Metro Style takes a look at a few lip glosses that give back to Mother Earth each time you buy.
1. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Candy’s Organics’ delicious, 100 percent natural, handmade scrubs will benefit animal shelters and ocean cleanup. $25-$65, www.candysorganics.com
2. Not only is this Skin by Monica lip gloss chemical-free and cute, but all the packaging used by the brand is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council; it uses less energy than recycled paper. Gloss & Plump, $18, www.skinbymonica.com
3. 100 percent of the net proceeds from Kiehl’s limited-edition label-art series (this year Michael C. Hall and Chloe Sevigny designed labels for the Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque) will go to Waterkeeper Alliance, an organization dedicated to protecting our waterways. $23, 212-677-3171
4. For every product you buy from emerginC’s new Scientific Organics line, the brand will donate $1 to Plant-It 2020, a non-profit which plants tress worldwide. That’s enough reason to try their cool sounding Kombucha face wash.
5. The next time you go on a trip throw ONE’s solid shampoo bar in your bag. The concentrated formula, which is equivalent to three 8 ounce bottles of shampoo, and comes in one recyclable cardboard container, is earth-friendly and perfect for travel.
6. Skin 2 Skin boasts non-toxic natural cleansers, creams and masks with the highest concentration of anti-aging peptides and Dermatologist-recommended Alpha Lipoic Acid.
Revitalizing Eye Gel, $42, www.skin2skincare.com
7. Bambola Beauty Vitamin C Moisturizer Avocado, Lycopene and organic seaweed extract combine to make this face cream that cultivates a balanced skin tone.
