The Benefits of Sustainable Skincare
As individuals are becoming increasingly aware of their responsibility to the environment, there is growing demand for transparency around the sourcing of skincare ingredients. At Sustainable Youth we work to minimise our effect on the environment by obtaining our ingredients from only sustainable sources.
With our organic skincare products, you can be reassured that you’re working to minimise your impact on the environment.
We never source products from species of plant which are endangered, and we extract oils without the use of damaging heat or chemicals. Our products are not only kinder to your skin, they’re gentle on the environment. With organic ingredients, there are no harmful microbeads or chemicals.
Our Super Boost Night Serum® rejuvenates skin during sleep using alasta®, derived from sustainably sourced Aloe Vera. The plant is cut only during the hours where the active ingredient is present, ensuring the integrity of our product range.
Cruelty Free Products
Our products are all vegetarian and vegan friendly, sourced only from natural, plant based extracts. Sustainable Youth are completely against animal cruelty and therefore we don’t use ingredients from animals, and we never carry out animal testing.
None of our sustainable skincare products contain any endangered plant species and all are completely free of Petrolatum, Propylene Glycol and Parabens. From the farms to the factories, we always adhere to a strict green code of sustainability.
Natural and Organic Skincare
Often, skincare products contain synthetic ingredients, with limited information on their long term health impacts. Sustainable Youth products use only organic ingredients with known repairing, restoring and rejuvenating qualities.
Because our products are completely natural, there is less risk of skin irritation. Our Anytime Lift Eye Treatment brightens and revives the eye area using only organic, natural and green ingredients.
Lightweight Serums and Lotions
All of our naturally sourced skincare products are lightweight, avoiding heavy or greasy creams. Our cleansing lotion removes makeup, including waterproof eyeliners and mascaras, while remaining gentle on skin. Skin is left feeling soft and hydrated, avoiding harsh chemicals.
Commitment to Sustainability
At Sustainable Youth, we don’t just make your average skincare products like those you might find in your local store. We pride ourselves on our commitment to quality and our commitment to sustainability.
All the products we stock are as good for your skin as they are for the environment. Take a look at the Sustainable Youth Collection to see all of our stunning sustainable skin care products and get yours today.
Summer Skincare with Sustainable Youth
Summer Skincare with Sustainable Youth
Now that summer has arrived, it’s time to start thinking about switching up your skincare routine. Have you ever heard that what works for your skin in winter may not be the best for your skin in the summer? With the summer season at its peak, you not only need to tuck away those winter boots and break out the sandals, but you should also switch-up your skincare routine. Here are 4 easy tricks to help your skin stay flawless and hydrated during those hot and humid months.
- Preventing Dehydration. During those active sweaty months, your skin’s ecosystem is drained of the love it really needs – water. Dehydrated skin is skin that is both dry and oily at the same time. Quite the paradox, isn’t it? This occurs because skin is lacking in water, and as a result tries to compensate by producing more oil to keep itself hydrated by keeping water in. Prevent dehydration by not only guzzling down that H2O but by using products that are going to keep your skin happy and hydrated. Try our Ultra Hydrating Anytime Moisturizer Cream from Sustainable Youth®. Containing Organic virgin olive oil and virgin flaxseed oil provide rich moisture and hydration.
- Exfoliation. The outside environment has a lot to do with the health of your skin’s tone and texture. Being exposed to the extreme highs and lows of the weather, your skin starts to get a buildup of dead skin cells that must go! Gently buffing away these skin cells is a key factor to getting a brighter glow and helping your products better penetrate your skin. Take for example our Ultra Creamy Cleansing Lotion® which removes makeup, waterproof eyeliner, mascara and cleanses the skin gently but effectively.
- Decrease Sun Exposure. We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to wear sunscreen all year long, but it is especially important to protect your skin during these scorching hot summer months. Summer is usually the time where you find yourself outside more often than any other seasons so sun exposure cannot be avoided. UV damage gives you the dreaded dark spots, wrinkles, and can expose you to skin cancer.
- Beat the heat with a cooling treat With so much time spend out and about during these hot summer days, nothing sounds quite as good as a cool, refreshing burst of hydration. Our Firming & Revitalizing Serum The lightweight serum helps promote radiance and glow, while delivering superior daytime benefits to combat everyday pollutants that can create a stressful environment for your skin leading to a dull, gray appearance.
Enjoy the summer outdoors but make sure you have the skincare you need for the heat and adventures you’re going to have. Stay focused on your skincare routine and switching it up to keep your skin healthy and glowing, all summer long. Shop our entire summer skincare collection here.

Benefits of Aloe Vera for Skin
Aloe Vera has various natural beneficial ingredients that bring about both beauty and health benefits used correctly on our skin. Sustainable Youth® skincare products are packed with healing extracts to sooth, reduce wrinkles and improve your skin tone.
There’s no denying the medicinal and healing properties behind aloe vera. While those bonuses are plentiful, there’s still something to be said for the vast aloe vera skin benefits you can acquire through creams, and lotions.
The aloe vera plant is packed full of healing extracts, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, and amino acids. The gel is filled with a plethora of aloe vera skin benefits, such as anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory, giving it soothing and moisturizing properties that defend against harmful toxins that can destroy the delicate skin of the face.
Restoring Skin Tone:
In order to optimize aloe vera skin benefits to its full potential, aloe vera should be applied directly to clean skin. It may cause a tightening sensation as it dries, but it will leave the skin silky smooth once rinsed away. Aloe vera can help to clear up acne, reduce facial scarring, and bring relief to red, irritated skin. It is useful for healing minor cuts, scrapes, and skin abrasions on the face.
Everyone wants to banish fine lines and wrinkles. One of the most positive effects of aloe vera skin benefits is its gradual reduction of the aging process. When applied as a cream, lotion, or gel, it can quickly penetrate each layer of the skin, delivering nourishment that is rich in powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants help to reverse the aging process by fighting off free radicals.
