With the Editors of ELLE, Emily Dougherty and Margaux Anbouba have saved us all a bunch of time by reviewing hundreds of skincare, hair, makeup & do your body good products for this year’s Green Beauty Stars.
When ELLE first launched the Green Beauty Stars Awards in 2006, they defined green beauty as products powered by naturally-derived actives.

ELLE has narrowed down all of the entries to create a list of their favorite green products – those which check the boxes of having sustainability efforts, recyclable packaging, and meeting the EWG definition of “clean.”
