Not only are these Eco-friendly cosmetics good for the environment, but they are also much better for your skin because they aren’t loaded with chemicals and other things that can irritate and damage your skin. Here are three excellent environmentally friendly makeup and cosmetic products that you can use to try and make a difference, no matter how small.
GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara in Pitch Black
If you’re already big on environmentally friendly cosmetics, then you’ve probably already heard of Josie Maran Cosmetics. Josie Maran’s mission is to maintain a makeup line that consists of only quality cosmetics that aren’t made with harmful chemicals.
One of the popular products on her makeup line is the GOGo Argan Mascara, which costs $22. This mascara has a Triple V Brush, so it doesn’t apply the mascara to your eye lashes in clumps. The mascara’s formula is water resistant and will give your pitch black eyelashes a dewy shine. This toxin free product has no fragrance, contains natural ingredients, it was not tested on animals, and is recyclable.
Chances are, you’ve heard of Physicians Formula’s products, but you may not have heard of their organic product line. In fact, this product line was the first organic makeup line to be certified by ECOCERT. Only 100% certified organic ingredients are used in this organic cosmetics line.
Usually, makeup is packaged in plastic, but every product on the organic cosmetics line is wrapped in environmentally friendly paper compacts.
The Face Sculpting Trio is a multicolored powder that you can use to even out your skin tone, make your skin look radiant, or give your skin a tanned look. You can use a combination of the three different powders to achieve the look you want.
This product comes in four different shades: Fair Organics, Light Organics, Sun-kissed Organics, and Tan Organics. You can purchase this product for $13.95.
The Organic Lip Exfoliator, which costs $38, is part of the Nvey Eco brand. This brand originally comes from Australia, however, it was imported into the United States. Nvey Eco has very environmentally friendly practices, and their products are known to be very long lasting and extremely durable.
This certified Exfoliator will give you very smooth lips and consists of a gentle blend of cranberry seeds and organic oils, which will work together to remove dead skin cells and make your lips smoother. You use the Organic Lip Exfloliator by applying a pea-sized amount to your lips with the wand applicator. After exfoliating your lips, you just need to remove the formula with a wet cotton pad.
As you can see, there are many organic cosmetics and organic makeup lines out there. You can make a difference in the state of the environment by only purchasing and using organic cosmetics.
