With concepts like clean, organic, and green products gaining ground, the beauty industry is slowly embracing eco-friendly and ethical manufacturing standards, which also translates to the use of natural ingredients that are genuinely good for your skin.


Beauty sustainability isn’t a term restricted to the way a product is packaged only. It corresponds to the entire process a product goes through, from the point of sourcing and production to its testing and packaging, up to the point it reaches the end customer.

Think about all the single-use packaging options, especially plastic, which contribute to landfills and waste and are detrimental to our environment. It’s time we changed that by investing in sustainable beauty products which are good for us and the planet. Without further ado, here are the best ones to check out.

The olive leaf extract is an organic byproduct which the brand upcycles and converts into a skin-supportive active ingredient.

MOB Beauty is a relatively new tenant in the beauty industry, featuring sustainable and refillable products with simplistic packaging. This Cake Liner is an intense eyeliner formula that is long-lasting and smudge-proof and comes in a repurposed compact casing.
