscription for an additional 10% discount.
