Toxin-Free Body: Organic Makeup
When we first began the Maker's Diet, I was horrified to find that my beloved Mac makeup contained toxic chemicals. (The most common chemicals in conventional makeup are phenylenediamine, benzene, and formaldehyde).
I had an entire case full of a wide array of gorgeous eyeshadows, foundation, eyeliner, lip liner, lip gloss, and mascara. But as much as I loved my beautiful makeup, I knew it wasn't worth it to continue adding to my body's burden. So I went on a hunt. I settled on Bare Escentuals, but became somewhat disillusioned when I discovered that many of their products still contain parabens, a toxic preservative linked with breast cancer.
I just don't feel I can trust a company to be "natural" when they market some products with toxic chemicals, and some without.
But I wanted something similar to Bare Escentuals. I did some google searching, and finally found an AWESOME company named Jenulence, whose wonderful motto is, "If you can't eat it, don't use it on your skin!"
I tried out their foundation, which was cheaper than BE, and absolutely loved it. I'm totally hooked! In fact, I'm just about to order some more. In time I look forward to using their other products as well. I'm currently using HoneyBee Gardens products for my blush, eyeshadow, mascara, etc, which are also very high quality, but I feel that the Jenulence products meet up to my ridiculously high standards even more. :)
