14 Green Beauty Gift Ideas

Beauty products and eco-friendliness do not always go hand in hand. But if you’re looking for ideas for the environmentally-minded beauty lover in your life, these gifts fit the bill.

Yuzen Monthly Eco-Conscious Gift Box, $26+
Through Yuzen, you can send a beautifully packaged box of “zen” each month. Your recipient will be unwrapping a surprise collection of hand-selected organic personal care products and lifestyle items from eco-conscious companies – and enjoying your gift well into the new year. Choose between one-month, three-month, or six-month delivery options.

Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in Vanilla Apricot, $35
This lightweight body butter, made with intensely moisturizing argan oil, is cruelty-free and made with natural organic ingredients. Argan oil, the signature ingredient in Josie Maran products, is harvested by Moroccan women in fair trade co-ops, which are dedicated to both the preservation of argan forests and women’s jobs. (Another great pick that gives back: Argan Bear Naked Wipes ($12), which benefit NRDC’s Polar Bear SOS Initiative.)

Juice Beauty Organics-to-Go Kit, $29
Juice Beauty is rigorous about the purity and eco-consciousness of their ingredients and the effectiveness of their products. The company also supports organic farming, solar manufacturing, and the recycled paper business. This kit includes Cleansing Milk, Green Apple Peel, Antioxidant Serum, Hydrating Mist, and Nutrient Moisturizer.

100% Pure Cosmetics Fruit Pigmented Lip & Cheek Tint, $15
The pigments in this line come from antioxidant-packed fruits and vegetables, rather than synthetic colors or crushed beetles (!). The multi-functional Lip & Cheek Tints are made with cocoa and shea butters and come in six colors, including Shimmery Cocoa Berry and Sugar Plum.
