Best Organic Lipstick

We all want beautiful, irresistible, hydrated or kissable lips, but most of the designed products found on the market today contain a lot of unhealthy and sometimes harmful ingredients. Experts also say that regular lipsticks have a higher risk than other cosmetics because we absorb or ingest the chemical elements through our lips. We must select the products carefully, search for natural ingredients and free of artificial ones so let’s find out which are the best organic lipsticks.

What do we want?

First of all, we should always check the label of the lipstick because it will tell us if the product contains toxic substances or artificial ingredients like petrochemicals, parabens, lead, sulfates or synthetic fragrances or colors.

Organic vs. Natural

Secondly, we should know the difference between organic and natural because a lot of the products in the cosmetic fashion have multiple characteristics.
Natural products mean in generally that the product’s ingredients are not synthetical manufactured, but made with substances that we find in nature, with vegetable, animal or marine origins like plants or fruits.
But there is not a standard agency to regulate the use of term “natural,” so we can buy a product with the label “natural” that contains only 20%-30% natural ingredients.

How “organic” are these products?

Organic products mean that the ingredients are grown and collected in an ecological environment, without hormones, synthetic fertilizers, chemical pesticides, or genetically modified organisms. The National Organic Program, which regulates the products ”organic”, applies specifically to the food industry, not to the beauty industry. There are four categories of organic labeling:

– 100% organic: contains only certified ecologically produced ingredients;

– organic: contains minimum 95% organically derived ingredients;

These two categories can display the USDA seal and the mark of the organic certifying agent.

– made with organic ingredients: these products must contain minimum 70% organic substances.

-processed products containing ecological ingredients: have less than 70% organic ingredients and can not use the term “organic” on the main label, but can specify the organically produced ingredients on the information panel.

Because of the components processed in lipstick industry, a lot of the products can’t be entirely organic, most of them incorporate less than 95% organic ingredients.
Also, many brands use different organic substances in their products, and they advertise that a lot, but that doesn’t mean their lipsticks are certified organic. So, we should always read the label.
Thirdly, when shopping for organic lipstick, we should look for right texture, color selection, application or duration.
Nowadays these lipsticks are found in a large variety of colors suitable for our skin tone. Finding the right texture depends on what type of lips we have. Moisturizing and creamy lipsticks are best suited for dry lips and a maximum hydration so we can wear them all day. Satin and matte formulas tend to dehydrate, but also give volume to our lips.

All this been said, let’s find out the best organic lipstick on the market.
