Non-Toxic Mascara Recommendation?

QUESTION:

hello,

i'm looking for a non-toxic mascara that WON'T MAKE MY LASHES DROOP. my lashes are relatively thin, and anything heavy will cause them to droop in a heartbeat. is there such a forumula?

would appreciate a recommendation.

thank you!

DEBRA'S ANSWER:

My lashes are thick, so I've never experienced this. Readers...?

Debra :-)


COMMENTS:

There are probably some good natural mascara's out there. When I wear it(not often) I use Arbonne, so far it has not bothered my eyes too much. There are others check you health food store. Bare essentials is another I know of. Just make sure it is natural ingredients and not bat guano as most is made of this.

I love Ecco Bella mascara. I can't tell a difference between it and the popular brands. I don't have thin eyelashes, but I do have luck making them more visible by pushing them back toward my brow when they are wet with mascara. I think it works better than an eyelash curler. Good Luck!

I have been using Real Purity mascara - I like it quite a bit, but from what you've said, it may be slightly too thick. I purchase this from www.bewellstaywell.com - which is on Debra's List. They currently have two others - one from Beauty Wise, and one from Sante. I have tried the one from Sante and it is thinner - gives a more subtle look - I think you might like it from what you've described. On their website, the one from Beauty Wise is described in somewhat the same way - no flaking or clumping, easy to get off, etc. Also, they will have another one from Beauty Wise in the future. I liked the RP best b/c I wanted my mascara to be a little heavier, and b/c it had the least number of ingredients. But the other two might be a better option for you and I would imagine that they all have far less ingredients, and less toxic ingredients than what you would find elsewhere.

Hi - I know of a wonderful, non-toxic mascara. It's a swiss formulated - American made mascara. They don't make water proof because they haven't yet discovered a way to have a non-toxic formula for that type. But they're regular mascara is awesome. The name of the company is Arbonne. If you click on my website link below and go to "shop online" it will show you the full line of products. It doesn't mean you have to purchase anything when you enter into that area. There is a 35% to 80% discount available on on products with a $29 membership cost. All the products have a 45 day money back guarentee. It's at least worth checking out. I've been using them for 4 years and love all their products. They have the vegan seal and are all botanical and herbal based products.
Hope this helps!

I use the Ecco Bella with good coverage and no clumping BUT it runs and I have 'raccoon' eyes within hours. Is it just me? Is there a natural mascara that wears better?

POSTED BY JENNIFER :: COLORADO USA :: 09/20/2006 7:34 AM


thanks everybody, for the great mascara rec's! i'm checking them all out. i "do" have one more question, though... just wanted to verify which ingredients are "No-No's". i.e. 'parabens, oxides etc..' Is there somewhere i can find a listing of ingredients to avoid in cosmetics?

Thank you very much.

POSTED BY WT :: NONE :: :: CALIFORNIA USA :: 09/20/2006 7:51 AM


There are a number of online lists to cosmetic ingredients. I've found that they are each quite different in terms of what is recommended and what is not, ranging from what I would consider to be too lenient to maybe more extreme that is necessary for most people. A "no no" list for someone with MCS, for example, would be different that one for an average healthy person. Usually these lists are compiled by websites selling a line of products.

I recommend Ruth Winters' book A Consumer Guide to Cosmetic Ingredients. Ms Winters is a well respected independent researcher. She tells what the ingredients are made from and their health effects so you can decide for yourself if you want to use them or not.

Also, on Debra's List I've posted a link to the Envrionmental Working Group Skin Deep website, which is a free online resource about the safety or danger of cosmetic ingredients. Again, this is not a list of no-no's, but rather a comprehensive database by an independent organization in which you can enter an ingredient and get information about toxicity studies and how widely the ingredient is used.

Hi,
I want to double Debra's recommendation on Ruth Winter's book. I find that very helpful. Recently Consumers Reports has created a Green Choices site. On there they have a list of ingredients to be aware of. Here is the link directly to the personal care page:

Although I long ago gave up mascara (I wear glasses and my eyelashes are black....seems to be enough ornamentation for me in retirement)but I used to either use a bit of oil to darken (I think anything you weren't allergic to would work) and sometimes an eyelash curler. When I was growing up we all used to use a dry cake and wet it when we needed to use it....came with a little brush....we didn't, but you could wash it or dip in peroxide if necessary. I think keeping things dry until use so no bacteria can survive would be something that manufacturers should think about returning to.

POSTED BY JULIE :: IN USA :: 10/03/2006 4:08 PM


This is why I love this blog! We are so accustomed to using NEW products, sometimes we don't even think of the old tried-and-true products.

After being reminded of cake mascara by the previous commenter, I went looking for it online and found made by Longcils Boncza Cosmetics that says, "once used by Marilyn Monroe... now a favorite of Catherine Zeta-Jones. Stroking this lengthening formula of beeswax and rosewater on your lashes, you are reminded of kindred women who share this glamorous beauty secret. Made of only the purest of natural ingredients, the formula is gentle yet still provides a dramatic effect. You never have to worry about clumping or flaking."

While browsing I found other rave comments about cake mascara. This may be the solution...

Pay attention if you are going to order Bare Escentuals mascara from the internet. There is a company called Bare EsSentuals that tries to get customers who don't type in Bare EsCentuals correctly (note the "C" in the word "Escentuals"). Buy the real thing. If you take some time, you might even find some deals that are cheaper than the retail price!

As for drooping eyelashes, my aunt gave me a heated eyelash curler, and I have had really good luck with it. One way to get thicker lashes is to put a dusting of fine powder over the first coat of mascara before you put on the second coat. Whatever brand you use, the mascara will stick a lot better to your lashes without weighing them down too much; it sure beats putting on coat after coat of mascara to get volume!

I just went through this same question. I found mascara without parabens from Lavera. www.lavera.com

It's not cheap, but it's good.

POSTED BY HB :: COLORADO USA :: 10/06/2006 6:13 AM


i just purchased the Longcils Boncza mascara after reading the recommendation. when i received it and read the ingredient list i was very dissapointed and upset! it was not natural at all but just as toxic as other mascaras. i would love to use a cake mascara that is non-toxic. does anyone have any ideas? i'd even try making my own.

Ingredients:
Cera Alba, TEA Stearate, Acacia (water), Methylparaben, Parfum (fragrance), (+/-) CI77499, CI 77288, CI 77492, CI 77019, CI 77007, CI 77289, CI 77891

COMMENT FROM DEBRA: I wouldn't call this ingredient list "just as toxic as other mascaras, but seeing this ingredient list (which is not on their website, by the way) I agree they are being misleading by calling it "100% natural" as they do.

I want to explain what these ingredients are.

Cera Alba is another name for beeswax.

TEA Stearate is a petrochemical ingredient. The FDA considers it to be safe with qualifications. There is a distinction between the safe concentration in cosmetics you leave on (such as mascara) and products you rinse off. TEA stearate wll form carcinogenic nitrosamine compounds if mixed with nitrosating agents (which are not present in this mascara). TEA Stearate Page from Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep website

Acacia is another name for gum arabic, which is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gummy substance from the acacia tree. It is not toxic, but the acacia tree is very high on the list of allergens for people with pollen allergies, and gum arabic can cause skin rashes.

Methylparaben is a preservative made from petrochemicals. It has low toxicity.

Fragrance may be natural or synthetic, probably synthetic, as natural fragrances are usually listed as essential oils.

All those CI numbers are various colors of iron oxides that make the mascara brown or black or whatever color it is.

I looked all these ingredients up in Ruth Winter's book A Consumer's Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients, which I highly recommend.

I found another cake mascara at Vermont Country Storewhich specializes in simple, old-fashined products. It's ingredients are: Zinc Stearate, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Octyldodecyl, Stearoyl Stearate. May contain Ultramarines, Iron Oxides, Altalc 400 USP. Again, this isn't 100% natural, but this one is not scented and it costs only $7.95. They say it is "great for those with sensitive skin."

As for making your own mascara...you can! Somerset Cosmetic Company provides both a mascara recipe and the ingredients to make it. It's not for cake mascara, but contact them and they will probably be able to help you develop or find a formula.

Just a little history note. According to Wikipedia, "modern mascara was created in 1913 by a chemist named T. L. Williams for his sister, Mabel. This early mascara was made from coal dust mixed with Vaseline petroleum jelly. The product was a success with Mabel, and Williams began to sell his new product through the mail. His company Maybelline, a combination of his sister's name and Vaseline, eventually became a leading cosmetics company. Mascara was available only in cake form, and was composed of colorants and carnauba wax. Users wet a brush and rubbed it over the cake, then applied it to the eyes. The modern tube and wand applicator did not appear until 1957."

Perhaps making cake mascara is as simple as putting some iron oxides in beeswax or carnauba wax, or a combination of both.

Dr. Haushka brand of mascara- my current favorite. All-natural, organic, etc. Pro's: A light effect on the lashes. Low-clumping. Easily removed w/ water. Never bothered my extremely sensitive skin. Cons: Expensive. Need to let it dry 5 minutes, then wipe off minor flakes from your skin during the day (easily done w/ a licked finger).

POSTED BY MP :: CA USA :: 12/07/2006 1:50 PM


I have to agree with MP. Dr. Haushka mascara is the best! Excellent ingrediants, too! It won't weigh your lashed down.

I too love Dr. Hauschka's mascara along with its skincare line.

POSTED BY JILL :: MARYLAND USA :: 04/09/2007 3:42 PM


I would also like to wholeheartedly & enthusiastically recommend the entire Dr. Hauschka line. Everything this company makes is absolutely pure and free from animal testing/products. They've been around a long time, and there's a wealth of fascinating information on their website. Just use your favorite search engine to find them.

POSTED BY CONNIE :: IDAHO USA :: 04/12/2007 4:52 AM


Yes, I agree that Dr.Hauschka products are quite natural but I must point out that they are not entirely free of animal products - for example the mascara contains Carmine (CI 75470) which is described on their site as:

Carmine red colouring is extracted from dried cochineal beetles which live in colonies on the pad of the prickly pear cactus. It was used by the Aztecs for dyeing and painting and brought to Europe after the Spanish Conquest. It is one of the most ancient natural dyestuffs.

I don't personally feel that it is wrong to use carmine, or other animal ingredients such as lanolin, silk proteins, or beeswax, and it is certainly natural, but for those who do not care to use them - then these products are not the best for them either.

I like Minerelles Mascara by Shaklee. It's made with minerals and is opthamologist tested for contact wearers. It is water resisitant, but not water proof so don't wear it to a weepy movie or swimming. The whole Minerelles line is non-toxic and made with all natural ingredients.

Hey ... I am an artist and I use natural paints ... and I want to recommend you to make your own anything / everything / mascara. I would suggest using REAL Henna and/or REAL Indigo .. and/or mixing them, or using them with other Natural Dyes .... then mixing your chosen color into a natural wax base .... and perhaps adding any other ingredient such as a Jojoba Oil ... or other "Eye Friendly Oil" - if you need to or want to. .... Keep it simple with your color and wax base .... and VOILA ! ... You have your own - homemade - healthy product.

The simpler, The better, I say. And if you use WHOLE ingredients .... pure indigo, pure henna and pure beeswax .. you are using NATURE ... and that is the whole foundation for health in my opinion. Straight nature, straight from nature. Nothing man (laboratory) made and everything minimally man altered - is the way to go I believe.

The Earth has been doing it that way for 5 Billion Years .... sounds good to me.

www.earthues.com - check out for indigo
www.griffindyeworks.com - for indigo and nature dyes
and google for a natural henna, as well as a natural beeswax, and other natural dye choices.

And you can make some art with the extra ... paint some organic hemp canvas from ecolution - www.ecolution.com
Or paint a piece of wood and give it to a friend.

HAVE FUN !

Get into the spirit of discovery and adventure and you will find it / it will find you.

We found Physician's Formula make up to be very safe for us and we are very reactive. I didn't believe that a safe mascara could be made, but PF's is wonderful. No pain, no discomfort, no fumes, and it sticks where it should... on your lashes, not down your face.

We found Physician's Formula at a website Debra Lynn recommended... Skin Deep. It is a website that lists ingredients and their safety ratings. Thank you, Debra!

I was going to try Longcils, but I am highly allergic to all parabens...and I hate spending a lot of money on wand mascara only to have to throw it out in a month (I don't wear it every day, so it seems like such a waste of money, and that is the length of time it takes to develop an allergy to it). However, Honeybee Gardens has an inexpensive mascara (9.99) which isn't bad...still bothers me, though. I think I'm just going to have to stop wearing it altogether. Has anyone actually tried using iron oxide and non-petroleum jelly together? Would that be a safer alternative?

POSTED BY JANICE :: NEW YORK USA :: 04/21/2008 10:00 PM


I would like to add a vote for Sante mascara (I think it's available at Natural Solutions - they also list ALL ingredients there).

I have been wearing it for quite some time, it doesn't irritate, and does not flake or smear after a full day (unless I fall asleep with it on sometimes). Washes off with water, and a little gentle soap or cleanser. It is not a real "heavy" look,if that's what you like.

I have also been wanting to try Ecco Bella.

Dr Hauschka Volume Mascara works fine for me.

POSTED BY MM :: NEW HAMPSHIRE USA :: 02/10/2009 5:05 AM


Many supposedly green makeup products, like Eco Bella, still contain parabens and other ingredients that are not natural. Do your homework and read the ingredients. I spent a month researching truly green makeup and I found a couple of products I both liked, could afford, and are truly green.

Honey Bee Gardens- mascara online for under $10- is mineral based with no unnatural ingredients and gluten free. I found it for $5.99 on a low cost drugstore online, but cannot remember the name. They also have nail polish, lipstick, and much more.

Eco Bella is NOT 100 percent natural, as it contains parabens!

This website has some other suggestions, but I would shop around for best price www.bewellstaywell.com/Mascara

Just wanted to add a vote for Shaklee\'s mascara and other Minerelles items... parabens have been removed from the new formulations. Check out Skin Deep to get the real skinny on all cosmetics... your skin is worth it!

I've always had fairly thin lashes and prefer mascaras that are not too thick or heavy. I sell two all-natural mascaras at my retail and online store, Real Purity and Earth's Beauty. Most of my customers prefer the Real Purity because they love the thicker formula. However, my favorite is the EARTH's BEAUTY because it offers a much lighter coverage yet lengthens the lashes and gives them definition. Earth's Beauty's is the most natural looking, natural mascara I've come across. It comes in smaller travel size tubes or the full size, in Black or Dark Cocoa. This product is all-natural, PARABEN FREE and lasts all day! I've been using it for over 3 years now. The price is great too...travel sizes are typically $7.95 and the full size $12.95.

Ingredients: water, candelilla wax, organic beeswax, glycerin, glyceryl stearate (coconut derived), aloe vera, proprietary herbal extract blend, grapefruit seed extract, iron oxide, mica

I finally found Suncoat where I shop for my personal care and supplement items:

A bit over $10.00 U.S. where I buy it, $14.99 regular.

Available blue, black, and brown

Ingredients: Aqua (water), kaolin clay, vegetable glycerin, hydrolyzed Zee mays (corn) starch (natural sugar-based biopolymer), lecithin, Citrus grandis (grapefruit) seed extract, tocopherol (vitamin E), citric acid, iron oxide (CI 77499, CI 77491).

Free of PVP (polyvinyl pyrrolidone polymer), acrylic copolymer, VA (vinyl acetate) polymer. Free of fragrance, paraben, alcohol and glycol.

Vegan.

Suncoat is a Canadian company.

I liked Earth's Beauty, but it irritated my eyes by the second tube (I only use a tube for a couple of months before discarding, so the tube was new). This one hasn't bothered me yet. It is lightweight, but holds the curl and has good staying power. I checked the ingredients on Skin Deep first, and it is not too bad.

POSTED BY JANICE :: NEW YORK USA :: 08/24/2009 5:21 PM


I was surprised to read that someone was sensitive to the Earth's Beauty Mascara. I have quite a few customers who are highly sensitive to mascara and eye makeup but have been able to wear the Earth's Beauty and the Real Purity brands. Both are quite affordable too!

REAL PURITY is slightly heavier than the Earth's Beauty but it can be applied sparingly (it's still not as thick as conventional mascara). The ingredients are simply: Purified Water, Beeswax, Glycerin, Candelilia Wax, Cellulose, Pure Plant Extracts, Iron Oxide.

POSTED BY JOY :: NATURALJOYBEAUTY :: WWW.NATURALJOYBEAUTY.COM :: UTAH USA :: 08/31/2009 12:43 PM


I have used several natural mascaras (Dr. Hauschka, Jane Iredale) but they always smudge and by the end of the day I look worse than if I wore nothing at all. I finally found Korres which is also natural although a bit less than the Jane Iredale one but it holds up really well (no smudges, no running and no clumping) and I don't find it irritating at all (I have allergies and I am quite sensitive but I don't have MCS).

I also want to second Debra's recommendation of the EWG cosmetics database. It's a savior and it even lets you enter the ingredients of any product they haven't analyzed so that you can check toxicity.

POSTED BY JEANINE :: DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA USA :: 10/21/2009 3:07 PM


My favorite cosmetics are True Touch by Neways International. Neways has been around for a very long time and products are all toxin free.

I need length, thickness and darkness and get all three which I love. It is water-resistant, smudge-proof which I also love. I hate the racoon eys. They have 3 colors black, brown, or navy.

Here is a list of the Ingredients for the mascara ..
•Acrylates copolymer—A polymeric thickener commonly used in personal care products.
•Copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax—Used to give consistency and feel to the final formula.
•Hydroxyethylcellulose—A thickener commonly used in personal care products.
•Iron Oxides (CI 77499)—Inorganic compound used for color pigmenation.
•Lauroyl Lysine—This amino acid derivative helps to condition the skin and hair.
•Oleic Acid—This monounsaturated fatty acid is often used in cosmetics to moisturize the skin and hair.
•Panthenol—This derivitave of vitamin B5 helps to moisturize the skin and hair.
•Phenoxyethanol—Acts as a preservative in the product.
•Polyisobutene—Helps to thicken the product.
•Potassium Sorbate—Acts as a preservative in the product.
•Silica—Used to give consistency and feel to the final formula.
•Simethicone—Helps to prevent foam in the product.
•Sodium Hyaluronate—Helps to improve the moisture and overall health of the skin and hair.
•Stearic Acid—Used to give consistency and feel to the final formula.
•Trehalose—This helps to moisturize the skin and hair.
•Ultramarines (CI 77007)—A color additive.
•VP/Polycarbamyl Polyglycol Ester—A polymer used as a film former.

Hi there! I am a licensed Esthetician and I live in Pennsylvania.

I have searched high and wide for an all-natural organic product line that I would use on my own body. I found it!

I discovered a line of cosmetics/creams/shampoos/etc. for Men, Women, babies, and even dogs! It is called SHEAR MIRACLES at www.shearmiracles.net . All of their products are made from all organic and wildcrafted ingredients. So pure that they could be eaten! I have used their mascara and I really like it. I recommend that you purchase a mascara applicator and swipe it across the applicator that comes in the mascara tube. This will give you a controlled amount of mascara for your thin lashes. You can apply a second coating after the first is dry. Good luck on your search!
