As a serious skin care and cosmetics consumer, if you ever wanted to switch to an all natural alternative in the past, you were probably sorely disappointed.
What you could find in the way of products were probably only available in health stores and likely a local homemade product that you’d have to keep in your refrigerator (so it didn’t go off after a couple days!).
Not that buying local is bad in any way of course, but if you’re the type of lady who’s been searching for a premium, luxurious AND natural version of your usuals, you may not have had any luck. That’s all about to change...
Despite what the mainstream brands may want you to think, luxurious, non-toxic high fashion cosmetics are here to stay and are more readily available than they’ve ever been.
In fact, according to research firm Kline & Company, the chemical filled cosmetics sector is set to decline over the next two years while natural will continue to grow.
At Civilized Cosmetics we realized this shift in consumer behaviour and set out to disrupt the cosmetics industry by making green glam mainstream. Our products are formulated with our customer in mind first, helping to lessen the burden traditional chemical filled products have on our bodies.
This means that we are committed to:
- Banning Toxic Ingredients
It’s a common misconception that cosmetics only “work” if they have man-made ingredients added. This is not true of course, performance does not have to be compromised by adding unnecessary cancer causing and endocrine disrupting ingredients. Over 1300 chemicals have been banned in our formulation process and we are proud to bring you products that rank 2 or lower on the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetic Database.
- Banning Animal Ingredients
No life should be sacrificed or suffer for beauty and for this reason, we do not and will never formulate with animal or animal derived ingredients. It’s entirely possible (our products are proof!) to go vegan with your cosmetics. We are also Leaping Bunny certified.
In the quest of being 100% transparent with our customers, we’ve committed to banning green washing. This means that you will always know exactly what ingredients you’re putting on your skin and body when using our products. A complete list of flavors, fragrances, and proprietary formulas are always available on our labels. You’ll also know when we’ve used a safe synthetic as it will be called out as well.
It’s never been easier to choose cosmetics that are not only good for your skin, but don’t compromise on glamour even high fashion makeup artists use. The industry is set to boom and you’re at the forefront. Stay tuned for part 2 next week as we look into the common misconceptions around natural ingredients not “working”!
