OUR STANDARDS FOR NON TOXIC BEAUTY

NON TOXIC = SAFE

Non-Toxic Beauty is complicated - to say the least - every brand and retailer seems to have a different definition for exactly "non-toxic" actually means. But we do our best to make it as simple as possible for you to shop makeup, skincare, & haircare that's effective,  ethical, non-toxic (commonly referred to as "clean"), cruelty-free, & vegan. We want you to be able to shop your values with confidence, so we did our best to make sure our curation covers all the requirements that matter. We only sell products that are safe for you to wear and not linked to any health concerns (as far as we know). Our products never use any animal products or animal by-products, & they're always 100% cruelty free - meaning they're not sold in countries that require animal testing, like mainland China. Our conscious brand partners also buy & source their ingredients ethically - needless to say, we're super proud to be working with them. 

We don't require that the products we carry be all-natural or organic, but many of the brands that we carry are all-natural & do use organic ingredients in their formulations. 

Read below to see our list of excluded ingredients. If there are any "watch-out" ingredients that may cause sensitivities (& are not included in our list below), we'll be sure to call them out directly on product pages, so that you know.
