Chemical free natural makeup products are the perfect alternative to traditional cosmetics. Traditional makeup has a tendency to look fake, clog pores, and cake up. Products that come from nature allow women to make healthy chooses that are chemical free, look great, and are good for the skin.
Departments stores are filled with shelves overflowing with cosmetics that most women would never purchase if they knew what they contained. Harsh chemicals, lead, and mercury are just a few of the ingredients that have been found. No one in their right mind would intentionally apply these substances to their skin.
Recently a study was conducted on women’s lipstick. Four hundred different brands were included in this study. The findings showed that most commercial lipstick included a significant amount of lead. According to the United States food and drug administration the lead levels fall into the category of “safe” amounts for human exposure. Many disagree.
