The only thing better than finding the right kind of makeup, skin or hair product that works with your tone, style and overall look is knowing that it’s 100 percent natural. Thanks to advances in FDA law, products being sold under “natural” labeling must actually be how they portray themselves on the retail shelf, in your shopping cart, and in your medicine cabinet or makeup bag.
Here are the hottest plant-based beauty products that will help add that hop in your step:
Rahua Hair Care
Of course you want to resist sudsing up with chemically induced shampoos and conditioners, but then comes the concern that the uber-natural ones won’t fully do the trick of washing and cleansing your hair. Rahua, made from five simple ingredients—Ungurahua oil, Palo Santo (bringing that rich forest scent), quinoa (yep, your fave starch), and coconut and shea butter (because why not?)— promises not to leave your strands super oily and smelling funky.

Dr. Hauschka Foundation
You love foundation for the coverage it offers—just one layer and the obnoxious pimple that just popped up before your big presentation and those brown spots from too much sun suddenly disappear. But when you think about applying a makeup that covers your entire face—nearly every pore included—you definitely want something chemical-free that won’t harm or seep into your skin. That’s what makes Dr. Hauschka’s brand so great. It’s natural—with coconut and macadamia nut oils and pomegranate as some of the more appealing ingredients—but still provides full coverage.
