TIMESINDONESIA, JAKARTA – Nowadays, beauty industry is growing rapidly. Both local and international beauty industries are growing and creating more and more products.
Beauty industry is now on the rise, following the increasing demand from the consumers that have become more aware of their skin health.
However, everything we use on the planet also has impacts to the planet, including beauty products. Most people are not aware of the negative impacts caused by beauty industries. The beauty industry is known for its heavy use of plastics in their packaging. As we know, plastics are not recyclable.
In addition to that, beauty products sometimes contain harmful substances that can be the most polluting materials in the environment. Some beauty industries also use animal testing. To reduce this kind of environmental pollution, nowadays, most beauty brands start moving to sustainable beauty.
Sustainable beauty is defined as a movement that adopts eco-friendly, zero-waste choices for the beauty routine by using materials and products that are safe for humans and environment. This beauty trend has three core values, namely skin-friendly, eco-friendly and socially friendly.
Here are some ways to make your beauty routine more environmentally friendly:
