sustainable skincare

Updated: Sep 25, 2020



Currently, my favorite sustainable skincare companies are True Botanicals and Beauty Counter.

True Botanicals has an array of cleansers, mists & toners, face oils, serums & treatments, sunscreens, eye treatments, hair & body, and aromatherapy products. All of their products are made exclusively with ingredients independently certified-nontoxic for humans and the environment by MADE SAFE™, cruelty free, Leaping Bunny–certified, non-GMO, gluten free, and vegan. They are also running a brand campaign called "Love Life" that celebrates the nature of loving life—of embracing the wild within, fully inhabiting your own life, and tapping into the possibilities of your beliefs. My favorite part is that everything is delivered in sustainable, recyclable packaging and all the products are in glass!!


My current favorite products include:


hydrating cleanser | $48


Thoroughly cleans without stripping. Sloughs away dead skin. Leaves skin softer and hydrated.

Beauty Counter has products ranging from skin care to makeup to bath & body. The company was started by a wife and mother who wanted to create progress in the personal care industry by creating safe products. The mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone. Along with the company's long list safe and chemical free products, they also have many trusted non-profit partners like Healthy Child Healthy World, Great Cancer Prevention Partners, and Environmental Working Group.


My favorites currently include:


charcoal cleansing bar | $25


Ideal for oily or blemish-prone skin, this detoxifying cleansing bar absorbs impurities in your skin without drying it out, resulting in a clearer, smoother, and brighter-looking complexion. Made with purifying Japanese binchotan charcoal, antioxidant-rich organic green tea, and hydrating organic coconut oil, the gentle formula can be used daily on your face and body.


cleansing balm | $80


This multi-tasking balm is brimming with uses and benefits. It's a nourishing daily cleanser, a melting makeup-removing balm, and a deeply replenishing overnight mask. It also hydrates with nutrient-rich raspberry and cranberry seed oils and promotes a brighter complexion with radiance-boosting vitamin C.


Happy & sustainable cleansing!
