8 Clean Beauty Brands At Sephora You’ll Fall In Love With
Sephora is a French multinational retailer that offers thousands of beauty products. With such a wide selection of products available, it can be hard to know which ones are right for you and your unique skincare needs. Not to mention, shopping for clean beauty products can be especially tricky because each brand defines clean beauty differently.
The Clean at Sephora program makes it easier for buyers to identify products that align with the store’s clean beauty guidelines. Honestly, this program is super helpful. Especially if you’re like me and you take care to avoid any ingredients that could cause skin irritation or an autoimmune flare-up. With that in mind, I’m sharing a round-up of my favorite clean beauty brands that are available at Sephora.
8 Best Clean Beauty Brands At Sephora
ILIA Beauty is a leader in the clean beauty movement, with dozens of clean, conscious, award-winning beauty products. Their products combine skincare and makeup to protect your skin from environmental stressors. Every ILIA product is made without gluten, parabens, phthalates, petroleum, mineral oil, talc, BHA/BHT, propylene glycol, PEG, cyclomethicones, and chemical screens.
Plus, their sustainable packaging is made of recycled materials that won’t just get thrown into a landfill when you’re done using them. ILIA is cruelty-free and certified by Leaping Bunny.
One of my favorite ILIA products is the Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil. It’s made with hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate your lips, as well as salicornia herbacea extract and meadowfoam seed oil to lock in moisture and make your lips look smooth and supple.
LAWLESS Beauty describes their products as “CLEAN AF,” which means they’re made without potentially toxic ingredients and many known skin irritants. Annie Lawless founded Lawless Beauty out of a need for cleaner, more effective formulations. She has lived with auto-immune issues (like me!) and wanted products that she could use that were free of harmful additives.
The Forget the Filler Lip-Plumping Line-Smoothing Tinted Lip Balm from Lawless is currently one of my go-to lip balms.
MILK Makeup is a cosmetics and skincare company based in New York City. Despite its name, MILK is 100% vegan (also like me!). Every aspect of the MILK Makeup line is developed at Milk Studios in downtown NYC. The brand’s philosophy is admirable: good ingredients are used in effective formulas to create easy-to-use, clean makeup that’s 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free.
MERIT Beauty stands out for its holistic approach to clean beauty. They strive to make products that are safe for your body, your skin, and the planet.
All MERIT skin care products are EU and Clean at Sephora compliant. They formulate skincare products using high-quality, clean ingredients like plant-based squalane, vitamin B5, and antioxidants. Their skincare products are free from 73 ingredients that are potentially acne-triggering.
MERIT is cruelty-free and certified by Leaping Bunny. Their shipment packaging is recyclable, reusable, or biodegradable.
Amika is another one of the best clean beauty brands at Sephora. There’s so much to love about this hair care brand.
Amika products are not only highly effective, but they’re free from sulfates, parabens, aluminum starch, and over 1,300 potentially harmful ingredients. The brand is also Leaping Bunny and vegan certified.
Amika is also a remarkable green company. Their packaging is 100% recyclable. Plus, as of 2022, Amika stopped producing bottles with 100% virgin plastic and began producing plastic bottles that use up to 90% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics.
One of my favorite hair care products is the Soulfood Nourishing Hair Mask from Amika.
Summer Fridays is another vegan, cruelty-free, Clean at Sephora skincare brand. Every Summer Fridays product is free from parabens and sulfates, plus they use recyclable packaging.
My go-to Summer Fridays project is the Jet Lag Mask. The Jet Lag Mask was actually Summer Fridays’ very first product! It’s an award-winning, one-of-a-kind hydrating cream face mask that can double as a moisturizer, eye cream, and hand cream. It works on all skin types to hydrate, firm, and plump your skin for a healthier, more youthful, and glowing appearance.
Westman Atelier is a top-rated, clean beauty brand that makes luxurious makeup using clean ingredients. They strive to offer perfect shades of makeup in buttery-soft textures.
The Face Trace Cream Contour Stick from Westman Atelier is a perfect example of what you can expect from this brand. It’s my go-to contour stick because it effortlessly glides onto my cheekbones, eyelids, and jawline for a natural sculpting effect. Plus, it’s made from plant-based ingredients.
Another one of my favorite Clean at Sephora beauty brands is Kosas. Kosas has earned a reputation for producing makeup that’s easy to use and clinically proven to make your skin look and feel better. Each product is made with minimal ingredients and is free from common, potentially harmful ingredients like silicones.
Every Kosas product undergoes clinical safety testing to ensure it’s gentle enough to use on sensitive skin. My favorite Kosas product from Sephora is the Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer and Daytime Eye Cream.
Thanks to Clean at Sephora, it’s easier than ever to find brands and products that are right for you.
