The Internet has opened the world and there are no frontiers to get access to research, information, claims, and all kinds of reviews about experiences with products. It’s almost impossible not to be informed and get to know about certain ingredients that we normally consume not only for our personal use but in our household and daily lifestyle.
Clean beauty has become more popular since people are more aware of the toxic ingredients and chemicals in some skincare and makeup products. Clean beauty basically refers to all those products that avoid “toxic” ingredients perceived to be potential endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, or irritants to ensure safety for consumers. This whole topic has been controversial not only due to the fact that the beauty industry is a multi-billion-dollar industry but some products considered unsafe have been recommended to dermatologists for decades.
Weather is silicones, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, fillers…. and the list goes and goes. There are so many harmful ingredients that might be present in the makeup we wear every day and you can find tons of different opinions out there. What is a fact is that we all want to take care of our bodies from the inside out and It’s not a secret that the makeup we use can be made with harmful chemicals that can cause adverse health effects in the long run due to our bodies absorbing the ingredients.
So the answer is simple, non-toxic makeup refers to a makeup product whose formula has been made without ingredients that cause adverse health effects and is stated to be safe to use without risk of causing your hormones disrupted.
I am skincare and makeup obsessed and I absolutely love testing beauty products and different brands to share with all of you. I always give my honest opinion and thoughts about them. So you guys can have the option to pick and decide on the products that specifically work for you. But getting older has made me make changes in my lifestyle and go with healthier and safer options such as a cleaner diet and being more conscious about the ingredients I put on my body.
A year ago I was introduced to Vapour Beauty, a natural luxury makeup brand, I really wanted to give it a try, and without really knowing that it’s a non-toxic brand, I just tried it and loved it! I absolutely love the pigments and it has become one of my favorite makeup brands not only due to the quality of its ingredients but because it’s approved by EWG (Environmental Working Group). I also love 100% Pure a wonderful brand also verified by EWG. This organic natural brand has not only makeup but skincare, body, and haircare products. This is a little bit more pricey but it’s worth it.
I know that trying to find the right non-toxic makeup on a budget can be totally overwhelming. So girl, if you are looking for a safe, non-toxic, and cruelty-free makeup brand you can definitely check this option. I especially love the contour stick and lux conditioning tint which can be used as a blush, lipstick, and also eye shadow. So it’s really convenient and it looks so beautiful on the skin.
Examine the labels of your cosmetics and skin care products carefully, and learn to recognize ingredients that are harmful to your skin and to your health. Don’t be fooled by the words ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ on the front of the label. Many products contain at least one or two natural or organic ingredients, but they may also contain harmful synthetic chemicals as well. Whenever possible, choose products with 100% natural ingredients such as essential oils and herbs. Your skin will love you for it! You can always check the ingredients on EWG Skin Deep Database.
