7 Natural, Sustainable Alternatives to Sephora (Updated for 2021)

Natural and eco-friendly options that are just as luxurious

Who doesn’t like stopping by the local Sephora for a few pick-me-up products? I mean, they have tons of great products, most of which fall under the category of #selfcare.

But if you want to get your pampering on in a more sustainable way with natural products, your options there get much more limited.

That’s why I’ve put together this list of 7 skincare, hair, fragrance, and of course, makeup brands that make you feel good, inside and out!

Let’s get to it- the sooner you order, the sooner you can relax in the tub with your face mask on.

Before we dig into the list, if you like learning about brands that are changing the way the world does business, want to be the first to know about new arrivals on DoneGood, and get exclusive discounts delivered right to your inbox, sign up for email from DoneGood below. We'll start you off with over a dozen ways to save on ethically-made products!

Now, let's get into it...



Teadora supplies a range of luxury products for your hair, body, and face. Their products are unique in that they’re all made from sustainably sourced rainforest botanicals. That includes things like Amazonian white clay, acai, Brazil nut, guarana, Brazilian red clay, rose hip, and others.

These are natural ingredients that are both safe and effective, so you can rest assured that Teadora products will do what they say they’ll do, without risking the harmful side effects that can sometimes come with harsher ingredients.


Nourish & Refine

Look through Nourish & Refine's collection and you might start to see them as the ultimate in self-care. They've got luxurious body care, skincare, lip products, oils, candles, and more—all the things that will make you want to sink into a warm bubble bath.

But you can relax all the more knowing that all their products are non-toxic, cruelty-free, and made with 5 ingredients or fewer. They've got all the good, natural stuff you like, without the nasty stuff like phthalates, parabens, sulfates, or artificial colors and fragrances.

Try them out for yourself, or find the perfect gift with one of their gift baskets.


Beauty By Earth

Beauty By Earth has a great selection of skincare, makeup, and hair care products, all made from 100% natural, organic ingredients.

I’ve talked before about how much I love their tinted facial sunscreen, but it’s worth mentioning again- it’s the only tinted sunscreen I’ve found that actually blends well with my pale skin without making me look orange! It provides enough coverage for daily use, as well as a reassuring amount of sun protection.

They have tons of other goodies, too. From face masks to makeup remover, they’ve really got it all. You may also like their natural self-tanners, organic dry shampoos, or konjac sponges.

If you’re feeling indecisive, try their Ultimate Beauty Bundle!


Hazel & Rose


Hazel & Rose is a store that stocks a variety of different sustainable and ethical brands. They have skincare products from Little Barn, makeup from Henne Organics, Oscillate, Olio E Osso, Hydra, Noto, and more.

You can find just about anything you need here, from basics like face wash and moisturizer to more luxurious serums, toners, and bath salts. They also stock lip color, multi-purpose stain sticks for lips, highlighter, body scrubs, and perfumes. They even have some gorgeous, high-end candles to burn for the total spa experience.

Hazel & Rose has a rotating stock of great stuff, and their skincare is just one section of the store. If you want a one-stop shop replacement for Sephora, Hazel & Rose can be all that and more!


The Refill Shoppe

The Refill Shoppe aims to reduce the amount of trash being produced each day by supplying their products in minimal packaging. The idea is that you get one container the first time you order (or use one you already have) and after that, you just, well, refill it.

They have refills available for a bunch of common household items, including shampoo, conditioner, bubble bath, sugar scrub, lotion, moisturizer, cleanser, body wash, spot treatment, face masks, and a lot more.

For a lot of these products, you can even customize them by choosing a container, adding your own scents (or no scent) and having products automatically shipped to you on your schedule. Pretty cool!


Babo Botanicals

Babo Botanicals is another brand that stocks a range of sustainable essentials. They have a wide variety of sun care products to keep you protected, as well as skin and hair care products to keep you looking your best.

They’ve also recently introduced a line of vegan lip glosses that look really cute!

You can shop their site by various different categories, including “concern” like sensitive skin, fragrance-free, eczema care, sulfate-free, and others. Whatever you’re looking for, Babo Botanicals likely has a great, responsibly-made option for you!


Pour Le Monde Parfums

As you may have guessed from the name, Pour Le Monde Parfums is a great place to fulfill all your fragrance needs.

While you won’t find celebrity scents or cult classics, you will find unique scent blends that are the world’s only 100% natural perfumes to date.

Safe to say you won’t need to worry about anyone else in the room wearing your scent!
