Lipstick League Asks: Does Organic Beauty Matter To You?

Question of the Week: Is a beauty product being labeled green, natural or organic a selling point for you?

You know what? It's not. Not because being environmentally responsible isn't important or because I'll slather almost anything on my face. (Honestly, I will, though.) The reason I don't care if something is natural or organic is simple. Almost everything in the beauty-world is snake oil. Or at the least, a so-so product jhuzzed up with super slick marketing. How do I know that a natural mascara is better for me than the one with the time tested and proven preservatives? I don't! I love to watch products grow and develop. And I love the idea of cleanly sourced ingredients and I really love the idea of ending animal testing. But until we have something in place like Eco-Cert, I'm not jumping on the bandwagon. If anything, I'm giving you side-eye until your prove yourself to me.

What do you think? Do you care about natural, green or organic ingredients? Let's discuss! One small comment request: If you sell products for an MLM, please state that in your answer. No more cheating in the comment section, thank you very much. Not that I don't love you, but I don't want to hear about your cracker in mineral oil or how switching to organic cured your gluten disorder.
