Natural Makeup: Should You Make The Switch?

Natural Makeup: Should You Make The Switch?

Whilst I been using natural/organic skin care and hair care for several years now I didn’t really think as much about my makeup. That was until I developed a greater understanding of the fact that everything that we choose to put on your face and body is absorbed into our skin. Once in the skin, it gets further absorbed into the bloodstream where it can have an effect on your brain and body.

Unfortunately, the skin care and makeup industries are largely unregulated. An awareness is slowly developing that many ingredients used in personal care products, including makeup, are known carcinogens and hormone disruptors. They are not as harmless as we are lead to believe.

Common Toxins In Makeup And Their Effects

Some of the most common carcinogens and toxins that are often found in high-priced make-up, and sold by well-known companies, include:

  • Propylene glycol
  • Toluene
  • Formaldehyde
  • Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and Sodium laureth sulfate (SLES)
  • Triloscan
  • Phthalates

These and other toxins and carcinogens have been linked to:

  • Problems in the endocrine system/hormonal disruption
  • Irritation of the skin/eczema
  • Birth defects when used during pregnancy
  • Impaired liver and other organ function

Going Toxin free For Everyone’s Health

The natural cosmetics we stock are free from these toxins and are safe for your body, brain, and blood. Your skin is your largest organ, so covering it with wholesome products just makes sense.  The natural makeup brands we stock also include active ingredients in their formulations which work not only make your skin look flawless but also treat and nourish it at the same time.

Organic products are not only safer for you, your children, and the environment, but they are also safer for animals. As sad as it is to report, many cosmetic companies still test their products on animals causing pain, illness, severe injury, and even death. Our natural line of makeup and skincare products have never been tested on animals.

We offer a great range so that you can feel good about what goes on, and into, your body. You will also look beautiful doing it.
