Safety is a growing and important concern when determining what makeup to use. Your health is affected by everything you put into and on your body – including makeup that stays on your skin for hours. Your skin is an organ that absorbs the compounds that lies on its surface – whether it is natural ingredients or toxins. The skin acts like a barrier to foreign products, but it only keeps a portion of the toxins out, absorbing some into your bloodstream. Minimizing your exposure to toxins is the most effective way to protect yourself and one way to do that is using natural makeup.
