Organic beauty products have been on the rise in recent years, with more people looking to make the healthiest beauty choices possible. While organic brands used to be relatively few and far between, there are now hundreds of companies that specialize not just in making organic beauty products, but in distributing eco-friendly, fair-trade products to beauty enthusiasts all over the world. The best way to find a company that makes high quality, all natural beauty products is to check out the internet. Just do a simple search and you’ll find dozens of online organic beauty product manufacturers, distributors and sellers.
However, since there are so many options when it comes to natural beauty products and makeup, it can seem difficult to choose the best brands. The key to finding the best organic makeup brands is to understand what the big players are selling, how they’re selling it, and whether or not those companies are selling anything that’s truly cruelty-free makeup. So, how do you go about picking the best natural makeup brands?
One of the best places to start when you want to find a brand of natural cosmetics is to look at what big name cosmetics companies are currently marketing. Most major cosmetic companies will be releasing a new cosmetic product at some point during the year. Look for these new brands of cosmetics, and see what each one contains. You’ll likely be surprised by how many ingredients that big name companies use in their skin care and hair care products, especially if the ingredients sound familiar. This is because the majority of companies will use chemical agents as the main ingredients in their cosmetics and skin care products.
Sadly, the chemicals that the beauty industry uses in their products are often more harmful to your health than the natural ingredients that the makeup companies use. For example, parabens, which have been found to cause cancer, are commonly used as preservatives in skin cream and lip balm. Organic beauty industry companies would never use these dangerous chemical compounds in their products, and it’s your responsibility to make sure that they don’t. Another chemical commonly found in beauty industry products is fragrance, which has been found to irritate the skin and cause allergic reactions. The good news is that natural ingredients such as Tea Tree Oil, Calendula Oil, and Shea Butter have been shown to sooth irritations and soothing dryness to the skin, leaving it soft and smooth.
So what should you look for in a quality, natural makeup bag? The first thing that you should look for is a lid lock feature, to ensure that the makeup is well protected from spilling. It’s also important that your eye shadows, lip liners, blushes, and eyeliners stay on your face throughout the day, and not just at night. You want to put these items in their original container and not leave them in your makeup bag for days or weeks.
The best brands of organic makeup include: Alba Cosmetics by Avon, Clinique by Estee Lauder, ail by Maybelline, Estee Lauder Smoothing Serums by Dermalogica, Elemis Beauty Tiles Natural Beauty Tiles by Cellex-C. No matter which brand you choose, or which line of products you buy, make sure to read the ingredients label carefully. Some products will claim to be “all-natural” but may contain chemicals, such as alcohol and petroleum jelly. You may also see terms like “mineral oil”, which refers to mineral oil, that are listed on the ingredients label. Again, stick with natural, organic products and avoid products that contain chemicals. You’ll feel and look better, and have healthier skin to boot!
