We all need to show ourselves a little self-love now and then, and for many of us, this can come in the form of the feel-good boost you get from that new lipstick, body butter, or hair mask. And why not! It’s important to show ourselves kindness. But what if we could share a little of this kindness with the world at the same time? We have rounded up 12 of the best beauty brands that support the charity in the world because they believe that inner beauty and outer beauty should be in perfect balance!

Aether Beauty

Empowering Youth of Color

Kicking off our list is ethical brand Aether Beauty. They pride themselves in providing fully recyclable products that are cruelty-free, vegan, and non-toxic, and a portion of all sales go to environmental charities.

Sounding good so far right? They go further than this, having spotted a gap in the market for makeup that suits all skin tones. Their luxurious, diamond-infused crushed yellow highlighter has a golden shimmer that illuminates darker skin.

Better yet, a percentage of sales are donated to United Roots Oakland, an organization that empowers low-income youth of color through mentorship, access to resources, and programs like art and music.

The Body Shop

Caring in the Covid Crisis

Chances are you already know that The Body Shop is a brand with an ethical conscience. This iconic beauty company has built a reputation on being “a brand with a lot to say”, throwing themselves behind campaigns to end animal testing, gender inequality, and unsustainable business processes…to name but a few!

Thus it may come as no surprise that the brand has been doing their bit during the covid-19 crisis. They have donated 30,000 units of cleansing products to communities in need across the USA and Canada. In the UK, 50,000 units of soap and hand cream have been supplied to hospital staff.

It’s estimated that over 1.8 million LGBTQ youth consider suicide in the US each year. Herbivore Botanicals are actively responding to this tragedy by supporting 3 charities driving positive change: Rainbow Railroad (safety and asylum) Immigration Equality (free legal support) and The Trevor Project (youth mental health support).

However, LGBTQ causes are only part of the story, as the brand has also raised money for removing plastic from the oceans, civil and reproductive rights, and cannabis legalization for therapeutics and research. This way, since 2019, their charitable contributions have gone up by 40%, making it one of the most dedicated beauty brands that support charity.
