6 ways to Green Your Makeup
Green your make-up collection by opting for make-up that relies on plant-based and organic ingredients or naturally occurring minerals in lieu of those that are full of petrochemicals, harmful preservatives, and eco-unfriendly mined ingredients. Up your green impact by also choosing make-up that comes in minimal packaging, or those packaged in renewable or recyclable materials.
From oil refining to talc mining to synthetic chemical production, conventional foundation may smooth the skin, but it creates havoc for the earth. Make the switch to plant-based and earth-friendly ingredients.
You've got nothing to hide if you choose a natural, plant-based concealer, free of petrochemicals and harmful synthetics.
Choose a blush or bronzer with certified natural, organic ingredients. Whether it's pink, peach, or tan, opt for blush that’s Leaping Bunny certified and free from talc, petroleum, and coal tar colorants.
Choose formulas free from petrochemicals, harmful talc, and coal tar colorants. Minimize your eco-impact by choosing a multi-purpose mineral makeup encased in a paper compact and wooden pencils.
Eyeliner made from naturally occurring minerals is safer for you and the environment than those made with coal tar colorants, synthetic preservatives, talc, and more. Up you green impact by opting for eye pencils in place of plastic pens.
For long, lush lashes, pass on the parabens and nix the nanos—opt for a natural mascara that's free of harmful toxins.
