These days, sustainability is top of mind for most people. While beauty lovers have been taking a closer look at how ingredients affect them for several years now, the scope has recently widened to include concerns like packaging, supply chain and, as with the fashion industry, human impacts as well. Beauty consumers are reevaluating their habits and seeking out brands that align with their values. We've noted these patterns and want to say that we're right there with you. Here's what we're doing to make sure our future looks bright.
We're working with brands to identify products that meet our carefully considered sustainability criteria. Factors include the ingredients and how they're sourced, how the product is manufactured and packaged, and whether the proceeds support social or environmental causes.
Try Before You Buy
Remember that our beauty stylists can create samples of nearly every item we stock. Consider taking advantage of this service before purchasing items like skin care, foundation and perfume, where color accuracy and reactions take time to reveal themselves. Items are always returnable, but a trial run goes a long way toward reducing waste.
All the Details
Interested in shopping sustainable beauty? Look for sustainability information on our product display pages. You'll see detailed information on exactly how they meet our criteria for inclusion, just above ingredients. It's possible the products you already know and love qualify (see below), but we're adding new ones all the time, so check back often.
By 2025, our goal is to ensure that 15% of the products we offer, including beauty and clothing, meet our Sustainable Style criteria.
