The beauty industry has understandably come under great scrutiny in recent times due to the world’s new focus on climate change and a desire for skincare brands, for example, to source more responsibly and sustainably. It’s understandable, right?
Sadly, though, several brands aren’t environmentally friendly, which is a huge concern given the global issue we face on climate change. Thankfully, many brands have emerged championing their sustainable and vegan-friendly products, and ultimately their desire to contribute towards a better planet for us all. We salute them, but they don’t always get the recognition or the publicity they deserve.
So, to help spread their sustainable and vegan message, we thought we’d go through some of the skincare brands doing their bit for the planet.
This brand’s message is that we “should not have to choose between healthy skin and a healthy planet” which is a pretty powerful point to make from the offset, and their products reflect their beliefs too. Known for sourcing the best products, Previse is a big believers in the theory that having healthy skin will lead to living the best life possible. Applying their product is easy too, as you can relax on the sofa, try and earn some jackpot rewards in online blackjack, sip a fine glass of wine, and wait to see the results of a plant-based, carcinogenic free product. Previse is well worth a try, and their message is admirable too.
Magic Organic Apothecary
Formed in 2010, MOA pride themselves on creating products that will enrich and heal both your body and mind. A popular massage oil and skin brightening product is Hello Sunshine Energising Body Oil, which contains muscle relaxants such as marjoram, accompanied by the lovely, relaxing smell of lemongrass. That product alone has no petrochemicals and is entirely vegan and cruelty-free, which is exactly what MOA believes in, and good on them for it.
The creator of Conscious Skincare came up with the idea after hearing numerous stories from family and friends around their struggles with mainstream skincare and suffering from allergic reactions. Subsequently, Conscious Skincare – with their organic products – was born. Only creating small batches of product to make sure all the active ingredients are as fresh as they can be, Conscious Skincare certainly doesn’t waste anything.
Melchior & Balthazar
PETA have labelled Melchior & Balthazar as cruelty-free and vegan, which is a powerful endorsement. The brand’s products are 100% plant-based or from natural origin. They’re all organic too, and crafted using many traditional methods. On top of all of this, their packaging is made from recycled papers. Not only are Melchior & Balthazar creations kind to our world, but they’re kind to our skin too.

Hugely popular among the vegan community, Lani is expected to blow up even further in 2020. With its bright packaging and ethically sourced ingredients, the brand is also a huge supporter of charitable organisations, with Lani donating 5% of their profits in September to a home for rescue animals. If you want to try one of their products for the first time, then we highly recommend Lani’s blue mint facial cleanser.
Some of the best businesses in the world have been formed by friends and Meadow Skincare is no different. After realising, there was a need for prenatal massage clients, two best friends put their heads together and came up with a range of eco-friendly products of the highest standard. Meadow Skincare use plant-based ingredients and pride themselves on providing relaxing and uplighting properties. They also use recyclable packaging.
