Made from recycled materials and without chemical preservatives or artificial fragrances, these beauty tools are our top picks for self-care and eco-friendliness.
1. Bamboo Compact Mirror
Gypsy Pea Magoo for Free People
While most pocket or purse mirrors are made of plastic, often laden with toxic chemicals, Gypsy Pea Magoo uses bamboo, which doesn’t require pesticides, in this colorful compact. Its lightweight design and accompanying bamboo comb make it a convenient travel accessory.
2. Lash & Brow Groomer Brush
EcoTools’ eyelash and brow brush is made from eco-conscious materials, including a bamboo handle and recycled- aluminum reinforcements.
3. Deluxe FSC Body Brush
Bodecare’s brush removes dead skin cells with its porous Tampico plant bristles. Tampico is a more durable alternative to nylon for removing surface particles. And the beechwood Bodecare uses is certified sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
4. 6-piece Fresh Face Brush Set
This cosmetic-brush set features natural bamboo handles. As an alternative to hardwood, bamboo requires less water to reach maturation. Every set comes with a recycled-cloth travel case.
5. The Natural: Citrus Brush Cleaner
Sephora’s natural brush cleaner uses a nontoxic formula that includes citrus oils to powerfully disinfect, condition, and clean all types of brush bristles without conventional chemicals and preservatives, such as parabens.
