For us, sunscreen is not a nice to have, it’s an essential body care product (especially since we tend to live in sun baked Australia most of the time). But, as with most consumer products in this space, we’ve struggled to find truly sustainable alternatives. Just about every drug store option that I’ve seen is either far from eco-friendly and / or unhealthy….
Green Beaver was founded in Toronto in 2001 by husband and wife (and young scientists) team, Karen and Alain. All of their products are completely cruelty-free, organic and palm oil free. They also support a number of social and environmental initiatives and projects and their packaging is made of post-consumer recycled material and is always recyclable.
Founded in California in 2013 by Elysse Crabtree, Wabi Sabi Botanicals is the first beauty brand to provide Kiva micro-loans for women in developing nations. Their products are completely cruelty-free, vegan friendly and palm oil free. They’re also formulated with wild-harvested and ethically sourced ingredients from parts of South America and Africa. Their packaging is made of partially or entirely post-consumer recycled material – and is always recyclable
On the hunt for products that do good for your locks and good for your planet? We’re always on the lookout for cruelty-free and vegan shampoo and conditioners that do an amazing job and meet our criteria for sustainable beauty. If this is your first time visiting, our approach to sustainable beauty is to look for brands and products that are vegan, cruelty-free, organic / natural, palm oil free, have ethical ingredient sourcing policies and use thoughtful packaging (which is at the very least recyclable). While we can’t always get every box ticked in every product, this list prioritises shampoo and conditioner that are VEGAN and CRUELTY FREE. We hope this is a helpful resource for you!

We’ve been struggling for years to find truly ethical and sustainable beauty and personal care products. Many of you will know that it can take hours of research, trawling through mountains of contradictory information. We wanted to create a place that lays out all the key issues, defines what sustainable and ethical actually is and provides some guidelines on what to look for. So here it is! We hope that it helps save you time and energy for other important things!
