All products follow The Beautyologie Standard, meaning that they are ethically sourced, follow fair trade principles and are cruelty-free.

A few brands offered on the website include:

  • Shea Yeleen shea butter products are formulated with raw shea butter produced by a cooperative of women in Ghana, and the company pays these women five times the countries' living wage.

  • 700 Rivers soaps are hand-crafted by Bangladeshi artisans that have escaped human trafficking and are now steadily employed.

  • Tierra & Lava in Guatemala builds relationships with the farmers who produce its product ingredients and financially supports them so they can carry on the legacy of their disappearing traditional Mayan practices.
