At NEON, we feel that sustainability within the Fashion and Beauty industry is super important. This is particularly due to that fact that in recent years, these industries have primarily contributed to the world’s pollution. Not to mention, the harmful chemicals that so many beauty products contain! Check out some of our favourite sustainable beauty brands below.

 

Brand no. 1: Lano Lips’ Hydrating Lip Luminiser.

Lano Lips has also featured in a previous ‘Travel Essentials’ article of ours because we can’t get enough. Their ‘hydrating lip luminiser’ gloss works wonders as a rich lip conditioner softening the lips while giving a glossy, tinted finish.

The best part is it’s 98% natural with 2% glow. With its main ingredient being lanolin, the product contains 0 artificial fragrances, parabens, petrolatum, peg’s, mineral oils or sulphates. Also, of course, the product is not tested on animals either.

The product has been such a hit, celebrities such as Drew Barrymore, Chelsea Handler and Rosie Huntington-Whitely have all showcased their love for the product.

The glossy product comes in two different shades, Desert Glow and Beach Pop. Shop now at Mecca or Sephora.

 

Brand no. 2: Eye of Horus Cosmetics 

Another Aussie brand doing us proud is Egyptian inspired ‘Eye of Horus’. The brand focuses predominantly on eye makeup that is high performance and illuminating and is also cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.

Eye of Horus products are balanced with key natural organic botanicals and infused with ingredients of Moringa Oil, Ancient Castor and Abyssinian Oil.

 

Brand no. 3: ILIA Beauty

This organic and gorgeous makeup brand is ‘carving out a new path in beauty’ as they claim by balancing safety with product performance. Ilia believes that not all-natural ingredients are necessarily good, and not all synthetic ones are bad either. It usually requires a combination of both to achieve a ‘truly exceptional product’, and that is precisely what they have done with their ranges for face, lips and eyes.

Gwyneth Paltrow recently wrote about the Ilia’ Limitless Lash Mascara’ (shown below) as being one of her favourites along with the ‘Multi-Stick’, and the True Skin Serum Foundation (also below).
