In the past five years, green, eco-friendly makeup has revolutionized the beauty industry. From cannabis skincare fortified with hemp seed oil to rose quartz skin rollers, active botanicals have exploded on the beauty scene. More and more products are formulated without parabens, sulfate preservatives, and generic blends. Instead, beauty is all about small batches, organic ingredients, and cruelty-free practices. Vegan makeup: yes, it’s a thing.

Local beauty

Taking a cue from the culinary world, locally-sourced beauty gathers ingredients native to where they are produced. Lookout for brands like Tata Harper, which has its own farm-to-source formula ingredients.

Sustainable beauty is not limited to product ingredients. Look for packaging made from recycled and recyclable ingredients. And look for fun ways to repurpose glass bottles.

Ethical beauty

More and more, consumers are putting their money where their beliefs are. Look out for brands that oppose the use of palm oil, as the destruction of palm trees is disrupting the natural habitat of orangutans. With the wide array of oils on the market, beauty companies can source better ingredients, and customers can demand it.
