Will you be camping in the UK this summer? Compile your camp kit with our guide to the best toiletries and sunscreen for camping holidays in the UK.
Our travel-friendly skin & body products contain ingredients that are:
- Safe for the environment
- Natural & organic
- Kind to sensitive skin
Best sunscreen for camping
Our compact sun cream kits protect skin from the sun without taking too much space in your tent or caravan.
For overnight camping adventures Green People’s Family Sun Starter Kit contains a trio of trial-sized sun care and offers effective natural and organic sun protection for all skin types.
Best deodorant for camping
If you go camping to enjoy hiking in the hills or kayaking on the lake, you’ll want a deodorant that gives long-lasting freshness. All our natural and organic roll-on deodorants are made with Prebiotics, Zinc Ricinolate and Potassium Alum which work in synergy to balance the microbiome and stop bacterial body odours from becoming airborne.
If you’re worried that using scented skin care could attract unwanted attraction from campsite wasps and other insects, try our Scent Free Deodorant. This offers the same body odour-neutralising action but is made without any essential oils.
Best toothpaste for camping
Most campsites will have a toilet block where you can brush your teeth but if you’re wild-camping, be sure to use a natural toothpaste that won’t have adverse effects on the environment.
All of our toothpastes are made with antibacterial plant oils and leave the mouth feeling fresh and clean. Most of our toothpaste are fluoride-free but if you’ve been tucking into campsite treats such as sugary marshmallow smores, you may prefer to use our fluoride Organic Children’s toothpaste which can be used by adults and children alike.
Best shampoo for camping
The best environmentally friendly shampoo for camping is an SLS-free shampoo that’s made with biodegradable natural actives that won’t harm the environment if they run onto the ground or into a waterway.
All our natural shampoos are SLS-free and the shampoo we recommend for UK camping holidays is our Quinoa & Artichoke Shampoo. This comes in a 200ml or 100ml bottle and has a zesty Ginger and Lemon scent that will help to mask smoky campfire smells that linger in the hair.
The best hand wash for camping holidays
A healthy camp is a happy camp, and we can all play a part in keeping bugs at bay by keeping our hands fresh and clean. Campsite bathroom facilities don’t always make this easy but carry our Deep Cleansing Hand Foam with you and you will be able to rely on this 2-in-1 hand cleanser to freshen hands – regardless of whether you have access to running water or not.
Each bottle delivers around 200 uses and when dispensed into dry hands the antibacterial actives will leave hands feeling soft and clean. For extra germ-zapping power rinse hands with water after use.
The best products for camping with kids
