On Beautyologie’s blog, The Study of Finding Beauty in Life, we love doing deep dives on ethical beauty brands and their founders, reporting on transparent supply chain methods and spotlighting the producers who deserve to be seen and heard. We also aspire to create a place of discovery featuring stories about beneficial ventures impacting the environment, the animal kingdom and the beautiful world we live in.
