5 Celebrities Leading the Green Beauty Movement

Today’s post is for fun! I’m detailing the top 5 celebs leading the green beauty movement. A while back I did a post on ads with celebrities and it received a great response! The article made you wonder…when celebrities endorse a product, do they really know what’s in it and do they even care?

 

When it comes to green beauty products, are celebs today promoting their use just because it’s the “hip” thing to do or do they truly believe in the safety of the products? I tend to believe they actually do care about the ingredients and are not just jumping on the green beauty band wagon. In fact, I think it’s a wonderful thing for famous people to bring the spotlight to the toxicity of cosmetics.

So here’s my list of the top 5 stars leading the green beauty movement in their own little way.

Cameron Diaz is a green beauty chick!

1. One of the most “green” celebs you’ll find is Cameron Diaz. Most everyone knows she was one of the first to get a Prius (and I was the second…lol!) But where does she stack up when it comes to beauty? Well, Ms. Diaz prefers to maintain her beauty using natural and organic cosmetics. Cameron says “the main secret preventing the appearance of wrinkles and acne is drinking enough water every day, sleep well, and using organic cosmetic products.” One of her favorite brands is ColorScience, who make mineral cosmetics and skin products.

Alicia Silverstone just launched her own organic cosmetics line with Juice Beauty.

2. What is a list like this without Alicia Silverstone? She’s a strong vegan, environmentalist, and has now set her sights on chemical free beauty. She’s founded her own eco-friendly line for Juice Beauty. The new line includes 5 assorted products, such as cleanser and lip color. Silverstone says of her new line: “When you’re a person who cares about the ingredients like I do, it’s really exciting. The products are all natural, organic and cruelty free. They use avocado, shea butter, sesame seed, sunflower seeds, aloe and fresh juices.” She also has her own green and eco site, The Kind Life.

Jessica Alba is a green mommy.

3. Jessica Alba used to be someone who promoted and used brands like Revlon…but things changed when she became a mom and realized she didn’t want to use toxic ingredients on herself or her baby. That spurred her to found The Honest Company, a baby product subscription service whose “products are made with the safest ingredients for your entire family.” Jessica is even a DIY-er, mixing her own body oil but loves Vapour Organic beauty when she wants to glam it up.

Rachel McAdams launched greenissexy.org

4. Rachel McAdams has been an environmentalist since she was young. She’s even partnered with 2 eco-conscious friends to start the website, Greenissexy.org to help “spread the word to all sorts of people and really make a difference” She is not just talking the talk, she’s also walking the walk. One of her favorite spots to shop for organic beauty products is Saffron Rouge.

5. Back in 2009, Cowboys & Aliens star Olivia Wilde graced the cover of the premier issue of Organic Beauty Magazine (which I do believe is now unfortunately, defunct.) She says, “it’s unnecessary to sacrifice your health with what you’re putting on your body.” In the article, she gives wonderful tips on how to go green with your beauty routine without breaking the bank. One of her (and my) preferred organic brands is Eminence.

 

Now that more celebrities are endorsing and publicizing green beauty, this will bring more attention to it’s benefits and hopefully call more attention to WHY we choose to use these products.

 

Now it’s your turn!

 

Did I leave anyone off the list who you feel deserves a spot? Why do you choose organic beauty products over conventional? Comment using Facebook or the comment form below.

    Great list! It’s funny, the first person who comes to mind for me is always Alicia Silverstone. She has done such a great job marrying her image, lifestyle and celebrity to the green movement. I also love that you pointed out how Jessica Alba used to be a Revlon girl and now has changed her mindset completely after having a kid — makes you do a double take! Thanks for the fun post :)

    I’m at a loss for this one. I don’t typically follow celebs so this is all news to me. Although, I’m not real surprised by Cameron Diaz making the list.

    I’ve been lucky enough to try some fab skin care of late and have to admit I adore Raw Gaia and Inlight – I have found they do my skin the world good :).

    Alicia’s collection sounds pretty amazing!

    I expected Alicia Silverstone in the list! She’s very passionate about healthy living. I think Miranda Kerr also deserves a spot there. She started a natural beauty brand in Australia in between modeling jobs and before she had a baby. :)

    It is nice to know that a lot of celebrities are joining the green beauty movement. After all, with their powers of convincing, they may be able to get more women and men to join in.

    But, what about hair color? All of the above women change their hair color often, wish they talked about/ or we could find a chemical free alternative, seems like this will be the next frontier after face makeup…hair color, so toxic. Possibly more henna blends and tea-based color.

    Hi Viola,

    You are so right! Hair color is a tough one because even the supposedly “organic” ones contain unsavory chemicals…it will take some serious analysis to invent a totally safe hair dye (and henna is cool, but it doesn’t work for light hair…)

    If we could include male celebrities I would definitely say George Clooney. That man doesn’t look as good as he does by using toxic products! I recently discovered a boutique line of organic body butters, and body balms by Ezensa Skin Care. Their Cocoa Shea body butter is working miracles on my skin and their customer service is amazing.

    Hi Sonia,

    That’d be an awesome idea for a post on green male celebrities! Thanks for sharing about the body butters. I must give that a look up!

    I must get my wife to read your amazing article. I was unaware of the chemical issue.
