Here’s the caveat: Just as with cupcakes, the word vegan doesn’t necessarily put you in the clear when it comes to your health.
When I checked out some of the ingredients, sure there were natural ones like peppermint and hemp oil, but there were also some synthetic ingredients like FD&C Yellow #5 (and reds and blues too).
Definitely don’t ingest any food with these colors because that would mean it’s highly processed and if you do use them on your skin, do so in extreme moderation, if at all (especially on your lips since we end up eating a lot of it).
I love the product so I’m hoping OCC will look into how it colors its cosmetics to deliver a truly pure product in the future.
The $75 make-up application comes with $50 worth of product. Here’s what I took home:
