How beauty brands can actually impact the fight for reproductive rights
Suzannah Weiss reports on the ways in which beauty and wellness brands can really make a difference in the fight for reproductive rights for Beauty Independent. Public statements of support are important, say experts, but they aren't enough — brands need to be taking action. "Actions can include donating to abortion funds, handling reproductive health-related expenses for employees and enacting leave policies that allow employees to get abortions without financially suffering," writes Weiss. {Beauty Independent}

The way we shop for beauty products is changing (again)
Rachel Strugatz of Business of Fashion examines the ways in which beauty retail is undergoing a(nother) shift. "Department stores used to be ground zero for consumers looking to try and buy new makeup or skin care products, only to lose their grip on the market to Sephora and Ulta. Now, another evolution is underway as big-box retailers and drugstores enter the fray," writes Strugatz, adding, "The evolution of where we buy beauty, from department stores to speciality retail, took decades. But the shift to big box retail, and potentially, drugstores, is happening much faster." {Business of Fashion}
