The story behind Green Chic started when we struggled to find top quality natural skin care products. A lot of times, the natural cosmetic brands sold have questionable ingredients or don't do much in addressing a particular skin concern. So, we decided to take matters into our own hands.
We created Green Chic - a safe place where you could buy amazing natural and organic cosmetics online without having to second guess your purchases, right here in the UAE. It’s not enough that a product is natural, it has to be effective too. Which is why we are always researching for the best brands and consulting with our customers to identify high-performance products.
How we select our products
Before we take on any products or brands, they undergo a screening process to ensure they are in fact natural and also that they operate ethically. Based on research and standards used by other similar minded organisations, we identified 14 toxic ingredients that are unsafe to use. We research the cosmetic brands and their products to make sure they do not contain these unsafe ingredients such as parabens, SLS and synthetic fragrances.
All products are cruelty-free as we do not believe in animal testing. In addition, we support natural cosmetic brands that are conscious about the environment by using environmentally-friendly packaging.
While there are tonnes of products out there, we didn't want to provide products just for the sake of it being natural. It is super important that the products are just as effective, ethical and of course...oh so chic!
Meet the founder - Vila
About 2 years ago, I was working as a healthcare researcher and after experiencing some skincare issues (acne in my 30s, go figure!), I started questioning what was in my beauty products. After researching the ingredients, I found out that a lot of them were toxic and unsafe to use. It was only when I turned to natural skin care, did I start to see the difference in my skin – my acne cleared up and my skin looked healthier and had a glow.
After speaking with other women who also used natural and organic cosmetic brands in the UAE, I realised there was a need for one place where you could buy top quality organic and natural cosmetics online, without having to compromise on effectiveness (or numerous trips to different shops). I launched Green Chic in April this year and I hope you enjoy the products as much as I do!
