What is Clean Beauty?
In case, you’re wondering: Why clean beauty? Here’s the answer to that –
While there is no set definition to clean beauty, it refers to beauty and skincare products curated with clean ingredients. This means using natural ingredients and chemicals that are deemed safe for consumer use and for the environment as well.
In easier words, it means products that are mindfully created and are free of harmful chemicals or possibly dangerous ingredients. It is a wonderful feeling to receive useful presents, but it’s the thought behind them that makes them more special.
How To Tell If a Beauty Product Is Truly Clean?
With no set standards or certifications for clean beauty products, we easily become prey to greenwashing and false claims.
To make certain that this doesn’t happen to you, here are a few steps you can take.
- Read the label – Reading the ingredient list is one way to find out how good a product is. Avoid harmful ingredients that are not good for you or the planet. You can check out our articles on ingredients to avoid and good ingredients to include in your clean beauty products.
- Do your research – You will find most information on the brand’s official website. This will include proper product formulations, manufacturing practices, and certifications. To ensure authenticity, look for brands that are B-Corp certified, cruelty-free, organic certified, and also ones that follow fair trade practices.
- Opt for planet-friendly packaging options – Other than what goes in your cosmetics, also make sure the outer packaging is either refillable, plastic-free, reusable, or compostable. Eco-friendly packaging, or no packaging, is another good practice that has been embraced by many clean beauty brands to minimize the waste generated by the industry.
With holiday shopping lurching closer, we hope we have given you a little bit of extra inspiration and a new way of looking at the quest for clean beauty gifts.
Yes, some of the suggested gifts might be on the pricey side. But once your loved ones open them up, they will realize how special they are, and appreciate them even more. After all, it is the most thought-out gift that always remains special in our memories.
