Let’s Talk About Green Beauty
When I started writing about green beauty in 2006, I had grand ideas of sharing my thoughts on fashion and beauty, but I knew I was meant to do more than that—I wanted to connect with like-minded individuals and be as transparent as possible. Sharing thoughts of kindness and inspiration were my inspiration. For me, beauty was about individuality, wellness, and design. Back then, the options in the green beauty category were harder to find and were not considered as posh as today. It took a while to learn the realities of greenwashing, toxic ingredients in all and everyday products, and the importance of due diligence.
It brings a smile to my face when I think of all the clean beauty available today. Even better, I see big names and major magazines treat it as everyday news, not just as an annual article paying homage to Earth Day. Nature has much splendor to give, and innovators know the right way to package it. There is a certain elegance to opening up a beautifully designed product. If you are ready to make the switch, here are a few of my favorite brands I suggest you reach for right now.
