Credo, one of the most comprehensive clean-beauty retailers around, just opened its first New York City store at 9 Prince Street in Nolita. The e-commerce shop stocks skincare, bodycare, and cosmetics from all-natural, organic, and vegan brands, and currently only has one other location in its home city of San Francisco — making the New York store its second in the entire country.
Online, Credo stocks the Georgia-based One Love Organics, Red Flower, and R.L. Linden & Co, whose line of plant-based products "are only hand-mixed in the presence of good energy." (Are you surprised this didn't open in LA first?) Other brands include ILIA, S.W. Basics, and Gwyneth Paltrow's Juice Beauty, to name just a few.
Stop by to check out Credo's highly-curated, completely-green collections, and take advantage of their Clean Beauty Swaps, where you can dump your old cosmetics and have a sales associate help you find similar products. But before you toss your entire arsenal, you might want to read this first.
