This year has been nothing short of a head-spin, to say the least. Masking up has become second nature and our skin is still getting used to its new restrictions, and while many aspects of our lives have slowed or come to a complete halt, one thing that hasn’t changed is the beauty industry. 

Clean beauty brands have been churning out lots of new and exciting products over the last few months, and we've loved testing them all. And while there is no cold hard definition by the FDA as to what clean beauty is, we follow certain guidelines to determine what it is to us. Clean beauty is a standard that is surrounded around human health, it's the practice of sustainable ingredient sourcing and transparently creating non-toxic, naturally-derived, and synthetic chemical-free skincare and body care products. Here are the newest (and best) clean beauty products on the market right now.
