The world is seeing a lot of innovation when it comes to the natural beauty market and is currently valued at 11 billion dollars! It's a great way to help out the world but don't fret, you'll still get the same beautiful results you'd expect. Eco-expert Candice Batista reveals her favourite green beauty innovations you need to know about right now. 

Graydon FullMoon Serum

If you have sensitive skin, retinol can be irritating and cause more harm than good. Graydon is a Canadian brand and their Fullmoon serum is loaded with botanical retinol, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Overtime it'll help prevent aging and is great for all skin types. The natural ingredients are also great for protecting your skin against pollutions in the air.

Peppermint Shave Bar

Aerosol cans are nearly impossible to properly recycle so going with a shave bar is a great innovative option! It has natural ingredients like cooling peppermint, cocoa, shea butter and more. Plus since it's made with no packaging you don't have to worry about creating more garbage. You can also go to Rocky Mountain Soap Co. and cut your own piece from a giant slab they keep in store!

Natural Shampoo Bar with Rosemary

Save on packaging by using a shampoo bar that doesn't have any packaging (except for a paper sleeve which is recyclable). The bar itself is made with natural ingredients like rosemary oil, castor oil, and organic shea butter. It's also perfect for going on vacation or taking with you to the gym! All you have to do is run the bar under soap, lather it up and apply all over your hair.

Smart Day Cream for Temperate Climates

The world is filled with toxins and pollution that aren't exactly the best for you skin. But this innovative moisturizer actually helps your skin adjust to the climate. This formula is made for when the weather is more mild and normal, not too hot or cold. Spring is the best time to use it!

Prebiotix Hydrating Gel Moisturizer

We’ve heard of probiotics for the gut, but soon you'll start to see products with it for your skin! Many people have sensitive skin so it's important to know what's going on your face. Juice Beauty's gel moisturizer contains high-performance prebiotic ingredients that help soothe distressed skin. Since it's a gel-moisturizer it'll also be perfect for the summer or for warmer days.
