Inc. MAGAZINE just announced its 2020 list of the 5,000 fastest-growing privately-held U.S. companies. With clean cosmetics rising in popularity—and enviable oodles of ingenuity and integrity—here are the 17 clean beauty brands that made the Inc. 5000 list in 2020, four of which made Inc. 500.
10. INTERNATIONAL PRODUCTS GROUP | “Clean Beauty Giant”
Founded 2005 • 1st-time honoree • 366% growth
International Products Group (IPG) making Inc. 5000 for the first-time speaks volumes to the core claims of this list: That clean beauty is booming, first, because consumers are clamoring for it, and, second, because passionate companies are providing best-in-class clean beauty products. And that second leg is where IPG comes in. IPG develops and manufactures whole clean beauty brands for their clients—a clientele that includes A-list celebrities, indie brands and, yes, even some of the Fortune 500 companies on our list.
IPG is effectively mainstreaming the process of clean beauty brand development—a process that was once solely in-house as budding brands everywhere charted blind and slowly worked their way through formulation after formulation. IPG produces beauty products with — Ready? — No parabens, no phthalates, no SLS, SLES or harsh surfactants, no petrolatums, no GMOs, no tricolsan, no hydrogen peroxide, no EDTA, BHT or BHA, no propylene glycol, and no animal by-products or animal testing.
