Best Chemical-Free Makeup Brands

posted in: Makeup | 13

As time goes on we are becoming more aware of what we put in our bodies, we realise that it affects our health in many ways and that certain ingredients we should keep away from. We are also becoming more aware of what we put on our bodies, unhealthy chemicals get absorbed into the skin and can affect us too. Before I get started on the best chemical-free makeup brands I think first I should explain what exactly chemical-free means.

What does chemical-free mean?

Chemical-free means that the product is made from natural ingredients and healthy for the environment and for yourself. Technically speaking every product is made out of chemicals because all substances, like water and air, are considered chemicals. When I use the term chemical-free, I am referring to products that are made from natural ingredients. I have put together here what I think are the best chemical-free makeup brands around today. 


Green People

Green People do not add any harsh synthetic chemicals in any of their products. Everything is made with natural, good for you ingredients. They have all types of products from hair and teeth, to products for babies. Their products look pretty impressive too. If you want natural then I highly recommend checking them out.

Nude By Nature

Nude By Nature is quite an unknown brand. However, they are worth knowing. They only use ingredients that are good for you. That means there are no chemicals, parabens, silicones, talc or bismuth. Instead of harming the skin as many products do, they claim their products help the skin improve.

lilah b.

I have to be honest here, I have never actually used any lilah b. products, but after looking into them they are definitely a brand I need to try out. The lilah b. motto is to simplify and declutter everything. In makeup, this translates as fewer ingredients in each product. So far, I like it! Their products are also free of gluten, parabens, phthalates, sulfates and synthetic fragrances. They are also vegan and cruelty-free. I will totally be doing a makeup haul here one of these days.

Antonym Cosmetics

I love this brand, I have their baked foundation which is one of the loveliest foundation ever. Many of their products are certified organic by an organisation called Ecocert (a very stringent European certification body that makes sure all ingredients are safe). This means that they have gone through an extensive and expensive process to become certified. The results were that it ticked all the boxes to be natural and healthy and good for you!

rms beauty

rms beauty has almost all their products naturally derived. You know a company is honest when they list their products that aren’t natural. This is what rms beauty has done. Click here to read the few products that have some synthetic ingredients to them. And all the other products are completely natural. They have a nice variety of products and colours.

My Thoughts

These are a few of the best chemical-free makeup brands on the market today. Keeping ourselves healthy has priority over everything, I’m sure you agree. I’m not quite ready to make that major shift to completely natural products, but slowly, slowly I am getting more natural and chemical-free products. These products help us feel better so its only natural to head that way:)

Have a great day,

    Hi Hollie,

    Thanks so much for sharing a good article to read about the best chemical-free makeup brands.

    So important to know more about this topic, I’m switching into a living more a natural life and makeup is part of my morning routine.

    Every time I go to the store to get a new makeup product I ask about which brands are chemical-free and not always I get a good answer to help me to get the right product.

    This list of makeup products will help me to get the right product for me!

    This post is exactly what I have been looking for. In my experience, my face is very sensitive to makeup, especially around my eyes. A lot of different products make my face oily or feel dried out if I have any makeup near my eyes they will feel dry and tired all day. I am so excited to check into some of these companies further and try out their makeup. I think I will start with the Lilah B because I agree that fewer ingredients = better.

    This is just the truth. Products with chemicals especially products for our skin has many disadvantages compared to products made from natural ingredients. I can proudly say products made from natural ingredients are the best because I am a witness. I once bought a body lotion online and after three days of using it, I began to notice some rashes. I had to stop it, went online for solutions and discovered that using the juice from Aloe Vera would heal it. I tried the solution and the rashes disappeared.

    Every makeup should be chemical free but the cosmetics industries wouldn’t do this. They are only after their own money and that’s why most of them produces makeups that are unhealthy to the human body. Some of the chemicals can lead to cancer but they don’t mind pushing these disastrous makeups to the market. Free chemical makeup is better if it’s actually free.

      True but on the flip side look at how many new chemical-free makeup brands there are. Slowly we’re changing it all!

    Hi Holly

    Like you, I really believe that we should only put natural products in our bodies.

    So your post is extremely helpful for everyone who feels the same way. It is not always easy to find products which are completely natural, but you have shown us places where they are available.

    I will certainly be checking up on your recommendations.

    Thank you so much for your help.

    Hi Hollie, the best treat we can ever give to our skin is going natural. There are so many beauty products that have harsh chemicals that do affect our skins in a negative way. Just like what we eat has a way of affecting our skins, the beauty products we use also has a way of affecting us negatively or positively. The importance of using natural beauty product cannot be over emphasized. It helps us pamper our skins and make our skins to age with grace.The products you listed are wonderful and is worth checking out, as I am for anything natural. I use green tea product, like their powder and deodorant etc. I don’t know why, but I love the rmsbeauty products you listed. I will definitely check it out.

      Chemicals do so much damage and we are surrounded by them in so many other aspects of our lives. The least we can do is avoid them on our skin!
