Blush Ingredient Education

With that gorgeous Crave blush on my brain, I thought it would be helpful to share some blush ingredient education with two other companies that often use marketing techniques that simply are not accurate when you dig into their formulas… like “organic”, “all natural”, “chemical free”. Not everybody loves playing label detective (like I do!) and this one was an eye opener for me!! So let’s take a look…

🌱Do you see even ONE organic ingredient in the other two blushes? Nope. I’ve found that companies who throw around “organic” may have a select few ingredients in a select few of their products which is 100% the case with this comparison. You’ll find “organic” on their websites, but NOT in these blush ingredients.

🌱When looking for synthetic dye, just look for color names like “red” or “violet”… I spy a few of those in the bottom two formulas.

🌱We’ve already talked about our blacklist ingredients Talc and Phenoxyethanol (feel free to use that search bar to go back and find that info) and I spy both of those down there!

🌱I’m also of the mindset that if I can’t easily pronounce an ingredient…I probably don’t want it on my face, and I’m struggling with a couple of those questionable names…
