Making beauty sustainable

With increasing demands on the environment and natural resources depleting at a worrying rate, being kinder to our planet has never been more important. At MONU, we’re advocates of clean, ethical and guilt-free skincare and with so much talk around the subject of sustainability, especially within the beauty industry, we wanted to take the opportunity to demonstrate how we remain environmentally-conscious.  

Products & Packaging

We pride ourselves on our wide range of natural, cruelty-free products, which are formulated, packaged and sent to you from our factory in Cheltenham. Being conscious about the environment, we strive to make eco-friendly choices, that’s why our ingredients are sourced locally where possible, whilst our packaging comes exclusively from British suppliers and is 100% recyclable.

Ingredients

We want you to recognize the ingredients in your skincare. We don’t use synthetics or toxic chemicals in our formulations, instead we use plant-derived alternatives that you recognise, as well as vitamins, minerals and essential oils. Plus, with years to perfect our formulations, you can rest assured that we don’t compromise on quality.

Some of the ingredients we actively avoid include:

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulphates (SLS)

This synthetic soap strips the skin of its natural oils. Redness, dryness and irritation are common side effects of SLS use. Instead, MONU use Soapwort, a mild foaming agent, that naturally cleanses the skin.

  • Microbeads

Used in exfoliation products, these tiny fragments of plastic make their way down the sink and into our oceans after every use. Due to the devasting effects of plastic on both our sea life and wildlife, microbeads have now been banned throughout the beauty industry. MONU are proud to say that we have never used microbeads, instead we opt for natural alternatives, like Diatomaceous Earth, in our exfoliation products.   

  • Lanolin

Derived from the sebaceous glands of sheep, Lanolin acts as a lubricant for dry skin. However, it’s also been found to irritate and cause allergic reactions, especially in sensitive skin types. Due to the risk of irritation and congestion, we avoid using the ingredient throughout our skin and body ranges.

Our Heritage

We’re incredibly proud of our rich heritage, which spans over three decades. It’s this invaluable experience, coupled with our loyal customers and therapists, that has enabled us to develop a fantastic range of innovative, natural skincare. We offer something to suit every skin type, whilst tackling a plethora of beauty concerns; from anti-ageing solutions and blemish treatments to dry-skin soothers and clarifiers for oily complexions, you’re sure to find something to help your skin radiate a healthy, natural glow.

Slim Now Keto 24 Jan 2022, 05:58 (2 days ago)


A keto diet is a low carb and high fat diet that is beneficial for those looking to lose weight and increase metabolic rate. This diet has increasingly become popular due to the fast results it delivers. In this diet, your consumption of carbohydrates should be less than the consumption of fats. These fats are healthy fats which your body will then use to convert into energy and increase your metabolic rate and consequently boost your activity.

Belly fat is easy to gain but hard to lose. Besides a fatty diet, there are many reasons that can cause you to pile on belly fat such as stress, lack of disease and in some cases lifestyle diseases like diabetes. Exercise alone is not enough to lose belly fat and maintain your weight. Your daily diet places a crucial role in fighting belly fat.

PT Trim Fat Burn supplement 24 Jan 2022, 05:46 (3 days ago)


Exercising to lose weight comes down to calories burned. It is true, that in the fat burn zone you will burn more stored fats as your main energy source. Yet your total caloric burn during this time is minimal. When you exercise in a cardio zone, you will burn more glycogen, or stored carbohydrates as your main energy source, using less fat, nevertheless, your total caloric burn is much greater.

Many nutrient-rich foods are sources of carbohydrates, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, milk and yogurt. On a keto diet, carbs from all sources are severely restricted.

Weight loss is a decrease in overall body weight. This weight can include; muscle, fat, and water from the body. That’s it. Weight loss is simply a loss of overall body weight. Fat loss is a reduction in body fat. Reducing body fat is what most people want to achieve. Fat loss is more specific than weight loss. We can lose body fat by reducing calories, just like with weight loss. But the quality of food we consume for fat loss is more important. We need to be more specific about our macronutrient intake, i.e. protein, carbohydrate and fat intake. TruKeto

Unexplained weight loss is a noticeable drop in body weight that occurs even if the person is not trying to lose weight. The weight loss does not come about because of diet, exercise or lifestyle changes. Weight loss of 10 pounds or more, or five percent of body weight, over a period of 6 to 12 months is considered “unexplained.” Adimin
