Not that it's something gastronomically recommended, but here's a look at eco-friendly beauty products that are so natural you could actually eat them.
The Organic Pharmacy
UK-based The Organic Pharmacy recently launched a new line, Glamour Food, consisting of skincare essentials (hand lotion, body lotion, facial moisturizer, cleanser), all of which are formulated with natural food-grade ingredients.
The Body Deli
"Handcrafted by cosmetic chefs," all of The Body Deli's products are raw and organic and made with a high concentration of superfoods.
Dairyface's preservative-free face and body products are so natural, they must be stored in a fridge.
Shea Terra Organics
A natural skincare line, all of Shea Terra Organics' products are made using unique, indigenous ingredients from Africa. Many of its shea butter-based chocolate products feel, smell and look just like fudge.
Bite Beauty is a natural lip care company that makes all of its products — glosses, tints, lipsticks, pencils, shines, balms, butters, primers, and more — without the use of synthetics, polybutenes and petroleum byproducts (a rarity for lip care), and everything is made exclusively with food-grade ingredients.
