We created a list of the safest clean beauty stores worldwide for you. Because one of the biggest barriers of making the switch to nontoxic cosmetics is that people simply don’t know what’s safe and what’s not. Many of us consumers have taken it upon ourselves to learn the lingo and decipher a label’s hard to read ingredients. But the fact of the matter is that many don’t have the time or energy to research every product just to know what’s safe to use (and we shouldn’t have to). Luckily, there are plenty of online shops who’ve done the work for you by setting strict standards for their products. To shop clean beauty products without worry, check out the 10 best clean beauty stores below.

Former beauty editor Nina Weston was fed up with the ads and pretty packaging distracting consumers from the harmful toxins in much of the beauty industry. As a result, Weston saw firsthand how others’ skin reacted to the common synthetics and cheap fillers in conventional products. After doing her own research and discovering the links between these typical ingredients and popular health complaints, she set out to offer natural alternatives through Beautiful Because. Weston is rather aware that it can be difficult to find clean beauty products that emulate the results and textures of conventional products. Hence, it became her mission to bring the high-performing nontoxic products to the masses with Beautiful Because.
