Certified Fair Trade Makeup from 3 Brands

Certified Fair Trade Makeup from 3 Brands

We focus a lot on the safety of animals when it comes to the products we use, but we also have to think about our fellow humans, brothers and sisters that farm, manufacture or hand-make the items we love.

What does fair trade mean exactly?

A basic definition of fair trade is the practice of buying goods directly from producers in developing countries at a fair price.

The Fair Trade certification in the US has rigorous fair trade standards, which drive income sustainability, community and individual well-being, empowerment, and environmental stewardship.

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.

- Fair Trade UK

These brands honestly have the only fair trade makeup I could find. I’d love if you shared this with a friend and made fair trade makeup the popular choice, just like cruelty-free! Protected people and protected animals. 💜
