What can’t you find on Etsy these days? The online marketplace of handmade goods offers everything from the perfect 1940s fashion finds for a Katherine Hepburn look to planters made out of reclaimed shoes, and it’s a great source of lovingly crafted organic beauty products, too. Artisans around the world mix up tinted lip balm, facial oils, perfumes, bath salts and other personal care items using vegan, organic and environmentally friendly ingredients. Here are seven notable natural beauty shops on Etsy.
Totally vegan, handcrafted in small batches and made with eco-friendly and organically sourced ingredients, Naked Eye Beauty’s beautiful selection of personal care products includes bath soaks, lip balm, facial cleansers, mineral makeup and more. Try three of Naked Eye’s most popular products with the ‘Best of NEB Bundle,’ which includes hair powder in your choice of color, rose tinted lip balm and herbal deodorant cream.
Herbivore Botanicals offers a range of 100% natural, vegan bath and beauty products hand-crafted in small batches using no artificial colors or fragrances, animal products, parabens, SLS or chemical preservatives. Bamboo charcoal soap, rose lip balm, pink clay floral face mask, sea salt hair spray and coconut milk bath soak are among the goodies you can get from this Seattle-based business.
With a wide range of rich and dramatic colors, Crush Cosmetics is a great source of mineral makeup on Etsy. Their products are free of parabens, silicones, fragrances and phthalates, with no nano or micronized ingredients. Many items are vegan-friendly.
