With an increasing number of consumers voicing their concerns about chemicals used in the beauty industry, we’re seeing more brands offer natural and “clean” alternatives. Though this term is used loosely to attract green beauty enthusiasts, there are companies living up to their ingredient claims. With that said, some products don’t fulfill the expectations of skincare lovers and end up falling flat. Here you’ll discover some incredible Canadian brands that really work and are just as good for you as they are the environment. Get ready to fill your online shopping cart(s) and start scrolling.

Phillip Adam Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo And Conditioner

Made in Vancouver, this shampoo comprised of astringent apple cider vinegar, rosemary, lemon balm, and other delectable fruit extracts ensures a squeaky clean without stripping natural oils from the hair. In combination with the hydrating conditioner, both products help prevent dandruff and balance the pH of the scalp. The formulas are vegan and SLS, paraben, gluten, and cruelty-free too.

Routine Like A Boss Deodorant

We’re familiar with the struggle of trying just about every natural deodorant that exists and not finding one that jives with your body chemistry. With conventional anti-perspirants and deodorants posing health risks due to parabens, aluminum, and phthalates making their way past the skin’s epidermis, all-natural formulations are in high demand. Routine offers non-beeswax, baking soda free, and unscented formulas for sensitive skin in a number of unique scents such as Like A Boss – our personal fave mixed with geranium and rosemary.

Sahajan Ritual Body Oil

On days you have a little extra time and want to indulge in some major self-care, the only thing you need is this Ritual Body Oil by Toronto-based Ayurvedic skincare brand Sahajan. Its ultra-nourishing blend of coconut, sweet almond, sesame, avocado, sunflower, and jojoba seed oils help to create a protective moisture barrier against the dry winter air. And a few drops from the recyclable glass bottle on damp skin are enough to provide you with tons of hydration and a beautiful glow.

Luna Nectar Moon Boost Lash And Brow Enhancing Serum

Monthly lash extensions are expensive. So, why not opt for an easy-to-apply serum formulated without chemicals or hormones that delivers quick results? Canadian brand Luna Nectar’s Moon Boost Lash and Brow Enhancing Serum is 100 per cent natural, vegan, fragrance, and cruelty-free. It can also be used on lash extensions to repair and strengthen their side effects, as ingredients like arginine, castor oil, horsetail and gotu kola improve circulation at eyelash follicles and roots. Applied at night, Moon Boost is lightweight and non-irritating – perfect for a fuss-free beauty sleep.
