Sustainable Beauty Brands

Let’s give some thought to our beauty routine and the products that we use. So many products we use come in plastic packaging and are used for a short time. Then, the plastic packaging goes into a landfill forever.

There are so many sustainable options in the world of beauty and cosmetics, we just need to find them. Here is a list of products that are better for your hair, skin and the environment!



Makeup can be so full of chemicals and our skin absorbs approximately 60% of what we put on it. So, let’s give our skin a fighting chance with sustainable, chemical-free products.

Have a look at sustainable ways to apply your makeup!

  • RMS Beauty

    • RMS Beauty is a sustainable brand that you are more likely to find on the shelf. This company prides itself on creating makeup that works with your skin – skincare with mineral colour, using high quality ingredients in their purest state.
