Facts About the ‘Clean’ Beauty Industry That Will Make You Rethink Your Next Buy

So you just purchased a clean beauty product, but how certain are you of its claims? The beauty industry — just like fashion — is no stranger to greenwashing and unregulated business practices. Not to mention, it’s equally responsible for plastic pollution, microplastics in the ocean, and landfill waste. Ahead, we unearth some of the most alarming facts about the beauty industry to inform and help you make better choices in the future. 

    While these facts may seem daunting, there are ways to avoid causing more harm to the environment. Phone apps like Think Dirty and Beat the Microbead can scan product barcodes and immediately inform you whether the product in question is sustainable or not.
