Blue Beauty: Revolutionizing Skincare for a Healthier Planet

Blue Beauty

What is Blue Beauty?

Imagine a world where your beauty routine not only enhances your natural glow but also contributes to the health of our planet. Welcome to Blue Beauty, a groundbreaking global movement initiated by a visionary Beauty Heroes founder, Jeannie Jarnot, in 2018. Blue Beauty celebrates beauty brands dedicated to making the planet better and acknowledges the conscious consumers and early supporters driving this positive change. This movement inspires beauty and personal care brands to make a significant impact through innovation, sustainability, transparency, and social responsibility.

The Concept

Think of Blue Beauty as a vibrant wave within the broader Green Beauty movement. While Green Beauty champions clean, sustainably sourced ingredients, Blue Beauty dives deeper, focusing on the protection of our precious waters and marine life. It’s about more than just ingredients; it’s about the entire lifecycle of beauty products, from sustainable sourcing to the impact of packaging on our oceans.

Here’s what sets Blue Beauty apart:

  • Refillable and Reusable Packaging: Opt for beauty products with packaging that can be refilled or creatively repurposed.
  • Recycling Initiatives: Support brands and retailers that encourage returning packaging for recycling.
  • Use of Recycled Materials: Choose products with packaging made from recycled materials to reduce carbon footprints.

As Chin, WWF UK’s Sustainable Materials Specialist, eloquently puts it, “The key is to identify beauty products where the packaging is refillable or reusable for another purpose; support brand and retailer initiatives who encourage the return of packaging for recycling purposes, and ensure that where packaging is unavoidable, it contains recycled materials as this can reduce the overall carbon impact.”

The Principles

To be considered part of the Blue Beauty movement, brands must embody the following principles:

  • Sustainable Ingredient Sourcing: Use non-GMO, organic, wild-harvested ingredients.
  • Eco-friendly Packaging: Embrace minimal outer packaging or use biodegradable, upcycled, or reusable materials.
  • Carbon Neutrality: Achieve certified carbon-neutral status.
  • Plastic Negativity: Commit to being plastic negative with transparent supply chains.
  • Local Sourcing: Collaborate with local farmers and suppliers.
  • Sustainable Shipping Materials: Utilize donated or recycled packing materials.
  • Recycling Programs: Offer customer-facing recycling programs and smart returns donation programs.
  • Investment in Green Technologies: Allocate R&D budgets to green technologies and engage in cause-based giving campaigns.

The Takeaway 

Blue Beauty is more than a trend; it’s a revolution in the beauty industry. By prioritizing the health of our oceans and marine life alongside traditional environmental concerns, Blue Beauty brands are paving the way for a sustainable future. When you choose to join this movement, you’re not just enhancing your beauty routine—you’re making a powerful statement for the health of our planet. Let’s make every skincare choice count towards a healthier, more beautiful world.
