Ingredients to Avoid: Microbeads

After the response I got to my surprisingly non-vegetarian foods post (and a huge thankyou to for sharing it around, I’m so glad it was helpful!) I thought I would start a new series here on I Spy Plum Pie, focusing on ingredients we should all be avoiding. Sometimes it will be a food, and other times something that shows up in skincare, makeup or other household items and we’re kicking things off with microbeads!


Spotlight On: Original & Mineral

This is the third instalment of my series profiling brands I love that are doing great things with natural, planet friendly products. Today the focus is on Original & Mineral (or O&M as they seem to be known!) which is an Australian brand selling hair products that are all free of ammonia and other nasties, whilst still being salon quality. In fact, the brand started in an Australian salon and the products including dyes, shampoos, conditioners and styling products are used in salons across Australia. Luckily, they are also available for purchase to be used at home!
