Unmasking the Truth: Clean Beauty Myths Debunked!

It's fair to say that we live in a world that's increasingly conscious of wellness and the environment. Because of this, the clean beauty movement has gained immense popularity. However, it has also been met with skepticism, with some people questioning its effectiveness compared to traditional cosmetics. Truth be told, that was me about 10 years ago! In this blog, we're going to debunk some common myths surrounding clean beauty and shed light on the positive aspects of making the switch to low-tox makeup.

Myth 1: Clean Beauty Products Are Less Effective

One of the most persistent myths about clean beauty is that it doesn't work as well as traditional makeup. And yes, this may have been true 10 years ago but we've come along way. Today, this misconception couldn't be further from the truth! Clean beauty products are formulated with high-quality, natural ingredients that can be just as effective, if not more so, than their conventional counterparts.

For example, many clean beauty brands use plant-based oils, antioxidants, and other nourishing ingredients to create makeup that not only enhances your appearance but also promotes skin health. A perfect example of this is our Serum Foundation which contains Seabuckthorn Oil, Kiwi Seed Oil and Pomegrante Seed Oil: all powerful antioxidant.

Myth 2: Clean Beauty Products Are Expensive

Clean beauty doesn't have to break the bank, and you can find affordable options that are both safe and effective.

Moreover, investing in clean beauty can be a smart long-term decision for your skin as many ingredients in traditional cosmetics can prematurely age the skin! By using products that prioritise natural and non-toxic ingredients, you may reduce the risk of skin irritation, allergies, and other adverse reactions.

Myth 3: Clean Beauty Is Only About Makeup

Clean beauty is not just about makeup; it encompasses skincare (check out our friends at 11:11 Lab), haircare, and personal care products as well. Choosing clean beauty products extends beyond cosmetics to your entire self-care routine. These products put your wellness first by avoiding harmful chemicals that can be absorbed through your skin. Companies like Modere are leading the way when it comes to clean living products. It's a big reason why we chose to partner with them earlier this year.

Switching to clean beauty products can contribute to a healthier lifestyle, reducing your exposure to potentially harmful substances that are found in many conventional personal care items.

A final word; Embracing the Benefits of Clean Beauty

Clean beauty is not a compromise; it's an enhancement of your beauty routine. It offers a wide range of effective, affordable, and diverse products that are good  for your overall wellness and the wellness of our planet. By dispelling these myths and embracing clean beauty, you can not only look good but also feel good about the choices you make for your body and the environment.

We know many of you feel overwhelmed at the thought of making the change to clean beauty and I know exactly how you feel. When I made the decision to switch, just over 10 years ago, I had no idea where to start. I took a breath, choose to remove ALL my products that contained synthetic fragrance and away I went. I've never looked back.

So, why not give it a try and experience the positive transformation clean beauty can bring to your life? We're here to help you every step of the way.
