Go Green: Benefits of Eco Friendly Makeup
If you care about environment, you tend to live your life as much as possible eco-friendly. With only few changes to normal everyday activities, we can do a lot for our planet. Luckily for women who care about their look, we don’t have to give up using cosmetics, but it is important to switch to eco friendly makeup. What are the benefits of using environmentally friendly beauty products? Here we will list just four basic reasons why you should consider being both green and beautiful.
- Chemical-Free. Eco friendly makeup commonly utilize chemical-free organic formulas. In small doses chemicals do not affect us (and environment) in the short term, but if used for a longer period of time, they can have some reverse effects on human body.
- Cost Effective. Eco friendly makeup is economical. It might seem unbelievable, but when you buy eco friendly product, you get what you have paid for “in” product. Packaging and marketing costs are usually lower compared to makeup with fancy ads and packaging. Environmentally friendly makeup is often distributed with very little packaging and marketing costs.
- Biodegradable. Biodegradable packaging of environmentally friendly products means you will reduce the amount of lasting imprint on environment. Harmful materials and plastics are used rarely and in very small doses in environmentally friendly cosmetic products. In fact, the industry of beauty products have gone beyond using of recycled materials. Nowadays, some of the most green manufacturers embed seeds in wrappers and print in soy ink.
- Cleaner air and Livable land. Not only the ingredients, but the manufacturing processes have to be as green as possible if the product is labeled as eco friendly: Less pollutants, less toxins, alternative energy sources etc. And of course, no animal testing.
