How do I choose eco-friendly beauty products?
If this is your first foray into the organic or eco-friendly beauty industry you may be wondering how to choose the correct ones. One great way is to look at the packaging and search for certifications like organic ingredients, plant-based, vegan, cruelty-free, and clean or nontoxic. Also, consider the packaging. Many zero-waste beauty products have packaging that is easy to refill, or use biodegradable raw materials, or recyclable materials. And finally research the company. See if they responsibly source their natural ingredients. Consider their mission and if they value sustainability and how they manufacture their sustainable beauty products. As you slowly transition your beauty products to sustainable beauty products you’ll be surprised how your skin will glow and your heart will too as you give back to the environment.
