This handbag-friendly beauty book is the perfect size to keep with you at all times. And with its endless information on living green, you'll want to ensure that it never leaves your side.
Written by Helen Coates, founder of y-yo, a chemical-free range of fragrances and Rebecca George who runs Miss Green's Wardrobe, Ethical Beauty for the Australian Green Goddess ($17.95) features 16 eco-friendly beauty tips such as where to buy a great makeup bag that's fashionable and sustainable, how to get beach-hair without the chemicals and a whole host of DIY recipes that, not only cheap, are effective, too.
Then there's the directory. It's jam-packed full of Australian beauty brands, separated, for your convenience, alphabetically or by category. The directory includes website and phone deets, as well as info on what the range actually features (ie. makeup/skincare) and whether the products are certified organic, organic, paraben-free, sulfate-free, petrochemical-free, animal cruelty-free and vegan. In other words, it's nothing short of a miracle.
