On-the-Go Clean Beauty Essentials for Hair, Body & Lips

When you’re on the go, you want all the natural beauty comforts of home—but without the bulk. That’s where these sustainable beauty travel hacks come in. We offer some secrets on what to pack—and what can substitute in a pinch, so you can pack light.

The key when traveling is to pack natural better-for-you and cruelty-free multi-tasking essentials. When your products work double or even triple duty, you can pack less. All our Pharmacopia products are rich in plant-based goodness that can work on skin, hair, and lips.

With this in mind, here are the five sustainable beauty must-haves to take with you when you’re on the go:

  1. Pack a natural lip balm. Our favorite multi-tasker is our Tangerine Lip Elixir. It truly is a sustainable jack-of-all-trades that deserves a spot in any travel bag.

    This large size balm contains 70% organic ingredients and is chock-full of hydrating olive oil, vitamin E, and hemp seed oil. It’s also rich in calendula flower oil, castor oil, comfrey leaf extract, jojoba oil, and shea butter. It keeps lips soft, smooth, and chap free, but it also does much more.

    You can use our lip balm to soften and condition cuticles, and even moisturize dry hands. You can use it as a brow tamer, eye balm, dry skin fix, heel balm, and even split end conditioner. And it can also fix flyaway hair strands in a pinch.

    And wait, there’s more! Add a sugar bag from any restaurant to a tiny bit of the balm to make a natural sugar scrub for your lips. Just rub gently onto lips, then rinse off with lukewarm water. It helps to banish chapped lips and keeps lips super soft and smooth.
  1. Pack travel-size hair care favorites. If you’re flying and taking a carry-on, you won’t have much room to pack all your beauty essentials so you’ll need to plan accordingly. If you’re staying in a hotel, you can’t be sure what toiletries you’ll be getting in your hotel room, that is, unless you’re staying in a Hyatt Regency, where our sustainable, plant-based Argan Oil products are featured in their luxurious bathrooms. Our exclusive Hyatt Hotels Argan Oil Collection Shampoo and Conditioner come in handy two-ounce travel sizes. They contain super hydrating argan oil as well as other natural good-for-you ingredients like aloe vera.

    Our Argan Oil shampoo nourishes the scalp and boosts shine, thanks to its clean, plant-based ingredients. And our Argan Oil Conditioner leaves hair soft and manageable. Our conditioner is also lightweight enough to be used as a leave-in conditioner. Put a little in hair before you fly (plane air is notoriously dry and can leave hair strands parched) for softer, more manageable locks when you land.

    And if you use up your shampoo and conditioner—or any travel-size products—while you’re away, be sure to save your bottles. You can refill them from our 16-ounce bottles the next time you travel. (All our product bottles are made from 100% post-consumer recycled bottles.)
  1. Make your body wash and body lotion work harder. Our travel-size Hyatt Hotels Argan Oil Collection Body Wash and Body Lotion do more than just cleanse and hydrate skin.

    You can add a few squirts of the body wash to a bath for suds with aromatic essences of green tea and melon. Or add it to a small amount of water in a tub for a relaxing foot soak after a day of walking or sightseeing. You can even mix in coffee grounds from the hotel coffee bar to your body wash for an invigorating scrub.

    Our Hyatt Hotels Argan Oil Collection Body Lotion can hydrate parched skin after traveling—and do double-duty as a shave lotion while you’re away. What’s more, since it contains gentle natural ingredients, you can also use a tiny bit as a makeup remover and even use it to help control flyaways. (Just add a little lotion to the ends of hair and give them a tiny twist.)
  1. Add a bar soap to your suitcase. Our Citrus, Verbena, and Mint Argan Body Soaps have natural scents, thanks to the aromatic essential oils they’re infused with. And by adding this bar soap to your clothes, this means when you open your suitcase, you’ll get a subtle hint of orange, bergamot, and grapefruit from our Citrus Body Bar; peppermint from our Mint Argan Body Bar; and citrus, mint, basil, and more from our Verbena Body Bar. And, in the spirit of doubling up, you’ll also have extra sustainable soap if you need it. 
  1. Bring a reusable water bottle. Drinking plenty of water is one of the most important travel beauty essentials. Traveling can leave you—and hair and skin—parched. And even just being on the go can mean that you’re not drinking as much water as you’re used to. By bringing your own reusable water bottle (leave it empty when checking in for a flight), you can fill it up on the go and avoid having to buy plastic water bottles that are bad for the environment.

Smart packing when it comes to natural beauty essentials ensures that your skin, hair, and lips will stay hydrated, radiant, and healthy on the go. And by packing sustainable, plant-based Pharmacopia products, you’ll be ensuring that all this plant-based goodness will be part of your beauty travel essentials no matter where you are in the world.
