Where to Buy Clean Beauty & Low Tox, Organic Products in Canada

Where to Buy Clean Beauty & Organic Products in Canada

While the majority of my readers are based in the United States, don’t think I’ve forgotten about those of you up north in Canada, eh 🇨🇦 I know shipping prices can be quite steep if you purchase things from the US. So today I wanted to highlight some Canadian-based brands and retailers where you can get clean beauty, natural skincare, and non-toxic products (duty-free without extra fees)!

Cosmetic Regulation in Canada vs. USA

Unlike the United States where roughly 11 cosmetic ingredients are banned (this still baffles me), Health Canada keeps an eye on things by regulating cosmetics under the Food and Drugs Act and the Cosmetic Regulations. They are much stricter and even have a lengthy Cosmetic Ingredient Hotlist of 500+ prohibited and restricted ingredients. However, it’s still not a perfect system, and many questionable ingredients can still slip through the cracks or have loose restrictions. So it’s still smart to be vigilant about reading ingredient labels to make sure you’re using a safe product!

Canadian Marketplaces & Online Retailers to Buy Multiple Brands

The following retailers are based in Canada and have got you covered with all your clean beauty needs. Whether you’re looking for eco-friendly skincare, natural makeup, or non-toxic household products, these Canadian-based retailers have curated selections that prioritize quality, sustainability, and efficacy. So, without further ado, let’s dive into some of the best clean beauty destinations north of the border! 🍁

Bathorium

Bathorium

Bathorium is a bath bomb company from Ottawa that creates luxurious bathing experiences using natural and ethically sourced ingredients. It always sounds so fun to throw a bath bomb into the tub to create a fun home spa experience, but so many of them out there include harmful (and often, unknown) ingredients and intense synthetic fragrances. (Nothing screams the mid-2010s like cruising through the local mall, only to have your nose bombarded with fragrances coming from Lush down the way. IYKYK.)

Bathorium’s bath bombs, on the other hand, are handcrafted with essential oils, salts, and botanicals to nourish the skin and soothe the senses. 💆🏻‍♀️ An awesome feature on their website shows a “Benefits” product breakdown for specific skin types, such as; sensitive skin, eczema relief, sinus relief, and more. From fizzing bath soaks to nourishing bath elixirs, you can’t go wrong.

Biodynamic Coffee (Holistic Roasters)

For my fellow coffee snobs ☕️ Biodynamic is extremely impressive! Their tagline is “no compromise coffee” and they have great certifications. Not only are they organic and tested free of contaminants like mold and mycotoxins, but they are regeneratively grown and Demeter-certified biodynamic which is like UBER organic. The quality can’t get much better than this!

You can get Light, Medium, or Dark roasts. I drink the Rubicon (light roast) which is delish! Biodynamic is based in Montréal where they do all the roasting, production, and shipping.

Numi Undershirts

Numi

Numi specializes in creating innovative and sustainable clothing solutions so that we don’t have to sacrifice style when it comes to prioritizing the planet. Their line of seamless and versatile basics, like activewear and cozy loungewear, is made from eco-friendly materials like bamboo and Tencel.

Michelle, the founder, was working in finance when she realized she wasn’t wearing her favorite clothes because of stubborn sweat stains or the hassle of dry cleaning. Determined to find a solution, she embarked on a journey to create comfortable, sweat-proof undershirts that could be worn invisibly under clothing. In 2013, Michelle left her finance career behind to pursue her idea, even without fashion or manufacturing experience. With sheer determination, she transformed her concept into reality, creating the first prototype of the original Numi undershirt, a favorite staple that is still worn today.

I wear The Signature Undershirt which is stretchy, thin, breathable, wears well underneath other shirts, and definitely stops excess sweat from ruining my clothes. I like wearing mine under nicer blouses or clothes that tend to show sweat marks easily.

With the support of her husband and the expertise of cosmetic chemist Irene Schnell, she embarked on a mission to revolutionize lash enhancement.

Together, they started a groundbreaking approach using plant-based actives in a self-preserving formula, completely devoid of synthetic ingredients. This new method not only promotes lash and brow growth but also protects and nourishes them from within. The result? Plume’s award-winning products, enriched with natural ingredients like aloe vera and vitamin E, are designed to give you healthier, fuller-looking lashes and brows. The business operates out of Calgary.

Sappho New Paradigm

Sappho New Paradigm

Sappho is more than just a makeup brand; it’s a movement towards empowerment and transparency in the beauty industry. It was founded by pro makeup artist, JoAnn Fowler, in 2008 in Vancouver. In a world where women entrepreneurs receive a mere 1.7% of all funding, often at the expense of their intentions and the integrity of their products, Sappho dares to challenge the status quo. With a focus on transparency, Sappho publishes the results of their product tests, ensuring customers are informed about what they’re purchasing and the impact it has on their health and the environment.

For example, they test all of their makeup for PFAS (aka, forever chemicals) and are always reformulating to improve their findings. The mica supplier is part of the Responsible Mica Initiative and is verified child-labor-free (it’s a notorious industry, unfortunately). In addition, Sappho uses non-irradiated, non-nano, and low photosensitivity minerals that have a low heavy metal content. All foundations, lipsticks, and eyeshadows are formulated with organic and cruelty-free ingredients, delivering professional-quality results without harm to animals or the environment. Impeccable!

Whether it’s TENCEL™ lyocell, organic cotton, or REPREVE® recycled polyester, each material is carefully selected to minimize wastewater and emissions typically associated with manufacturing processes. Their name is quite literal because they plant 10 trees for each purchase, and you can track where the trees get planted which is neat.

With 98% of their products already eco-friendly, Tentree is continuously innovating and exploring new materials and techniques such as recycled nylon, cotton, and naturally dyed or undyed fabrics. This ongoing effort aims to further shrink their environmental footprint while offering even more sustainable choices to their valued customers. Plus, their styles are sooo cute.

  1. Another great brand that is also very affordable is Pure Anada, located in Manitoba. They have makeup, skincare, body care, men’s care, home products and little girls gift sets, and more. Love their loose powder foundation, their tinted moisturizer and eyeshadows! Their lip shines rival Summer Fridays lip butter balms, and are the perfect clean dupe! They have a few boutiques you can visit, plus other stores that carry their products, and of course you can order online. All info is on their website. They also ship to the US so I’m thrilled about that!

  2. Thank you for this !!! There is a shop called Nature Santé in Montreal, QC that delivers across Canada too if not mistaken. It has brands like Cymbiotika, Just Ingredients, Risewell, etc. It’s really nice!!
