The cosmetic industry is known for causing a negative impact on the environment. Not only do they drain the world’s natural resources, they contribute to pollution as well. However, there are brands that are leading the way in changing this by making sustainable, eco-friendly products.
Some of them include:
The Korean brand Cosrx focuses on clean beauty products that contain effective ingredients. However, there are certain harmful ingredients that are on their blacklist such as talc, mineral oil, urea, parabens, and more.
2. True Botanicals
True Botanicals products are MADE SAFE® certified which means that they’re guaranteed not to contain any of the 5000 known toxic ingredients. They’re environmental impact is also minimized by the way they develop, produce, package, and ship their products.
