Updated: May 30

Have you at some point thought about the varying views on clean beauty? Gosh! It sometimes feels like a debate among politicians where everyone is just trying to be heard without necessarily making any point. Utter chaos is an apt way to put it. We have however learned that overtime, right in the middle of the topsy-turvy, you can find the truth.

Now, what is the truth about clean beauty?

Let us start with this – what does clean beauty promise all of us?

Our human efforts have rarely led us to find permanent solutions to the problems plaguing us, and most times, the problems we cannot find permanent solutions to, are often self-inflicted.

Over the years, our self-care industry has grown so big but unfortunately, the focus these days is on amassing the most profit. That’s why most self-care products available on the market only result in more problems for users especially when used over time. Our quest for beauty has also exposed us all to several harmful practices that are being promoted by the global skincare products industry. These harmful practices affect our planet and have subjected it more to the harsher effects of global warming.

This is a big challenge and thankfully, clean beauty has risen to this challenge. We have found that within the same self-care industry, there are some change agents. Quite a few have chosen to help us solve this problem permanently if we all embrace clean beauty.
