More and more of you are interested in organic makeup and pay attention to the composition of the products they buy. For many, the organic certified makeup wrongly means a make-up and specifically for this article, a mascara of less good quality. Let’s see how organic mascaras are just as effective as others and we’ll give you a selection of organic mascaras.
The history and composition of mascaras:
Basic, mascara was created based on antimony powder, which is black rock with bluish tints. This powder was used primarily to cure diseases and infections of the eyes. It is about 1880, that a chemist, Eugène Rimmel, decides to develop this cosmetic from oil and petrolatum. With the years the mascara evolved and it is in 1917 that the modern mascara was created with coal and petrolatum.
Unlike mascaras from supermarkets, in addition to being certified organic and natural, organic mascaras are not tested on animals and are therefore certified “cruelty free”. The ingredients of the composition of organic mascaras are 98% of natural origin and the remaining 2% are from organic farming. Natural ingredients have many benefits other than the aesthetic aspect, such as the protection and nutrition of your eyelashes.
Today, more and more cosmetics are certified organic or are made from natural products. This evolution of organic and natural cosmetics is due to a growing demand for this kind of cosmetics to have a better skin with natural products and therefore safe for the body.
Many people, not using organic cosmetics, are convinced that they are less effective than products found in supermarkets and especially much more expensive. But in addition to having a perfect composition to do no harm to your skin, organic or natural cosmetics are just as effective as the products of supermarkets and do not cost more. It is sure that the plants, oils … used to create these mascaras have a high value. But as we have seen in our top of the best mascaras on the market, the prices vary between 4 and 36 €, while the organic mascaras vary between 7 and 24 €, so between a mascara not even necessarily high-end chemicals and an organic mascara for you to choose!
