You put in a lot of effort to take care of your skin and body-but is your makeup ruining all of your hard work?
Many popular cosmetics contain potentially damaging additives such as fragrances, parabens, and phthalates.Thankfully, as the makeup industry grows more companies are releasing makeup that is “clean” or more naturally based.
It might be time to take another look at your makeup and swap your products for some that are gentler on your skin and your environment. At AllPeople we understand the importance of naturally based cosmetics. Here are some of the cosmetic brands we are excited to carry!
