Nowadays, more and more people are making efforts to embrace an eco-friendly lifestyle. Switching to this way of living takes a lot of dedication and planning but it’s all for a good cause—to improve the quality of your life and help save the planet. Becoming more conscious about your consumption may sound a bit complicated but it’s really not! Taking small steps and doing them consistently can have a good, long-lasting impact.
You can start by making more conscious choices when you shop. With SM Store’s Green Finds, it’s now easier to shop for eco-friendly products that are made from natural ingredients and help support local communities. Just spot the items with the Green Finds labels to help you pick items that promote the well-being of communities and the planet.
If you’re thinking of switching to Clean Beauty, now’s the perfect time. Since the popularity of this movement, more brands have chosen to remove known harmful chemicals in their products.
Not only are they made without all the bad stuff you need to avoid, but they are also just as effective as the ones you are used to.
This is where SM Store’s Green Finds comes into play. In this initiative, we work together with suppliers that are taking steps towards green practices to make more green options for customers. We highlight specialty brands that offer a wide variety of natural, eco-friendly, and locally sourced products.

Over 1,200 sustainable and eco-friendly products are now curated at your favorite SM Stores nationwide and Shop SM site and are easier to spot with their Green Finds labels. Each product is made sure to meet the three main pillars of clean beauty.
Clean Beauty: Clean And Safe For You
Choose brands that responsibly create products with your well-being and the environment in mind. At SM Store, you can find clean and safe beauty staples that deliver real results. Behind these are brands that put great care into making products that advocate for a green lifestyle.
One such brand is Luxe Organix which uses plant-based ingredients to make better and safer options for you. Their number one priority is achieving healthier skin and hair so they strive to create advanced and effective formulations, resulting in quality products that are budget-friendly This makes Luxe Organix’s beauty and personal care products stand out from the rest.
Another brand that’s taking steps to embrace a more sustainable way of shopping is Head and Shoulders. In an effort to help save the environment and lessen plastic waste, they have introduced refill pouches for their shampoos. By reducing their manufacturing impact and carbon footprint, they commit to achieving 100% recyclable or reusable packaging by 2030.
Better Ingredients: With Ethically Sourced Ingredients
Discover a collection of beauty products that use environment-friendly formulations and are made with sustainable production practices. Aside from making sure that ingredients are safe for consumption, they are also acquired ethically and sustainably while ensuring a fair and safe working environment for all the people involved in the production process.
A prime example of this practice is Aveeno. This brand works with farmers from different countries to source and process natural ingredients in a way that preserves their purity and maintains beneficial properties for the skin. All this is done in an environmentally conscientious manner
Clean & Clear is also one well-known brand that sets a high standard for using ingredients. Its commitment to developing sustainable products helps support the health of its customers and reduces environmental impact.
For UV care, choose a brand that also cares for the environment. Anessa’s range of sunscreen products is proven to be safe for you and the ocean. It does not contain harmful ingredients like parabens, artificial fragrances, colorants, and coral bleaching chemicals like Octinoxate and Oxybenzone.
Even popular brands like Cream Silk are now looking to nature to find hair solutions for their customers. They recently introduced Cream Silk Rich Organic Powerfusion Ultra Conditioner, their first-ever conditioner inspired by the goodness of Mother Earth. It’s infused with organic balms and luxurious natural oils to help hair become softer, smoother, and healthier.
Better Packaging: Sustainable And Safe For The Planet
Help minimize waste and keep the oceans plastic-free by choosing products with sustainable packaging. These products practice the three R’s of sustainability: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle to help lessen environmental impact and ecological footprint.
Take Herbal Essences, for example. This brand recently introduced shampoo and conditioner collections in packaging made from resins with 50% certified recycled plastic and is working to have 90% of their major packaging platforms be recyclable or reusable by 2025. Aside from this, they also encourage bathroom recycling by providing instructions on how to responsibly dispose of their empty bottles.
Olay also came up with innovative ways to stand up for sustainability. It’s the first mass retail skincare brand to have a refillable packaging scheme to help reduce plastic waste. They now offer products in refillable jars with cartons made from 100% recycled paper that you can put in once you’re finished with the original tub.
