There’s no denying that people are taking notice of the environmental impact of the products they use – including cosmetics and skincare. But whether you’re just dipping your toes into buying ethically and naturally sourced products or it’s something in which you’re super-versed, you should keep your eyes on these up-and-coming brands that pride themselves on being eco-friendly!
Twelve Beauty was founded by Pedro Catalá, Ph.D., MSC, a pharmacist and cosmetologist with more than 20 years of expertise in plants and herbology. He named his brand after the 12 core plant-based, ethically sourced ingredients – like cupuaçu butter, spent grain wax, and mallow flower extract – used in his products. The ingredients are designed to work for all skin types, especially those that are stressed, sensitive, or allergy-prone.
Blending traditional healing with modern science, VANA Botanicals is an organic skincare line that’s figured out the key to keeping your skin happy. The brand has meticulously formulated its products to eliminate over 2,000 toxic ingredients, and the entire line is cruelty-free, plant-based, and sustainable. There’s no room for synthetic ingredients here!
Rooted in self-care, Malaya Organics knows skincare can be an almost religious experience. The 100% natural, high-performance line features products formulated for all skin types, tones, textures, and concerns. You can find everything from lip balm and facial serum to aromatherapy rollers.
LXMI (pronounced Luxe-Me) has a tagline of “beauty for humanity,” and its products showcase that seamlessly. Its formulas are centered around Nilotica, a rare relative of shea butter the founder happened upon in the markets of Uganda. The brand believes in fair-wage work, making its sustainable products a top choice for skincare lovers everywhere.
