Today marks Earth Day. We at CIIN happen to be celebrating all the beauty our magnificent earth is offering us, by admiring and devoting this special edit about the importance of cruelty-free and eco-friendly skincare products that are literally kind, organic and natural..
This increased awareness has been on the rise recently.. Not so long ago beauty products were physically and scientifically so far from being ‘beautiful’.. With skin care and makeup containing harsh chemicals, artificial coloring and fragrances, animal testing and last but not least the horrible plastic waste, we reached to a realization that our actions tend to affect our environment. This understanding has triggered many brands to move from harsh and toxic towards natural, organic and low-impact setting new standards within the beauty industry..
However, many of the brands that claim being eco-friendly lack the efficacy in their products. It’s one thing to admire and use a cruelty-free brand but it’s also got to work.. Below we summed up clean and green beauty brands that are making it big, without compromising efficiency and effectiveness..
