Nurturing our Hormonal Health with Aleph x Hello Period:

True health begins from within and it’s essential to be mindful of the products we use on our bodies and consume daily. It’s a sad fact that many mainstream cosmetics and period products contain hormone-disrupting chemicals such as dioxin, pesticides, fragrances, and microplastics. 

What we put in and on our bodies really matters - and can impact our overall health and wellbeing.

Aleph Beauty and Hello Period are united in their commitment to providing products that are safe, trustworthy, and free from hormone-disruptors, particularly for women who are more vulnerable to their effects.

Caring for Our Planet: Reducing Unnecessary Waste:

The health of our bodies is intricately tied to the health of our planet. Our environment supplies the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we consume. It is our responsibility to make conscious choices that preserve and protect the planet that sustains us.

Our bathrooms are often cluttered with single-use plastics, from makeup wipes to tampons, cosmetic packaging, cotton pads, and razors. The beauty industry, in particular, generates an overwhelming amount of packaging waste, with billions of units produced each year, most of which end up in landfills or pollute our waterways.

Tampons and single-use pads contribute enormously to environmental degradation, with an estimated 45 billion single-use menstruation products ending up in landfills annually. Yup, you read that right. And to make matters worse, traditional tampons and pads can take hundreds of years to disintegrate due to the presence of added plastics. By opting for sustainable alternatives and reducing waste, we can make a significant positive impact on the health of our planet.

Believing sustainable period care was the way of the future was what led Robyn McLean and Mary Bond to start Hello Period (then called Hello Cup) in 2017. 

It was a similar passion and commitment to creating something better that the status quo that led to top makeup artist Emma Peters founding Aleph. She was always on the lookout for makeup that also delivered skincare benefits at the same time but, when nothing appeared on the market, she decided to create her own range. Aleph is as nurturing as it is flattering. Consciously formulated with premium vegan ingredients that actively nourish the skin, Aleph is clean makeup but with skincare benefits. Every Aleph product is designed to work in synergy with each other to create endless textures, shades and finishes. 

Both Aleph Beauty and Hello Period are deeply committed to creating products that are kind to the Earth. We strive to minimize waste and packaging, encouraging reuse whenever possible, and offer effective recycling systems to ensure circularity throughout the life of our products. Recognizing that we have a single-use planet, we are determined to tread lightly and minimize our ecological footprint.

Collaborative Efforts for a Sustainable Future:

Positive change requires collective effort, and businesses and brands play a vital role in driving this change. Companies that prioritize sustainable production methods and champion eco-friendly initiatives contribute to a healthier planet.

Health from the inside out encompasses both personal well-being and the health of our planet. By consciously choosing products that do not harm our bodies and the environment, we can enhance our overall health and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Together, we have the power to shape a world where personal well-being and planetary health go hand in hand. Let’s embrace this interconnected approach and make conscious choices that benefit ourselves and the planet we call home.
