Does the term “sustainable beauty” sound familiar to you? Yes, you might’ve heard about it plenty of times as many beauty brands are describing their products as sustainably-made, which can be through the use of sustainable ingredients or eco-friendly packaging. As sustainability is changing the fashion and cosmetics industry, consumers are becoming conscious about sustainability and given an opportunity to think about what kind of products to consume and what brands to support.
What is sustainable beauty?
According to a study published by British Beauty Council, over 20,000 beauty shoppers are beginning to demand for more transparency from brands, and expect brands to clarify and be honest about the ingredients they use, values and commitments towards the environment. But what makes a product sustainable? It’s commonly know that if a product uses eco-friendly packaging, natural non-toxic ingredients and cruelty-free, then it can be considered as sustainable! Watch out for these phrases when you shop though – some brands may use these words but in a false and misleading way (also known as greenwashing!)
