What's In Your Natural Makeup?

What's In Natural Makeup?

What ingredients are you putting on your skin?

We all have a few products that are labeled "natural" or "organic" but have we checked those ingredients lately?

Most "natural makeup" and "organic skincare" products only contain 50-60% of the organic ingredients advertised and the remaining 40-50% are made of man made chemical compounds.

A lot of products are labeled as "all natural" but still contain damaging, synthetic ingredients such as parabens, preservatives, talc and bismuth oxychloride.  

A lot of women experience severe facial itching and irritation from popular mineral makeup companies ---which is caused by the addition bismuth oxychloride in the formula---a chemical compound that these companies add to improve the "slip" and texture of powder and liquid makeup.

What's even more alarming is that the FDA doesn't require makeup companies to disclose "all" of the ingredients in their products ---so sometimes you never know exactly what you're putting on your face and skin.

The best rule of thumb is to check your natural makeup and skincare ingredients label and understand that the "fewer" ingredients and those you can actually pronounce, will be the better choice for skin and your overall health.
