How to Shop for Ethical Beauty Products

Ethical Beauty Products

More and more people are becoming aware of the importance of ethical beauty. With the technology we have today, animal testing is completely unnecessary. The issue is, many brands still do it. In China, animal testing is mandatory which means any brands that sell in China are still engaging with unethical practices. It’s important to put your money towards causes you believe in, but, finding the best ethical beauty products isn’t always easy.

Knowing what is ethical is a challenge within itself. Animal testing unfortunately isn’t the only issue. You might also want to consider whether products are vegan, organic, natural or palm oil free. You might not always be able to find leading-edge products that tick all the boxes, and that’s okay! Even though you might be one person, doing your best is definitely making an impact.

Being aware is the first step to finding ethical beauty products. A lot of the time, brands will advertise their cruelty-free or ethical status. Otherwise, a quick Google search will typically give you the answer. There are many reputable cruelty-free and vegan lists such as Logical Harmony. If you’re looking for products that are natural or palm-oil free, you might have to dig a little deeper or reach out to the company on your own.

If you’re not sure where to look for good products, there are many people on YouTube, Instagram etc. who exclusively use cruelty-free or ethical products. For instance, Carli Bybel only uses cruelty-free products on her beauty YouTube channel. You can also find many review websites and online shops that also sell ethical brands.

Trying to find ethical products might seem daunting at first. However, the longer you commit to the cause, the more you’ll get a grasp on what brands are or aren’t at your ethical standard. Bahama Brown has strived to ensure all products are cruelty-free, vegan, natural and palm-oil free. Getting a tan shouldn’t have to hurt the planet!
