Organic Cosmetics: The Best Wordwide
Hello beauties! Today I have a guest post for you detailing some of the best cosmetics from around the world. I must say I’ve only tried 1 out of the 5 brands mentioned (Yes to!- which at first I thought was a good brand but contains some unsavory ingredients!)…but their descriptions really make me want to try them all! Take a look and tell me which ones you’d like to try in the comments section.
Organic Cosmetics: The Best Worldwide
With more and more information surfacing about the amount of potentially harmful chemicals in cosmetics, many people are now opting to go green. Organic cosmetics sales have risen steeply in the last ten years and it is not surprising when you hear that common cosmetic ingredients are suspected of being carcinogenic, allergy causing and simply unhealthy for our bodies long term. Here are five organic cosmetics from around the world and why we think they are a great alternative to standard non-organic products.
The name is not the only eye catching thing about this range of organic products. There are shampoos, lip balms, body lotions and face creams all of which are at least 95% natural. The packaging is fun and bright with each product range based around a fruit or vegetable. There are carrot lip balms, which includes beta carotene, cucumber hair treatments and grapefruit body cream to name a few, all of which have been devised to give effective results with no parabens or nasty chemicals.
Neal’s Yard Remedies
Neal’s Yard have been producing organic and natural products for years and so have a wealth of experience up their sleeve. This body polish combines the gentlest of scrubs, made from rose seeds with high quality antioxidants and the result is a high end, effective but gentle, face scrub which doesn’t damage skin. However, the best thing about it is the price with a 100gram tube costing just £11.70. When many organic products cost upwards of £25 this is a little bargain.
Origin’s Purifying Tonic
Origins have a special range called organics which, as you can imagine, contains natural ingredients and caters for those of you who prefer using as little chemicals as possible. The range has USDA Organic certification and are all pretty reasonable when it comes to price. The purifying tonic contains willow bark, a natural exfoliant, organic lavender alcohol and is great for those that want to remove all their makeup gently and effectively.
Caudalie Anti-Aging Face Tan
Fake tan has become hugely popular over the last few years and has come a long way since the streaky tans of the 80s. If you aren’t keen on the usual high street tans which contain chemicals, this could be perfect for you. Caudalie uses natural active ingredients which give you a glowing tan and are biodegradable. There are no parabens or petrochemicals in it but this doesn’t affect your colour – you can’t get better than that!
Persian Organic Body Lotion
Persian Rose are a leading Hong Kong organic cosmetics company and offer beautiful products at very reasonable prices. This organic body lotion has the subtle scent of rose and will keep your skin subtle and soft without the use of artificial emollients, parabens or any nasty chemicals which could cause damage in the long term. Available from several online retailers, it also comes wrapped in such beautiful packaging it would make a great gift for a loved one.
