I have been aware of Peacekeeper Cause-metics for several years now. They are an amazing company that not only offers super natural, fabulous cosmetics, but they bring awareness to womens' issues and donate to organizations that fight human rights issues for women living in servitude and poverty. To me that is amazing! The combination of beauty, natural ingredients, and womens' rights are a perfect trifecta ;)
I have tried several of their products including:
- nail polish
- nail polish remover
Peacekeeper nail polish is the most health-conscious nail polish I have found to date. The colors are fabulous and application is just as good as other 3-free nail polishes I've used from other companies. According to the website:
The Environmental Working Group's Cosmetics Safety Database (www.cosmeticsdatabase.org) has independently rated our Eco-Smooth Nail Paints on a scale of 0.0 (for nontoxics like water) and 10 (for products with the highest toxicity). Our polishes are ranked a 3 and are the highest rated paint based non-FD&C nail polish!
Peacekeeper nail polish remover is obviously acetone-free, but it's also very natural. It has a natural smell to it and it removes nail polish reasonably well. It may take a bit longer to remove it, but it does work. Given its natural ingredients I'm totally willing to work a little harder to remove my polish to avoid nasty chemicals! The only thing I did find it did not remove well was glitter nail polish. For some reason it just can't get all of the glitter off, but I've found that can be a problem with traditional nail polish remover as well.
Peacekeeper Lip Paint is the company's version of lipstick. From my experience it's been wonderfully pigmented and super creamy. The ingredients are amazingly natural, too. Here's what their site has to say:
PeaceKeeper’s Eco-Moist Lip Paints were nominated as finalists for “Best Lip Product of the Year” by Cosmetics Executive Woman (CEW). Rated only a 2 (low hazard) out of 10 (hazardous) by the Environmental Working Group's "Skin Deep" rating system.
I have to say, I love this company for so many reasons. They offer wonderful cosmetic alternatives that aren't just natural, but meaningful in the sense that they allow makeup lovers like you and I to support such important causes.
