Best Non Toxic Concealer

best non toxic concealer

Since turning to natural skincare, my skin seems to have found a certain balance. As you can probably imagine, only the best non-toxic concealer comes anywhere near it.

A good concealer is such a versatile and fantastic product! From making up for sleepless nights to providing that perfect base for cosmetic expressions of your creativity on special occasions.

It goes without being noted and gives a wonderful glow to even the most flawless-looking skin. For good reason that Cindy Crawford mentioned a concealer as her number one pick to (hypothetically) bring to a desert island.

The right amount of coverage is an invaluable and forgiving trick to have up your sleeve – provided it doesn’t mess up the aforementioned skin balance with nasty ingredients, though.

Check out the hand-picked list of concealers with natural(-ish) ingredients below. Whatever your skin type or makeup style, you’ll find at least one and likely more great options.

And here’s a small confession: concealer is the one thing that comes in handy even when I’m slacking a little in the makeup department. 😉 Whether you’re rocking the no-makeup look by choice or simply having an off day, that dash of cover-up on an imperfection makes all the difference.

Why it makes sense to invest in the best quality concealer that fits your budget

A little bit of the right concealer goes a long way, which boils down to a quality concealer being a good longer-term investment. Speaking of quality – we all know what happens to cosmetics that turn out to be ‘meh’.

Where do unpopular beauty supplies go? They end up in that drawer, corner of a cabinet, or shelf… The infamous gathering place for stuff that hasn’t offended your skin enough to be tossed, or you’ve spent too much on them to rationalize the ditching.

It may be a cliche but as far as non-toxic concealers go, your skin simply deserves the best. And if you’re also a natural and organic skincare enthusiast, you’ll be loving this compilation of nature-based and cruelty-free concealers.

Shades, price, reviews & more

Maybe you’re thinking: There’s absolutely no way she’s used or tested all 17 of these products.

True!

Not even close to half. Being brutally honest here! I’m a real person. There’s only so much concealer a gal can slap on. On a scale from one to ‘plastered mummy’, my makeup style is on the more natural end, which doesn’t help when it comes to getting to the bottom of a product. But even though I don’t mind terribly being bare-skinned, having a dependable camouflage trick up your sleeve is invaluable.

Throughout the page, you’ll find notes describing my personal experience with the concealers I’ve tried. More of these scribbles will be added as I work my way through different ones.

In addition, there are some valuable tidbits of information that don’t require me to have used each and every single one of these products. Mapping those out will hopefully help you zone in on the right one, or a shortlist of contenders. Think:

  • The satisfaction of reviewers across the board
  • Range of colors
  • Where the best non-toxic concealers stand on a scale from affordable to luxurious
  • Which of them are vegan-friendly

14. Suzanne Organics Perfect Finish Concealer

What users are raving about in the reviews is its coverage, blend-ability, and natural (organic) ingredients. The most heard complaint is… that it is out of stock.

There are a few downsides to this concealer as well. For one, I’m always a tad suspicious of reviews on a brand’s very own website – especially if they’re all positive. (Such a cynic, I know…!) It just begs the question whether they are being moderated. Reviews with retailers that sell multiple brands seem more honest. Then, ethylhexylglycerin is a preservative that purists may not be too happy about and as far as the shades go, get ready to be disappointed though – there are only two choices.

  • light-medium
  • medium-dark

Ingredients: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax*, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Flower Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Oil*, Ocimum Basilicum (Sweet Basil) Oil*, Tocopherol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenethyl Alcohol.

The non-toxic concealers BLACKLIST

There are certain cosmetic brands that aim to use more natural ingredients compared to main-stream beauty brands. Unfortunately, they fail to take a stance against animal testing so I can not recommend them. While the following brands make it look as though they’re part of the ethical community, they also choose to sell in China. China requires cosmetic animal testing for all products that cross the border – natural ingredients or not. As such, these brands partake in funding/outsourcing these cruel practices.

  • Jurlique
  • Love Beauty Planet
  • l’Occitane
  • Origins
  • Yves Rocher

While their concealers may be free of (or low in) toxic ingredients, they sadly are not cruelty-free.

Where to shop for the best non toxic concealer?

Many of the links included here are to LoveLula. One of the things that’s great about this online store is that they ship worldwide.
