Garnier Green Beauty – 9 Nourishing Eco and Organic Products


Garnier Green Beauty

According to Garnier a global survey has revealed that although 81% of people want to be more sustainable, ‘less than 6% have taken day-to-day action to protect the planet’.

Here at The Life of Stuff we’re on our own sustainable living journey, taking it step by step, one change at a time. But the question of ‘CAN BEAUTY GO GREEN?’ on a global scale is a question we’re interested to find an answer to. And thanks to a new series produced by National Geographic CreativeWorks and featuring National Geographic Explorers we’re certain we’ll find some answers as the experts share their knowledge and real-world advice on key sustainability topics related to the beauty industry.


We are proud to work with Garnier and help bring this latest Green Beauty commitment to life. Bringing the passion and storytelling talent of National Geographic’s Explorers to help tell Garnier’s stories, while inviting people to understand their own impact on the world and imagine new possibilities is what we do best at National Geographic CreativeWorks”

Nadine Heggie, VP

To realise the full power of Green Beauty, Garnier wants to encourage consumers to take green steps too. Sustainability can be an intimidating topic and our aim is to make it truly accessible – we’ve done that with the products we create, from solid shampoo with fast rinse technology, cardboard integrated tubes and refillable products – but we want to go further. Through the work of National Geographic CreativeWorks, we aim to give our consumers access to top experts and their advice for living greener everyday.”
