Whole Foods Market believes it’s important that what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body. They have an entire beauty and body care area in their stores devoted to delivering the latest and greatest healthy, natural beauty products for their customers. Their Organic Body Care Standards help to ensure the products you’ll find on their shelves are truly as organic as they say–all personal care products with an “organic” claim must be certified by USDA Natural Organic Standards and contain at least 95% organic ingredients. So when you see a label with “organic” on it, you’ll know you’re getting a product that meets their standards and isn’t just capitalizing on a trend.

To create this lip, I first lined lips with Mineral Fusion Graceful Lip Pencil (a warm rosy brown). Then I layered Dr. Hauschka Red Quartz (13) Inner Glow Lipstick, a soft warm red, on top. As a final flourish, I topped off the lip color with a layer of Mineral Fusion Dazzle Lip Gloss, a medium rose with hints of beige. Natural beauty doesn’t have to be boring beauty!

One of the hardest parts for customers when shopping for more natural and organic beauty products is that it can be difficult to suss out who actually means what they say.  The government doesn’t currently require any labeling of organics in skincare, and this is why it’s incredibly helpful that Whole Foods Market has taken the guesswork out of the equation as the first major brand to make accurate labeling a requirement. Whether you’re looking for products for body, hair, skin, or makeup, you’ll find them at Whole Foods Market–and the brands and products they carry aren’t just throwing out buzz words; these brands stand behind their philosophies and embody them at the core. You’ll find brands like Gabriel, Mineral Fusion, Zuzu, Dr. Hauschka, Hemp Originals, and more.

For Northern California locations, Whole Foods is having a 30% Whole Body Makeup Sale from February 13th through February 17th. It would be a fantastic time to browse and get lost in their beauty aisles! And what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway featuring a basket worth $350 of Mineral Fusion?

    I just tried the alima all organic tinted lip balm and I love it. Very moisturizing with a hint of color!

  2. Marta González

    Love Burt’s Bees honey lip balm and eye cream. And L’Occitane facial care products and relaxing mists are indeed very good too.

  3. Olivia

    facial cleanser! ; )

  4. april

    The Yes to Carrots line. I’d love to try this too!

  5. Jay

    I use the juice beauty foundation in ivory and really like the feel on my skin and the color is the closest I’ve come in a brand that isn’t heavy on my skin. I also enjoy coconut oil for my hair and am thinking about getting an argan oil to try eventually.

  6. Jaime

    I have too many favorites. I love Dr. Hauschka’s skincare line, particularly the cleansing cream and melissa day cream. <3 Really seasonal though, the melissa cream is drying during the winter, though weleda has a cold cream that's nice during dry months. (…and Weleda's skin food is AMAZING for my hands.) For makeup, I think I'd have to go with bwc's natural infusion lipsticks.

  7. Brigette

    My favorite natural beauty product is my Badger lip Tint & Shimmer.

  8. Zoya

    Ok, I hope you ladies will find this comment helpful:). As an ex- whole body bodycare specialist in whole foods market, can strongly:) recommend the following products to check out:
    #1 Dr.Hauschka: love their cleansing cream, clarifying and facial toners; Lip balm – is one of the best products on planet earth (currently trying cle de peau lip treatment, can not really understand if it really works); facial masks (especially their rejuvenating mask. Everything that has borage oil is great for your skin. Neem nail pen – for your nails.
    #2 Sanitas skincare line (does not come from whole foods, but is a very clean line – no parabens etc.) Love to alternate this two lines. Sanitas is more like intensive treatment line, versus Dr. Hauschka more like a healing. Check out masks from Sanitas: Papaya enzyme mask; Pumpkin mask; Tea tree oil mask …
    #3 For shampoos, check out Earth science brand
    Same goes for the eye make up remover.
    #4 John Masters Organics is another, but more exoansive great line for hair care. Also LOVE John Masters Lip Balm. So inexpensive, and works Great.
    #5. For your body – check out Shikai Borage Therapy. Works Great for your hands as well.
    Here are just some of my faves,
    Also one more Michelle Vitamin C serum, is great for acneic skin.
