Safe Swap: Makeup Setting Spray

You know that when it comes to makeup and skincare… there is only ONE brand that I can stand behind 100% for safety AND performance.

My partnership with Crunchi is what launched this community, and what caused me to raise the bar for EVERY genre of product that I bring into my home, use for my family, and recommend to you.

But we’re still growing… and as a fully debt free company, the research and development phase of creating new products can take YEARS. So whenever we don’t have an item that you all ask for… I go on on an all-out hunt to help you ditch your toxic product of choice!

What a fascinating bit of research this specific product has been! As I dug through almost one hundred labels for “Makeup Setting Spray” I saw price ranges from $9 – $75+ but almost every formula had THE SAME slew of ingredients. Brand name mark-up is no joke.

Each formula was some combination of water, some beneficial botanical extracts, and then a whole slew of toxic offenders… EVEN on those labeled “Clean”, marketed as “Toxin Free”, and “Verified” by various organizations as safe. Whew… That jazz will get me fired up!

All except for ONE setting spray that I found contained any number of these hormone disrupting, hazardous ingredients…
❌ PEGs
✖️ PPG’s
❌ BHT
✖️ Phenoxyethanol
❌ Parfum
✖️ Disodium EDTA
❌ Propylene Glycol
✖️ PVP
❌ Avobenzone
✖️ Homosalate
❌ Octinoxate
✖️ Octisalate
❌ Ethoxylated Compounds
✖️ Talc
❌ Triethanolamine

WHAT’S TRICKY ABOUT THIS IS THAT IT’S NOT JUST TRANSDERMAL ABSORPTION TO BE CONCERNED WITH… IT’S DIRECT IN HALATION WITH THESE FINE MIST SPRAYS AS WELL.

Thankfully not only did I find a clean label… but I even ordered this product and have been using it with great success. I’ll be honest, I did NOT have high hopes for performance because I have tried their cosmetics and skincare multiple times — always to be left bummed out and making returns. The performance is NOT there on the majority of their products in my opinion.

 

But this product offers:

  • Blue light protection
  • Increased longevity of wear time
  • I apply a light mist OVER my setting powder and have found that on sweaty days, my makeup did indeed hold up beautifully
    The only bummer I have about this product is that it is in plastic packaging… ILIA Setting Spray

Have other genres of makeup/skincare that you can’t live without but Crunchi doesn’t have why? I’m always down to find and try brands for you 💛 Just let me know!
