Let’s talk about beauty products. The beauty floors of department stores like Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman are flooded with high-end brands that everyone knows. However, in recent years the demand for cruelty-free, natural and clean products has increased exponentially. Luckily, there’s no shortage of alternative beauty brands and stores in New York. Here are our favorites.

“The largest, non-toxic, clean beauty store on the planet,” Credo Beauty is a haven for those obsessed with clean beauty products.

If you’re getting started with clean and non-toxic beauty products, this should be your first stop.
Location: 430 W Broadway, New York, NY 10012
Winky Lux is a fun, colorful and playful brand that worships poodles. Why? Because poodles are the epitome of canine beauty and grooming — and that’s what they strive to become. Furthermore, their products are quite unique. For example, their Flower Balm is a transparent lip balm that combines with your natural pH to create your own pink hue. Plus, it contains a real chrysanthemum inside! If you don’t know this brand, you should.
