From Farm to Face: Beauty Brands That Are Good For You & the Earth

As beauty editors, our desks are always engulfed in packaging. There are piles of miniature bottles, goodies wrapped in layers of tissue paper, tons of cardboard boxes, along with paper bags and ribbons. While it is all beautiful, the truth is product packaging (including cosmetic products) takes up one-fourth of landfill space.

Another not so great aspect of the beauty world is the untested chemicals in so many products. While the FDA does review color additives that go into our cosmetics, it doesn’t review the other ingredients.

This Earth Day, we’re celebrating the beauty brands that are not only committed to safe products for people, but also committed to ethical production and sustainable consumption for the environment. There may be many options for good skin and hair care, but there is no planet B.
