Korres is a widely available skincare and makeup brand that only uses biodegradable ingredients, recyclable packaging, and eco-friendly manufacturing practices,for example using a steam generator to heat their facility, rather than electrical heating which may harm the environment.

Only uses natural and organic ingredients with no paragons phthalate, propylene, or glycol mineral oil (which I can hardly pronounce so you know it’s bad.) Also they use no animal ingredients and they use wind energy to manufacture their products. It’s hard for us to choose a favorite product but for new customers we recommend any of the problem-solving masks.
I always walk past Josie Maran products in Sephora and look in awe of the packaging. Luckily for the eco-minded, it is all packaged in recyclable/biodegradable materials, which is great for the planet and your vanity. All of Josie Maran’s products contain argan oil which is super moisturizing. Try out the whipped argan oil face butter for a smooth subtle finish.

Our favorite product is easily the Ro's Argan Body Conditioner.
