Whether you’re a natural makeup novice or clean beauty expert, here are some of our favorite brands to know
Organic, vegan, and gluten-free line Emani offers a full range of non-toxic makeup products from face bronzer and complexion illuminator to soy lash mascara. Founded by Michelle Doan, who dealt with acne and sensitive skin from her teenage years into adulthood, the line is formulated to deliver long lasting results for the most sensitive skin types.
2) RMS Beauty
RMS Beauty goes beyond organic ingredients since some certified organic ingredients can still be harmful. Instead, RMS Beauty creates products that are not only non-toxic, but that actually heal and nourish the skin. The brand guarantees using the highest quality ingredients available, ones that are raw, food grade and organic in their natural state. The complete line of products is free of gluten (with the exception of the volumizing mascara), GMO free, soy free, nano free, and they don’t test on animals.
We adore this 100 percent vegan and cruelty free line’s natural lipsticks. Unlike non-natural lip colors, Pacifica does not leave lips dry. The sustainable company also uses packaging that’s recyclable. Their goal is to have zero product-manufacturing waste in their factory, and they work with suppliers who have the same commitments.
This Silicon Valley-based company is completely free of all harmful toxins (we’ve previously featured them in our list of favorite natural skincare lines). Instead of using artificial colors for its cosmetics line, 100 Percent Pure derives its dyes from fruits.
While The Lano Company is not vegan—it uses lanolin, a waxy substance found naturally on sheep’s wool—it is all natural. The brand specializes in lip care, offering a solution for chronically chapped lips. Other natural ingredients include jojoba, vitamin E and natural oils. Try their non-sticky lip gloss in one of five colors.
6) Sisley Paris
A pioneer in phytocosmetology, which describes products made with plant-based extracts, Sisley Paris offers a luxurious line of non-harmful, natural products. We’re currently obsessed with their newly introduced Phyto-Lip Twists (available in 15 shades).
7) Tata Harper
Tata Harper’s line of cosmetics and skincare products are third-party certified as 100 percent natural, and nontoxic. This means the products are 100 percent free of synthetics and fillers. The line is also gluten free. Currently the cosmetics line includes lip and cheek tints, as well as a contouring and highlighting kit.
