Adopting sustainability practices into our everyday lives has become a huge topic of conversation in recent years, given the concerning state of the environment.
It has become imperative that we all do our best to reduce the harm we each cause to the health of the environment, and the skincare that we use is no exception. More and more brands are flipping the script and adhering to the cultural moment and doing things to make their products be more eco-friendly.
Here are a few reasons why this may be a good decision for you to make as well, and the best way of going about it.
Why the Skincare Industry is Gravitating Towards Sustainability
Now more than ever, consumers are abandoning brands that they love and have been loyal to because they would rather spend their money on brands that are committed to being green and friendlier to the environment.
A blog on the popular skincare site Arcona mentioned a recent study found that 72% of consumers are actively picking out environmentally friendly products.
Sustainability is amongst the biggest trends happening within so many industries including the beauty industry, and brands that haven’t done anything to make a change in their harmful practices (such as eliminating single-use plastics) are set to be left in the past.
When looking at sustainability through the lens of beauty and skincare, it can mean a lot of things. Many brands are reconstructing their packaging to be reusable and/or recyclable, which is a huge step in the right direction of eliminating single use plastics and making them obsolete.
Aside from the packaging, it is also huge that brands prioritize using non-toxic ingredients in their products, as this is something that is good for people and the environment alike.
Although protecting the environment and becoming more sustainable can seem like an impossible task, you have the power to make a positive difference as an individual by choosing to put your money towards sustainable skincare brands and products.
