We beauty lovers wear makeup daily, but we seldom think about the ingredients we’re putting on (and around) our skin, lips, and eyes—until our faces freak out, break out or dry out. No matter your skin type, there’s a growing body of evidence that says it’s not good to saturate yourself with harsh fragrances, dyes and chemicals every day…but short of skipping cosmetics altogether, there doesn’t seem to be much you can do to avoid it, right? Wrong.
Most or many of Physician’s Formula products are free of fragrance, parabens, and gluten, as well as being hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and safe for those with sensitive skin and eyes. They also do not test on animals. Best of all, their prices are extremely affordable and you can find their products for under $20 at most drugstores. Try their Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Tinted Moisturizer; it will give you a natural beauty look and the sun protection you need this summer.
The 100 Percent Pure website promises vegan cosmetics “formulated with high performing antioxidants [and] naturally occurring vitamins and essential oils.” They use fruit pigments to dye their makeup products naturally. They offer lipsticks, foundation, cruelty-free makeup brushes, eye makeup, blush, and more. Try their 100% PURE Gemmed Lip Gloss (Fruit Pigmented) for a long-lasting, natural flush of color.
3. Ecco Bella
Ecco Bella calls themselves “an activist company,” which means that they are against animal testing, support organic farming and ethical ingredient sourcing, and don’t use any ingredients in their products that are harmful for consumers or the environment. Most of their products are vegan and they are all made out of organic ingredients. Since they use a limited roster of ingredients and exclude harmful chemicals like fragrance, parabens, and alcohol, their products are ideal for those with sensitive skin. They offer eye makeup, blush, foundation, and our favorite, Flowercolor Lipstick which comes in 17 pretty colors.
4. RMS beauty
RMS beauty products are truly amazing: luxurious, high-performing and good for you. They’re made with organic ingredients like coconut oil (the base of all of their products), cocoa butter, shea butter, castor oil, and jojoba oil. They do not test on animals and they use recyclable packaging. They offer brushes, powders, bronzers, eye makeup, lip colors, and more. Their Living Luminizer has a cult following, and it’s no wonder: it’s totally gorgeous and works on every skin tone.
5. Bite Beauty
Bite Beauty makes all-natural, organic lip products in Toronto. Their tag line is that their lip products are healthy enough to eat, since they are made out of organic ingredients such as shea butter and natural oils. You can purchase their lipsticks, glosses, scrubs and masks from Sephora, and we really love their Bite Beauty Matte Crème Cream Lip Crayon Pencil.
6. Ilia Beauty
Ilia products are made of up to 85% organic ingredients and kept in recycled packaging. Try one of their beautifully radiant Multi-Sticks for a healthy flush of color on your cheeks. They also make mascara, setting powders, illuminators, and tinted moisturizer, the latter of which comes in 6 shades of every complexion.
Tarte Cosmetics are cruelty-free and gluten-free and made without harmful ingredients such as parabens, mineral oil and sulfates. They have a huge selection of cosmetics in gorgeous packaging and in tons of shades. And honestly, we do mean tons—they’re one of the most versatile organic makeup companies out there. Start with one of their bestsellers, like Light, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara.
8. Josie Maran
All of Josie Maran’s products are infused with organic, ethically sourced argan oil, which is known for its hydrating and beautifying properties. The argan oil used in their products is sustainably harvested from women’s co-ops in Morocco, which benefits both the environment and the workers. Try the Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation for a glowing, natural beauty look.
