In today’s modern society, it’s hard not to ignore the growing fad that has become ‘organic’. The desire for all natural and organic products has become so prevalent in our daily lives and vocabulary, that it is hard to ignore the true benefits or purchasing quality for our bodies. Our main exposure to organic has a heavy reference to nutrition from the food and grocery industry, but what about organic products that can be beneficial to your outer appearance, and are just as much a part of your daily routine as eating and drinking? We started thinking about the things we put on our face and how blind we are to the chemicals we are exposing our skin to on the daily. Your epidermis absorbs 80% of what you put on it. That scary fact alone sparked us to research further into the harsh chemicals our bodies are absorbing regularly. We did some research and compiled a list of cosmetic companies that are firmly rooted in natural organic ingredients that benefit not only your skin, but also the ecosystems and environment surrounding us. Below we review some of the most highly rated organic products on the market and dive into why their products are good for your face and the planet.
Dr. Hauschka’s makeup line is founded on the ideals of renewable growth and sourcing of materials, a simple manufacturing process, and international fair trade initiatives. Not only does the company produce quality organic makeup, they are also devoted to bettering their local communities through involvement in service projects aiding in the formation of small scale economic sustainability. A company dedicated to high quality products for our faces, as well as having positive impacts on the community is brand we can truly feel good supporting! Dr. Hauschka’s caters to a range of skin types designed to improve your natural complexion.
We recommend trying Dr. Hauschka’s Liquid Concealer for a smooth flawless finish. It’s a fan favorite and can be purchased directly through their website or other online distributors.
We admire Alima Pure for their sheer do-good nature and beautiful mineral based makeup line.

Josie Maran Cosmetics
Josie Maran Cosmetics might just be our favorite company on this list. “Luxury with a conscious” is the leading brand motto and could not be more fitting for this signature Argan Oil based cosmetic line. If you have not yet been exposed to the wonders of Argan Oil, now is the time. Argan Oil is recognized for its hydrating and rejuvenating effects on hair, face, nails, and body. All Argan Oil used in Josie Maran Cosmetics is sourced from Morrocan co-ops where local women harvest and earn fair wages through Fair Trade resourcing. Another bonus is the brand’s emphasis on eco-friendly packaging!
Introduce yourself to Josie Maran’s line with the GOGO Instant Natural Volume Mascara for a thicker, lengthened lash. Also try their Coconut Watercolor Lip Stains that have a stain at one end, and hydrating coconut water infused gloss on the other.
Vapour Organic Makeup
Vapour seeks to use the highest percentage of natural ingredients possible in their products. With a status of ‘Champion’ from the Environmental Working Group and Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, and a member of the Leaping Bunny cruelty free organization, it’s tempting to wear Vapour makeup based on laurels alone. Their long wear design, air soft weight texture, and variety of organic mineral and botanical based hues, means we have plenty of other reasons to wear them while looking and feeling great in our skin.
