Palm Oil-Free Lipstick
Palm oil is commonly found in lipstick and has a very negative impact on the environment due to the way it's intensely farmed. Look for our palm oil-free accreditation, and watch out the the other monikers palm oil can appear under on ingredient lists, including 'palmolein', 'glyceryl' and 'stearate'.
Cruelty-free and vegan lipstick isn't made with any animal-derived ingredients and it hasn't been tested on animals. Generally, plant-based materials have a lower impact that animal-derived ingredients, so it can also lead to a better environmental footprint.
Lip Oils & Lip Stain
Lip oils and lip stain can be made at home with plenty of recipes available online, allowing you to choose vegetable oils and choose ingredients that haven't been tested on animals. Opt for recipes that use natural ingredients like beetroot to reduce using synthetic chemicals and allowing you to make only what you need.
