Are you thinking about manufacturing your own makeup line or just interested in finding out where yours likely comes from? This post is perfect for you. Without making this introduction longer than necessary, here’s the truth behind manufacturing makeup....
Ingredients You May Not Know Are Harming You
Some people don’t realize that shady makeup manufacturers include harmful ingredients to the user. Let’s say you use makeup every day before work. You could be absorbing up to 5 pounds of chemicals each year. That’s a lot of nasty stuff! It’s now more important than ever that makeup manufacturers use safe ingredients in their products. Working on making them healthier for consumers is a must. You can find these harmful ingredients in things like deodorant, nail polish, and even sunscreen. The more clued up you are about what’s in your products and how they affect you, the better prepared you’ll be when you go and buy/create your own. Here are some of the ingredients you should know about:
You should check the list of ingredients where possible and avoid these at all costs. If you plan on manufacturing your own makeup line, avoid these. There is a big call out there for makeup that is better for the planet and our bodies. It doesn’t matter if you’re focusing on eyeshadow manufacturing or moisturiser manufacturing. Make sure you’re making it as healthy as possible.
The skin can absorb more toxins from your skin care products than from your food. As the skin is the largest organ in the body, anything you apply to it will end up in the bloodstream. As our bodies can lack the things needed to break the products down, they accumulate over time. If you’re ever in doubt about whether you should buy or create something, ask yourself, ‘would I eat this if I had to?’. If you wouldn’t, there’s a good chance it should be used on your body.
