The clean beauty movement has taken the beauty world by storm over the past few years, and it doesn’t show any sign of stopping. It’s driven in part by us: We’re more discerning about what we spend our money on and more educated about the ingredients in our formulas. Increasingly, we’re not willing to settle for controversial ingredients, including parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and artificial fragrances (none of which you’ll find in the products below).
Celebrities and influencers alike have taken up the cause, leading brands and retailers to follow suit. (See Sephora’s Clean Beauty seal and clean-only leaders like Credo Beauty and Follain.) What that means for you: not only clean formulas, but those that offer real payoff without compromise. Discover the Glamour Beauty Award–winning, best clean beauty products of 2020 that’ll simplify your routine—whether you’re a full-on green queen or just looking to go one step cleaner.
