As an enthusiastic traveler and beauty buff I noticed that there was a different approach to manufacturing skin care in Europe compared to the U.S. The standards were strikingly different. I found products in Europe without many harmful ingredients that were used in common practice here and not yet banned in the U.S. - parabens, phenoxyethanol and phthalates.
Also, many brands were already on the forefront of prohibiting animal testing and using recycled packaging.
Seeing the beauty industry change and being more aware is a good thing here in the U.S.
With this in mind, the goal of Snow Flower Chic is to source green beauty brands from Europe to the United States. We look for specific environmentally aware companies or family-owned and artisan brands that choose ingredients from sustainable or local organic farms. Ecocert, Cosmebio and Slow Cosmetique are certifications and labels that are quality standards we value.
I hope you love our carefully selected products as much as we do!
