Lets Talk Lips

Lipstick

Lots of Cruelty-free ip cosmetic options

Lets talk lips.  Let’s cover cruelty-free lipgloss, lipstick and care products.  Let’s talk healthy, toxin-free lips.  I’ll admit I had a little panic attack when I read somewhere that regular lipstick wearers will invest between 4 and 9 pounds of lipstick in their lifetime.  Yikes!  Upon further research it seems that it’s a pretty tough thing to accurately measure so I decided not to completely freak out.  What I have found is that the number of metals in typical lipstick is concerning.  The FDA says that it’s all in acceptable limits but I have to wonder….are they?  The FDA is surprisingly lax when it comes to monitoring cosmetic ingredients so I’m suspect.  Here are a couple of interesting articles if you’d like to know more.

I figure, why take chances?  If you or your teenage girl love lipstick or gloss it might as well be free of anything that could accumulate in the body over time.  We exercise and we eat right so we need to take care of our outsides too!  Is it possible to find beautiful cruelty-free lipstick, lipstick plumpers, lipgloss plumpers or vitamin-infused lip products?  You bet there is, scroll down to see them.

The beauty of Cruelty-Free Lipstick and Cruelty-Free Lip Gloss is not just the obvious (and to me most important) benefit of not harming animals.  Indy companies without multi-national parent companies to answer to can formulate as clean as they want.  In my list below you’ll find all the lip products from the cruelty-free Indy companies that I support.  Please be patient with me as it takes time to get these products compiled (I don’t want to leave any out), but I’m working on it.  Check back often as I’ll keep plugging away at it!

I’ve provided a summary of information for each product.  Click the More Info / Purchase tab for more detailed information.

Camomile is an online store that offers a large selection of carefully selected cruelty-free beauty brands to enable their customers to shop with a clear conscience.

Clove and Hallow prides itself on its use of 15 or fewer clean ingredients in each of their products.  Don’t worry about what you deem as no-no’s in your products because this is genuinely toxic free cruelty-free make up. Their Clean15™ makeup products go through a strict formulation process during which they exclude carcinogens, endocrine and hormone disruptors, allergens and irritants, and animal by-products. They never use cheap or toxic filler chemicals, and the few synthetic ingredients they do use have been extensively researched and selected because they serve a real purpose within our formulas, such as preservation or pigment.
