Top 5 Sustainable Beauty Products

More and more brands in all sectors are investing in sustainable products!

Consumer demand and brand awareness is pushing the beauty sector to be more transparent, both in the products' composition and at a package level.

Anne Bedarf, senior manager of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) believes that "companies are recognizing the long-term benefits such as resiliency, risk reduction, adequacy of supply and brand equity. Environmentally responsible packaging has become a standard practice to incorporate sustainability goals into corporate decision-making,” 

We selected 5 products from companies who are pushing the boundaries of sustainability in the beauty industry.  

Agencies like Think Tank can help you find stylish and eco-friendly solutions for your beauty package.
