1. What initially sparked your interest in ethical products? 

I actually took a class on environmental science while in my last year of university! It was totally unrelated to my course of study, but it taught me a lot about better ways to produce everything from beauty products to food. The information I gathered has helped me make decisions on the products I use every day.

2. When you first started incorporating ethical products into your routine, what kind of changes did you notice?

I love this question! I noticed several changes when I started this journey, but overall I would say that I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how well products can still work without incorporating more negative production practices. I started really caring about the health of my hair around the time I made this change, and my hair is longer and stronger than it’s been in years, thanks in part to Burgati’s leave-in conditioner!

3. What is the most difficult part about buying ethically? Do you have any tips that make it easier?

Unfortunately, buying ethically means you have to pay a lot of attention to the labels on products, and the practices of various brands. Sometimes it means saying goodbye to a brand you previously loved. It requires a conscious effort, but there are many amazing online resources sharing the practices of various beauty brands. If you’re just starting this journey, I recommend searching the web for natural and cruelty free beauty blogs and YouTube channels. They are so helpful!

4. We love that you not only promote ethical beauty products, but ethical fashion as well! What are a few your favorite places to find ethically made clothing?

There are so many amazing clothing shops with equally amazing ethics policies! A few of my favorites include Everlane, People Tree, Reformation, and Eileen Fisher.

5. What is the most important thing you look for in ethical products (e.g. no parabens, no animal testing, etc.)?
When it comes to beauty products, it’s important to me that the brand does not test on animals. I am just now starting to learn more about the issue in all of its complexities, but for me, it’s just unnecessary and often times cruel. I love that there are so many amazing brands that don’t test on animals, like Burgati!
