OK, so be honest. When it comes to taking care of yourself, what are your non-negotiables?

  • Is it how much water you drink in a day?
  • Do you never miss a workout?
  • If you’re trying to live a healthier life, I bet you try to avoid certain foods in excess, right?

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 Beyond Brave Promise
Toxins are everywhere. And the scary thing? They’re even in the products you put on your skin! These harmful ingredients can cause respiratory issues, skin allergies, and even renal failure. But don’t take our word for it! Check out this list of 10 common toxins present in cosmetics.


At Beyond Brave, we believe that you only have one body, so we make the promise to you that we will only make safe, non-toxic make up for Brave Belles and Brave Beauties.

“Beyond Brave knows that being comfortable in your own skin means putting
safe, healthy things on it. That means beauty care products that are free of
hormones and toxic chemicals.”


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. 

Beyond Boring Branding

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.
