If you want to cut animal-derived products from your beauty regime and are looking for some “green” inspiration, then look no further. BDT Cosmetics is the skincare brand for you.
“The best foundation you can wear is glowing healthy skin."
The conception story behind the brand:
Launched in September 2018, BDT Cosmetics is committed to animal cruelty-free skincare products since its inception. Courtney Thomas, the founder, was looking for chemical-free products to use on her newborn baby who had eczema and found nothing available in the local stores. So she decided to make them herself. Everything is produced for sensitive skin, as all the products she makes she uses on her toddler.
When I first received my BDT box, I was overjoyed. I am a sucker for great packaging and I was amazed at the thoughtfulness given to all the details. It screams commitment to minimize waste. The glass bottles came in nicely tucked-in packing balls, accompanied by a cloth bag and a handmade loofah soap bag. The brand totally runs the gamut in terms of coverage and good vibes.
Maybe it’s my Indian upbringing that I always believed healthy glowy skin comes from natural homemade products. And BDT Cosmetics definitely transported me back to my home country. The uplifting natural scents and ingredients reminded me of my grandmother’s special formulas. I would totally recommend incorporating their products into your daily skincare routine.
It’s also a good brand to start with if you are looking for low-maintenance vegan methods. It’s very difficult to find anti-animal cruelty products that aren’t expensive, but BDT Cosmetics is a very pocket-friendly brand. They are 100% vegan and committed to providing clean organic products at super-affordable prices.
Their offerings are so diverse, that you can shop for yourself and your little ones too. They have soaps and shampoos for children. BDT Cosmetics is passionate about providing the very best for your tiny tots and it goes without saying their kids' range too is made from the most authentic natural raw materials. They come in various shapes and colors. So clean fun for your big and small kids. Let them enjoy their shower time with some interesting playdough bath range. They sure know how to get creative.
They are also reinventing the wheel with their shampoo cakes. Forget the traditional plastic bottles, now they come in bars, in a variety of scents, shapes, and colors. How this gives me so much hope! My top pick will be their face exfoliant. Induced with jojoba and coconut oil, it’s totally a game-changer, and worth including in your skincare routine.
So if you have decided to ditch the complex ingredients that make up the universe of beauty and skincare, head over to BDT Cosmetics or hop onto their Instagram to shop from them.
Have a look at their products and let me know what you think.
