Earth Day 2019: Eco-friendly beauty picks

Happy Earth Day! We love our planet and to celebrate, we've put together a list of our top beauty picks that are kind to your skin, your bank balance and our beautiful Earth.

Last updated:

In the past, beauty products, skin care and makeup meant harsh chemicals, artificial colours, animal testing and tons of unnecessary plastic waste.

But now, thanks to an ever-growing understanding and awareness of how our actions affect our planet, more and more brands are moving away from harsh chemicals and unnecessary waste and towards natural, organic ingredients and low-impact packaging.

If you’re looking to celebrate this Earth Day with some eco-friendly beauty buys, then we’ve got just the things for you. Shop our top picks below and be kind to yourself as well as Mother Nature!

What can I do to make my beauty regime more eco-friendly?

It’s great that you want to make your daily beauty routine and shopping habits more eco-friendly. Here are a few ways to get started:

  1. Look for organic products: If a product is listed as organic then it means it conforms to several environmental standards and is made from organically farmed ingredients.
  2. Buy in bulk: If you know you love a certain shampoo, then why not buy one big bottle instead of several smaller ones? It will use less plastic and probably save you some pennies in the long run too.
  3. Skip the chemicals: Look at the ingredients of your beauty products and see how many words you can pronounce! Using products with ingredients that you recognise rather than complicated chemicals probably means they’re more natural and less harmful to the environment.
  4. Protect the animals: If you can, try to avoid products that are tested on animals. High street beauty retailer Lush is famous for its anti-animal testing stance and retailers like Superdrug are starting to launch their own eco-friendly lines that are against animal testing too.
  5. Coconut oil: Ethically sourced coconut oil can replace so many parts of your beauty regime. It can be used as a moisturiser, a cleanser, a hair mask and you can even cook with it! If you’re looking to make your beauty routine more natural, then coconut oil is a great place to start. You can check out our full coconut oil guide here.
