What’s better than a beauty product that makes you look good? One that gives back, too.
To celebrate Earth Day, we’ve rounded up five of the best beauty products that support environmental causes around the globe.
The products on this list aren’t just non-toxic, and natural; they also work insanely well, and portions of proceeds go toward charitable organisations that do everything from planting trees to improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation.

Caudalie’s natural, innovative toning mist works to set makeup, provides an instant burst of hydration and tightens the appearance of pores. And because the brand is part of the “1% for the Planet” movement and donates 1% of its global sales to NPOs that work to protect the environment, you’ll feel amazing using it.
2. 100% PURE
During the entire month of April, 100% PURE are planting a tree for every product sold. Yep, they’ve teamed up with Trees for the Future, a non-profit organisation that helps plant trees in Sub-Saharan Africa. While we love their entire range, the Fruit Pigmented Ultra-Lengthening Mascara is a standout product—it lengthens, separates and conditions.
3. Josie Maran Cosmetics
Loaded with vitamin E and essential fatty acids, Josie Maran’s 100% Pure Argan Oil nourishes, hydrates and balances the skin, and helps keep Argan forests and women’s jobs safe. The brand only works with all-female cooperatives in Morocco to not only provide a fair wage and decent working conditions but also preserve the environment.
Each year, in honour of Earth Month, Aveda launches a limited-edition soy wax candle called Light The Way. And 100 percent of the profits from 2017’s spice-laden, Madagascar-inspired candle will go directing to WaterAid, an international organisation that provides access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation.
Lush’s super-hydrating Charity Pot Body Lotion smells of ylang-ylang and rosewood oils and leaves your skin soft and smooth. It’s made from seven ingredients sourced from the brands Sustainable Lush Fund project and 100 percent of each purchase goes to small grassroots organisations working in the areas of environmental conservation, animal welfare and human rights.
