Organic food is all the rage these days, and for good reason. We want to put quality food into our body that is free of unnatural chemicals and preservatives. It makes sense, and it’s a healthier way to live. Similarly, women are also looking to use makeup with organic ingredients so they can feel better about what they’re putting on their skin, often on a daily basis.
One company that offers organic makeup is bareMinerals. This brand is stationed in San Francisco, a city that was well ahead of the organic trend in many respects. They’ve been around for 35 years, and are defined by natural products. They began with a specialization in mineral powder, but have expanded into general skincare products. Their most famous product is the SPF 15 Foundation. Other best sellers include Prime Time Foundation Primer, Mineral Veil Finishing Powder, and Correcting Concealer SPF 20.
Ecco Bella is another organic makeup company that is razor-focused on ethics. The brand does not test any of its products on animals and utilizes organic farmers to obtain its plant based ingredients. Going above and beyond, Ecco Bella also does not use any animal-based ingredients for its products (one exception is Carmine, which comes from beetles, but they are looking for a replacement). Their products are also gluten-free, and free of many of the artificial chemicals you may find from other makeup brands. Their most popular items are from the VitaminCells line, which helps combat aging and blemishes with natural ingredients like CoQ10, Lutein, Beta Carotene, and Vitamin C.
