July 15th is National Clean Beauty Day to commemorate the importance of sustainability in the beauty industry. It celebrates and encourages brands to develop clean and sustainable products, and it also informs consumers about clean beauty to help them make ethical choices when buying new products.
Sustainability is a relevant issue to the beauty industry, as the industry generates an average of 120 billion units of packaging annually. It is also the top contributor to plastic waste. In the past, clean beauty has only focused on product formulas and their ingredients, but the industry must start to create sustainable products that do not have such a devastating carbon footprint. As consumers start to demand more environmentally friendly products, the beauty industry, consumers, and the environment will begin to see the benefits of sustainable consumption and production.
To help you find some sustainable product alternatives, we put together this list of clean beauty brands (and products) we love in celebration of National Clean Beauty Day.
