All About Natural Cosmetics and Beauty Products
Recently, we have added refillable, Zero Waste, natural cosmetics and beauty products to our products that we supply.
Many common cosmetic products include microplastics and contribute to a large amount of plastic waste. This is why there has been an increase in the manufacture of natural cosmetics and beauty products.
What Are Natural Cosmetics?
As the term ‘natural’ is not regulated by the FDA, USDA, or EU, there is no legal definition as to what constitutes natural cosmetics and beauty products. What is considered natural varies from person to person, so as a buyer or a creator it’s up to you to decide what your view is. A vague description could suggest that natural cosmetics largely contain ingredients that are found within nature, without being chemically altered.
Also, they won’t contain any ingredients that may have adverse effects on the environment. When searching for natural cosmetics and beauty products, it is advised that you should avoid:
- SLES, SLS or Parabens
- Genetically Modified Ingredients
- Artificial Preservatives
- Synthetic Colourings or Fragrances
- BPA Plastic
Things you should look out for that give indications of being naturally formulated are phrases such as:
- Cruelty-Free (No ingredients tested on animals, no animal ingredients, no animal tested products)
- Free or harmful chemicals, irritants or preservatives
Ingredients such as silica, clay and mica are all examples of natural products. Make sure you read the ingredients label thoroughly before you purchase natural cosmetics, just in case they aren’t natural at all.
