Think outside of the box.
In March, we switched off our lights for an houror more to commemorate Earth Hour. In April, it’s Earth Month — and this year’s theme is “Plastic…More than Pollution!”. As such, we are dedicating the entire month of April to providing you with high-quality informative content that affirms how we believe fully vegan, organic and natural makeup can enhance both your natural beauty and that of the environment’s. Natural beauty never looked so good!
The Earth Month Network’s decision is timely, especially when the burgeoning $532 billion global beauty industry is notorious for single-handedly generating massive outputs of this harmful chemicals. Now, it’s not harmful per se — but single-use plastic waste is causing more than pollution. Too many dead and plastic-bloated marine life are being washed up on our shores for us to continue ignoring this issue further!
If you’re a beauty aficionado, keep scrolling for 3 easy ways you can help reduce plastic pollution through your daily makeup product choices and purchases!
1. Analyze that purportedly plastic-free makeup product ingredient list…closer!
Many traditional, non-organic and natural makeup products hold a dirty little secret. If you look closer, plastic-based harmful chemicals can still be found in the ingredient lists of even fully vegan, organic and natural makeup products marketed as plastic-free! This is particularly more so for skincare, and even makeup products touted for their anti-aging benefits. The plastic-based harmful chemicals you need to be looking out for in your makeup product ingredient lists are: Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and Nylon (PA)!
Fortunately, with Liht Organics’ fully vegan, organic and natural base makeup product range, you don’t have to fret about any hidden plastics lurking within! For example, you don’t have to fret about a single ounce of plastic nasties lurking in the Liht Organics Anti-Aging BB Cream!
2. Look out for makeup products with refillable packaging!
As women, many of us have our most trusted makeup products we keep coming back to again and again — or in fact, purchasing again and again. However, have you thought about what happens to that finished makeup product once you have tossed it into your bin? According to a UNESCO report, the plastic debris from the makeup products you tossed out contributes to the death of more than 10,000 marine wildlife and more than a million seabirds and fish each year — the latter even travelling up the food chain to us!
In response to the outrageous amount of plastic contributing to marine pollution, many companies have turned to packaging their beauty products in refillable packaging. In fact, Liht Organics’ will soon be launching its refillable All Day Perfection Foundation and Illuminating Eyes Palette (3-Pan). When you’ve truly scraped every bit of the abovementioned Liht Organics makeup products, simply refill the pan!
3. Opt for paper Q-tips and reusable cotton rounds!
Lastly, we’ve got the best tip in the book for you! In fact, this is the most significant dent you can make on improving the plastic pollution problem.
Whether it’s removing your makeup with several swipes of a cotton round or correcting a makeup mishap with a Q-tip, you’ll find yourself blitzing through these single-use plastic-based beauty tools without second thought. Instead, get a pack of reusable cotton rounds and paper-based Q-tips that are washable and compostable respectively. In fact, Liht Organics’ fully vegan, organic and natural base makeup products Youth Elixir Liquid Foundation and Anti-Aging BB Creamis packed with skin-nourishing organic and natural minerals that can be washed off easily with a gentle foaming cleanser — no single-use plastic beauty tools needed!
