5 Eco-Friendly Beauty Switches to Make This Earth Day
The beauty industry is filled with consumption, chemicals, & single use products. As consumers, we can make a difference by choosing to make smart choices with the environment in mind. Sustainability is a crucial part of the ethos at Lena Rose Beauty and at the core of what it means to be a green beauty salon and spa. As part of this mission, all products are handmade from independent retailers in small batches with the purest sourced ingredients. Here are 5 products in the Lena Rose shop you can swap out for a more eco-friendly option.
Traditional sunscreen can be toxic for our coral reefs (and our skin!). A reef-safe SPF refers to ones that do not contain oxybenzone and octinoxate, two common UV-blocking chemicals, that studies have shown can cause coral bleaching. Impeccable Skin Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is medium coverage tinted moisturizer, sunscreen and light foundation with SPF 30 gives skin a flawless, smooth, more youthful appearance - while also being environmentally friendly! Vegan and reef-safe, it's available in 6 shades.
