InStyle magazine's May 2012 issue features a list of recommended eco-friendly beauty products. Some are made with sustainable materials, while others are simply free of harsh chemicals.

Consider carrying these brands in your salon, either to use on clients or to sell as retail.

1. Zoya (N.Y.C nail pro Ana Maria Gheorghiu used these gorgeous nontoxic polishes on a then-pregnant Natalie Portman. Free of the harsh chemicals, Zoya formulas also have a longevity you don't often find in eco-friendly lines. Plus they come out with great colors every season.)

2. Eco Tools

3. Bare Minerals

4. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour

5. Tarte Matte Mineral Powder

6. Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment

7. Josie Maran Argan Balm
