Large corporations still have a long way to go in terms of implementing eco-policies in their work—with the minor exception of some brands which are starting to be more conscious. It tends to be the boutique labels which have some of the most encouraging approaches to sustainability and environmental awareness. Striving to use less or no plastic, minimise waste and production, and bring an eco-friendly ethos, these Hong Kong eco-skincare brands offer some of the best products in the market.
Sustainable beauty is at its core at Coconut Matter, a Hong Kong-born and bred skincare brand. Specialising in coconuts—hence the name—the label offers a selection of natural deodorant, lipstick, virgin coconut oil, soaps and more.
