The process of choosing the right skin-care product for you involves a lot of considerations—and not just when it comes to the health of your skin. The production and disposal of personal care products can have a huge impact on the environment. From the chemicals used to manufacture them to the plastic bottles they are packaged in, conventional skin-care brands often contribute to pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, and climate change.

Fortunately, many brands are taking a stand against the needless waste produced within the industry. The British line REN Skincare, for example, has been committed to making clean products since its founding in 2000, which means their cleansers, moisturizers, and oils are made exclusively with natural ingredients and are free of parabens, sulfates, petroleum, and synthetic colors and fragrances. While this certainly contributes to a cleaner environment, the company is taking their commitment to eco-friendly practices a step further: By 2021, the brand will be completely zero-waste.
