Season after season, fashion runways have been dabbling in more gender neutral collections that straddle the lines of conformity to promote individuality. The beauty industry is following suit and kicking gender boxes out the door as products sit in the fence of masculinity and femininity. These are the five gender inclusive brands that are all about fluidity.

GLAMGLOW

Created by a male and female duo to suit all skin types and genders, Glam Glow makes sharing your products with your significant other fun with their texture-morphing formulas and instagrammable packaging.

CK ONE

A brand that prided itself on its gender fluidity as early on as the 90s with ad campaigns of models sporting the signature t-shirt and jeans uniform across all genders, their CK fragrances are democratically composed to have just the right amount of freshness and sensuality in the notes  that both men and women love.
