Complete List of Vegan Lipsticks
It feels great (even empowering) to wear the perfect lipstick, but not those toxic ones that’s killing you slowly everyday. Today is National Lipstick Day, let me devote this day to save lives. (Literally! You can too if you forward this article.) Do you know that the average woman retouches her lips 2-14 times a day! How many pound of lipstick is that in a year?

Just a refresher of why we stick to VEGAN & CRUELTY products and not just CRUELTY-FREE ones: So when a beauty blogger or a Pinterest post says these are their favorite CRUELTY-FREE products, this doesn’t really mean the products are free from toxic and harmful chemicals. The BEST choice is to pick what’s vegan, cruelty-free and natural at the same time!  (For extra precaution you view the CHEATSHEET to shopping green, such as scanning a product in the Think Dirty app or checking EWG etc etc.) Do not trust the labels.

What’s in your lipsticks?

Toxic Lipsticks Alternative Vegan

LEAD- a carcinogen and a PROVEN neurotoxin is dangerous to fertility especially to pregnant women and children. So don’t underestimate the danger of your toddler trying out your lipstick for fun.

SYNTHETIC or PETROLEUM WAXES: such as Microcrystalline Wax or Polybutene which aren’t too harmful but causes allergic reaction.

ARTIFICIAL COLOURS: Derived from coal tar known to cause cancer and neurologic diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Phthalates – an endocrine and reproductive disruptor.

MINERAL OILS: The glossy shine from lipstick which dries out the lips and sometimes could cause / induce allergy.

Parabens- enacts a lipstick preservatives. Famous endocrine disruptor and carcinogen. (But don’t believe a product when it explicitly labels its packaging that it’s “paraben-free”, still check out the ingredients)

BHA and BHT are used to stop the fats in lipsticks from going rancid and may contribute to cancer and tumors.

Synthetic Fragrances:  Amongst the top five skin allergens, causing topical reactions like contact dermatitis. They are known to be carcinogens, they do cause birth defects and central and nervous system disorders too.

Artificial Anti Aging: (Poly) methyl methacrylyte (PMMA), synthetic polymer beads erases lip “wrinkles”. It’s linked to severe allergic reactions and cardiovascular issues.
