Meet the eco-beauty warriors

Want a regime that is more planet-friendly but still delivers results? These women have done the work so you don’t have to

Here’s a stat: more than 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the beauty industry. And most of it is still not recyclable – indeed, a typical moisturiser pot can take up to 1000 years to decompose.

In the last issue of healthy – our ‘Naked Beauty’ special – we urged you to ditch unnecessary packaging. But we know living the eco-beauty life isn’t easy when there’s so much glossy (and well wrapped) temptation around. Not to mention products we still use even though we know we shouldn’t (because they work).

Like the clean-eating influencers who gave food a makeover a few years ago, a new cast of ambassadors is inspiring eco-conscious consumers with planet-friendly beauty regimes and tips. Yes, some of their go-tos may be on the extreme side (urine toner, anyone?), but much of what they advocate could – and should – be adopted by all of us. These eco-beauty heroes might just have the perfect swap for that non-eco product you think you can’t live without.

About Healthy Magazine

Welcome to the September issue of healthy! Our intimate health issue is here! The September edition of healthy seeks to end embarrassment around the topic of ‘down-there’ care and give the answers to the questions you won’t find anywhere else. From updates on endometriosis, to an empowering take on orgasms, we hope that this issue will help you to understand your body better. We’ve got a debate on whether or not watching porn can be healthy, advice on the best choice of contraception for you and tips on how you can balance your vaginal microbiome. Don’t worry – there’s no vaginal steaming and not a jade egg in sight! And that’s not all. In addition to our regular features and expert-led content, we’ve also investigated the health impact of microplastics, written about why we’re loving church hall fitness classes and shared some nutritious breakfast recipes for you to try. Plus, we’ve chatted to inspirational women who are paving the way for eco-friendly beauty. Find all this and more in the new issue of healthy.
