Is Organic Make-up Better For You?

Is Organic Make-up Better For You?

Another way to lighten the toxic load..... from our plant based healthier supplier of make-up Benecos

One of our main goals when formulating organic products is to exclude unnecessarily harsh chemicals from entering our body through our natural skin barriers. Whatever you place on your skin will undoubtedly be absorbed, this goes for shampoos, lip balms and eyeshadows, too! Unfortunately, some conventional brands will pile in the unnecessary chemicals to achieve the results they desire, but we have found a way to give you fantastic products without the need for these toxic chemicals by carefully formulating our products through trial and error, until we are completely satisfied with the end results. We don’t want to be too boastful, but our products sure do vouch for themselves! You can have long-wear matte liquid lipsticks, dazzling eyeshadows and nourishing lip balms without the need for toxic chemicals like parabens, artificial preservatives, or pesticides.

Have you ever tried a product before, recommended by one of your friends, but when you use it, you experience a weird tingling sensation? It is these unnecessary ingredients that are oftentimes the reason for these skin irritations and allergy flair ups. Without various testing it can be difficult to identify which ingredients are actually to blame, so at benecos we choose to cut them all out! That way, you are less likely to run into harsh chemicals that simply do not agree with your natural biology.

We intend for our products to work with your body’s natural functions, not against them. We are always seeking ways to improve on our range of natural and organic products, to ensure your skin feels happy and our environment stays healthy, too! Without using these harmful chemicals, we protect our farm workers, the environment and of course, you, from unnecessary artificial ingredients.

Now for the scientific stuff

At benecos we feel ingredients such as mineral oils, paraffins and silicones do not benefit the skin that is why we only use natural and organic ingredients. We carefully select ingredients that will only care and nurture your skin.

Mineral oils

are made up of hydrocarbon compounds which have a different structure to the skin meaning they cannot be absorbed so sit on top of the skin. They result in skin feeling soft and silky but it disrupts the natural regulation of the skin.


are known to clog pores and can enter the body when applying lipstick or lip gloss. They can be harmful when swallowed as they do not break down easily and may accumulate in the spleen, liver or lymph nodes.


are synthetically produced and added to products to give your skin the silky smooth feeling that everyone wants. However, as the particles are too big to penetrate the skin it creates the illusion that they are working when in fact it is just short term. They are also responsible for the long lasting effects of lipstick and lip glosses.
