Sustainable skincare seems to be the latest fad these days. Wherever you go, you see more and more people wanting to jump on this bandwagon and try it out for themselves. But is sustainable beauty just a trend or will it actually change the skincare industry and your daily routine for the better? Let's find out more in this article. At Pure Sense we believe in an eco-friendly lifestyle, and way of living. But don't go by our word, we are here to give you a real and unbiased insight based on our take on skincare, to bring you what's best for you.
Sustainable and Ethical Labels
For products to come under the sustainable skincare category, they must follow certain criteria and complete a checklist. We know that sustainable skincare includes eco-friendly beauty products. But do you know when a product is considered ‚Äòcompletely sustainable'? When a product complies with not one but all the factors, i.e. it's vegan, non-toxic, cruelty-free, organic and palm oil-free.Since this is difficult and highly ambitious for most skincare brands to follow all these principles, there are very few brands that can be considered sustainable.
What is Sustainable Beauty and Skincare?
Sustainable beauty is a branch of skincare that comprises eco-friendly beauty products. In other words, sustainable beauty is made of products that rely on the healing effect of nature to show its effect on the face. For a product to be considered ‚Äòsustainable', it must follow a certain set of criteria. These include:
- Sustainable skincare products are natural and organic. It means¬† they are free from sulphates or any harmful chemicals that may potentially damage the environment.
- Since sustainable skincare products are manufactured keeping the environment and its impact in mind, the eco-friendly skincare products have recyclable packaging as well.¬†
- Sustainable beauty also contains environmentally friendly skincare products, so there is less pollution involved during the manufacturing as well.¬†
- Sustainable skincare products follow a zero waste principle. A product is considered ‚Äòzero waste', when it is nontoxic, vegan, cruelty-free, palm oil-free, made from ethically sourced and eco-certified ingredients, compatible with a zero waste style of packaging, and¬† compostable in nature.
Why to Buy Natural and Sustainable Beauty Products
There are three main reasons why sustainable skincare products are considered to be more important and effective in comparison to other types of products. These reasons include-
1. Environmental Responsibility
Nowadays, people are interested in environmentally friendly skin products, i.e. products that don't damage the environment in any manner. Most of us often unintentionally end up buying skincare products made out of plastic containers, which release some toxic chemical waste into the environment and cause pollution. This results in plastic accumulation in our natural surroundings like the water bodies and landfills and proves to have an extremely damaging effect. When people choose to buy eco-friendly skincare products, they do their bit towards fulfilling their environmental responsibility, an unspoken promise to be more prudent and careful in their actions towards the environment.
2. Increased Effectiveness
Eco-friendly skincare products have an extremely gentle effect on the skin and¬† pose a lesser threat to your skin. You're less likely to have a negative or allergic reaction if you're using eco-friendly skincare products, as these are extremely gentle on the skin. Since they don't contain any chemical ingredients, sustainable skincare products rely on the goodness of nature to get their job done and reflect their effect on skin. Due to this, there's lesser harm involved, and the effect lasts longer as well.
3. Long Term Health
The effect of chemical-based skincare products can often be harmful to your skin. However, sustainable beauty products are not toxic in nature, and protect you from signs such as eye damage, acne, hormonal imbalance, and premature ageing.¬†

This is because we believe in giving back as much as we are taking from the environment, and purify the earth with more oxygen. In the last one year, we successfully planted around 1530 trees at the Panna Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh, as a part of the #PurePlanet Initiative that we strictly abide by.
