Each country can determine which products are toxic or not, but when we talk about makeup, the most frequent ones are parabens and phthalates!



It is logical that the first reason for this list must be the fact that it does not have the heavy chemical ingredients found in conventional products! Parabens and phthalates, for example, are ingredients that, according to scientific studies, are linked to diseases such as cancer and type 2 diabetes. 

In addition to the chemicals mentioned above, most makeup companies use chemicals that have not even been studied to see if they can cause any type of harm in the long run. Oh, and remember that chemicals also negatively affect the environment! So, if you can choose the non-toxic version of makeup, do it!


Although using natural makeup doesn’t dispense the use of sunscreen, because it is composed of antioxidant and mineral ingredients, it usually offers a little sun protection! In addition, its composition acts to reduce or even eliminate the effects caused by exposure to the sun! Isn’t that awesome?


This is a reason that, thankfully, is not exclusive to natural products industries! The use of animals for testing products is something that is often done by the cosmetics industry, but when switching to a natural cosmetics brand, chances are that you will be opting for cruelty-free products!

In addition, most natural makeup products are vegan! Therefore, you will not only be collaborating with the end of animal testing but also with the end of animals’ exploitation! Do you want a more wonderful reason than that?


Makeups filled with chemical substances not only contribute to the appearance of certain diseases, but also to irritation and premature aging of the skin! The combination of chemicals such as petrolatum and sulfate can cause redness, burns, and itching. Furthermore, by applying unnatural products on your face, you may be preventing cell renewal of the skin, leading to its aging!

By choosing non-toxic products, you will ensure that your skin is receiving only natural substances – which may cause allergies, so look carefully at the composition to see if you are allergic to something!-, but will not cause irritation or stop the life cycle of skin cells!

When you choose natural makeup products you are helping not only your skin and body but also the entire environment and animals!
