Be Mindful of Your Makeup

Like hair care and other organic products, natural or organic makeup may cost a little more than at a conventional store, but costs are comparable to other specialty lines. Some natural or organic makeup might be found in health-food stores or whole-food grocers, but a larger variety is available online. Many of the natural makeup lines rely on powder foundations as opposed to liquid to avoid ingredients that are more likely to cause irritation. Many companies that produce organic skin care products also carry hair care products. A benefit of organic shampoos and hair care products is the absence of synthetic surfactants. These chemicals can persist through wastewater treatment plants and septic systems to end up in ground and surface water.
