Organic make-up has been around for some time, but only in the past few years have beauty lovers, the media and department stores started to take notice.
It all began with the launch of the hugely successful organic make-up brand, RMS, which provides pure cosmetics consisting of raw, non-toxic ingredients that heal and nourish the skin.
Even the packaging of RMS beauty products are environmentally friendly – made up of biodegradable, recyclable or reusable materials.
Featuring a vast collection of beautiful cosmetics, RMS changed the way people thought about organic make-up. In their wake, several other organic beauty brands have materialised. Here are our favourites:
American-based organic beauty brand, Vapour Organic provides a range of beauty products sourced entirely from pure minerals, essential oils and organic plant ingredients. They have won numerous awards for beauty excellence and one of their top products is the Atmosphere Luminous Foundation, which perfectly matches the staying power of silicone-based products.
An overnight sensation, Ilia launched in 2011 with its first collection of six tinted lip conditioners. In just two years the brand expanded to a range of 40 cosmetics. Beauty lovers fell head over heels for Ilia’s visually pleasing recycled silver packaging and the products inside didn’t disappoint. Now with a vast range of pigment-rich, organic make-up products – including concealers, lip-glosses and translucent powder – Ilia are making their ethical mark in the beauty industry.
This award-winning Australian organic make-up brand began in 2006 with a mission to prove to the world that natural make-up didn’t have to compromise performance or quality. Inika’s full natural make-up range is now available in 25 countries around the world and includes liquid foundations, mineral powders and graphic eye pencils in a range of colours and textures.
