Our selection of best sustainable Makeup brands

Why is it important to choose best sustainable Makeup brands?
In the world of cosmetics, there are many aspects that can damage our planet. First, the ingredients used and their origin. Many raw materials come from oil extraction. And many of them contain plastic polymers that are not easily biodegradable. Glitter for example cannot be filtered by sewage treatment plants and end up in the sea, where it will be ingested by animals. Many brands will use palm oil which causes deforestation when not harvested sustainably. Also, many make-up brands test their products on animals. The packaging is also an important factor. It is unlikely to be recycled and will probably end up in landfill.

What can we do?
You don’t have to stop wearing makeup to help the environment. Just do some research first, and find out the environmental policy of each brand, from the ingredients they use to the packaging. Make sure raw materials are natural and extracted sustainably without creating deforestation. Also make sure the products are not tested on animals  and are cruelty-free. Finally, check that the packaging is made of eco-friendly materials and is compostable or at least easily recyclable. And remember to use reusable pads when removing your makeup!
