By now, you should know that I love clean and green beauty and hate gross toxins in my body products.
You probably hate toxic ingredients in your makeup and body products just as much as I do.
Did you know that in Europe, there are over 1,300 toxic ingredients that are banned from being used in cosmetics.
In America, there are 10.
Side note: When the cleaner and greener products work great- why even add parabens, fragrance, sodium laureth sulfate (and the list goes on)?! UGH. Ok, moving on.
SO, what can we do about it? It's hard not to feel completely helpless. I am only one person. What can I do?! I can't make a change! That's why it's so important to work together! We are a green beauty army! We are a force to be reckoned with! Au Naturale Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands ever. Their products are incredible. Incredible wear, incredible staying power, incredible coverage. I'm a fan for life. Their founder, Ashley was tired of products not being in line with her values. So she decided to create her own line of makeup. Go, Ashley! You rock. Don't ever change.
Au Naturale's products are cruelty-free, vegan, gluten-free, non-nano, non-toxic, ethical and paraben-free. To find a company that encompasses all of those values, is so rare.
They've created a #CleanBeautyLobby petition and are taking it to Washington, D.C.! I commend and respect Au Naturale Cosmetics SO much. They're not only committed to making great products, but they are changing the beauty industry! They're actively trying to change what we put on and in our body. They won't stop until "labels on cosmetic ingredients are transparent, toxic ingredients are banned and a new beauty standard is established"!
I recently was their Lobbyist of the Day and this is what I had to say (I'm a poet, who knew?): "I'm apart of the #CleanBeautyRevolution because I am sick of having to compromise health for beauty. There's no reason to continue putting toxins on and in our body all for the sake of beauty. I can't wait for the day where I don't have to carry around a dictionary with me to the store to look up ingredients on the back of packaging to make sure that it's safe.."
I'll be placing another order today! Have you tried Au Naturale's products yet?! If not, what are you waiting for?!
Also! The cute shirt that I'm wearing will be available to purchase soon! Make sure you get one (or 8)! I've already worn mine like 4 times this week!
Thanks for reading, friends! Let's change the beauty industry!
