Fuel for Activism


Founder Allison Callaway always felt like she didn’t quite fit in. Between battling acne, a bit of social anxiety, and interests based in animal and environmental protections, Allison went through her teen years researching natural skin care and joining activist causes. It wasn’t until years later that she realized that caring about the planet IS cool. She knew she wanted to create a safe space for others like herself, and thought that skincare was the perfect vessel. Why not provide a product that everyone needs, with a story and community they can join and be part of?

From giving back to environmental causes, using sustainable packaging, and creating an educational blog to promote learning and self care, Allison has created a nourishing and inspiring brand and community - the Activist Skincare.

Why We Like Them

First and foremost, we love Activist Skincare because of their use of pure, plant based ingredients. Based on scientific research by experts like the Environmental Working Group and the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, Activist Skincare creates botanical based products that are free from the bad stuff. You’ll never find Parabens, Phthalates, Silicones, Sulfates, artificial colors and fragrances, or nanoparticles in their products. On top of this, they take it a step further and also say known to lesser known toxins, like Triclosan, Propylene glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives, Hydroquinone, and more. 

Next, Activist Skincare stays close to their animal activist roots, ensuring each product is 100% Vegan and cruelty free. None of their ingredients or finished products are tested on animals, so you can feel good knowing that Activist “walks the walk”. 

In addition to safe, ethical ingredients, Activist Skincare knows that skin care packaging is just as important as the ingredients themselves. That’s why each product comes packaged in glass, with minimal plastic accessories. When you’ve finished your product, you can order an aluminum bottle refill, accompanied by a shipping label to send back your aluminum refill bottle. Activist will sanitize, refill, and resell that refill bottle, eventually recycling the bottle at the end of its life. 

Every purchase from Activist Skincare also goes further to support real activism. 5% of all sales are donated to environmental advocacy groups, supporting various NGOs and helping to fund the change.
