Clean makeup is a category we’ve long been excited about and understand there’s no single definition of clean, green or safe. It's more what clean means to the individual consumer and how far each person wants to take that commitment. Some brands might define clean by the ingredients used or what is being excluded, also where and how ingredients are sourced is a huge factor for many.
We believe it's extremely important each consumer does their own research based on their out standards. (FYI: The EU and other countries have banned or limited more than 1,600 chemicals from personal care products vs the 11 cosmetic ingredients banned in the United States.) This sort of compliance gives manufactures the authority to craft 'clean' products to their own standards, and market it to their consumers at their own discretion.
We recommend the best products through our own personal research and preference, and advertisers do not influence our picks. We may receive compensation if you visit partners we recommend.
We put together our own personal favorite beauty products and by no means is this a definitive list, but rather a selection of brands we love that follow eco-friendly standards and align with us.
