Looking for a new spring lip color to fall in love with? Whether you're environmentally-conscious, have sensitive skin, or just like trying new products, consider purchasing one of these natural lipsticks for a fresh spring pout. From smaller Etsy brands to major companies, finding natural and organic cosmetics has never been easier (or looked better!).
If you're wondering why you should consider switching to natural cosmetics, Huffington Post lists the reasons. The site explained, "Besides endocrine disruptors like propylparaben, other harmful substances in typical department store and drugstore lipsticks are as tocopheryl acetate and retinyl acetate, as well as titanium dioxide, which usually exists in nanoparticle form. Nanoparticles have been shown to cross the cell barrier and drive into organs, including the brain in humans, where they can cause long-term oxidative damage." In simple terms? Your $2 drugstore lipstick contains a bunch of not-so-good-for-you ingredients you might not even know about.
In regards to why avoiding harmful chemical cosmetics matters so much for lips, Stacy Malkan, co-founder of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics told GoodHouseKeeping, "The skin is highly absorptive, and we can ingest any chemicals that we put on our lips." I don't know about you, but I'd prefer my pout to be carcinogen-free.
