What are the best natural makeup brands

Natural cosmetic make-up: what you need to know and our top 5 brands

Whether against impurities, pale skin or after a long night - foundation, concealer, powder & Co. quickly help you regain a beautiful complexion. Especially those who use make-up on a daily basis should take a look at the ingredients. Because conventional products often contain a range of questionable or even harmful substances.

Natural cosmetic make-up not only conjures up perfect skin, but also additionally cares. Nevertheless, natural make-up has to assert itself against some prejudices. Many have concerns as to whether natural cosmetic make-up can really keep up with conventional make-up in terms of coverage and durability.

We are convinced: Once you have found the right organic make-up for your own skin type, natural cosmetics are in no way inferior to conventional products. On the contrary: It not only conjures up a perfect nude look, it usually comes too without animal testing and with purely natural ingredients out.

With natural cosmetics, this does not come into the tube

The best thing about make-up in organic quality is that it also cares for the sensitive skin on the face with valuable oils such as shea butter, almond oil or olive oil. But it not only contains natural ingredients, but also dispenses with those that are neither healthy for the skin nor good for the environment.

You can find an overview here questionable substancesthat are taboo in natural cosmetics, but are often found in conventional products:

  • Parabens and Phthalates. Both are used as plasticizers and are suspected of being hormonally effective.
  • Paraffins - the beautiful word for crude oil - not only pollute the environment, paraffins also clog your pores and can thus promote impurities.
  • Silicones, which are also often made from petroleum, seal the skin and prevent it from absorbing nutrients. This will make it dry out quickly.
  • Synthetic fragrances and preservatives can trigger contact allergies, irritate the skin and lead to redness.
  • formaldehyde is a solvent that is one of the supposedly carcinogenic substances.

It goes without saying that we don't want these chemical substances in make-up. After all, they easily get into the body through the skin of the face and can cause irritation and redness precisely where they are supposed to be concealed. Reason enough to use natural cosmetic make-up. But be careful: natural cosmetics are not a protected term.

So that you can be sure that your make-up really does without the named critical ingredients, you can use these three seals as a guide: NaTrue, Ecocert and BDIH. You can find out which criteria the seals meet in our article on natural cosmetics.
