Thank you to Sephora for sponsoring this post! Today on Instagram, I posted an IGTV showing how to properly cleanse skin using the double cleanse method.
Double cleansing removes every trace of makeup, spf, and sebum so that all of your gorgeous products are able to really absorb. It removes dirt and oil but also pollution that may have landed on our skin. You can watch my IGTV HERE.
I used two of my favorite cleansers! Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm, and Whipped Greens: oil-free foaming cleanser with moringa and papaya. Farmacy has just earned Sephora’s new seal- Clean + Planet Positive. The Balm melts away every trace and has papaya enzyme to naturally exfoliate and the foaming cleanser has green clay to detox.
Clean + Planet Positive is a brand new category that makes it easy for us to see what brands are committed to eco-conscious standards.
This seal is not just given to anyone- Sephora’s standards are rigorous and only a few brands have received the seal so far:
- Sephora Collection
- Youth to the People
- Tata Harper
Here are Sephora’s Tenets for Clean + Planet Positive:
- Clean Ingredients: Made without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and more
- Responsible packaging
- Sustainable Sourcing
- Climate Commitment
- Environmental Giving (this tenant is what will be unique by brand- each brand gives back in their own way)
These Clean + Planet Positive brands are not perfect but are on a journey of being less harmful to the planet. I feel the same way about myself- it is a journey in the right direction!
