OK, so be honest. When it comes to taking care of yourself, what are your non-negotiables?
We make promises to our bodies and minds every day about the foods we eat, the medicine we take, and the self-care we need. But when was the last time you thought about the ingredients of what you are putting on your skin? That’s right – we want to talk about what goes into your cosmetics, skin care, and makeup.
The State of the Cosmetics Industry
Sadly, not everyone pays attention to these issues. Did you know that cosmetic manufacturers have no legal obligation to report health problems from their products to the FDA as long as they are using non-banned substances? Even worse, that list of banned substances is NOT long enough. That’s why it’s so important to be mindful of what you’re applying to your skin.
Let’s do a little experiment. Think of the brands making safe, non-toxic makeup and cosmetics products. In fact, you can expand beyond makeup brands to any company making “safe” or “chemical-free” products. Does the brand messaging, packaging, and marketing represent you and your lifestyle?
At Beyond Brave, we don’t think that healthy, safe products have to come in basic colors and not perform well. We believe the brand you choose should represent who you truly are in a vibrant, exciting way. In fact, you should follow us on Instagram and facebook to see that we’re far from boring.
Your Skin. Your Makeup. Your Choice.
So why do we care? Why should YOU care? Because it’s your body. It’s your skin. We forget that our skin is an organ — the largest organ of your body!
We get it. There’s so much noise out there about products being all-natural, fragrance free (ugh, don’t get us started on that one….), and better for you. We also know this topic can be overwhelming, but it matters because your health matters. That’s why we do all the extra work so you never have to worry about putting our products on your skin.
