Curated by Claudia Shannon / Research Scientist / ishonest

Tenille Murphy, sustainable living influencer

“One of my favorite sustainable beauty products is definitely Cocokind's Vitamin C Serum with Sea Grape Caviar. When I heard Cocokind would be coming out with a vegan Vitamin C serum last year, I could not wait to get my hands on it. Well, as usual, Cocokind did not disappoint! I use Cocokind's vitamin C serum in both my morning and evening skincare routine. The key ingredients are vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and sustainably sourced sea grape caviar which all work together to leave my skin brighter-looking, hydrated, and with that glow I love. The gentle formula is packed with antioxidants and thoughtfully chosen organic ingredients like aloe vera. As usual, not a detail was missed with Cocokind's packaging. Their recyclable bottles are powder coated using a pollution-free, low energy process. Best of all, the price point is super affordable.”

Sarah Feingold, model

“If I don't make my own rose water, I use this one from Kahina Giving. Spritzing this on my face and body just makes me feel beautiful and feminine. It's 100% pure steam-distilled Rosa Damascena, handpicked in the Atlas mountains of Morocco. I use it as a toner in the morning, at night, and in between.”

“by Humankind tackles a very clear issue in consumer packaged goods; packaging. I love their shampoo and conditioner. They also have fragrance free options which I appreciate as some essential oils carry enormous carbon footprints with marginal benefits outside of aromatherapy. Overall, I find by Humankind dedicated to reducing packaging and smart solutions with a dose of transparency which I really appreciate.”

Annie Jackson, Credo co-founder + COO

“All the shades of these balms are highly pigmented but really wearable. I love the creamy balm texture too. The best part is the 100% zero-waste packaging. They are wrapped in paper and kept in a recyclable box, and are still adorable.”

Katey Denno, Credo brand ambassador + lead makeup artist

“Created by a makeup artist, the Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation is one of my favorite products. When applied over oil or moisturizer, it creates the appearance of extremely even skin, and nothing more. A little goes a long way, so once you’ve spent the money on the external refillable packaging, you can feel good about how low the carbon footprint of the refill is, compared to a heavy glass or plastic bottle.”

Lindura, model, actress, and activist

“I’m currently in love with the InflorEssence Moisturizer from Altilis Beauty. I apply it in the morning after a face serum, and it really locks in moisture and keeps my face hydrated all day. My skin still feels soft by the time I cleanse it at the end of the day and I’ve never got that from another moisturizer! It’s super lightweight but a little goes a long way, so it’s lasted me 6 months so far. I also love that they sustainably source their breadfruit flower ingredients from Samoa, benefitting the planet and the local people there.”
