In honor of April being Earth Month and a celebration of all things eco-friendly, I wanted to compile a list of our top four green beauty brands. Although we all love our MAC, Bobbi Brown and NARS, it’s always a good idea to search for healthier and more environmentally friendly makeup and beauty options. From sustainable packaging to organic ingredients, these green beauty brands go the distance to produce high quality makeup and beauty products that are eco-conscious and good for the skin and body.
Josie Maran Cosmetics are the creation of a former beauty and fashion model Josie Maran. Frustrated with the lack of organic and natural makeup alternatives on the market, she created her own cosmetic line that caters to the eco-friendly set. What’s amazing about this line is that all of her products are high performance. In the past, green or all-natural beauty products did not give the quality results of their mass market competitors leaving customers apprehensive about future purchases. Josie Maran Cosmetics is a fully comprehensive line that doesn’t contain harsh chemicals and toxins. Her packaging is made from 100% recycled materials including glass, paper, aluminim and plastic.
The Body Deli is a revolutionary bath and body company known for it’s fresh approach to beauty. Unlike traditional beauty brands, The Body Deli creates all of their products utilizing actual fruit and vegetable enzymes and pulp along with antioxidants and natural oils. Known for their delicious hair concoctions and body oils, this progressive brand doesn’t produce anything that contains harsh ingredients including parabens and other synthetics that are toxic to the environment and our bodies.
Priti NYC is an organic nail polish brand that has made major headway in the beauty industry. Launched by Kim D’Amato, the organic nail collection is free of all the typical toxic ingredients which make traditional nail polish formulas highly undesirable. Created for the fashion forward set, the shades and finishes are all crafted to work with the current runway looks and beauty trends of the seasons. The polishes are highly pigmented and long-lasting.
Jane Carter Solutions is an all-natural curly hair care brand created by a woman of color for those with natural hair who didn’t want to subject their curls to damaging chemicals. Known for astounding results, the Jane Carter Solutions brands is a fully comprehensive collection with shampoos, conditioners, deep treatments and other styling products for those who seek a luxury green hair care experience.
