I love the idea of clean beauty, but I find all of the terminology a bit confusing since there are so many buzzwords smacked on product packaging with little regulation here in the U.S. Natural, organic, non-toxic, clean, etc. can mean different things to each brand. So, before adding brands to this list, I took the time to read through each company’s mission statement and ingredients list to ensure they lined up.
Essentially, “clean beauty” means that the line is generally non-toxic, environmentally conscious, and uses plant-based ingredients. I am a firm believer in balance, but I also understand that making the switch to clean products can be a budget buster, so if you find one product you want to switch, fantastic. If you don’t, that’s fine too!
I may love beauty, but I am not an expert on the clean beauty space. I am still learning just like the rest of you. Next time you have a product empty, try replacing it with a product from one of these clean-beauty businesses.
1. Klur Skincare
Hello! ⠀ I would like to introduce myself to everyone new here. I’m Lesley Thornton, a licensed esthetician and the founder of Klur.co ⠀ Klur is an eco-inclusive skin and personal care brand based in Los Angeles, CA. ⠀ I started Klur as a facial studio, and for nearly a decade, I specialized in natural and non-toxic facial treatments. I learned that the best results were achieved when nature and science were combined to work in harmony. ⠀ With expert training and hands-on experience, I was able to document the effects of various ingredients and formulations on diverse skin. Unknowingly, I was gathering research data for the product line, which was the foundation of what Klur has become today. ⠀ While I’m no longer treating clients, my sole focus is continuing to create products, so that I can reach more people who can experience the same level of results and enjoyment through our formulations. ⠀ I am thrilled to continue to share and build with you all, and I have many things in the works for the future. ⠀ -Lesley ~ @susannekindt
I have used Klur since February, and it is now one of my favorite brands of all time. The packaging is luxe (and sustainable), and the products just work. Among my favorites are the Gentle Matter daily cleanser, which doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin, and the Elements of Comfort body oil that I apply before bed when I feel anxious or can’t sleep.

Ilia beauty was also introduced to me this year. Their silicone-free, fragrance-free, oil-free, non-comedogenic skin tint made me trade in my tried-and-true tinted moisturizer. I think their color range could use some diversifying, but with their recent commitment to Pull Up For Change, I hope we see some changes soon.

Ranavat is a small but mighty line of skin and hair care products inspired by Ayurvedic beauty rituals. Many products in this line are made with anti-inflammatory ingredients like turmeric root, rose, and saffron, which is a plus for any skin type. My go-to product is the Radiant Rani Illuminating Botanical Serum because it lives up to its name.
