One of the best ways to celebrate the earth is by implementing more sustainable daily habits. While it may sound overwhelming at first, switching to clean beauty products is one of the most concrete changes you can make to improve the environment, and it’s becoming increasingly easier. With the boom of independent and green beauty brands, there are now endless options that appeal to all different preferences.
In the very recent past, clean beauty was often correlated with granola brands and relatively mild results, but now you can find everything from earthy goodness to luxury high-result skin care under the clean umbrella.
In celebration of Earth Day, here are 18 of the buzziest, newest, and most crush-worthy clean beauty goodies for your perusal.
1Hermetica Rosefire Perfume
If you’re a fan of luxury style perfume, then you already know that most high-end fragrances are highly synthetic. Luckily, Hermetica’s clean and alcohol-free offerings make it possible to satisfy both your taste AND your ethics, so you can smell like a champagne lifestyle without filling the ocean with champagne bottles.
2Crop Natural Mascara
If you want dramatic eyes without all of the synthetic goo, Crop Natural has a fantastic formula made of natural oils, wax, and sugar molecules, so you can go clean but also go smokey.
3Saint Jane Beauty Microdose Lip Gloss
Whether it’s in our coffee, booze, candy, or makeup products, CBD is all the rage, and the cruelty-free brand, Saint Jane Beauty, has jumped in on the trend with five luscious shades of CBD-infused lip gloss. Normally it’s frowned upon to eat your lip gloss, but since it’s vegan, clean, and has CBD, licking your lips might not be a bad idea?!
4Wildist Dreamomile Nighttime Natural Toothpaste
This toothpaste combines the classic mint flavor with the goodness of charcoal, and it’s completely clean and recyclable, as with all Wildist products. (Although, the packaging is cute enough you may want to repurpose it.)
