Natural Lipstick Ingredients - What Ingredients to Look for in a Natural Lipstick

Posted by Natasha Eve on

So you’ve been trying wanting to try a lipstick made from natural lipstick ingredients for a while now.

You see so many natural lipstick products. And it seems like it’s so easy to pick one natural lipstick.

But for some reason, it’s not that easy to pick a lippie made created with natural lipstick ingredients. Every time you get close to finding the perfect natural lipstick, you’re not quite sure what natural ingredients to look for and you end up back where you started.

Not this time.

Because this time you’re going to be armed with the same tips, tricks and secrets that I know.

So give these tips a try and see if this helps you pick the right lipstick made from natural lipstick ingredients.

 

Read the natural lipstick ingredients. You’d be surprised to see some natural lipsticks have a long list of ingredients that may not all be 100% natural ingredients.

 

The lipstick colours in the makeup range most likely look so damn pretty. I’ve been there myself, admiring all the lipstick colours. But as soon as I read the natural lipstick ingredients I am usually surprised at what I find.

 

Even though there may be some natural lipstick ingredients, it’s not always 100% natural lipstick ingredients.

 

When you look for the ingredients list read all the natural lipstick ingredients listed, this helps you avoid the mistake of assuming that the lipstick you are interested in is made from natural lipstick ingredients.

 

 

Look for the following natural lipstick ingredients:

Castor Seed oil – also known as Ricinus Communis Seed oil. This natural lipstick ingredient is a fatty acid and really good at keeping skin moisturised as it attracts water. That’s a very helpful natural lipstick ingredient.

 

Coconut Oil – also known as Caprylic/capric triglyceride . This natural lipstick ingredient is another type of fatty acid. Because of it’s consistently it helps create a creamy smooth slip when applying your lipstick. It has a lot of natural skin loving properties such as being an amazing moisturiser which makes it a great natural lipstick ingredient.

 

Jojoba Oil – also known as Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil is more like a liquid wax. It’s similar to our skin’s own sebum. It’s a perfect natural lipstick ingredient as it can soothe dry, chapped lips. Not only that it locks in any moisture loss from your lips and keeps them nice and hydrated. I am definitely a fan of jojoba oil as a natural lipstick ingredient.

 

Cupuacu Butter also known as Theobroma grandiflorum (Cupuacu) Butter  is a unique natural lipstick ingredient. It adds moisture to dry skin and can hold 4 times it own weight in water. I feel it’s something worth having as a natural lipstick ingredient.

 

Cocoa Seed Butter – is a soothing fatty acid.

 

 

Petroleum, now this has many different names such as petroleum jelly, oil, and paraffin and is not a natural lipstick ingredient. It acts just the same as castor oil by creating a barrier from losing moisture but is not a natural lipstick ingredient.

 

Polybutene is a microplastic – this is not a natural lipstick ingredient. It is added to lipstick formulas because it can bulk up and helps keep all ingredients bound together.

 

Polyethylene – a miccoprastic – this is not a natural lipstick ingredient. They put it in lipstick ingredients because it can do a few things. It can thicken a lipstick formula as well as keep all ingredients from separating. Polyethylene can leave a thin layer so in some ways it adds a layer of synthetic protection.

 

There are many other natural lipstick ingredients that aren’t so natural. If you are not sure what it is, google the ingredient. That’s what I usually do.
