4. Eco-labelling trend


A growing number of brands are looking at eco-labels to display their green / ethical credentials. Natural & organic labels are the most established, however a raft of new labelling schemes have been introduced in the last few years.

The most recent is the UEBT Certified Sourcing With Respect, introduced in June 2018, with Weleda and Natura Brasil the first adopters.

Others, like Allergy Certified are making headway in Europe, and Non-GMO project Verified is gaining popularity in North America.

Some schemes (like Non-GMO) are crossing over from the food industry; these include Fairtrade, Vegan, and Gluten-Free.

3. Green formulations


This major trend is continuing whereby cosmetic brands are replacing contentious synthetic chemicals with green or safer alternatives.

We are seeing more brands making ‘free-from’ claims on product packs, with products marketed as clean beauty.

A growing number of retailers are capitalising on this development. One example is Credo Beauty in the US, having seven ‘clean beauty’ stores in the US.

In recent months, Sephora has also introduced a clean beauty section in its American retailers that feature brands without contentious synthetic chemicals.
