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.
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.
Get inspired by ancient beauty rituals from Middle and South East Asia. Lookout for beauty beyond the bottle, and try this orgasmic Ayurvedic facial massage.
Let the celestial bodies inspire what you put on your skin. Look out for Moon Juice beauty elixirs that nourish from the inside out.
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.
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.
