Clean up your beauty routine with these clean-ingredient products

They say you are what you eat, which is probably one reason you follow a plant-forward lifestyle. But, considering that skin is the human body’s largest organ and it’s quite porous (which means it absorbs whatever you put on it), doesn’t it also stand to reason that you are also whatever products you slather on each day? Yes, your skin is literally ingesting your externally applied lotions, serums and cleansers.

Unfortunately, many beauty products are teeming with toxic ingredients that are hazardous to your health as well as being harmful to the environment and wildlife. In fact, according to the Environmental Working Group, the average woman applies 168 chemicals to her body each day by using 12 personal care products. Yikes!

It’s time to clean up your skincare routine to better align with your other healthy habits, so we’ve rounded up our favorite eco-friendly options with clean ingredients. Every brand featured here is plant-based and vegan and/or cruelty-free — some even use sustainable packaging to further help our planet.
