Ayllu Box - A new sustainable beauty and self care box
Have you heard of the beautiful Ayllu Box - a new sustainable beauty & self-care box that Purity has the pleasure of being featured in. The box focuses on promoting:

🌿Natural Ingredients
♻️Plastic-Free Packaging
🌼UK Small Businesses

Unlike many other beauty boxes, Ayllu Box isn’t a subscription box but rather a one-off purchase, allowing you to treat yourself and gift someone who loves a bit of self-care!

Ayllu Box was founded in the summer of 2021 by Natalija, who has been working in the field of sustainable fashion for the last few years. However, realising that it wasn’t enough to just change one aspect of her lifestyle, she began to make sustainable switches to her beauty and skincare routine. And while many of the available products were ‘clean’, ‘vegan’ and ‘cruelty free’, the thing that was repeatedly missing was plastic-free or a focus on sustainable packaging.

This inspired her to create a beauty box that focused on sustainable packaging as well as customisable self-care products, ensuring that all products are not only to your liking but also suited to YOUR skincare needs and routine.

All you have to do is choose one of their three types of boxes, depending on the core products that you’re looking for and then pick your favourite self-care treats!

The Meaning Behind Ayllu

Ayllu is an indigenous word, more specifically a Quechuan and Aymaran word, which are both languages spoken by indigenous peoples of the Andes. It is a term that refers to a traditional form of community or a network of families in the Andes.

However, the main factor was that each ayllu was self-sustaining, as all members had a responsibility to one another, whether this was in terms of education, land, food or trade. When Natalija decided to start her own small sustainable business all she could think of was how this was a community in itself and how we all have our own part and responsibility in addressing climate change.

Sustainable Packaging:

At Ayllu Box sustainable packaging is one of the core focuses. And while it may look like they use some plastic packaging it’s actually all biodegradable and made from bio materials. For example:
Inside each box you will find that the tea bags are packaged inside compostable bags made from  NatureFlex ™ – a 100% home compostable film made from cellulose, which is essentially sustainable wood pulp.
The shell & torso candles are wrapped in a biodegradable green bubble wrap.
