7 Certified Organic Beauty Products for Travelling
When travelling abroad or even within Australia you most probably want all your home comforts close by especially when it comes to beauty, hair and skincare products.
Of course, there are a multitude of travel products available, all designed to make light of your hold luggage and some even small enough to stow away in your hand luggage.
Travel products which are designed for short trips and vacations in mind with items for every type of beauty treatment imaginable is big business.
However, what happens when you only want to use organic beauty products for skincare and beauty? There seems to be somewhat of a shortage of organic beauty products in travel sizes.
So what can you do if you’ve been following a completely Certified Organic beauty regime? You wouldn’t want to compromise just because you are going on vacation or travelling for work purposes!
You already know the positive benefits of using Certified Organic natural products. You want to use lotions, haircare and skin creams which are free from artificial chemicals, without nasty preservatives and colourings and definitely with no harmful ingredients penetrating your skin.
We all know that organic travel size beauty products are more difficult to come by when shopping for a trip away and we know that some people spend time decanting their favourite organic products into travel sized containers.
Let’s face it; this can be tricky, especially when you’re scooping out thick creams and finding suitable bottles and pots to hold everything securely.
Well, if you have a travel product problem, you might have stumbled across your answer because we’ve found there are a number of outstanding Certified Organic skincare and beauty products designed especially with the frequent traveller in mind.
We’ve spent time researching the very best all-organic beauty, skincare and haircare products so we know what works well and which definitely don’t contain any artificial additives or chemicals.
We’ve also checked their organic certification so search no more because here’s our list of the top 7 Certified Organic beauty products we won’t travel without!

It could be the different water, it might be the humidity levels or perhaps it’s all that the time you spend swimming in the pool and sea. There’s no doubt about it, hair seems to suffer so much more on vacation!
We all take care of our skin but mustn’t forget that hair needs just as much nurturing to look its best and to minimise damage.
