Clean Beauty: A Trend to Stick to in 2021

Clean Beauty: A Trend to Stick to in 2021

By Jill Burke
What is "clean beauty"? This trend has been skyrocketing in popularity in the past year as people seek ways to take care of themselves and the planet in healthier ways. Clean beauty trends generally fall into two categories: (1) products that contain all-natural ingredients as opposed to mystery chemicals and (2) products that are kind to animals/the environment. Many clean beauty trends embody both! These trends are found in cosmetics, fashion, and even jewelry. Today we are happy to list our favorite eco conscious brands, trends, and products for the health and eco conscious shopper.

Clean Beauty Trends

Recycled, recyclable, and reusable packaging are coming into the spotlight as eco friendly skin care brands like Lush, Kahina, and Aether Beauty highlight sustainability in their products. Clean beauty brands are becoming more attractive as environmental awareness and self care rituals collide in the health conscious shopper. Natural skincare is also generally more sensitive skin friendly, so clean beauty brands and clean beauty products are truly the best of both worlds. Whether you have sensitive skin or just want to do your part to keep the planet clean, these brands and products are worth exploring.

Clean Fashion Trends

Fast fashion has been outed as being completely unsustainable for the environment (and unethical, but that's for another article). But don't worry, you can still keep your wardrobe fresh without breaking the bank with the fabulous growing trend of online thrifting. Sites like DePop, ThredUp, and Poshmark have made it easy for fashion lovers everywhere to offer up clothes they've tired of at a reduced price. The recycling of clothing is better for the environment because the less we consume the less needs to be produced, leading to less energy consumption, water consumption, and electricity consumption.
In addition to online thrifting, there are several eco conscious clothing brands working to create sustainable fashion. Organic Basics makes workout wear that is natural, renewable, recycled, biodegradable, and low-impact. Pact also makes eco conscious athletic wear, and in addition to outfitting your healthy lifestyle they also make dresses, jumpsuits, and even maternity wear.

Clean Jewelry Trends

Just as we continue to seek the best products for our skin and the environment, so too do we move toward the best skin friendly jewelry. Jewelry, like any product that gets put into your body, has differing levels of quality that affect how it interacts with your body. Sensitive ears may react to cheap metals like nickel, which accounts for metal allergies in about 20% of the population. Hypoallergenic jewelry made with titanium will not react to skin, no matter how sensitive. Titanium (often used in medical or dental implants) is the best metal for sensitive skin, which is why Tini Lux earrings use Titanium for any part of the earring that touches skin.

Clean beauty trends give you a wider array of choices on which types of businesses you want to support and which types of products you want to bring into your life. We hope that you enjoyed this brief survey of Clean Beauty Trends for 2021 and implore you to continue searching for brands that can serve you while making a positive change for the environment.
