Here at MindBodyGreen, we're all for natural, green, organic makeup. But did you know that government restrictions are VERY lax and basically undefined when it comes to ingredients and labeling on beauty products?
According to this excellent infographic from our friends at HealthFix.com, there are only 10 banned chemicals in the U.S. (compare that to 1,400 in the E.U.), and even brands labeled as natural may contain non-natural ingredients. If this makes your daily swipe of blush unappealing, we don't blame you.
Luckily, there's a solution to your green beauty dilemma: your kitchen! Check out the recipes below for homemade versions of your makeup bag staples and let us know which ones you plan to make.
