The Best One-Stop Shops for Clean Beauty
The way clean beauty has taken the beauty industry by storm over the last few years has been incredible to watch as more and more non-toxic brands and ingredient-conscious beauty products are emerging on the reg. As our awareness and demand of green beauty has grown, luckily, so has the amount of shops and websites providing those products.
The following nine shops should be bookmarked ASAP if you’re introducing clean beauty to your life since they do all the vetting for you; compiling all the best natural, non-toxic and indie beauty brands in one aesthetically-pleasing, easy-to-shop spot.
1. Credo Beauty
Credo Beauty’s huge selection of clean indie and luxury brands are always held to Credo’s Clean Standard, meaning none of the ingredients listed on their comprehensive “dirty” list are present, there is proof of authenticity and the products are never tested on animals. With their online presence and their 8 and counting retail locations across the U.S, Credo is clearly a leader in the clean beauty retail world, and for good reason.
Curated by Gwyneth Paltrow, goop’s clean beauty shop is a total gold-mine of clean beauty products including goop’s illustrious line of safe skincare. With over 100 clean luxury and under-the-radar brands available, you can rest easy knowing your intention to shop clean aligns with the products offered on their Gwyneth-approved online shop.
3. Le Vert Beauty
LeVert Beauty believes you deserve better than the conventional products on the market, which is why why they do the vetting for us; carefully curating the best quality-driven products that are free of toxic and harmful ingredients. This shop, which rightfully receives high praise, stocks an elite round-up of green beauty products on their website so that you can purchase with intention. Plus, your bathroom counter will never look more beautiful.
4. Content Beauty
Arguably the best organic beauty store in London, not to mention Emma Watson endorsed, Content is comprised of a natural skincare boutique, naturopathic clinic, beauty salon and website. Stocking emerging results-driven brands and covering categories such as organic hair care, make up, skincare and perfumes, Content will easily fulfill all your green beauty requirements.
5. The Detox Market
The massive selection of brands at The Detox Market, a California-based clean beauty destination, will absolutely blow you away. All of the products on the website are effective, regularly checked for purity and sourced from a mix of cult green beauty companies and smaller, indie brands. The company’s passion for green beauty means they only source brands that share the same ethos, ensuring you’ll only find hard-working and clean formulations in the products they offer.
6. The Stell
If The Stell’s perfectly minimalistic aesthetic doesn’t draw you in, the fact that they offer the best independent, natural products on the market certainly should. This carefully curated assortment of clean beauty products are formulated with high-quality and often sustainable ingredients. Most of the transparent brands are also conscious of the Earth, using only biodegradable ingredients and packaging- giving it one more reason to earn a spot on the list.
7. Cap Beauty
Cap Beauty believes beauty is wellness and that the power of plants is paramount so, naturally, their uber-chic shelves are stocked with over 150 brands of products that have transformational plant ingredients. Calling their brand a clubhouse, this retail and online space is more than just a beauty shop. You’ll leave stocked with natural skincare and tonics, sure, but you’ll also leave feeling blissful and inspired (after all, the floors are lined with rose quartz).
Follain’s founder Tara Foley believes no one should have to sacrifice health for beauty so she went on an uncompromising quest in 2013 to find the best clean beauty products on the market. That quest eventually took Follain to 5 retail locations across the U.S and their easy-to-navigate online shop. To pass their approval test, the product has to be completely free of harmful ingredients, effective and luxurious- meaning you’ll find a carefully curated selection of natural skincare, makeup and hair products that have been rigorously vetted for you.
9. Lemon Laine
Newcomer Lemon Laine is a natural beauty and wellness shop found in Nashville, TN that is as wonderfully stocked with clean beauty brands as it is beautiful. A trip to Lemon Laine wouldn’t be complete without sitting down at their '“oil bar”, where you can get a unique-to-your-skin customized facial oil made from plants, nuts and seeds in addition to the clean, luxurious products they stock on their aesthetically-pleasing shelves.
