Shark-free cosmetic brands to support on National Lipstick Day – July 29

Happy Lipstick Day! To celebrate, we would like to shed light on some shark-free and shark safe brands that either do not use squalene or have transitioned to plant-based alternatives or synthetic squalene to protect our endangered friends.

Shark squalene is commonly found in cosmetics like lipstick, eye shadow, and foundation, as well as personal care products like sunscreen, lip balm, moisturizer, shampoo, and conditioners. We want to help you become a better consumer of these products, so we compiled a list of sustainable brands.

Check out our starter list of Shark Free Cosmetics and Personal Care Brands to learn more!
