There is no reason to subject yourself to a chemical bath just to have a little fun. Try these natural and organic beauty products to protect your health and your beauty.
Josie Maran Cosmetics
This amazing brand, created by model Josie Maran, incorporates Argan Oil and other natural ingredients to create luxurious and long-lasting beauty products. They are also reasonably-priced for the organic value, at approximately $22 for a lip/blush stain and $22 for a hydrating lipstick. The beauty products are not tested on animals, are paraben free, contain no synthetic fragrances, and are organic and recyclable. Not to mention that they are beautiful on your skin and hair.
If you love decorating your eyes, Josie Maran has an amazing coconut watercolor eye shadow. It is made of 50% coconut water and is beautiful. It costs $18 and comes in a range of colors from Rainforest Green to Playa de la Pink to Polynesian Purple. This product is also biodegradable and vegan.
Every woman has to have CC Cream these days. Having a hard time finding organic choices to keep up with the rest of the women who wear cosmetics? Head over to Juice Beauty, a natural makeup company, that has their bestselling Stem Cellular CC Cream. It is made of certified organic ingredients that also happen to be award winning and cruelty free. In addition to being organic, these products often are more effective and look better than chemical-laded options.
Juice Beauty also has a list of ingredients they do not have, a list of forbidden ingrediants. This partial list includes no parabens, gluten, petroleum, EDTA, sulfates, silicons, artificial dyes and colors, talc, and many dozens of other chemicals that can cause damage to our bodies.
Ecco Bella is another organic beauty company. In addition to makeup and creams, they have natural shampoos and conditioners. Your hair will appreciate the break from harsh chemicals that strip hair of its natural oils. They have an organic moisturizing vanilla shampoo that smells as good as it makes you look. It is biodegradable, gluten-free, and vegan. It features properties from coconut and sugarcane as well.
The best part is that Ecco Bella also produces natural perfumes. As they say, they use only “real essential oils from flowers, fruits, herbs, and spices.” Coming in several beautiful scents, these perfumes are also more concentrated than traditional perfumes, which also means they will last longer. You can smell amazing without wondering what these “fragrances” in your perfume are. Delicious scents include Ambrosia, Bourbon Vanilla, Lavender, and Lemon Verbena.
It is amazing that many of the ingredients in natural products are also in the list of Seven Superfoods for Good Health, grapefruit and coconut especially. Cocoa butter is another common organic option. Cocoa, coconut, and argan are extremely nourishing and hydrating, which is why they are used in most natural beauty products.
These are only a few samples of the amazing variety of organic beauty products that now exist. In the last 5 years, Organics have flourished. They can be found at stores such as Ultra and Sephora, where the natural and eco-friendly brand Josie Maran can be found. Organic products now come in everything from shampoos to liptsicks to toothpastes. You can now feel natural, healthy, and guilt-free while you wear your makeup- and that is something you cannot put a price on.
