Best Organic Makeup Lines
There is a rumor going around that while it’s possible to find organic or natural skin care, when it comes to organic makeup, the waters are much murkier…
Well, to an extent that’s true. There are many more companies that make organic creams and masks, then those that make lipsticks and mascaras. But that doesn’t mean that there is nothing out there. And to prove it, I’ve made a thorough search, and profiled some of the best organic (and mostly certified) makeup choices around the world.
I posted the whole list here: “World’s Best Organic Makeup Lines”. The list includes organic makeup lines and natural makeup lines that may or may not be around your area, but at least some you should definitely be able to find!
Now, the criteria I used when searching was whether the makeup is certified, is free of synthetics, parabens, and not testing on animals. Despite the fact that I know that not all certifications are created equal, a lack of one is also telling. For example, there is a New Zealand brand that is “natural” and mostly “organic” or “wild harvested”, called “Living Nature”, but it is not certified. When I looked closer into it, I realized that they add synthetic ingredients, such as colors into their lipstick. Since that’s precisely what I’m trying to avoid, I’m not featuring them on my page (though I will gladly do so if they discontinue the use of synthetics). Sukicolour, however is an exception. While I could not find any information on certificates, upon studying the ingredients and information available about the line, I came to conclusion that there are no synthetic ingredients or preservatives, and therefore it falls into the “as natural as possible” category.
If you know other trusted, tested, and honest brands, please drop me a note. Good natural and/or organic makeup is still a developing sector in the beauty market, and every effort should be made to encourage manufacturers to provide us with effective choices. There is absolutely no reason why we should sacrifice health for beauty. And there is absolutely no reason why we should be eating poison in our lipsticks or putting poison on our eyes. Nature has provided us with abundant resources for facial art (for that’s what makeup really is ). Just look out on a field of wild flowers, and you’ll see that nature’s pallet has everything an artist could ever dream of and more.
Some of the lines featured are: Lavera, Logona, Physician’s Formula, Dr. Haushcka, SukiColour, NveyEco, SANTE Cosmetics, etc…
I hope that this list continues on growing, as new items enter the market. And as I find out about them
