It safe to say the world of clean beauty is so big, it’s forcing most of us to take a long, hard look–and in some cases, throw away– the stuff we’re slathering onto our skin. What used to be a select few products that weren’t exactly effective, have blossomed into loads of quality formulas full of natural ingredients that actually work and work well. So much so, that 2018 even marked the genesis of a Clean Beauty Seal in all Sephora stores.
If the name didn’t give it away, this label highlights products made without common harmful ingredients, including, but not limited to: sulfates, parabens, formaldehydes, phthalates and mineral oil. We would be shocked if 2019 didn’t bring more Clean Beauty-like seals from other retailers, but for now, we’ve got plenty of new drops to keep us occupied and well on our way to a more eco-friendly vanity.
From hydrating shampoos to gentle nail polish removers, here are the most noteworthy options at Sephora and the drugstore.
