The FDA doesn't regulate a lot of the chemicals in your makeup and skin care, and it's up to you to know what's in your favorite nail polish and foundation. We're lucky to live in a time when there are increasingly products with natural and organic ingredients available. Just adding jojoba oil to the formula, however, does not a safer, healthier product make, and it's sometimes hard to discern what's actually more health-conscious and ecologically responsible, and what's just got a label with pictures of plants on it. To cut through all the green-washing, we've put together 18 responsibly produced products that actually do the job. The majority are organic, and they're all free of parabens, phthalates, and harsh chemical surfactants. So click through and get a little green on your face.
