BrownStyle Magazine’s Editorial Guidelines

Our Editorial Standards and Commitment to Clean Beauty, Sustainability, and Planet Positivity

At BrownStyle Magazine, we take our responsibility to our readers, the environment, and ethical practices seriously. We feel that it is important that we share our unwavering commitment to the following principles that guide our editorial decisions and content creation:

Amplifing WOC/POC-Owned Businesses

Although we feature a wide range of fantastic lifestyle and luxury brands on our website, we believe it is our responsibility is to always shine some extra spotlight on businesses and brands owned by POC/WOC.

To do so, our editorial team has made the commitment to highlight businesses owned by POC and WOC by distantly marking these brands with a brown heart emoji (🤎). Happy shopping!

Clean Beauty

We believe that beauty and wellness should enhance your well-being, not compromise it. To the best of our ability, we are decicated to only highlighting clean beauty products that prioritize safe and non-toxic ingredients.

Our reviews and recommendations for beauty products are based on detailed research and our actual experience. We also utilize the Yuka app, which rates products based on its ingredients. If it receives anything less than a 50 score, we consciously decline to add it to our product roundups.

When it comes roundups about new launches, products may not be available in person to scan. In this instantce, we will list a link to the Yuka app so that our consumers can decide on whether or not they would like to purchase the item.

It is important to us that your beauty and wellness routine aligns with your health and values.


The health of our planet is intrinsically tied to our well-being. We champion eco-conscious lifestyle and luxury brands.

Our editorial platform serves as a hub for information on sustainable living, eco-friendly innovations, and meaningful ways to make a positive impact on our world.

Planet Positivity
