Summer is in full swing and there’s no better time to celebrate the clean beauty movement! These products are mindfully created, produced with conscious ingredients, sustainably and ethically sourced, and of course, made with the safety of humans and the environment in mind. As people grow more concerned about ingredients in health & beauty products, the clean beauty movement has shined a light on great formulas without the compromise. We’re rounding up some of our favorite new clean beauty products to incorporate into your routine.
Makeup & Tools
When it comes to makeup, there’s a larger trend moving towards formulas and makeup tools going vegan. Zoeva is a great example of this trend. They’re known for their high quality makeup brushes and have recently created synthetic, vegan alternatives to their iconic brushes. Their 102 Silk Finish Makeup Brush is multitasking foundation brush that gives you a flawless application. It’s made from pure synthetic hair and guarantees a streak-free, natural -looking makeup finish.
A pro-tip for summer beauty is to keep your look as light as possible. That’s why tinted lip balms are a great finishing touch to pull your entire look together. We love this Sky Organics Tinted Lip Balm Pack. They’re cruelty-free and made with NON-GMO ingredients like beeswax, moisturizing coconut oil, and refreshing essential oils. They deeply nourish dry lips, while adding a sheer wash of color and shine. This is the perfect item to always have in your bag this summer!
Skincare has seen the biggest boom within the clean beauty movement. New brands are emerging that are dedicated to creating products that have powerful, natural ingredients. Natural skincare brand NÁU developed their collection around the benefits that nature can have on our skin, and are committed to using innovative methods to harness its most potent, active ingredients. Their Extra-Care Body Lotion has become a fan-favorite for its deeply nourishing effect thanks to a formula infused with Forest Mallow Extract, Kokum Butter and Evening Primrose Oil.
Another brand that’s committed to clean formulas is Antipodes. They’re a Scientific Green Beauty™️ company from New Zealand that uses pollution-free, results-driven native New Zealand ingredients in its award-winning plant-powered vegan beauty™️ and certified organic premium skincare range. One of their bestselling products for summer is the lightweight Baptise H2O Ultra-Hydrating Water Gel. It’s deeply thirst-quenching without heaviness or oiliness, is easily absorbed and is able to powerfully hydrate skin.
We can’t forget about the guys! We’re loving this travel haircare set from Johnny’s Chop Shop—it’s great for that upcoming vacay and all the products are cruelty-free, eco-friendly and vegan. The kit comes with shampoo, a strong hold styling clay and a texturizing salt spray that’s suitable for all hair types. For skincare, Sky Organics just launched a men’s line featuring cruelty-free formulas, organic ingredients and no-nasties. The collection includes face wash, beard balm, exfoliating scrub and beard oil. These are also great for all skin types and are free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, silicones and mineral oil. This collection gives you everything you want, and nothing you don’t.
