Is There Such a Thing as "Green" Make up?

Now that there is such a buzz about going 'green' - from everything to cars, food, to household items - I wonder if there is such a thing as green makeup? I searched for it online and stumbled upon this makeup company called Organic Wear.

We're not talking about psychedelic green eyeshadows here - the line of makeup offered in the Organic Wear catalog is made from organic ingredients. They are free from synthetic preservatives, parabens and harsh chemicals. Even the packaging of the products is eco-friendly: from the patent-pending mess free container to the paper compact which contains 93% less plastic than your traditional compact - you can really see why this is the first makeup line which has an Ecocert certification in the US.

The line of Organic Wear makeup includes a concealer, compact and loose face powder, matte finishing and bronzing veils, liquid bronzer, tinted moisturizer with sunscreen, compact bronzer and blush. One final note: since organic cosmetics are free from harsh ingredients, they are not absorbed into the bloodstream. So if you are looking for a way to make yourself look beautiful while doing your part in saving the environment, go for organic makeup and you'll never go wrong!
