Rethink your beauty favourites with heroes that are more than just skin deep.
Le Passant Eau De Parfum 100ml1An eco-friendly perfume might as well be an oxymoron – but not for Ormaie. Each fragrance is created solely from natural ingredients, with bottles made from recycled glass and featuring a hand-carved wood topper sourced from renewable forests. Now that is the very definition of understated cool.
Philanthropy Cheek Shade2Chantecaille's philanthropic efforts are unsurpassed. In 2019 alone, the brand planted 22,905 trees in Mexico with Monarch Butterfly Fund, and restored 200,000 acres of pollinator habitat with Xerces Society. Its special-edition palettes are not only beautiful art forms, but always have a story to tell.
The Healing Sap 125ml3Being green isn't something new for Orveda – the brand's philosophy is based on clean ingredients and plant-based actives. All formulations are vegan, cruelty-free and come in pure glass to minimise plastic usage. But it's the brand's hero – The Healing Sap – that really proves the power of plants.
Vanish™ Airbrush Concealer4Hourglass has a mammoth New Year's resolution – its mission for 2020 is to be completely vegan, as well as donate 1% of its profits to the Nonhuman Rights Project. But the best bit? The brand is still producing some of the best beauty in the business. Check out its new Vanish Airbrush Concealer.

Lipstick / VIVA GLAM 256 MAC was one of the first brands to show us that beauty isn't only skin deep. Every penny of the retail price of Viva Glam Lipsticks is donated to organisations that support the health and rights of people of all ages, races and genders.
EXPERIMENTAL PERFUME CLUB
Black Bergamot Eau de Parfum 8ml7EPC believes that ‘slow’ perfumery is where it's at. Everything from creation to filtration happens over several months, which helps keep plastic and transport usage to a minimum. Its perfume boxes are made from 100% recycled material and printed using vegetable-based inks. Cruelty-free, vegan and free of palm oil or derivatives – it doesn't get better than this.
Purifying Pink Clay Mask 60g8Organic, cruelty-free and vegan – Sand & Sky's conscious thinking is doing as much behind the scenes as its acclaimed 4-in-1 treatment does for the skin. Powered by Australian pink clay sourced from one of the purest environments on earth, the mask isn't just free from toxins; it draws out your skin's impurities too.
