There are many reasons to choose organic cosmetics over traditional varieties.

Furthermore, purchasing organic, eco-friendly products supports sustainable industries from a variety of sectors, and cuts down on the amount of waste that reaches landfills.

Physicians Formula Organic Wear makeup is certified organic by EcoCert, which is the leading international organization that handles cosmetics certification. The USDA regulates food only, and EcoCert has developed guidelines that relate specifically to the cosmetics industry. As part of the certification, EcoCert guarantees that the ingredients used to formulate Organic Wear have been farmed with no pesticides, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or synthetic chemicals. In addition, the formulas for all products used are vegan, but consumers should keep in mind that the brush applicators are manufactured from goat hair.
