Why sustainable beauty is gaining popularity and which products we’re loving right now!

The sustainable beauty movement is growing and we love to see it! This is a trend we can totally get on board with and we’re loving the latest products  designed to help save the planet. From hair care to makeup, to skincare, sustainable beauty is here to stay. We’re rounding up the top reasons why we love it while giving you all the details on the latest sustainable products to shop from your fave brands.

What is sustainable beauty?

Sustainable beauty is a process. In addition to trying to include natural ingredients in the products’ formulas, some brands also opt to use sustainable, reusable packaging that allows for less waste after consumption. The sustainable beauty trend is something that has been gaining traction during recent months and we’re so happy to see some of our favourite brands come on board with new and exciting launches that are sustainable in their own unique ways.

Why is sustainable beauty a good thing?

Making the smallest impact is the biggest priority for brands that are creating sustainable beauty products. Making sure the end-to-end process (i.e. sourcing, manufacturing, product creation, packaging) all lines up with their sustainability mission is super important. Plus, small changes can make big differences, so cheers to protecting the planet!

Best of all, Fenty Icon is refillable which means it’s features sustainable packaging elements! Rihanna created this lipstick to be refillable because she knew you’d want to wear these shades over and over again- plus, the reusable packaging creates less waste when it comes to updating your new shade.

You can check out this product on Chatters- a salon-based retailer with locations across that country- that has a Style Consciously initiative which makes it easier for customers to shop products that the brand considers to be clean, sustainable, vegan, and cruelty-free (each product has a little symbol on it to show what pillar it falls under). We love that this is an easy way to shop smart!
