9 Natural & Organic Mascaras Worth Obsessing Over

When Natural Beauty Meets Natural Ingredients

It’s baffling to realize that although the European Union has already banned more than 1,300 chemicals in personal care products, the US has made fewer than thirty changes since 1938. Everyday, we use products with chemicals that can lead to serious health issues for both ourselves and our environment.

The task of intentionally choosing healthy, safe, and clean cosmetics isn’t as daunting as it may seem. We’ve created this list of 9 natural and organic mascaras that help protect our planet and leave you feeling even more beautiful and confident.

The three have crafted a beautiful brand that recognizes that our skin is our largest organ and absorbs about 80% of what we put on it. Their cosmetics are created without using the potentially harmful artificial chemicals found in most conventional makeup and their products are never tested on animals.
