Decoding the lingo on Clean Beauty

Decoding the lingo on Clean Beauty

We know haircare and will decode the lingo surrounding Clean Beauty and help you understand what it entails. The professional haircare industry has embarqued on setting a new standard and transparency with accessible listing of their ingredients and packaging commitments. When it comes to beauty products, the term 'Clean Beauty' has been making waves in the industry and we are proud to support them. But what does it really mean? 

What is Clean Beauty?

Clean Beauty is a concept that focuses on the use of products made with non-toxic and natural ingredients. These beauty products are free from harmful chemicals, synthetic fragrances, and other potentially harmful substances. The goal is to create a healthier and safer beauty routine.

Why is Clean Beauty important?

  • Your Health: Beauty products are often absorbed by your skin and potentially cause health issues. Clean Beauty products, on the other hand, prioritize natural and non-toxic ingredients that are safer for your overall health.
  • Sustainability: Clean Beauty also emphasizes sustainable practices, such as using eco-friendly packaging and supporting cruelty-free testing methods. By choosing Clean Beauty, you contribute to a healthier planet.
  • Transparency: Clean Beauty brands are often more transparent about their ingredients, manufacturing processes, and sourcing. This transparency allows consumers to make informed choices and ensures that these products align with their own strong value system.

When exploring Clean Beauty, you will come across ingredients you will not be able to identify or pronounce. Here's a breakdown of some common Clean Beauty lingo:

  • Organic: Indicates that the ingredients used in the product are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.
  • Natural: Implies that the product contains ingredients derived from plants or minerals, with minimal processing.

  • Cruelty-free: Indicates that the product and its ingredients were not tested on animals. Leaping Bunny and Choose Cruelty Free are the two most respectable organizations.
  • Vegan: Means that the product does not contain any animal-derived ingredients.  A commoin misconception worth mentioning is: it's imporant to remember that a vegan product does not guarantee to also be cruelty free.
  • Non-toxic: Signifies that the product does not contain any harmful ingredients.

We often get asked how to Identify Clean Beauty Products.

Identifying Clean Beauty products can be challenging, as the industry lacks strict regulations. However, you can look for certifications from reputable organizations, such as the USDA Organic seal or the Leaping Bunny logo for cruelty-free products. 

Clean Beauty is more than just a trend. It's a movement that prioritizes our health, the environment, and transparency and making informed choices, you can embrace Clean Beauty and enjoy the benefits it offers. So, go ahead and give your beauty routine a clean upgrade!
