Sustainable and clean beauty go hand in hand. How we source ingredients and what ingredients are used both have an impact on us as consumers as well as the planet.
Not only are clean ingredients better for us as it only takes a few seconds for products applied topically to soak into our bloodstream, but when we remove our makeup or wash our skincare off, it finds its way back to mother nature. Clean beauty is so important.
