In the early days of green beauty it was difficult to find (predominantly in high end health-food stores) and didn’t go the distance of mainstream beauty brands. But oh, how things have changed!
These days, the green beauty market is saturated with amazing brands diversifying their reach and offering a huge array of products for every beauty need. However, there is still a stigma attached to green beauty products and their comparisons with mainstream brands. We completely understand- you’re looking for products that go the distance and provide you with a high-quality finish, which is what you get from your faithful regular brands. But hear us out- there are huge benefits in choosing green beauty products, and are many brands out there delivering the highest quality products without sacrificing on anything!
The biggest alarm bell for us, is the number of potentially harmful chemicals found in regular beauty products. The skin is our biggest organ- which begs the question, why is there not more concern surrounding the number of chemicals we are lathering onto it, through our beauty products? Women put an average of 168 chemicals on their bodies each day through their various beauty products. But how can this be avoided? Through a little bit of research and making the simple switch to green beauty products. Other than the obvious benefit of saying goodbye to the harsh chemicals, the majority of green brands are also vegan and cruelty free certified and in many cases eco-friendly and ethical minded.
One of our favourites for natural skin care is Edible Beauty. Their product range epitomises purity, luxury and quality; making the promise if you wouldn’t put it in your mouth, we won’t put it in our products. For dewy, radiant, all-over glow, Luma Beauty is a beautiful choice. Their highlighter stick, illuminating primer and bronzing primer, all gorgeous products for a natural day-to-day look. When it comes to full glam green makeup, Eco Minerals is at the top of our list. Their mineral foundation goes on beautifully and is build-able for a tailored finish.
There’s one thing to remember before making the switch to green beauty products. Not all ‘natural’ and ‘green’ products are created equally. There is no governing body determining whether a product can be labelled as natural or not, so make sure to read ingredients labels carefully, or look out for their certifications before making your decision.
