Now more than ever, many people have their eyes set firmly on sustainability and products which are kinder to the earth. This could be by using ingredients which come from vegan and cruelty free sources or making sure the products are plastic free or made from recycled material. Whatever the product, sustainable beauty is more than achievable and we’re showcasing five stunning products to prove it:
Made from certified sustainable ingredients, this White Jasmine Soap from The Sea Shed is enriched with shea butter for a moisturising finish. The formula is vegan friendly and hasn’t been tested on animals, while the packaging is recyclable and plastic free. It’s also free from parabens, SLS and SLES.
The ingredients within this mask from Evolve Organic Beauty are 100% natural origin and 85.1% organic. It contains a sustainable bio retinol from the plant bidens pilosa which works to smooth the skin, plump wrinkles, stimulate collagen synthesis and rejuvenate skin. It also contains rosehip oil to fight the signs of ageing, argan oil which is rich in vitamin C and sustainably sourced mineral mica for a golden shimmer.
Single use cotton wool balls can have a hugely negative effect on the environment, which is why anyone wishing to achieve a sustainable make up routine should make the swap for these hemp and cotton make up pads from UpCircle. Made from 100% natural materials, these pads will gently remove make up without causing irritation and can be washed in the washing machine on a medium or low setting, as well as being safe to put in the tumble dryer or even iron.
If you like to use masks to keep your skin in good condition, but wish to use one which contains sustainable ingredients, then this Superfood Vital Veggie Mask from Elemis is the ideal choice. It’s vegan friendly and the ingredients are 100% natural. It’s packed with nutrients from super greens, as well as fruit acids to boost radiance and smooth your complexion. It’s a unisex formulation which is suitable for all skin types and contains chia seed oil from sustainable sources.
These cleansing pads from JoJo glow are made from a microfibre material which is 100 times finer than human hair. This means that they deep clean your skin and remove impurities while avoiding any irritation. They are chemical free, as well as being vegan and cruelty free, and the packaging is completely biodegradable. Each pad can be used up to 200 times, making them more sustainable than many other face cleansing pads or wipes.
