Gift Set from Beautyologie

When shopping for Mother’s Day, we all know to look for products that are clean, sustainable and cruelty-free. But as conscious and well-meaning as we try to be, do we ever ask about Who made our beauty products, and if they were treated fairly?

Fair Trade practices put people and the planet first. They help create solutions to issues including the overuse of natural resources, women’s empowerment, refugee livelihoods, human rights, inequality and sustainable farming.

Fair Trade Enterprises support organic agriculture, adopt circular economy production processes, generate new models of social enterprise and create new ways to champion the dignity of workers, farmers, artisans and communities around the world.

From radiance-inducing face oils handcrafted by Peruvian artisans to microbiome-restoring elixirs formulated with the help of female cooperatives in Ghana, Beautyologie puts humanity at the forefront of the beauty industry.
