So, Physicians Formula put out a line of all-natural, organic makeup: Organic Wear. The makeup line – found in drugstores! – is the first ECOCERT certified makeup in the U.S. Most ECOCERT products are found in Europe, as European countries have higher standards for ingredients used in beauty items.
“To ensure that Organic wear® holds the highest of eco-standards, most Organic wear® products are ECOCERT® certified organic. ECOCERT® is an internationally recognized organic certification that guarantees the genuine practice of environmental respect throughout the formulation and manufacturing of the product. The certification ensures that 100% of the total ingredients are of a natural origin. ECOCERT® is the leading European authority on organic certification, and the standards used by prestige organic brands” (organicwearmakeup.com).
“What are the standards of ECOCERT®?:
- No pre-treatment used in any of the raw materials found in organic formulas
- All suppliers must pass an extensive review before their raw materials are approved.
- All manufacturing and packaging facilities undergo a rigorous inspection
- All packaging must be recyclable.” (organicwearmakeup.com)
This is very exciting news and a great step toward the standard of safer beauty products. Now, my first makeup duo recommendation.
Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Concealer Stick
Light and strong, this concealer brilliantly covers dark circles and blemishes. Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Concealer Stick rivals many of its competitors. The stick applies smoothly and provides maximum coverage with an amazingly genuine effect. In fact, the true purpose of makeup is to enhance features and appear unnoticed. Mission accomplished Organic Wear. Application tip: follow application to eyes with a loose powder to set – this concealer is a little on the oily side. Do not set blemishes with powder. This tends to have an adverse effect and enhances any swelling. Bonus: drugstore find! This product contains glyceryl caprylate, a controversial ingredient with a low score according to comsmeticdatabse.com.
