With both Earth Hour and Earth Day coming up over the next weeks, here are the latest beauty releases designed to make you look and feel good at the same time.
Artists for the rain forest
Actress Julianne Moore, rapper Pharrell Williams, artist Jeff Koons and professional surfer Malia Jones have designed new labels for the Acai Damage-Protecting Toning Mist by Kiehl's ($26). All proceeds will go to the Rainforest Alliance.
Gisele Bundchen, who officially promotes Earth Hour in a newly released commercial, has just launched a three-product beauty line called Sejaa. She used coconut oil as a preservative and told US Vogue: "[The manufacturers] were ready to kill me. I wanted the cream to be organic - they explained that if it's organic, it's alive, and that means it can't survive for a long time."
Soft Hands Kind Heart
The Body Shop's ethical hand cream ($10) benefits ECPAT USA (End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography, and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes) and the Somaly Mam Foundation.
Swedish retailer H&M has launched its first-ever organic skincare line, including shower gel, body scrub, body lotion, hand cream and lip balm (all under €4.90), available in raspberry, melon, lavender, and mint fragrances. All products are certified by organic product authority Ecocert, and they come accompanied by makeup bags made from organic cotton.
Blue Marble Energy, a US organization committed to cutting carbon emissions, has teamed up with Seattle-based perfumery Sweet Anthem to create what it claims to be the first-ever carbon-free fragrance, made from brewery waste instead of petroleum. EOS sells online for $30.Reuse content
