My 2021 Earth Day Beauty Report

by on Wednesday, April 21st, 2021 with

The theme for this year’s Earth Day is ‘Restore Our Earth’, which focuses on natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems. So I’m tackling this from an anti-aging perspective, and found out about a green haircare brand harnessing plant based ingredients long before “green beauty” was in vogue! Checkout who they are, and 4 additional brands leading the clean beauty category in 2021.


LEONOR GREYL, Created in 1968, was the first natural line of haircare to harness plant-based ingredients long before “green beauty” was in vogue. PACKAGING: This leaping bunny certified, brand’s containers are made from PET, which is one of the five materials recycled by Eco Emballage. SAVE THE PLANET: For several years they have sponsored ‘The Sea Cleaners’, which is an organization whose mission is to build the “Manta”, a catamaran capable of picking up more than 100 tons of plastic per deployment across the ocean.

  • HUILE SECRET DE BEAUTE ($70) Leonor Greyl’s multi-tasking oil is perfect for those looking to streamline their beauty routine. This nourishing blend of natural oils is packed with essential fatty acids and vitamins E and A that offer instant benefits to your hair and body. Used as a detangling styling tool, it leaves hair softened and shiny. Used on bodies, it’s properties protect your skin from premature aging. Think of it as a “One-And-Done” beauty product.
  • PRO TIP: Use at a beach or pool on hair as a natural UV filter, OR on body to prolong your tan.

PLUS LEONOR GREYL MASSAGING SCALP BRUSH ($28) The whole brush can be recycled!!! MATERIAL: Recyclable ABS and silicone. Created to clean, massage and support scalp health… this brush helps shampoo to lather up and purify the scalp while eliminating dandruff and residue. Its relaxing action leaves the scalp more supple and improves scalp oxygenation, thus promoting hair growth. The ultimate tool for healthy and shiny hair!



FILE THIS UNDER SUPER COOL: This deodorant is made with simple and clean ingredients that work, and comes in 100% plant-based sugarcane tubes.  Sugar absorbs CO2 as it grows, removing it from the atmosphere – resulting in a package material that is carbon negative and earth positive. Beyond the earth preserving packaging, the brand is regarded for creating high quality products without complicated chemicals – Each & Every ingredient matters (get the brand name now?).  As I was looking to part ways with my old aluminum infused deodorant, for health reasons, my instincts led me to Each & Every. EWG VERIFIED? YES they are! Hot off the presses & working up a sweat with People, Allure, Health, The Cut, GQ & In Style… I’m a fan of the the clean, natural Cardamon & Ginger Deo. It’s perfect for any flower child or globe trotter because this essential oil combo is a congenial scent that’s as warm as it is worldly.  It delivers a fun bohemian energy and vibe. IS THERE A FRAGRANCE FREE VERSION TOO? Yes, they make an unscented version plus, the Cardamon & Ginger scent and 6 other scents round out the core collection.
