Aspire to Live Lighter
Living Lighter is the ultimate luxury
Choosing products for your skin, health and home that are good for you and the planet – and feeling a deeper connection to the brands that make them – is a way of curating a life you love.
Our mission is not only to introduce you to blue beauty products and brands, but to invite a new way of living. That’s why Beauty Heroes created Project Blue Beauty, a movement to inform and inspire us to Live Lighter.
Beauty Heroes aspires to Live Lighter. We’re learning every step of the way, but we’re on the path. Here’s what you can expect from us.

Through responsible ordering and forecasting, we commit to zero waste retail, meaning we sell every item we purchase from our brands.
Living Lighter Lifestyle Store
Both online and IRL, we dedicate a retail division to the most progressive and innovative sustainable lifestyle wares.

We support our local eco-conscious printers in Northern California who print on FSC certified paper using soy ink.
