Chemical free natural makeup products are the perfect alternative to traditional cosmetics. Traditional makeup has a tendency to look fake, clog pores, and cake up. Products that come from nature allow women to make healthy chooses that are chemical free, look great, and are good for the skin.
Departments stores are filled with shelves overflowing with cosmetics that most women would never purchase if they knew what they contained. Harsh chemicals, lead, and mercury are just a few of the ingredients that have been found. No one in their right mind would intentionally apply these substances to their skin.
A recent study found that the majority of women’s lipsticks contained a significant amount of lead. Over four hundred different types of lipstick was tested. While the United States FDA claims that the levels are safe, many are not convinced. One mother remarked that her young child had experienced a severe reaction to a children’s brand “approved” play makeup. The child’s face swelled to three times its normal size and was not recognizable. Fortunately the little girl recovered after a trip to the emergency room and medical treatment. This truly begs the question of what is deemed “safe” for use.
The largest organ of the human body is its skin. It is as important as the heart, the brain, and every other organ. Without it a human being can not survive. The skin has an amazing ability to be waterproof and absorbent at the same time. This mean that anything that comes into to contact with it may be absorbed into the blood stream. Certainly we can not control all environmental factors, but we can control what we eat and what we apply to our skin. People should know exactly what they are exposing themselves to.
Just as the human body relies upon nourishment in order to maintain balance and good health, so too does the skin. We have all heard “you are what you eat”. The question then becomes “what are we feeding our skin?”.
Traditional cosmetics generally contain preservatives, chemical dyes, and oil among other ingredients. For people with chemical sensitivity, acne, eczema and many other conditions this can be a recipe for disaster. Even those without typical skin conditions will frequently experience problems. This makes wearing traditional makeup impossible and certainly not a pleasant experience. In the past, many just did not bother.
Natural makeup products use fewer ingredients and no chemicals. They usually offer a measure of natural SPF. This leaves women looking great, feeling beautiful, and breakout free.
