Back to nature!
We’re a few months into the year, and our clean and green beauty resolutions have not wavered. We’re definitely huge fans of products that get the job done, but sometimes that comes at a cost. Let’s all do our best to steer clear of brands that test on animals or source ingredients in harmful ways.
So, in order to help you on your cruelty-free product quest, we’ve sourced five brands that can address your natural skin concerns. Check these five stores located inside the Eaton Centre.
1. Aveda Experience Centre:
Aveda has been a friend to the environment since 1978, and continues to push the boundaries for natural beauty products. From their hair care products to luxe makeup skincare buys, they stock our vanities with some of the best planet-friendly finds around town. If you’re hoping to snag a few of their smooth frizzing potions or sun care products before your holiday in the sun, be sure to stop by their experience store right here in Toronto.
2. Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics:
Lush seriously brings the fun to the natural beauty industry! Not only do they buy ethically, but they proactively fight against animal testing. Their products are handmade and vegetarian, and to top it all off, their packaging is recycled. Stop by their Eaton’s Centre store for their latest and greatest including a slew of colourful bath bombs, lotions and the like.
3. Saje Natural Wellness:
The come up story for Saje Natural Wellness has been exciting to watch. If you’ve ever stopped by one of their locations, you will notice a fragrant aroma that allows you to feel centred no matter the situation. Saje is also a proudly Canadian brand that uses 100% natural ingredients derived from true sources. All ingredients are listed very clearly on the label and boast no artificial fragrances, parabens, silicones or SLS.
