These four female-owned green beauty brands prove that it is possible to integrate profit with philanthrophy, and they have partnered with various causes to give back to the community in a big way. 
If you like your green beauty with a side of social consciousness, you will want to support these companies and their initiatives, and the products will make you feel as good as you look!

1. Kahina Giving Beauty

PR veteran Katharine L'Heureux discovered argan oil on vacation over a decade ago, and she was so intrigued by its unique production that she developed her a premium organic skincare line Kahina Giving Beauty with the ingredient at its core. She makes frequent trips to Morocco to source the finest argan oil from family farms and women co-ops and sees firsthand how their hard work, as well as Kahina's practice of fair wages and giving back to their communities, has made a positive impact on their lives. This includes 12,000 trees planted in community run nurseries, 100 sheep for wool weaving, healthcare for the women, room and board for girls to attend school and more.

Editor's Pick: Winner of The Beauty Shortlist's Best Argan Oil Product in 2013, the luxurious but lightweight Eye Cream ($65.00) will literally melt into your delicate undereye area to deliver immediate soothing and de-puffing results. The rave reviews on the website don't lie!

Forbes 30 Under 30 Social Entrepreneurs of the Year Kwami Williams and Emily Cunningham traveled to northern Ghana with MIT's D-Lab, where they were introduced to the moringa tree. They decided to put their engineering and business acumen to work, giving birth to True Moringa and providing farmers with capital, training and guaranteed markets. They have since grown to an 80-strong team in Ghana, planting over 300,000 trees (with a Million Moringa goal), serving over 2,900 small farming families and increasing their incomes ten-fold. 
Editor's pick: The Rejuvenating Body Polish ($34.00) is an aromatic blend of Nicaraguan coffee beans from Veja Coffee (which I have reviewed here) with their signature Moringa oil, guaranteed to wake and shake up your shower routine.
