The history of humans using foundation dates back to antiquity. In 200 BC, ancient Egyptians used foundation on their skin. In ancient Greek, having a pale complexion was considered fashionable. So, women and men applied chalk and white lead powder to lighten their skin. The wealthier Romans preferred white lead paste, which led to disfigurements and death. Back then, the fat used in making foundation was rendered from animal carcasses and heated to change the colour. Based on this short history, it's clear that makeup has come a long way since then. It's pretty delightful to know that one can currently use makeup without being afraid that it contains animal products or can cause disfigurement or death. Here at Peace With The Wild, we offer you cruelty-free, plastic-free, organic makeup. This means that the ingredients used to make these products are free from toxins or chemicals and are planted organically. These products are also not tested on animals, so you'll be pleased to know that you don't have to worry about harming other creatures. Living in harmony with the environment and other plants in our ecosystem is essential, and that's what clean and cruelty-free products ensure you achieve.
Often, makeup products like concealers, finishing powders, foundations, primers, and other products are made using lots of chemicals. But when you use an organic primer, mineral concealer, mineral blusher, and other natural cruelty-free and organic products, you're sure to feel so much joy and contentment in these. Even though companies don't use white lead paste or animal carcass oil to make these products, there are still other harmful chemicals that most companies use to create these products that seep into your skin slowly and eventually become detrimental to your health. They often contain fragrance, Parabens, Triclosan, Formaldehyde-Releasing Preservatives, Sodium Laureth, Sulphate, Retinyl palmitate, Retinyl acetate, Retinoic acid, Retinol, Petroleum distillates, and Phthalates. Even though this isn't an exhaustive list, it is among the common harmful ingredients you may find in most makeup brands that aren't organic, eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and natural.
Organic, cruelty-free, and clean products mean that you avoid pesticides that animals are exposed to in farming, which often means they find their way to the sky, causing pollution. Suing these amazing clean products also means avoiding uric acid (sourced from cows), beeswax, dead insect extracts, Butylated hydroxytoluene (a cause of skin and eye irritation), and Formaldehyde, which is linked to asthma and immune deficiencies. The old saying "beauty is health" applies to vegan makeup because cruelty-free and organic cosmetics aren't only good for our skin, animals, the environment, and health.
