When it comes to self-care, nothing is more empowering than knowing that your little bit of pampering is not only being kind to yourself, but to the environment as well.
If you haven’t caught on already, we are strong supporters of eco-friendly beauty brands. This includes ethical beauty brands with a passion for reducing waste and pollution in our environment, as well as brands that see being 'eco-friendly' as a way of life, not just for actively ethical consumers.
We believe that environmentally friendly beauty brands are for everyone. Because if everyone contributes to being more environmentally mindful, more can be done for our planet.
To share our passion for being kind to the earth (beyond just Earth Day), we’ve put together a roundup of our favourite environmentally friendly beauty brands. From haircare and skincare to makeup - we’ve got you covered. These are the eco friendly beauty brands you need to start using in your everyday self-care routine.

What makes an environmentally friendly beauty brand?
The term ‘environmentally friendly’ (or ‘eco-friendly’), is defined as a product that is not harmful to the environment.
So what makes an environmentally friendly beauty brand, eco-friendly? There's a lot we can look at! But in short, it can include the ingredients used (cruelty-free, vegan, organic, natural and palm oil free) as well as business practices (ethical sourcing, sustainable packaging, waste and resource management, and charitable giving). For more of a rundown, check out this list of criteria - it explains everything you need to know!
We acknowledge that not all these criteria can be met every time for various reasons. However, it's important to still support a brand that is striving to be the best they can be, as any mindful choice is a step in the right direction.
