What Does Natural Mean?

When applied to makeup, natural indicates that a product contains ingredients derived from nature, such as mineral pigments and plant extracts. Generally, natural cosmetics contain fewer synthetic ingredients than conventional cosmetics. Their formulas are less likely to include artificial fragrances, man-made preservatives and chemical dyes. Because there are no established rules regarding the use of the word natural on packaging, it's important that you read the ingredient listings of natural cosmetics carefully to find out what specifically is in each formula.

Organic Defined

Organic cosmetics are natural cosmetics that meet the requirements of a third-party organization or government agency and have earned special certification. In the United States, organic makeup is often certified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). To qualify for USDA organic certification, makeup must be made up of 70 percent organically grown ingredients. This means that the plants have not been treated with chemical fertilizers and pesticides and have not been genetically modified or irradiated. Other certifying bodies set their own standards as to what qualifies a cosmetic product as organic. All organic makeup can also be considered natural.

The Benefits of Organic and Natural Cosmetics

There are a number of reasons why you may wish to choose natural and organic cosmetics.

  • You can reap the benefits of ingredients that are found in nature and in some cases have been used for centuries.
  • If you are sensitive or allergic to certain synthetics like perfumes or preservatives, natural and organic cosmetics may help you to avoid them.
  • Natural and organic makeup often comes in eco-friendly packaging to further protect the planet.
  • The addition of natural plant and mineral-based ingredients can also provide skin care benefits. For example, products that contain aloe vera extract supply nutrients that are necessary for skin health and can ease irritation.

Eco-Friendly Tool Options

To green-ify your beauty routine even more, you can apply your cosmetics with eco-friendly tools. Environmentally conscious makeup brushes often feature handles made out of bamboo, recycled plastic or recycled metal. Bristles are normally naturally derived or made out of synthetic materials that are produced with recycled content. Sponges, swabs and cotton balls made out of organic cotton and other natural materials are also available for applying, blending and removing your cosmetics.
