The Very Best of Organic Beauty

By: Meaghanne O’Connell –

It’s no secret organic products are beneficial for us.When it comes to beauty, we can help make the planet a better place while also looking and feeling gorgeous. Organic beauty products cut out any synthetic fragrances and dyes, which tends to irritate the skin and scalp, leaving you vulnerable to breakouts. So, if you’re looking to try out some of the best organic beauty products out there to freshen up your beauty routine and Mother Earth, we have a few products to help get you started.


Syracuse is preparing for a cold and windy Winter season, so body butters are perfect to help your skin get ready for the dry and freezing temperatures we are about to experience. 100% Pure’s Coconut Whipped Body Butter smells like summer and contains all the good ingredients needs to glow.


Who doesn’t love voluminous, silky smooth hair that smells like roses and is good for our earth? “Love Beauty and Planet” refuses to use parabens or other harsh chemicals their products, which is why your hair will feel incredible after your first wash. If you happen to dislike the smell of roses, there are various other scents to choose from like lavender, coconut, and sandalwood (all equally as heavenly) that will work wonders on your hair.


For those of us who tend to have super dry skin, face oil is perfect for giving your face a boost of hydration. Just take a few drops on your hand and gently rub it on your face before bed. We love the Virgin Coconut facial oil from Shea Moisture. You will wake up feeling rejuvenated and ready to go.

“Juice Beauty” has a range of organic beauty products to choose from, but one of their best products is their Phyto-Pigments Flawless Serum Foundation. It’s the total package: no silicones, sulfates or other unnecessary chemicals and gives you incredible hydration with its vitamin C and E packed serum.

To finish off your makeup routine (or to give your face a refresher), we love ArtNaturals makeup setting spray. It locks in your makeup all day, but also gives you a natural, hydrated look.


We can all relate to the struggle of using a chunky eyeliner that pulls at our eyelids. With Petit Vour’s Organic Eyeliner, that’s no longer an issue. This creamy formula will glide over your eye quickly and fuss free and your will be ready to go with your perfect cat eye in no time.

100% Pure also produces makeup, and their Fruit Pigmented Ultra Lengthening Mascara will give you voluminously healthy lashes while conditioning them with every swipe you put on. What more do we need to say? This mascara is worth obsessing over.

Pacifica makes a ton of beautiful eyeshadow sets, but their Pink Nudes Mineral palette is a showstopper. It contains all the bendable, natural colors you could possibly need to give you a sultry smoky eye for a Friday night out, as well as a natural shades for a long day of classes.


If you’re looking for a vibrant lip color to try out this fall, Lavera makes gorgeous lip products and their lipsticks have been rated among the best for their vivid color and buttery formula. The shade “Pink Fuchsia” is a standout beautiful plum color that will complement any outfit.


BH Cosmetics brushes have been a cult favorite for applying everything from eyeshadow to cream bronzers. Their brushes are organic and make your makeup look flawless. Better yet, they’re vegan and cruelty free, so you can feel just as wonderful as you look when using them.
