NOWADAYS, people are more and more conscious of their wastes and the products they buy. More consumers are making conscious efforts to make sure the cosmetic and other personal products they buy do not harm the environment, not only with the ingredients used but as well as the packaging.

Here in Davao City, we scouted for a couple of homegrown brands that do not only mean business but also sustainability and seriously considering the welfare of the environment in all their business decisions.

1. One Earth Organics Davao

They sell skin care and cosmetic products made of organic non-toxic ingredients. They brand themselves as using natural-only ingredients that does no harm to their users. They have toners, facial creams, deo-sprays, milk soap, body scrub, body cream, collagen creams and so much more. Their products are tagged "cruelty-free" which means no animals were harmed during the making of these products.

2. MNQ Handmade Cosmetics

In a bid to promote and live a waste-free lifestyle and business, MNQ Handmade Cosmetics produces their own bar soaps and conditioners and other beauty products. They come in colorful variants and in different scents. Best part is they use paperbags and other biodegradable materials for their packaging.
