Your breakfast is a green juice. Your shoes are vegan leather. Your garden is drought friendly. Why shouldn't your beauty routine be just as ecofriendly as the rest of your life? Credo, a San Francisco–based company with a location in Manhattan, just opened its third outpost in the walkable, trend-setting area of The Grove. The boutique is stocked with organic, cruelty-free and allergy-friendly makeup, skin care, body care and fragrances, with leading brands like Vapour, Fig + Yarrow and Juice Beauty. While you're there, try a mini facial or instant eye lift at the beauty bar. Wandering through Credo is like being a kid in a candy shop, except these delectable goodies are good for you, too.


Earth-friendly, cruelty-free beauty products from around the world.
You want to look good, and feel good about it too.
