Green beauty is here to stay — and these 10 amazing product lines prove it.
Until about 10 years ago, we didn’t really pay much attention to the ingredients in our skin care and makeup. If it left our skin feeling softer and looking flawless, we were totally down to shellac that stuff on — but recently, we’ve become more aware that what we put on our skin actually ends up in our bodies, and the beauty industry has taken notice.
And the industry is also taking advantage by “green-washing” their products. That’s right, just because a company markets itself as “clean,” doesn’t mean that it is. And to complicate things more, some of the companies that really are clean sell products that don’t get the job done. It’s enough to make you want to crawl back to your old dirty ways.
But that doesn’t mean that all clean beauty products are total BS. There are some amazing lines out there that are natural and really deliver results. These guys craft their makeup and skin care around whole plant sources, organic ingredients, no chemical preservatives, gluten-free contents, animal-friendly practices and eco-friendly packaging.
