Nobody does clean cosmetics like Credo Beauty. Located in Lower Manhattan, this store sells natural and organic products that abide by a strict clean and eco-friendly code. Men will find hair products, deodorants, moisturizers, lotions and shaving products. 

For Her
While Credo Beauty is a great option for men and women, if you are looking for fun, colorful and non-toxic makeup, go to Winky Lux. This small and independent make up store has cute and creative products. They’re best known for a vegan lip stain balm that interacts with your lips’ pH to create a unique shade of pink. What’s more, some of them have a real chrysanthemum inside!
