Clean. Cruelty-Free. Zero Waste. Beautiful.
Meet Izzy, the world’s first zero waste beauty line. Izzy is taking big steps to reduce plastic waste with clean and cruelty-free products that are 100% reusable, 100% recyclable, 100% certified CarbonNeutral®, and 100% gorgeous.
The global beauty industry is a $532-billion-dollar business that creates more than 120 billion units of packaging every year1. This packaging is the number one contributor to plastic production in the world. By 2050, there will be an estimated 12 billion tons of plastic in landfills and more plastic than fish in our oceans2.
Zero Waste Really
Means Zero Waste
Izzy beauty products come with no outer packaging, and are shipped in reusable mailers manufactured from upcycled materials.
Our medical-grade, American-made stainless steel tubes are designed to be cleaned and refilled over 10,000 times, so you literally never have to throw them away.
Our products contain 94% less plastic than the leading brands. What little plastic we do use is reground and recycled at our facility.
Even the water from our patent-pending antibacterial cleansing process is reused, rather than dumped into the ocean.
All of our manufacturing takes place within a 400-mile radius, which means that our carbon emissions from transportation alone are exponentially lower than those of any other beauty brand. Compared to the industry standard, our products have a 78% smaller carbon footprint after 25 refills. The more our products are reused, the smaller our relative carbon footprint becomes over time.
Thanks to our breakthrough membership model for replenishment, we can incentivize reuse and generate zero waste from start to finish.
Izzy Is Clean
Not only are our products formulated by the same filler that currently services some of the world’s leading prestige beauty brands, but they are clean, cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, and free of gluten, GMOs, alcohol, oil, parabens, phthalates, silicone, and talc.
Izzy Gives Back
Izzy is passionate about leaving the world a better place than we found it. That’s why we donate a portion of the proceeds from every Izzy purchase to three foundations that inspire us: the National Forest Foundation, Her Justice and Pencils of Promise.
The National Forest Foundation leads forest conservation efforts—including broadscale tree-planting initiatives—in the U.S., and promotes responsible recreation.
Zero Legal Barriers
Her Justice pairs thousands of well-trained pro bono attorneys with New York City women living in poverty who have legal needs in the areas of family, matrimonial and immigration law.
Zero Children Without
Access to Education
Pencils of Promise creates schools, programs and global communities in the developing world around the common goal of education for all.

Meet Our Founder
Founder + Chief Zero Waste Officer
After having accrued nearly two decades of dedicated beauty experience in marketing, innovation and product development, Shannon Goldberg founded Izzy with the goal of creating a zero waste beauty brand that would contribute to a brighter future for her daughter, Emm. “I wanted to provide my daughter with truly sustainable options when it came to cosmetics,” explains Shannon. “Beauty products that were clean, planet-friendly and performance-driven.”
In the process, Shannon created a brand that transcends waste reduction by eliminating waste altogether. In addition to not using any outer packaging, Izzy challenges traditional notions about supply chains, product development and marketing by having the smallest carbon footprint of any beauty brand in the world. Izzy’s entire supply chain is located within a 400-mile radius, while every product offering is 100% refillable, reusable and recyclable. Not only does Izzy show the world that Millennial moms like Shannon can form newer, greener beauty habits that go against those of past generations, but it’s a brand that future beauty consumers like Emm can stand behind and feel good about.
Shannon remains inspired by Emm to do everything she can to make the world a more sustainable place for her. “By 2050, the oceans are projected to contain more plastic than fish,” warns Shannon, citing a recent report by the World Economic Forum. “If we want to give our children a fighting chance tomorrow, then we need to do something radical about reversing this cycle today.”
But for Shannon, Izzy is about more than just affecting change. “It’s about doing the right thing,” she adds, “and looking beautiful while doing it!”
