6 Ethical Beauty Brands We Love

Cruelty-free, made with natural products.

Days are getting longer, the sun warmer, and nature is looking even more vibrant and beautiful. The birds are chirping and the air smells heavenly. It’s almost impossible not to appreciate the outdoors at a time like this. And what better way to do so  than by respecting it and changing the little ways you may be having a negative impact on your environment - i.e. the beauty products you buy. Sadly, so many brands still support the use of testing on animals, harmful synthetics, and non-recycled packaging. (For an up to date list of these un-progressive brands you can click here.)

But this isn’t a call-out-post - rather it's in appreciation of some amazing ethical beauty brands you have to check out. Because if you feel good about what you’re putting on your body, and you’re doing some good for our Earth, there’s no way you’re not going to feel beautiful.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
