Conscientious Cosmetics: 3 Brands To Check Out

Conscientious Cosmetics: 3 Brands To Check Out

There’s nothing better than the feeling of giving back and helping others, closely followed by going out and making a bunch of awesome beauty purchases.  I’m going to help make your next beauty purchases feel extra special by pointing out some conscientious beauty brands that give back. 

Honest Beauty

If you haven’t heard of Honest Beauty yet, you need to.  Honest Beauty is an extension of The Honest Company, co-founded by Jessica Alba. They focus on creating good-for-you cosmetics and skincare items. Their items are free of parabens, paraffins, silicones, talc, petrolatum, mineral oils and synthetic fragrances and their products are never tested on animals.

Honest Beauty is also a supporter of Code.org, "a non-profit dedicated to exposing all students to computer science".

Lush

As if you needed another reason to go to Lush, right? Well, next time while you’re there stocking up on bath bombs and massage bars, make sure to pick up their Charity Pot Body Lotion , as 100% of the proceeds go towards grassroots organizations working towards environmental conservation, animal welfare and human rights.

The lotion features fair trade shea butter, cocoa butter and olive oil. And that's not all they do.

Yes To

Yes To has some really stellar beauty products, my favorite being the Yes to Grapefruit Pore Perfection Toning Mist, which I have given a shout-out to before.

This company has a 95% natural ingredient standard, their products are free of parabens, chemical sunscreens and other potentially harmful ingredients and they are cruelty-free. A portion of their company profits go towards the Yes To Seed Fund, which helps to empower and promote women in leading positive and healthy lives.

If you know of any other worthwhile conscientious beauty brands, I’d love to know more! Tag us on Twitter and Instagram @lovelierie and let’s chat about them.
