It is true, women and girls have experimented with cosmetics throughout history, be it for confidence-building to feel more powerful and ready to face any situation or the joy of being playful and creative.
However, with the growth of the cosmetic industry came increased use of synthetic ingredients which contain harmful chemicals. The average women can put up to 515 chemicals on their bodies every day with makeup, perfumes, lotions, mascara, and other beauty products. Many of the leading brands use the more economical synthetic ingredients, containing toxic chemicals that are mostly untested for human satey.
Thankfully there are now a swag of businesses providing safer, non-toxic options. Introducing bellanaturally, on online boutique, offer a carefully selected range of natural, no/low toxic beauty and eco-products. Making it easy for you to shop for cosmetics, skin care and baby products.
Q1. What do you do?
We are an online green beauty store specialising in green beauty, organic skin care and non-toxic personal care. We support brands that carry various certifications such as Ecocert, Cruelty Free, Vegan Society, EWG etc because we dislike green washing!
Q2. What got you started in the chemical free industry?
Finding out how many unnecessary and scary chemicals are in our beauty and personal care products. We decided to jump on the green and clean beauty wagon and live a less toxic way of life!
Q3. What makes your product or service different?
We are a small business with a niche customer service ethic. We are locally owned, support local or fair trade brands and aim to educate as well as provide a great online shopping experience – fully self-service website, with the backup of tailored assistance if required – by a local person of course!
Q4. What has been your biggest obstacle?
Convincing people that natural and organic works just as well if not better than the chemical laced brands! Plus many copycat competitors in the market.
Q5. What is your most interesting/best TIP to help families reduce their chemical exposure?
Start small and don’t be afraid of trying different products, but most important of all have the patience to commit to less toxic way of living for the sake of your health.
Q6. Is there another non-toxic business that you think is great & would recommend?
We love Naturally Organic hair salons and the Queensland based brands we stock (sorry our answer is a bit biased here!), although in saying that, all the brands we carry have a strict selection process before appearing on our site!
** Want to know what is in your cosmetics?
Download the Chemical Maze or EWG’s Skin Deep app, make a turmeric latte, take a moment out of your day to sit with a couple of your cosmetic or personal care products and work your way through the ingredient list.
Once you are aware of what you are putting on, in, or around you and your family there is no turning back. Bellanaturally is your next stop!
