Lancome

They have been spilling out of make-up bags for almost a decade (it's the 10th anniversary next year, can you believe) and for summer 2009 Juicy Tubes have had a big green makeover. We reckon maybe the eco-chic initiatives of Lancôme face, Elletra Weiderman, have rubbed off on the brand's brains because this limited edition line ticks lots of eco boxes.

Paraben-free formulations, natural ingredients such as shea butter, organic lemon essential oil and recycled packaging will all have beauty queens with a conscience racing to Lancôme counters before stocks run out. The range has also been given the thumbs-up by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) for its planet-friendly packaging.

Even if it's a one-off mission, we're pleased to see one of the big beauty brands sharpening their green tools and maybe others will follow suit.
