One of the things I love about working with Sephora is their dedication to showcasing products that are not only effective, but also good for your skin and the planet. Back in 2021 they launched the Clean + Planet Positive platform, aiming to evolve Clean at Sephora to incorporate sustainability. Brands like Farmacy, Biossance, Saie, and Tata Harper.. All of these brands go above their clean efforts to support sustainability, too!
Today I wanted to showcase three favorite products from Sephora’s Clean and Planet Positive platform.
3 Holy Grail Clean + Sustainable Beauty Favs
What it is: I feel like such a broken record as I talk about this cleansing balm SO much but it truly is pretty epic. It’s won multiple awards and what I love about it is that it melts off all of your makeup (and SPF, dirt, and oil) without stripping the skin (or leaving behind any residue). I tried this four or five years ago and have been an evangelist for the product ever since! It’s definitely holy grail status.
How to use it: I like to take a quarter size dollop and massage it into dry skin. I like to do my face first and then focus on my eyes (it literally melts off makeup!) last so that I’m not accidentally rubbing my eye makeup all over my face. I then add just a little bit of warm water, transforming the balm into a milky lather.
Farmacy’s sustainability mission: Farmacy is on track to have 100% waste-free packaging this year. They’ve made the switch to PCR plastic, glass, and recyclable materials. All of their cartons are made of FSC-certified paper and all packaging ink will utilize soy or vegetable ink. When they switched the cap of our Green Clean to make it 100% recyclable, they reduced our landfill volume by 10.4 tons! Lastly, Farmacy is proud partner of Feeding America—the nation’s largest hunger relief organization. The brand is committing to donating 1.5 million meals in 2021, 3 million meals in 2022, and 6 million meals in 2023.
What it is: This is a newer favorite! I love this eye cream because it is ultra creamy and hydrating (my under eye area gets even dryer than the rest of my face). It’s a natural peptide-powered eye cream designed to target wrinkles, hydration, and puffiness! It’s now available in a refillable container to minimize waste.
How to use it: Morning and night, use your ring finger to dot this cream on under your eyes and around the orbital bone. Remember to gently pat, not rub! I like to apply my eye cream after cleansing/toning (before other creams and serums).
Tata Harper’s sustainability mission: Tata Harper Skincare is partnering with Trees for the Future for two years to plant 100,000 trees, revitalize 100 acres, sequester 3,616 tons of carbon, and plant 1,000 people out of poverty.
What it is: This is the best bronzer ever. I’ve featured it multiple times here and it’s my absolute favorite. It glides on so easily (I highly recommend the brush too!) with a natural, easy sun-kissed glow. It’s buildable and gives the most natural bronze. It’s also got good for skin ingredients. Colloidal oatmeal soothes, smooths, and hydrates. Grapeseed oil contains antioxidants and vitamin E to hydrate and nurture the skin. Elderberry extract balances the skin’s microbiome and is high in vitamin A.
How to use it: Using the brush, apply all over your face for an easy sun-kissed glow.
Saie’s sustainability mission: Saie uses ethically sourced ingredients, recyclable components, and their cartons are made from 100% FSC recycled paper in a carbon-neutral facility. They are also a certified ‘Climate Neutral’ brand, offsetting Carbon footprint by investing in climate change initiatives. Their goal is to become carbon-neutral by 2023
