We must cherish our Earth every day, not just once a year. Nonetheless, let Earth Day on April 22, 2022 be your entry ticket to what's changed in the progressive effort toward Earth-conscious economies, technologies and energy solutions. Yuty was created to address the seemingly incongruous aims of sustainability and beauty consumerism. Yet Yuty's users have discovered that using less in one's beauty regime, and using only products that are created with sustainable ethics, is even more beneficial for the skin, body, hair and mind. Let's learn more about how a few easy adjustments in the way you shop can create ripples of change.
Discover independent ethical brands
When you look into effective sustainability roadmaps, your understanding of caring for the earth expands. Consumers are one part of a giant chain, with each link having a varied sustainability impact. Corporations play an enormous role—when operated without a sustainable vision, they leave gigantic carbon footprints, and lobby national governments for further resource extraction, while simultaneously influencing public trends to promote wasteful or toxic production. Today, many independent brands, founded by conscious individuals with ethics, recognise the imbalance of power at the hands of large corporations. They are determined to focus on what's right for the earth and for people.
These brands recently joined Yuty. We were impressed by their attention to simplicity, cruelty-free production, natural active ingredients, or the desire to give back to sustainable causes.
MASAMI was founded by James Hammett, a beauty industry maven with 25+ years of experience, and Lynn Power, a longtime ad agency executive with a love for beauty. Previously, both co-founders have worked on major brands, such as Gillette Venus, Clinique and L'Oréal. In 2010, James decided to help models frustrated by the damage continuously done to their hair. This was the beginning of MASAMI's botanical formulations with the signature ingredient: Mekabu powder. MASAMI products are cruelty-free and formulated without parabens, sulphates and phthalates.
Mariana, a herbalist and natural skincare formulator, is the Founder of Herbes Folles. After giving birth to her daughter, she decided to study again; herbalism and cosmetic formulation, two universes she felt close to for a long time. With weeds, she found focus. Herbes Folles was funded out of the desire to honour wild, rebellious plants, using their medicinal properties to nourish the skin. Herbes Folles is a unique weeds-based skincare brand, made to help achieve beautiful skin and to celebrate nature’s power and resilience. Herbes Folles creates products that perform more than one function. Beauty should be simple. NATRUE certified, vegan, palm-oil free, Herbes Folles is also a member of 1% for the Planet.
Zaffrin and Brian, owners and founders of Five Dot Botanics, didn’t set out to start a skincare revolution, only to shake up the skincare industry's status quo by asking why it had to be so complicated? Why did products need so many ingredients? Why did we need so many products? Five Dot Botanics stand for fewer ingredient skincare, which they believe is the key to healthy skin. They’re an independent British brand, who work with a highly experienced British formulation team, and have a British manufacturer. In a world that always seems to be saying "buy more", they say, "let's buy less but better." Think of it as a quiet rebellion, a minimalist revolution. Five Dot Botanics is Plant-Based, Vegan, Natural, Palm Oil Free, Cruelty-Free and British Made.
Never waste a drop
To do your part for the environment, fast beauty practices need to come to an end. Beautiful packaging may never lose its grip on your eyes and your heart, but trade the short-lived pleasure by looking at what's inside the bottle instead. When shopping for beauty sustainably, your goal is to see how the product can be used to its fullest—never wasting a drop—while helping you reach your goals as efficiently as possible.
Yuty in the form of Advisors for Skin, Hair, Body, Fragrance and Makeup uses deep learning algorithms to identify your needs and match you to the perfect products. This means less packaging wasted, a smaller carbon footprint, more money in your pocket, and far less frustration. To experience what it's like to only use curated products from this day onward, just #AskYuty. No more trial and error!
Choose Products That are Multipurpose or Long-lasting
It turns out one of the easiest ways to be sustainable is simply to use every drop, replenish less frequently, and not let things expire. Use products that can last you a long time, or can be conveniently used in multiple parts of your regime. As an example, the typical shelf life of unrefined shea butter is about 24 months or 2 years from the date of manufacture and packaging—and it can be used all over your body. With more multi-purpose products in your regime, you vastly trim down your beauty consumption, generating less waste.
