Three New Fun and Inspirational Green Cosmetics Companies

It seems that almost every other day there’s a great new green business specializing in natural and eco-friendly cosmetics and personal care products. Here are three that should get you thinking about how you might become a green entrepreneur in the cosmetics field, too.

Symbolic Soaps that are Eco-Friendly and Good for the Environment, Too

Developed to raise money for the Gulf Restoration Network and the International Bird Rescue, the BirdProject makes glycerin soaps that are a pleasure to use and to look at. As you wash up, you wear away the exterior to reveal the ceramic bird keepsake inside. Developed by Sweet Olive Soap Works, these soaps are formulated using biodiesel glycerin, fair trade olive oil, aloe, and natural cypress scent.

Using Wine Byproducts to Make Green Cosmetics

In a beautiful synergy, winemaker Group Matarromera has developed a new natural skincare line based on the same grapes they use to make their award-winning wines. Esdor, the new cosmetics company, specializes in products that are antioxidant-rich based on powerful polyphenol formulations that are derived from grape skins. Their cosmetics are all 85% natural including ingredients like jojoba oil, musk oil, wheat germ oil, and more. Plus, they’re all free of parabens, mineral oils, and artificial colors.

Herborist Green Skincare from China

The Herborist is a new natural personal care products company with beautiful formulations coming out of China. Based on the premise that you shine from the inside out, their skincare line, special treatments products, and aromatherapies are infused with the essence of herbs to help make your skin and hair look radiant. The company prides itself on integrating classic Chinese cosmetology principles, peculiar herbal essences, and the latest in modern biotechnical achievements. They also carry a variety of food therapies that further enhance your beauty by providing nutrients from the inside out, such as rose, lavender, or chamomile tea.
