As sustainability becomes one of the biggest challenges our society faces, consumers are demanding that brands take environmental responsibility. One way the beauty industry is tackling this is by reducing packaging through naked or refillable options. As consumers become increasingly educated about sustainability, they are also demanding greater transparency about the environmental impact of the formulations themselves. The renewable carbon index is becoming more important as an objective metric to assess how renewable the carbon sources are behind the ingredients. New niche brands are also using recycled ingredients such as used coffee grounds and tea leaves in skin care formulations.
