All-natural eyeshadow ensures that you can play with makeup without feeling concerned about the ingredients. It’s a perfect choice for sensitive skin, or any skin really; after all, eyeshadow is one of the cosmetics that’s applied closest to your eyes, so we want to be sure there’s no toxins around. All-natural eyeshadow doesn’t mean you need to skimp on color choices or quality, either. In fact, when brands are interested in ethical, eco-friendly ingredients and processes, the condition of the product only rises. So whether you’re going for a natural smokey eye (like Lily Lolo’s mineral eyeshadow palette) or looking for a cool-toned palette (like Well People’s collection), there are plenty of perfect choices within the world of clean beauty.Talc-Free Eyeshadow Talc is one of the most important ingredients to avoid in eyeshadow formulas. Talc has a high contamination rate with asbestos fibers, which causes it to be toxic when inhaled. Asbestos being a mineral usually found in close proximity to talc. Even without this contamination, though, talc is still a toxic risk on its own. The eyeshadows curated here are all talc-free and vetted for non-toxicity, so you can be sure you’re avoiding the right ingredients. Refillable Eyeshadow Palettes These unique palettes offer a low-waste approach to beauty. Ere Perez’s eyeshadow palette features a magnetic case so you can easily slip new pans into the compact when you need to replace one.

These companies understand that many of our daily choices hinge on convenience. So, to make someone’s habits more sustainable, they’ll need to make it more convenient to do so. Choosing to buy plastic disposable water bottles is no different. We only do it because it’s easy. But now, it’s time to change. With a reusable water bottle, it’s simple to choose the sustainable option and you’ll no longer need to rely on single-use plastic. With eco-friendly habits, small decisions add up. We can all do our part to reduce plastic use, and finding a reusable water bottle that suits you is a great place to start. You don’t need to sacrifice style or aesthetic if you want to go green.

They tend to be the best hiking water bottles, for instance, and many - including us - have been known to take them on the trail. For an alternative though, discover elegant options like a glass water bottle with a bamboo lid, silicone water bottle sleeves, an updated steel drinking carafe, and more. Support water bottle companies that give back to make your purchase go even further.

A purchase of Yuhme’s water bottle, created from sugarcane bioplastic, provides at least three months of clean water through their collaboration with Water for Good.

The oh-so-important sunscreen. Even skincare aficionados can line up an impressive regime of cleansers, toners, exfoliators, and moisturizers while forgetting how important an effective sunscreen is for the daily health of your skin. No matter the season - and cloudy days included - the right sunscreen is a must-have addition to your routine. The problem is, if you begin any amount of research into the safety of common sunscreen ingredients, there’s a good chance you’ll be hit with a myriad of seemingly misleading or just confusing information. That’s partly because sunscreen is regulated depending on your country. For instance in Europe, they proposed regulations on certain chemicals that have very little, if any, regulation in the US. Chemicals such as oxybenzone, octinoxate, octisalate - which are known to absorb into the body - are known to be safe only in tiny concentrations; much smaller amounts than what many American sunscreen formulas use. In other words, the information you may be seeing is confusing because it differs depending on where you’re looking. So what is there to do? We can start with what we know. Through scientific study it is known that titanium dioxide and zinc oxide do not penetrate layers of the skin which makes toxicity and absorption highly unlikely. The only time you would be at risk would be when using a spray sunscreen, as this is the only point you would be inhaling these minerals. Therefore, when looking for sunscreen, opt for a lotion, cream, or stick, with the active mineral ingredients zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. This way, you’ll be minimizing absorption of chemicals while using the most effective formulas for sun protection.For us, priorities such as vegan ingredients, ethical sourcing, and biodegradable packaging, along with non-toxicity, are at the forefront of our research when we vet products for you. The brands we feature here are doing a great job creating clean formulas to protect your skin, and we’ve found the best ones to ensure you healthy skin all year round.Looking for a good body moisturizer? Check out our collection of vegan lotions where you’ll find our favorite choices for cruelty-free, hydrating, and luxurious creams.

An essential step in any makeup routine is lip color. Whether you like just a swipe of tinted balm or a full-on lined and lipsticked pout, you’re going to need the best product to fit your requirements. While it’s easy to fall into the trap of popping down to the drugstore and picking up something you like the color of, we think lip color needs a little more consideration than taking home what first caught your eye in the makeup aisle. We like to look a little closer - alright a lot closer - and regard the packaging, the ingredients, and company ethos. Sound a little tedious? Don’t worry, we’ve already done the research into sustainable alternatives for you. You can skip right on to the discovery step and choose your new favorite lip color with the knowledge that the clean beauty products curated here meet strict standards for sustainability and eco-friendliness. Or, if you want a little more of an in-depth look, keep reading.Packaging We love low- and zero-waste beauty products. The idea that you can purchase something designed not to end up in a landfill at the end of its lifespan is a powerful one for an industry that makes up a significant amount of household waste. That’s why it’s important to consider the packaging of your makeup before you make a purchasing decision. At the very least, packaging should be recyclable, but we don’t think it should stop there. Many beauty brands feel the same way and are featuring refillable makeup and biodegradable packaging such as bamboo. Ingredients The natural world provides the best ingredients with which to base skincare and makeup products. Moisturizing oil and butters, fresh scents, vegan color; each is already present within nature and able to be harvested if we do it with care and conscience. Instead of chemicals and artificial colors and fragrances, the brands we’ve curated focus on these natural and sustainable ingredients to make their products the best they can be. Discover the best organic lipsticks and vegan lipsticks below.Multi-Tasking Products Lip and cheek tints and multi-use color sticks are amazing for lots of reasons. First of all, it’s easy to create a pulled-together look when you use the same color to tint your lips, cheeks, and even eyelids - if you’re feeling like a serious pop of color. Second, instead of three different products, it significantly cuts down on packaging waste and general consumption to purchase one multitasking product. We’ve featured some of our favorites below, so be sure to check them out if you’re interested in simplifying your routine while still keeping a polished look.

Undeniably, the silhouette of leather has always been a fundamental influence in fashion. Although it has become a symbol of luxury, the processes behind leather materials can include harsh conditions for our planet and for animals. With existing alternative practices, we have the proper tools to create beautiful choices with a greater intention. Here is our curated list of vegan bags and purses all sustainably sourced and chosen for you.Better For You and For Our Environment Wear your values with ethically made products made by some of our favorite brands. Hozen is a wonderful vegan accessory brand that offers dynamic colors of vegan cross body bags.

If you are a chic minimalist looking for an accessory essential, Moénn’s take on the brown tote bag is a sustainable choice that is long lasting and cruelty free. With warmth in the air, their pieces are beautiful options for Summer handbags.How It’s Made It's important to avoid vegan leather that is created with polyvinyl chloride, as these microplastic materials can be highly toxic. So we’ve included products that are materialized with biodegradable resources that divert from such consequences. One high-quality vegan alternative for leather is polyurethane, a biodegradable solution that significantly reduces our carbon footprints. The HFS Collective is another brand that actively includes post-industrial recycled polyester and post-consumer recycled plastic bottles into their production techniques, which also reduces plastic waste. Choosing vegan bags over leather is an amazing way to practice environmental mindfulness. And you’ll look great doing so. With evolving practices and the encouragement of sustainability, it's never been easier to find upcycled and cruelty-free accessories. Looking for the dress to go with your perfect bag?

The traditional kitchen produces most of the waste within our households. Single-use plastic, food waste, and general refuse always seems to accumulate into a disorganized kitchen setting. But never fear! There is a way to move past these habits and all it takes are some mindful decisions on what items to transition into using. With our hand-picked guide of sustainable kitchen products, you can build a kitchen pantry that helps the planet instead of one that contributes needlessly to your carbon footprint. Reduce Consumption There are so many great ways to incorporate reusable products for your pantry, and the first place to begin is with eco-friendly food storage. Glass jars are perfect to have on hand and make for amazing containers to store pasta, cereal, rice, and your favorite snacks. When you need to reseal food, instead of turning to plastic baggies check out something a little more durable and a lot more sustainable: reusable food wraps constructed from bee’s wax. These make for a clean, fun, and innovative alternative to disposable plastic. A Well-Rounded Sustainable Kitchen There are multiple values to prioritize when shopping for your kitchen. We know there can be a lot to think about, especially when the pressure is on to choose the right items that will serve you and your family. For instance, it can feel difficult to eliminate plastic from your life completely, but it’s easy to start by introducing recyclable garbage bags made from post-consumer materials and bamboo straws into your kitchen essentials. It’s an easy transition that will significantly help reduce your carbon footprint. Another priority is non-toxic utensils. The best kitchen utensils are the ones that are safe and created with eco-friendly materials.Check out the wooden fruit bowl or salt and pepper set for some great examples.

The Perfect Kids Bedroom When it comes to building a sustainable bedroom for your little one, we want to make sure you have a variety of non-toxic kids furniture to choose from. It’s important for a child to have a space they can call their own – one that allows them to explore, express and expand their interests. After all, a child’s bedroom is their world of comfort and safety. A Kingdom of Growth Allowing a child to exercise their curiosity definitely helps stimulation. A natural wood desk is a fundamental area where a child can practice writing, reading and creating. The Art Corner Set by Goodee World is an amazing eco-friendly gift for kids who love to learn and explore. Ready, Set, Play Incorporating fun rugs or non-toxic kids toys into your little one’s bedroom is another great addition to their play time and to their cognitive and emotional development. Playtime also offers an opportunity for both parent and child to spend time together and build a greater sense of connection. Gadgets and Gizmos a Plenty There comes a time when a child challenges their autonomy and strives to be a little bit more independent. Perhaps they explore their idea of self-reliance by choosing their own outfits or cleaning up after themselves – or at least trying to. A kids wardrobe closet can be useful for both a kids playroom storage space and a chance for your child to practice organization. On that note, a wall clock for the kids room may even take that to the next step by introducing time management. A child’s bedroom is a sanctuary for growth and creativity. Our selection of ethically sourced pieces are perfect options for a positive environment.

Sleepwear is something easy to skimp on. At the end of a long day, throwing on an old band tee and some mix-matched flannel pants or lounge shorts feels good enough to be ready for bed. But seeing as we spend 1/3 of our lives sleeping, we should really reconsider what we sleep in. We think you deserve something better. Something that’s healthy and clean for you, ethical, and kind for the planet. To that end, we sought out the soft comfy pajamas of your dreams.Organic Cotton Sleepwear Natural fibers and organic fabrics over polyester or plastic materials are well worth it for all your clothes, but sleepwear in particular, seeing as we’re meant to be as comfortable as possible while sleeping.

Add an organic cotton robe if you feel the need for a little cover-up or extra warmth and enjoy the natural textures and values of each piece’s fabric. Slow fashion has something to teach everyone about how we should be treating our clothes and bodies. What we wear has the power to be a mindful and personal experience if we just let it.

Jeans are one of the most important closet staples. But what should your priorities be when buying a pair? Besides style, of course. At GoodStuff we like to consider certain aspects like where the natural denim was sourced, who made the jeans, and how they were manufactured. We find all this out through our strict system of research and vetting before handing over the discovery part to you. When you check out these selections, know that each is well worth adding to your everyday wear.Jean Material Originally developed to stand up to the cowboy lifestyle, denim was designed to be reliable and long-lasting. Good jean material can be both ultra-durable and age with a grace unlike any other piece of clothing.Slim-Fit Jeans In this era, there's not many pieces that remain at the forefront of fashion quite like the ever-so-versatile skinny jean. Its sleek silhouette promises a tenacity as one of the most popular jean cuts. So does its insistence on showing up in so many places as the pant of choice for many icons. If you too like a polished fit, check out the skinny jeans featured here to find some that are ethically made and sustainable.A Wardrobe Essential Even thought these pieces are popular, a pair of jeans is inherently meant to be an individual, unique to each person. Every detail, from a tapered leg to pocket embroidery, is meant to be just what the wearer needs. This mindset is a continuation of the mindful consumption we advocate at GoodStuff. Slow fashion and slow, mindful purchasing ensures that what we buy, we buy for a reason. Not because we want something for a minute, but because we need it for a while. When we feel a resonance with a piece of clothing, we can begin to think about this mindset in other aspects of our lifestyle. These are the building block to a sustainable, eco-friendly, and ethical way of life.

I often find myself thrown down a vast rabbit hole as I search the internet for the best natural skincare products. The amount of information available today is nothing short of overwhelming.I start by searching for an organic oil cleanser and an hour later, I’m watching a Youtube video of a girl telling the story of how the synthetic fragrance in her foam cleanser ruined her love life. I’m left confused and weary. This fatigue coupled with the ever-changing beauty trends of today, aren’t good for anyone’s complexion. One week you’re being told to slather coconut oil on your face and the next, snail sludge has become the best moisturizer for your skin.As clean and organic skincare has become more available, the array of products to choose from are easy to get lost in. I am certain that what I have spent on clean skin serums alone would rival the bill of a Kardashian child’s birthday party. What’s a conscious shopper to do? As my skin reluctantly approaches its thirties, I do know one thing to be true in the realms of beauty; less is more.A few powerful, non-toxic and natural ingredients can go a long way.Essential oils pack a powerful punch in many natural skincare products. Blue Tansy Oil has calming effects, making it a great option for those experiencing hormonal acne, breakouts, or fragile skin post peel. For soothing and anti-bacterial hydration, try the Seriously Soothing Serum Stick by Acure.Camellia Oil is moisturizing and helps give skin a radiant boost. For those wanting to get their glow on, try 8 Faces Bountiful Solid Oil or Herbivore’s Orchid Facial Oil. Both use Camellia Oil as a lightweight moisturizing agent.Many of the best skincare ingredients you can look for are derived from the earth. Clay and algae are both forerunners of the clean skincare movement. Not only is it a gorgeous bathroom counter addition, Among The Flowers Cleansing Mud uses rhassoul clay to help lift away impurities. The coveted Vintner’s Daughter Active Treatment Essence uses marine microalgae, while OSEA’s Sea Mineral spray helps even out texture and refreshes the skin with brown algae.Let’s not forget about all the beauty below the neck. Exfoliation helps the skin absorb all the yummy ingredients slathered on it and can even improve circulation. South African brand African Botanics uses raw cane sugar and Kalahari desert salt in their Detoxifying Body Scrub to help slough off dead skin. For a body polish with a touch of pink, try cult favorite Herbivore’s Coco Rose Body Polish. Ingredients like Moroccan rose add a feminine touch to the all-over scrub.If craving a sultry evening of leg shaving after exfoliation, F. Miller’s Shave Oil preps the skin for a close shave. A symphony of oils like jojoba, calendula and sandalwood coat the skin with moisture and help to heal irritated skin. Say good-bye to trails of razor bumps and hello to irresistibly soft legs.Thankfully, good skincare products are easier to find than a second date. With a multitude of products available, it’s important to pay attention to the roster of ingredients on products and find what works for you.
