20 Eco-Friendly Beauty Favorites

By michellehorton |

Our skin can absorb over 60% of what we put on it — that goes for moisturizers, foundations, even lipstick.

But do you know what your skin is absorbing?

In celebration of yesterday’s Earth Day, I thought I’d share some of my favorite natural/organic beauty brands that I’ve actually used and loved. (I’ve used my fair share of natural deodorants, shampoos and lipsticks that sadly haven’t cut it.)

More and more beauty brands are taking a healthier, more eco-focused approach to not only their products, but also their manufacturing. Wind-powered factories, Post Consumer recycled packaging, fair trade practices through organic farms, etc.

Take a look at 20 of my favorite eco-friendly beauty brands that are as effective as they are healthy:

20 Eco-Friendly Beauty Brands


Tarte is one of my favorite beauty brands, regardless of the fact that their line features wholesome, natural ingredients. Take their wildly popular cheek stain, for instance, which is a water-based formula with "Skinvigorating" ingredients like a T5 Super Fruit Complex (goji, acai, maracuja, acerola, and pomegranate) and mineral-derived pigments. (No parabens, sulfates, phthalates, or petrochemicals.)
Buy from Sephora
