There’s a new personal care brand in town dedicated to creating amazing products that won’t harm the earth. The brainchild of a group of like-minded people who believe that looking good and doing good should go hand-in-hand, Love Beauty Planet started with one simple goal – “whatever we do must be good for beauty and give a little love to the planet”.

Love Beauty and Planet, Unilever’s latest beauty personal care launch, wants to show that you can be kind to the earth while still catering to your beauty needs to make a little difference towards a happier, less wasteful planet, one shower at a time. Born from the desire of creating a brand that would take care of both people and the planet, this revolutionary new beauty brand strongly believes that big changes start from something small.

Housed in vibrantly-packaged bottles made from 100% recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable (except for its caps), the brand aims to help consumers give a little bit of love back to the planet without compromising on beauty boosting results, one shower at a time.

“Sustainable and eco-friendly have become such a buzzword amongst Malaysians and we want to be part of our consumers’ journey towards shifting towards a greener lifestyle. While we believe that it’s not easy to save the planet and look amazing, we’re sure going to try. With Love Beauty and Planet, we want to encourage #smallactsoflove as we believe there are lots of little ways we can help restore balance and beauty on the plane without breaking a sweat,” said Vincent Chong, Marketing Director, Unilever (Malaysia) Holdings Sdn.

“We have never been more aware of the need to be more responsible in the choices we make, even for something as simple as the personal care brand we choose to use. We hope Love Beauty and Planet, with its 100% recycled bottles can be the small act of love that becomes a stepping stone to a more eco-conscious lifestyle, starting with reducing the use of new plastic and subsequently plastic wastage,” said Nuning Wahyuningsih, Senior Marketing Manager, Unilever (Malaysia) Holdings Sdn. Bhd.

The amount of plastic waste generated daily in Malaysia is alarming – being ranked as the eighth-worst country in the world for plastic waste and with a recycling rate of just 17.5% as a country seem to point towards a lackadaisical approach to how much plastic is being discarded. With plastic pollution being one of the main contributors to the growing decline of some of Malaysia’s beloved wildlife, Love Beauty and Planet is partnering with Malaysian Nature Society and to extend its #smallactsoflove to help the environment.

“Many of our beloved animals are being threatened due to a multitude of factors, including plastic pollution and this is no different for the 1,500 Malayan Tapirs left in Malaysia. Chemicals released by plastic pollution in water sources are one of the main contributors to the decline of these distinctive black-and-white beauties as they are harmful to the hormonal development of the tapirs, which consequently reduces their birth rate on top of a gestation period of 13 months,” said I.S. Shanmugaraj, Executive Director, Malaysian Nature Society.

For every purchase of any Love Beauty and Planet products, the brand will donate RM1 towards the conservation of Tapirs.
