It’s safe to say that the eco-friendly “trend” is now, in fact, a staple. Global awareness about the benefits of organic ingredients and environmentally-friendly products continues to rise, just as reports about the dangers of synthetic ingredients and harmful chemicals grow. The beauty industry is definitely one area where eco-friendly products, from locally sourced ingredients to environmentally sound packaging, are becoming the norm. Even big box brands are now offering environmentally conscious options, making organic makeup, all-natural hair care products and back-to-the-basics skincare rituals available to the masses. Who can blame people for wanting to “greenify” their beauty routine when, according to the Organic Consumers Association, the average woman absorbs five pounds of toxic chemicals from their beauty products each year?

There’s no time like the present to make the switch to eco-friendly, all-natural and organic beauty products: Monday, April 22 is Earth Day and we’ve rounded up ten makeup, skincare and haircare options that are safe for you and the planet. Even better, many of our choices are home-grown Canadian brands, making your new purchase even more environmentally sound.

If red flags are raised after looking at the long list of confusing ingredients in your cleanser, toss (or better yet, recycle) that bottle. Instead of risking it with unpronounceable chemicals, try an all-natural wash like Sweet Leaf Bath’s Face Polish, which consists of only familiar ingredients that you could find in your kitchen. Or treat yourself to a summery new selection of mineral-based blush, eyeshadow and bronzer, courtesy Tarte’s colourful new limited edition palette. Even sunscreen gets the all-natural stamp of approval, thanks to Consonant’s chemical-free SPF 30 formula. Ready to see what other organic makeup and eco-friendly hair and skincare options are available? Read on for our full list of Earth Day-approved beauty products.

    I agree. Women need to support hair care and beauty manufacturers that care about the environment, as well as the welfare of their consumers. It is also every consumer’s responsibility to look into the ingredients used in a product before opting to buy it. If more people will be advocating the use of organic and natural ingredients, then I think more manufacturers will be compelled to think about their manufacturing procedure and also ensuring products that are safe to use.

    I’ve written a post about it in my blog, I’d love if you can check that out :)
