Sustainable Skincare Brands
I started writing a post on how to choose sustainable beauty brands. if you want to check it out it’s a quick guide that outlines what to look for in an eco aware label. But in the process of making that post I also realized that we don’t all have the time to go searching for the perfect brand, and with limited time and finances, and an overwhelming amount of options fighting for your attention, it can be difficult to prioritize sustainability.
Best Eco Friendly Skincare Brands
There are more and more sustainable skin care brands starting all the time and it’s a really inspiring industry to support. This post is a list of some of my favorite sustainable skincare brands. Natural ingredients, ethical production and core sustainable values. They are all small scale businesses, offering cruelty-free products, eco-friendly packaging, and the best part is you can order any of them right now.
Eco Friendly Cleansers
A lot of the products that we use on our skin every day like harsh exfoliants, soaps and makeup removers remove our skins natural oils. These sort of cleansers remove the natural oil in your skin, leaving your face dry and unprotected or causing your skin to overproduce oil in compensation. Kinvara Skincare offers skincare products that are made with natural oils that protect your skin. Clean oils that remove dirt and makeup without damaging your skin, they also offer serums, moisturizers and hand and body cream.
Sustainable Skincare Brands US
Return To Eden Cosmetics is natural skincare line with a focus on ayurvedic medicine. I had the opportunity to collaborate with them last spring and I can speak first hand about the products. Their face creams and sunscreens feel amazing on your skin and are moisturizing without being oily. Everything came in recyclable paper packaging, with a personal handwritten note, which I always take as a sign that the owners are directly involved in the business.
Somethin Special Scents offer handcrafted body care products and perfumes. Everything is cruelty-free, vegan and eco-friendly. They offer an extensive range of scents and perfumes, all made with natural ingredients. Shipping is free of charge inside of the US, and they ship internationally as well and keep their packaging to a minimal.
Environmentally Friendly Skincare
Booda Organics offers non-GMO body butters and bar soaps. Handmade and food-grade organic. Lip balms, deodorants and laundry soap. Impeccable values, quality products and a lot less wasteful packaging.
Sustainable Skincare Brand UK
Living Naturally is an eco-aware soap company based out of the UK. They offer plant-based body products and soaps. Sustainable ethicals are central to their philosophy and everything is palm oil free, sustainably sourced and compostable.
The brand is most famous for their soapnuts: a practical solution to making your home more eco-friendly a ‘soapnut’ is an actual fruit shell filled with natual soap. It’s a bio degradable alternative to soaps and laundry detergents, and are chemical-free and compostable. Besides their signature soapnuts they also offer shampoos, skincare products and natural stain removers.

Low Impact Sustainable Skincare
My other suggestion is to shop locally. It’s is one of the simplest and most sustainable ways to go and small scale brand generally have a higher standard of ethics. Local shops aren’t going to be wasting as much energy on transportation and generally have cleaner simpler ingredient lists.
Living a Sustainable Lifestyle
So I hope you guys found the post useful and enjoyed the brand features. Please leave a comment if you have anything to add or would like to see more product recommendation posts. Again there’s no right or wrong but these brands are a lot more sustainability aware than what you’ll find in a more generic market and it’s worth making the shift. The best thing we can do is to share the best products that are working for us and focus on inspiring and supporting each other.
