If you plan on buying makeup anytime soon, here are some tips for buying chemical free makeup.
Know the Brands:
One of the only ways you can know if you’re buying chemical free makeup is by knowing the brand. Do your research and know how the company operates ethically.
Read the Back:
For some reason most ingredients placed on the back of makeup isn’t even readable by the average person. One way to know what is in your products is to do a little research of your own. Try typing some of the ingredients in your current makeup online and see what comes back. Knowing what you know post-research will help you make the best decisions for buying chemical free makeup.
Find a Chemical Free Company:
Yes, there are tons of big time companies that create makeup and make billions, but look beyond that. There are hundreds of small time companies that also create chemical free makeup. Look for a recommendation from friends and family and go from there.
Know What to Avoid:
Sometimes you just don’t know what to avoid when it comes to buying makeup. Some makeups have heavy metals, PCBs (which are highly toxic chemicals), parabens, Toluene, and much more. When you think about it, it’s kind of scary what’s in makeup and other cosmetic products, so always take the time to know exactly what to avoid.
Know that Chemical Free Doesn’t Always Mean Chemical Free:
Unfortunately, some brands will even go as far to say they’re chemical free when they are not. This “chemical free” phrase is meant to be appealing to buyers and it is. And keep in mind that chemical free does not always mean natural either. Just be aware of what exactly is being put on your face and in your body.
Hope These tips for buying chemical free makeup will help you make the right choices when it comes to buying your next batch of makeup.
