How to Clean Up Your Beauty Routine, According to Sephora


As beauty-conscious consumers, we don't always have an easy time deciphering what ingredients are going into our beauty products, what they actually mean, and whether or not we really need them in our routines. Luckily, Sephora's Clean category is here to empower us in our product options.

Over the categories of skincare, makeup, haircare, and fragrance, Sephora has now added their seal of approval (or “Clean Seal”) on specific products that are free from ingredients on their “no” list, such as sulfates, parabens, and coal tar, to name but a few. The list of banned ingredients was determined by industry insights, client feedback, and a sustainability team, to provide us with a clearer vision of the beauty products bursting with powerful ingredients that we actually want, minus the ingredients we may not.

So if you're ready to clean up your beauty routine, shop some of our favorite “clean” beauty products-from skincare to haircare-that have the Sephora seal of approval.
