Ingredients include green tea and coffee as well as rosehip oil and an array of vitamins and antioxidants. It is completely natural, gluten free, cruelty free and vegan.

#5: Lavera 6 in 1 Natural BB Cream
If you’re looking to switch from a traditional chemical-based BB cream to an organic version, your first stop should be the Lavera BB cream.
When it was first released in the US and Australia it sold out straight away! It works to even out your complexion, offer 24-hour moisture, smooth our any skin imperfections, refine your pores, protect your skin from free radicals and mattify your skin.
One color suits all skin tones.
#6: Luk Beautifood Lip Nourish
Lipstick so good, you can eat it!
Made from healthy foods such as cinnamon, lemon, mint, ginger, mandarin and orange, these lipsticks are 100% natural, super sheer and completely edible.
#7: Lavera Intense Volumising Mascara
Non-toxic and certified organic, this mascara is a must-have for green beauty lovers. Perfect for girls who want to have fat, thick, shiny and long lashes that are fast-drying and smudge-proof. Who says organic doesn’t mean effective!
Ideal for individuals with irritable or sensitive skin.
#8: Scotch Naturals Nail Polish
Made in the U.S., this innovative brand combines non-toxic and eco-friendly products to offer truly natural and healthy nail polish.
All of their products are non-toxic and biodegradable which means they are also eco-friendly.
As expected from such an aware brand, Scotch Naturals is vegan and cruelty-free company too. 100% toxic free, these nail polishes are safe for pregnant women, children or anyone who is unwell or suffers gluten intolerance.
Oh and did I mention their colors are to die for?
#9: Eco Tan Winter Skin
Want a perfect, organic and safe tan? Then you need to try Winter Skin by Eco Tan.
This is a 2 in 1 product offering both moisture and gradual tanning lotion. It dries instantly (no more standing up for hours waiting to dry!) and is very gradual, allowing you to build up to the perfect tan.
This product also claims to be streak-free and naturally fading so it looks completely natural. Made with natural, certified organic and vegan products.
#10: Mukti Roll On Deoderant
One of the best changes you can make to your beauty routine is to transition to an organic deodorant. Laden with dangerous chemicals and toxins, traditional deodorants clog your pores and are harmful over long-term use.
Mukti roll-on deodorant is made with natural herbal ingredients that eliminate bacteria while masking odours. It doesn’t clog your pores and allows your body’s toxins to release naturally and it is completely toxin-free, safe and effective.
#11: Black Chicken Remedies Love Your Smell
Did you know that many popular perfumes contain around 250 synthetic (and toxic) chemicals? But if you don’t want to go scent-free, then there is a solution.
The Black Chicken Remedies Love Your Smell Perfume Oil is a roll-on perfume containing a blend of sandalwood, nutmeg, carrot, ylang ylang, patchouli, lavender and geranium bourbon.
It is 100% natural and made with pure plant extracts and contains no alcohol or toxic chemicals.
It works by responding to your body temperature and has even been said to enhance your wellbeing and, wait for it, your love life!
#12: Dr. Tung’s Smart Floss
When you think about changing your beauty regime to be cleaner, greener and all around better for your body, do you ever consider changing your floss?
My bet is that you don’t.
After all, those of us who do floss regularly (I swear I do, Mr. Dentist!) usually just grab a supermarket brand and away we go. After all, it’s not like the floss is in our mouth for long, right?
Well, it turns out that floss is definitely something that you should look at changing. Not only is Dr. Tung’s floss 40% more effective at removing plague, but it is also made with a natural combination of vegetables and bees wax for safe and healthy flossing.
It is offered in a biodegradable container and is gluten-free.
#13: INIKA Certified Organic Pure Primer
If you’re a primer addict and can’t resist a little prep before you put on your makeup, then you’ll love the INIKA Pure Primer.
It’s completely organic and is designed to protect and hydrate your skin before you apply your makeup. It’s made with yummy ingredients like macadamia oil, avocado and apricot.
And for those of you not sure if you need a primer or not, here’s what it does:
- Preps your skin
- Boosts the ‘staying power’ of your makeup so it lasts longer and looks nicer throughout the day
- Evens out your skin texture for simply makeup application
#14: INIKA Makeup Remover
And to end on a clean note, we have the fabulous INIKA Makeup Remover. As expected, it’s certified organic (which is apparently a world first for makeup removers) and is suitable for sensitive eyes and skin.
Able to remove even the toughest makeup, this product is made with chamomile, jojoba, rose, aloe vera and calendula. It is also extremely nourishing and leaves your skin feeling smooth and fresh.
Before I say goodbye, I’d like to reach out to you all to share your favorite organic makeup brands. Sometimes it can be hard to track the best down and we often only know about the products available within our geographic region.
Which is why I’d like to ask you all to share your fave products that are all natural and all organic so fellow Queens can be informed. Sharing is caring, ladies!
