For some, shopping for beauty products is a necessity. For others, it’s a luxury. Meant to keep our skin clear, teeth white, hair soft and lips plump, there are endless options available. But to feel even more dazzling, support beauty brands that also give back. You’ll look good, feel good and do good – the trifecta!
To narrow it down for you, we’ve identified some amazing beauty brands that are also doing their part to spread kindness around the globe.
- Seed Phytonutrients is an animal testing free, vegan and eco-friendly brand that partners with independent organic farmers in America to create high-quality hair, face and body products. The brand recently launched a Limited-Edition American Farmland Trust Body Moisturizer -- a great way to keep your skin from getting dry while supporting local growers and communities.
- Vegamour preaches inner beauty and strength with its clean beauty products. In partnership with its sister company, Southern Botanica, Vegamour provides over 5,000 Fair Trade jobs to women in northern Namibia each year. With plans to provide jobs to 20,000 women by 2020, the brands are launching a “fund a tree planting program” to help grow 30,000 mango trees in drought-stricken communities without access to fresh fruit.
- Looking to add a perfume to your collection? The innovative and hypoallergenic fragrance brand Skylar works to celebrate body positivity and inspire confidence among females. To support its mission, Skylar donates a portion of its profits to Step Up, an organization that provides mentorship to underprivileged high school girls across the country with after-school care and career guidance.
- Lipstick is a fun way to add a pop of color to your wardrobe, but your smile will turn even brighter with the amazing lipsticks from Color the World. Founded with the mission to improve people’s lives through the expression of color and by giving back to people in need, 10 percent of every Color the World purchase goes to supporting causes around the world.
