The Best Organic Lipsticks

These days, there’s an artificial ingredient or hidden unwanted surprise in just about everything. Grrr. If there’s one cosmetic we could seriously do without hidden toxins, it’s lipstick. Conventional lipstick contains ingredients like petroleum, parabens, artificial fragrance, petrochemical emulsifies and more. With what we understand now about the effects these chemicals have on our hormones and overall health, do we really want those going straight into our mouth? Thankfully, there are some fantastic and affordable organic alternatives out there. You will spend a little more than you would at your local pharmacy, but these lipsticks won’t cause health problems, in fact they’ll protect you from them. We took a look at some of the most attractive organic lipsticks on the market and then dug a little deeper to examine the ethical practices of the companies that sell them. We selected some of the best by range, user-review, ethical practices, and of course style. Here’s what we came up with for the best organic lipsticks.

100 Percent Pure makes fruit pigmented makeup and of course lipsticks. If you're looking for a luscious shade of purple you no long need to rely on red and blue unnatural dye to make that happen. Rather, 100 Percent Pure make lipstick hues with ingredients like cherry and blueberry. We'll take it! Their lipstick line comes in glossy and matte, but we think their organic matte lipsticks are ingenious. If we had to pick just one, it would be Marrakesh. Nothing screams "look at me" quite like dramatic plum lips.

Their practices are extremely transparent and they aimg to "get safer products into the hands of everyone."

That is our only concern as this company's ethics are fantastic- and we understand that using natural safe ingredients comes at a cost to the company. If you need a trusted product that lasts, try the organic lipsticks from BeautyCounter.
