GREENER BEAUTY IS A VEGAN RUN ETHICAL BUSINESS.

WE ONLY SELL VEGAN PRODUCTS THAT ARE TOTALLY CRUELTY FREE INCLUDING ANY PARENT COMPANIES. NONE OF THE BRANDS WE RETAIL SELL IN CHINA EITHER WHERE IT IS THE LAW TO TEST ON ANIMALS.*

ALL PRODUCTS WE SELL ARE ALSO NATURAL AND FREE OF ANY HARMFUL INGREDIENTS.

Ultimately it is our mission to make it easy for anyone to purchase high quality animal friendly products that have a positive impact on the planet. Find out how we do this below.

Cruelty Free

As a business we have a very strict policy on animal testing. As ethical vegans we do not buy any products from companies that have animal testing parents. Ever.

If any of the brands we sell are sold to an animal testing company, we will simply sell the stock of theirs we hold and stop selling them. No exceptions. Even if it is our favourite lipstick, cleanser or body scrub. If this situation ever occurs we will notify all customers of changes to the particular brands cruelty free status.

Similarly we do not sell any brands that sell products in China where it is the law to test on animals.*

* The law regarding testing on animals in China is slowly changing. However there are still beauty products such as hair dye that are still required by law to be tested on animals. We will continue to monitor this situation and only sell products that are not tested on animals anywhere in the world.

Trust in Greener Beauty and leave all the hard work and research to us!

Ethical Products

All products sold by Greener Beauty are tested first by Vic and the rest of the team at Greener Beauty. Sometimes lucky family and friends also get to help with the testing. One of our aims is to ensure that all products we sell are effective and a sensory pleasure to use. Vic has super sensitive skin as well, so if the product is good for her delicate skin it will also be good for most people!

As well as being vegan and cruelty free all the products sold by Greener Beauty are clean and free of harmful chemicals. If you would like to read more about the chemicals we avoid please click here.

We aim to have product options for every price point and whether plastic free or not. Vegan, cruelty free and natural products should be attainable for all! If you are looking for something in particular please let us know and we will do our best to source it for you.

Trees

Greener Beauty plants a tree for every single order placed online.

We also plant 15 trees per month for each employee of Greener Beauty which negates the carbon footprint of each member of staff. And 50 trees per month to negate the carbon footprint of the actual website.

We are working hard to ensure that the only impact Greener Beauty has on the planet is a positive one.

🌳 🌳 🌳 Our Current Tree Count as of 30th September 2021 is 7,795 trees. 🌳 🌳 🌳

🌳 🌳 🌳 A Greener Beauty forest is literally growing as we speak! 🌳 🌳 🌳

Order Packaging

We now by default offer a zero waste packaging with either brown paper or if what you have ordered is breakable your goodies will be protected by compostable and fully biodegradable corn-starch packing peanuts.

We still offer our Eco Luxury packaging but this is now an option that you can select at checkout. However please note that this is now only available on orders over £15.

If what you have ordered is a gift, we also offer a free gift wrapping service which can be selected at checkout. We also have a selection of Greetings Cards that we can hand write a message in for you.

We are frequently asked what we use for packaging. We send out all orders in a brown cardboard box (only brown as white is bleached and has an environmental impact). The contents are then in tissue paper with shredded paper for protection. Everything used in the packaging is 100% recyclable, even down to the brown paper tape.

Printed delivery notes with your order are optional to save paper. If you would would like a delivery note make sure you complete the full check out process rather than the PayPal Checkout Now option. You can then check the box to notify us of your choice. Email delivery notes are send with every order.

You can read more and see examples of our packaging here.

Free Samples

We have all been there. You brought a pot of cream, the reviews were great and you were excited to try it. Only to find out that it didn’t work for you at all and that its a total waste of money and cream. We aim to help stop this with our free samples.

You can select what free samples you would like to try! There are plastic free options which are clearly labelled as such. These can be added to your basket from the cart screen. The number of samples you can add to your basket is based on your spend.

SPEND UNDER £30 CHOOSE 1 FREE SAMPLE.

SPEND £30 – £50 – CHOOSE 2 FREE SAMPLES

SPEND £50 – £75 – CHOOSE 3 FREE SAMPLES

SPEND £75 – £100 – CHOOSE 4 FREE SAMPLES

SPEND £100+ – CHOOSE 5 FREE SAMPLES AND GET A FREE ORGANIC COTTON GREENER BEAUTY MAKEUP BAG

Foundation Samples

Similarly we have all tried foundations in store to get home and find the colour is not a good match at all. Or purchased online what we thought was the right shade only to receive it and find its completely wrong! For this reason we offer a sample size foundation samples for most of the foundations we sell.

These samples are a flat price of £1.50 whatever the brand and foundation that covers the cost and they are sent in a plastic free aluminium pot.

We selected a 10ml aluminium pots because they can be washed out after use and reused for another purpose or alternatively are fully recyclable. Please note that these sample pots are not full, if they were we would need to charge a lot more for the samples!

You can browse the foundations here.

Plastic Free

Greener Beauty is not currently a plastic free shop. Greener Beauty is about making life easier for vegans without having to check products, brands, cruelty free status, parent companies cruelty free status, ingredients for animal products, ingredients for harmful ingredients, reef safe if suntan lotion etc. And this is exactly what we do, we make it easier for you to shop safely without having to worry or spend too much time googling.

PLANT A TREE

For every Greener Beauty customer order we plant one tree. This is part of our ongoing effort to lower our carbon footprint and build a better world. We work with an American Charity called Eden Reforestation who plant trees globally where they are most needed. They hire, train and employ local people at a fair wage who then plant trees native to their land and protect the seedlings and eventually the forests. As a result of their careful nurturing they have an 80% seedling survival rate. This gives the local people a consistent income enabling them to provide for their families, and as the reforestation effort goes on, healthy forests emerge and the negative effects of deforestation disappear. Since Eden Reforestation began over 250 million trees have been planted around the world in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique. To further negate the carbon footprint of Greener Beauty HQ we also plant 15 trees a month per member of staff. Always ethical. Always vegan. Always Greener Beauty.
