Five Green Skincare Lines to Check Out
The world of green beauty can be so overwhelming—how do you know which brands are effective and trustworthy? After much research, here’s a list of 5 innovative lines to try out!
luxurious, combines organic ingredients with traditional skincare technology
Juice Beauty was created in 2005 by Karen Behnke. The mission is to create organic and natural formulations that perform just as well as conventional beauty products and still offer the luxurious experience associated with skincare. Their products are created with certified organic ingredients and omit all potentially harmful endocrine-disrupting ingredients. Their corporate headquarters use all sustainable and re-used materials and they have a long-term partnerships with Breast Cancer Prevention partners as well as the Environmental Working Group. The products that they're most famous for are those associated with anti-aging benefits.
nontoxic, targets specific skin issues
What's the difference between natural and non-toxic? True Botanicals prides themselves on using nontoxic (certified by MADE SAFE™), high-quality ingredients. Their products are created with a base of botanical extracts that contain high levels of antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids, and then are modified with additional nontoxic ingredients to combat specific skin issues such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. I really love that they use essential oils for fragrance and that they have an ingredient glossary so you know exactly what your products are made of.
handcrafted, highlights use of botanicals
Sky Organics products are handcrafted in small batches and only use organic ingredients sourced from highly reputable, artisanal farms. They use natural, organic, botanicals and the majority of their products straightforward in composition, typically using a blend of thoughtfully sourced oils and said botanicals.
Rosemira Organics was started nine years ago by Mira. She holds degrees in chiropractic and acupuncture, as well as additional credentials in herbal medicine, nutrition, and deep-tissue massage. Rosemira Organics approaches skincare holistically with a strong understanding of herbalism. Their products are unique and carefully executed for different needs--using a variety of ingredients instead of one common base. Mira uses her 30+ years of experience in the field to guide her product development and it very obviously shows in the quality and diversity of her products.
S.W. Basics is a brand that emphasizes simplicity, sustainability, and individuality. Their products are minimalistic and contain only five or fewer all-natural ingredients. Their products are super simple, and the selection is relatively limited, but if you're just getting into the world of natural beauty, S.W. Basics is the way to go.
