Natural Face: Best Organic Foundations, Blush, Powders

These organic products are not tested on animals

So you want a completely natural face using only organic makeup. I gotcha. One question I'm getting a lot these days is about natural makeup. Women want to know what products they can buy that are as close to "organic" as possible. They want as few chemicals on their faces as possible and they absolutely don't want products that have been tested on animals. To honor their question, I did a deep dive into products that meet the most rigid requirements. In this list, you'll find organic makeup that has not been tested on animals.
