The 10 Best Natural and Organic Foundations For All Skin Tones And Types


By now, you’ve likely dipped your toe into some facet of the clean beauty world—whether that meant cutting aluminum from your deodorant, parabens from your skincare, or fluoride from your toothpaste. But one area you might be slower to change over? Your foundation.

Tara Foley, founder & CEO of clean beauty mecca, Follain, sees this all the time. “Women generally don’t switch up their daily makeup essentials as frequently as they do their skincare,” she says. “They’ll find the right foundation shade, then buy it over and over again. I think they’re nervous about the work it’ll take to find the best clean makeup for them—in addition to thinking clean might not stay on and work as well.”
