The Next Big Things: Our Top 5 Beauty Trends for 2021

Our predictions for the new products and innovative ingredients that will grace our cabinets and vanities in 2021.

Let’s face it: Who couldn’t use a beauty boost this spring? From waterless shampoo to upcycled beauty products, check out what our Trends Council thinks will be topping our shopping lists over the next year. While these new finds are filled with trend-worthy ingredients and formulas, our standards (as always) ban 100+ ingredients from all our beauty and body care products, including parabens, phthalates, microbeads and triclosan.
