6 Beauty Brands That Are Paraben-Free

6 paraben-free beauty brands

paraben-free makeup

Hi lovelies!!

I’m starting off the week with an informative beauty post, something that I’ve been really immersed in lately and couldn’t wait to share with all of you.

This past year as I started getting more into the beauty industry, I also learned the dangers of chemicals in cosmetics and have had to rethink a lot of the products I was using on a daily basis. In recent months, so many amazing, high-quality natural beauty brands have emerged and brought safer, healthier products into the market. I’m sure many of you have noticed all the ‘paraben free’ labels that have been making their way into more beauty products and skincare this past year. But the sad truth is, parabens are still found in most personal care and beauty products such as shampoos, body washes, foundations, lotions, mascara’s..the list goes on. Parabens are chemicals that are used to act as preservatives for your creams, shampoos, deodorants etc. Over the years, many studies have proved that parabens are harmful to your health and have even been linked to breast cancer.

Fun fact- “Our skin absorbs 70% of what we put onto it, meaning 70% of what we put on our skin ends up in our bloodstream.”

In light of this topic, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite paraben-free brands to add to your beauty regime! Even if you’re not looking to change your beauty routine at the moment, you can always start thinking about slowly adding more natural and chemical-free products into your routine.

herbivore cosmetics

1. Herbivore Botanicals

Herbivore Botanicals is a cruelty free skincare brand that is completely non-toxic, natural and safe. Herbivore is known for their hydrating and pretty (aka very Insta-worthy) face mists. My fave?! The Rose Hibiscus mist..it contains coconut water, Bulgarian rose and hibiscus..seriously the best cocktail for your face!!

Shop The Products:

RMS beauty

2. RMS Beauty

Not only does RMS beauty create products that are non-toxic and safe, but they nourish and heal your skin at the same time. Any RMS product, no matter if it’s a concealer or blush is made to hydrate and illuminate the skin.

Shop The Products:

ILIA cosmetics


I adore ILIA cosmetics..this brand uses some of the most high quality ingredients and you can seriously feel it on your skin!! They source their ingredients from organic farmers around the world and ensure that everything is made in an organic certified lab.


Shop The Products:


Sonia Kashuk cosmetics

4. Sonia Kashuk

“Great quality, great design and affordability so that all women can have the best in beauty.” This has been Sonia Kashuk’s matra ever since she started her brand, and one of the reasons why I have always admired this brand so much. Sonia Kashuk is one of the best cruelty-free drugstore brands out there and offers an amazing selection of natural makeup and high-quality brushes.

Shop The Products:

Josie Maran cosmetics

5. Josie Maran

Josie Maran is all about wearable and natural makeup, yet still feeling luxurious. I love that their makeup products contain key ingredients such as coconut oil and organic argan oil. My favorites are the illuminizer and coconut water color cheek gelee which both contain these natural oils and make your skin feel SO hydrated and silky!!

Shop The Products:

Juice Beauty

6. Juice Beauty

Juice beauty is everything you want in your makeup routine..formulated without parabens, silicones, gluten, and any chemicals that do harm to your skin. Their skincare products don’t even contain salicylic acid, but instead natural alternatives such as willow bark and organic fruit acids to clear your skin.

    I love Herbivore but most of these other brands are new to me! Once you start paying attention to the quality of your makeup (paraben free, cruelty free, etc) it’s so hard to find great brands, so thanks for sharing!

    Everyone is on a journey of using as much organic products as possible without sacrificing quality. Just by mere looking at the product brands, i would love to try out those Ilia lippies. They are great shades and look moisturising too

    I love RMS but really need to try the others as well. It’s so crazy how much nasty gunk there is in most of our makeup!! Such a great post topic, Jessi!
