SUSTAINABLE & ETHICAL BEAUTY BRANDS: THE MASTER LIST

*This post contains affilate links


Ah, the master-list…

Over the last few years we’ve kept a running tally of the most sustainable skincare and eco friendly beauty brands. That is, according to our specific sustainable and ethical beauty criteria – which you can read all about at the bottom of the list.

Now we’ve taken to time to to compile all these gems in one convenient location. One list (not ring) to rule them all, so to speak.

We’re adding to this list all the time but if there’s a specific type of product that you can’t find any good options for – let us know and we’ll see if we can source some sustainable gems for you. And if there’s an ethical beauty brand which you know should make the cut according to our criteria, let us know in the comments.

We hope this is a helpful resource for choosing brands and products that are the best for you, animals and the environment. 

Oh and just so you know what the color next to each criteria means –  see below. 

Navigating The Best Sustainable Beauty Brands

Finding Eco Friendly Beauty Brands

So how do we find the best sustainable and eco friendly beauty brands? Well, we’re glad you asked!

We use our sustainable personal care criteria as a guide.

For new readers, that means we look for brands and products that are:

Yup, it takes us quite a bit of time to find these eco friendly makeup and skin care brands that meet all (or most) of our criteria. And if you’ve read some of our other sustainable ethical beauty brand guides, you’ll notice some of our brand favorites who will undoubtedly be making another appearance here because they’re great.

It’s also important to know that we are not a certification body nor are we auditors. We have taken the approach that trusts the brand in question to tell us the truth and assume the most important metric is progress and awareness, not perfection.

If you know that any of the ethical claims below are not true, please let us know in the comments below. 


FINAL THOUGHTS ON SUSTAINABLE AND ETHICAL BEAUTY

Beauty should always be ethical and sustainable. But it’s often not so black and white.

While the increased demand for eco friendly beauty products is a great shift towards conscious consumerism it comes with its own pitfalls – discerning legitimate brands from greenwashing.

So feel free to refer to this list in support of brands that are doing better for you, our animal friends and the environment. And remember to let us know in the comments below if there are any sustainable gems that we should add to this list.
