Join us on March 23rd for a Green Beauty Night, presented by The Eco Well and The Eco Market Canada. Featuring a panel presentation by Canadian industry leaders and a highly curated green beauty market. What is green beauty? This term is thrown around so flippantly, but what makes a product truly sustainable? Is natural synonymous with ‘green’? Should we be looking to certifications and non-governmental organizations for insights about our products? What are some of the metrics we should be looking to when calling a product green? This topic will be disseminated throughout the evening. Before and after, you’ll be able to shop from local green beauty brands and connect more with our panelists. Join us for an evening of education, connection and fun!

In addition to our panel and market, we’ll also be hosting poster presentations from local scientists studying sustainability in cosmetics. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about some of the amazing research coming from Canada and having an international industry impact.

*Note, the panel presentation will be recorded for The Eco Well’s podcast as well as Eco Cast by The Eco Market.

Tickets include access to the whole event, healthy appetizers and drinks, and a chance to win some green beauty swag! Limited tickets, get em' while they last!
