Many people like organic makeup because it has fewer potentially harmful synthetic ingredients. like parabens, a synthetic preservative often found in regular cosmetics.

Your skin is organic and needs to be feed. If you use makeup on a daily basis your are applying a product to your skin that will penetrate the skin and goes into your bloodstream. So you might as well use makeup that is free of toxic ingredients and that will feed your skin nutrients and vitamins to keep it healthy. The skin is also constantly exposed to high concentrations of oxygen, UV light, and oxidizing chemicals, highlighting a role for antioxidant vitamins in skin function.

The top 10 harmful ingredients you should stay away from:

DEA/TEA/MEA

Carcinogen

Fragrance/parfum

Unregulated ingredient that often includes harmful chemicals and carcinogens

Sodium lauryl (ether) sulfate (SLS, SLES)

Irritant, capable of producing carcinogens when mixed with other chemicals

Hydroquinone

Allergen, respiratory toxin, potential carcinogen  

Mineral oil

Carcinogen

Parabens (methylparaben, isobutylparaben and propylparaben)

May play a role in breast cancer development 

Triclosan

Can create carcinogenic chloroform, alters hormone regulation 

A study of teenage girls conducted by the UC Berkeley Center for Environmental Research and Children’s Health showed that after just three days of using products free of hormone-disrupting chemicals, levels dropped by as much as 45 percent. Which, if you think about it, is a pretty high rate of return on a small investment in better health.

Your skin absorbs more than 60 percent of what is applied topically; whether it’s your makeup, lotion, shampoo, soap, deodorant, etc. This means your pores are drinking up a toxic cocktail that goes directly into your bloodstream.

In order to regain control, using natural makeup that is created from nutrient-rich, natural ingredients. When looking for products, you may see terms like self-preserving and vegan. If you don’t know what that means when it comes to cosmetics.

When it comes to choosing our food, a natural and organic choice and lifestyle make perfect sense. Each time we eat, the food is broken down by our digestive system, and the liver is flushing away harmful toxins. However, when we put something on our skin, up to 60% of the synthetic chemicals may enter the bloodstream and build up in our bodies. Using chemical-free products (natural and organic) for our skincare routine makes perfect sense.

Your skin is the largest living, breathing organ on your body. Up to 60% of what you apply on your skin gets absorbed into your bloodstream, which then gets circulated around your whole body. But if you knew what toxins non-organic skincare products contained, you would think twice before you use it. So it’s no surprise to see more and more people switching to organic skincare products. 

Pick up a bottle of any non-organic skincare product and read its ingredients label. How many ingredients can you actually recognize?

Non-organic skincare products contain synthetic, man-made chemicals such as sodium laurel, mineral oils, Laureth sulfate, and toxins that could be residues of pesticides. Studies have also found that they can contain mineral oil, petroleum, parabens, and other chemicals that, with long term use, can cause skin irritation, hormone imbalance (Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Because of their essential role in the body, even small hormonal imbalances can cause side effects throughout the body. Hormones are chemicals that are produced by glands in the endocrine system.), organ toxicity, and even cancer.

The synthetic ingredients found in non-organic products may be fast-acting, but they are also invasive, causing harm that cannot be seen. Their chemical ingredients may provide instant gratification and visible results, but most of this only helps you aesthetically by smoothening out wrinkles, removing sunspots, and diminishing blemishes

With prolonged use, these chemicals may damage and weaken your skin as your body tries to cope with these foreign substances. As a result, oxygen exchange to the skin is reduced, causing premature aging and increased risk of developing sunspots.

 It is better to use organic makeup that are loaded with plants medicine, vitamins and peptides.

We love active botanicals and luxurious ingredients that feed your skin; high quantities of our favorite plants, nuts, flowers, and seeds. All the anti-aging, super-moisturizing, ultra-nourishing goodness that hasn’t been diluted down with pointless fillers. Better for your skin, better for your body, better for the environment and better for you.

Non-Toxic Foundations are better because they are:

1- Free of parabens, synthetic fragrance, PEGS, and petrochemicals.

2-Great for sensitive skin

3- Bad toxin won’t get into your bloodstream

4-Nourish your skin without clogging your pores

5-Best For the Planet

Toxic ingredients are often never tested for cosmetic toxicity at all.

Artificial fragrances and synthetic dyes should NOT be used in personal care products at all: Your skin can absorb what is placed on it. A number of dyes found to be carcinogenic have been banned from food, but the same regulations don’t apply to, say, lipstick (which, like it or not, the wearer does end up consuming). Lead, aluminum, cadmium (a groundwater contaminant that’s found in breast cancer tumors and known to be carcinogenic), and other heavy metals are regularly found in lipstick; the FDA doesn’t have a set limit on how much lead can be in a given lipstick, and its recent (2007, 2009, and 2012) studies actually show an increase in the amount of lead present.

without polymers and film formers, silicones, animal-derived waxes, carbon black, synthetic nylon or rayon microfibers, parabens, triethanolamine, keratin (can be animal-derived), aluminum powders, petroleum glycols, retinal acrylates, Cyclopentasiloxane, and PEGS.
