Makeup is defined as care substances you use on your face to enhance it's appearance. So, what are these care substances? They are usually a mixtures of chemical compounds, some being derived from natural sources and many being synthetics. Doesn't sound too green now, does it? Surely those chemicals and synthetics have to be approved of by health organizations but they are still not natural. In general how much bigger is your ecological footprint, when using standard makeup?
New trend natural makeup - as old as beauty itself
Those are questions you have to deal with, if you are a standard makeup-user and want to be part of the Go-Green-Movement. Not though, if you swap your standard makeup for natural makeup.
Natural makeup is the new trend on the market - even if though it has been around for thousands of years and even longer. Archeologists are sure, that the old Egyptians wore makeup. Just think about the bust of the queen Nefertiti: She is not only famous for her astonishing beauty, but also her eyeliner. Surely she was wearing natural makeup, probably mineral makeup. The ancient Romans used beeswax, olive oil and rose water for wonderfully scented skin care products.
All natural ingredients
Nowadays natural makeup, such as skin care, is made of naturally derived ingredients such as herbs, roots, essential oils and flowers. These are combined with naturally occurring carrier agents, preservatives, surfactants, humectants and emulsifiers - everything from natural soap to oils to pure water. Natural skin care has to be made up of botanically sourced ingredients, that actually do exist No synthetic chemicals whatsoever may be used. The manufacturing must be aimed at preserving the integrity of the ingredients.
