ethical and sustainable beauty products

As a world traveler with a degree in sustainability–responsible consumerism has been on my mind for a while. I know first hand how time-consuming it is to find products that truly align with your values, so I made this ethical beauty & hygiene starter kit for socially and environmentally conscious souls who also want to reduce their impact on our planet.

All the products in this kit are made of eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and gluten-free ingredients. They come in packaging that is made from recycled materials and/or can be refilled, composted, recycled or TerraCycled. The companies themselves are also working to reduce their environmental and social impact through their supply chain and production processes.

If you are trying to go zero-waste, please check out my zero waste starter kit.
