In this time of 2012 and recognizing the importance of taking care of ourselves and the earth on which we live together, it has become a loving act to create eco-friendly products of all varieties. We now have access to eco-friendly products for house paint, pest control, gardening, detergent products, and bathroom products. Now there are also awesome products available for beauty in cosmetic lines from foundation to mascara to lipstick. It is exciting to know that as we, ourselves, create beauty, we can also take care of the natural beauty around us by making choices that benefit everyone. What a wonderful opportunity to paint a beautiful face of sustainability.
There are many reasons to choose eco-friendly cosmetic products. Some of us are challenged with skin sensitivities to chemicals and fragrances that are part of synthetic product lines. Natural products take out skin irritants like titanium dioxide that have metals in them that are harsh on our skin. By creating natural cosmetics we also keep products from being tested on animals. Imagine using a powdered foundation made from arrowroot, a natural growing plant. By using this type of foundation not only are you getting to enhance your beautiful self, you also get the healing properties of the natural plant working with you.
