Your time is precious and so is your counterspace. You have things to do and people to see and you need a morning routine that is fuss-free and fool-proof. Want to know how we achieve Flawless Coverage in Three Easy Steps using our nontoxic, all-natural cosmetics?

W3LL PEOPLE's plant-based, non-toxic Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer

Prime, Perfect and Protect – Your skin is going to love the multi-tasking benefits of our Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer. Simply blend 2-3 drops of our Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer into skin to help even your skin tone, prime the skin for foundation, and add a layer of SPF 30 environmental protection. Bio Tint uses organic coconut oil, ginseng and algae to nourish skin and broccoli seed oil to smooth and prime your skin.

W3LL PEOPLE'S non-toxic, plant-based Bio Correct Multi-Action Concealer

Cover, Conceal and Correct – Our Bio-Correct Multi-Action Concealer is your secret weapon! Bio Correct provides instant and long-lasting coverage for existing blemishes, dark circles or hyper-pigmentation, while also depuffing, brightening and improving skin with a robust cocktail of organic algae, coffee, pomegranate and anti-aging peptides! Tap the whipped mousse formula into under eyes, onto sunspot and over any redness or discoloration for coverage that both covers and works to correct.  
W3LL PEOPLE'S non-toxic and plant-based Bio Brightener Invisible Powder

Buff, Beautify and Brighten – Finish by quickly buffing a light layer of our Bio Brightener Invisible Powder over your entire face using small, circular motions and a Kabuki Brush. The crushed freshwater pearl powder in our Bio Brightener Invisible Powder melts naturally into skin, creating a soft-focus finish that minimizes pores and softens fine lines while also helping create a naturally luminous glow.

W3LL PEOPLE's 7-in-1, plant-based, vegan, non-toxic Bio Booster Facial Serum

Hydrate, Heal and Highlight –  Want to work some plant-based skincare into this get-up and glow morning routine? Simply press 2-3 drops of our Bio Booster Facial Serum into skin either before or after finishing the above steps. Applying it first will help wake skin up, prime it and allow the serum to combine with the Bio Tint for a semi-sheer serum foundation. Pressing the oil into skin as a final step will help add a beautiful glow and finish to the overall look. Bio Booster has a powerful 7-in-1 botanical formula that is loaded with good-for-you ingredients that your skin will love, such as turmeric, sea buckthorn, rose hip, pomegranate, algae, jojoba, macadamia oil, olive oil, broccoli and carrot seed oils and more! 

These three products are all you need to achieve a smooth, glowing complexion in minutes, while simultaneously providing your skin with nourishing hydration and SPF 30 protection that will shield your skin from environmental stressors throughout the day.

DISCOVER THE LATEST IN CHEMICAL FREE SPF BY W3LL PEOPLE

Have Safe Sun: The latest in chemical free SPF by W3LL PEOPLE

Are you ready to get out there and enjoy the sun without the fear of sun damage, or sunburn? Time for you to get acquainted with our SPF Dream Team! The four products above were created fo yo glow, but have the added benefit of protecting you from environmental damage. Here’s why this good-for-you collection will quickly become your trusted regimen for sun protection and repair!

LAYER UP, BUTTERCUP

Did you know conventional sunscreens can contain harmful ingredients such as Avobenzone and Oxybenzone? Both of these seriously toxic ingredients have been linked to photoallergic reactions, endocrine disruption and bioaccumulation. Why battle one nasty with another nasty? No bueno. That’s why our products use the unbeatable defense power of zinc to provide a physical barrier between you and the sun.

We recommend applying our Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer SPF 30 every morning. This award winning product protects your skin with SPF 30 broad spectrum protection thanks to the power of pure zinc and a host of antioxidant rich organic botanicals that hydrate, nourish and soothe.

If you want to double down on protection, add another dose of SPF by lightly buffing on a layer of our Altruist Foundation Powder SPF 15 over Bio Tint Multi-action Moisturizer. Give extra attention to areas that get targeted by the sun, such as the top of your forehead and your nose. It may also be used by itself for a solid SPF 15 which is typically plenty for work days when mainly indoors.

And don’t forget about your precious lips! They are so susceptible to sunburn and are often forgotten. Thankfully our clear Nudist Lip Butter 0 is the perfect way to look gorgeous and nourish your lips with organic rosehip oil while also shielding them from the sun with zinc’s natural, safe environmental protection.

TOUCH UP AND GO, GIRL

How about sun protection that not only shields you from environmental damage but also looks great!? Instead of reapplying a cream sunscreen to your face, which can wreak havoc on your makeup application, leaving skin oily and pores clogged, simply buff another layer of our Altruist Foundation Powder SPF 15 onto skin for a quick-touch up that will reinforce the SPF benefits! Pro tip: try putting Altruist Foundation Powder into your favorite refillable brush for SPF protection on the go!

REVERSE AND REPAIR

Protecting your skin from environmental damage doesn’t end when you leave the beach. Antioxidants are the secret to repairing damage that has already been done, and helping to prevent future sun damage.

Both of these products you’re wearing during the day are working triple duty. Bio Tint Multi-action Moisturizer SPF 30 and Altruist Foundation Powder SPF 15 both are chock full of anti-oxidant rich, plant-based ingredients to improve your skin quality for a flawless and radiant complexion, while defending against environmental damage.

Bio Tint is loaded with organic broccoli seed oil, rosehip oil, turmeric and bio -peptides that rejuvenate skin and boost collagen. Altruist soothes and nourishes skin with pearl powder, organic green tea, and organic aloe.

Feel like your skin could use an extra dose of antioxidant love? Meet our Bio Booster Facial Serum, which touts a 7-in-1 formula powered by organic botanicals that help repair and soothe your skin after a day in the sun! Organic Rose Hip and Pomegranate rejuvenate your skin while our powerful algae complex brightens and corrects. A long list of powerful plant-based ingredients, such as Sea Buckthorn, Broccoli Seed Oil, Jojoba and Red Raspberry further work to improve your skin’s appearance and combat breakouts. Press 2-3 drops into skin at the end of the day, remembering to treat your lips, neck and chest as well!

We know that our SPF Dream Team will have you ready for anything that summer sends your way! Share your sun-filled adventures with us on Instagram using @W3LLPEOPLE and #BEW3LL!

What we put on our body goes into our body. For W3LL PEOPLE the choice is clear: if ingredients represent potentially harmful side effects, we don’t use them.

Bottom-line, we don’t use natural ingredients just because it’s the right thing to do, but because they’re better.

5 Simple Steps to Reading Ingredient Labels That Will Help You Detox Your Beauty For Good

w3ll-people-ingredients-to-avoid-cheat-sheet-blog

5 Tips for Understanding Ingredient Labels + FREE Cheat Sheet Download

It’s no secret that there are products on the market that contain nasty ingredients known to cause everything from allergic reactions and skin sensitivities, to larger- more long-term problems such as hormone disruption and toxicity. Many of these toxic additives are even found to contribute to the development of cancer and other harmful diseases.

When asked why they are still using products that we know can be harmful, most people point their finger at the slack of knowledge about ingredients, and not knowing what to look for as a consumer to ensure that your products are safe and healthy.

It doesn’t have to be overwhelming, and you don’t have to be fooled anymore! Our team of experts have compiled 5 SIMPLE TIPS that will make it easy for you to stroll into the beauty aisle and confidently determine which products are safe, and which ones aren’t deserving of a spot in your bathroom cupboard:

infographic_sprites_sprite1
1. Don’t judge a product by its cover.
Greenwashing is a real thing and many brands hide behind non-certified catch phrases like “organic” and “natural”. Brands like to put these words right on the front of the packaging to help you make a decision. And although this may be helpful to you as a consumer, you also need to be somewhat skeptical. Especially if it is only the words “organic” or “natural”. As our friend and green guru Paige Padgett notes in her book, The Green Beauty Rules, these words are not enough. Look for additional detail, such as cruelty-free, free of synthetics, or free of petrochemicals, and no matter what always turn the box over and look at the ingredient label to verify the quality of ingredients for yourself. Reputable brands are typically advocates for ingredient transparency. W3LL PEOPLE proves our dedication to this cause through the pioneering work we do with the Environmental Working Group, and the fact that we strive to have products that are EWG verified and USDA Certified Organic.

2. From the top to the bottom, my friend!
Ingredients are listed in order of concentration: from highest concentration to lowest concentration. So, if a product claims to be “coconut oil based”, coconut oil should be the first thing on its ingredient label. This also means that if you’re short on time, you can focus your efforts by researching and clearing the first 3-5 ingredients on a label, which will help verify that the majority of the formula is made with safe ingredients.

infographic_sprites_sprite3

3. Memorize 10 words (or store this list in your phone).
You can’t always run products through an app (although we love Think Dirty) or have uninterrupted access to an online database (we suggest EWG’s Skin Deep), and sometimes small brands or new products aren’t even listed. When that happens you’ll need to determine whether a product is safe just like the old timers did: by using your memory! Fortunately, memorizing just 10 words can help you become pretty comfortable deciphering ingredients in cosmetics:

1. Coal tar
2. Diethanolamine (DEA)
3. Formaldehyde
4. Parabens
5. Phenylenediamine (PPD)
6. Phthalates
7. Sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulphate
8. Toluene
9. Fragrance
10. Triethanolamine

We’ve put together a Cheat Sheet that you can store in your phone when you’re in a pinch! Click below to grab it!

If you see any of those words on the ingredient label, it is probably a product you want to avoid.

4. Beware of fragrance!
There’s an FDA loophole that allows companies to conceal a long list of chemicals, often ones containing phthalates, as “fragrance”. Fragrance, especially synthetic fragrance, is something that is good to avoid due to sensitivities, but is especially worth avoiding if a brand isn’t disclosing what, exactly, makes up the “fragrance” they list on their ingredient label. Go for brands that are fragrance free, synthetic fragrance free, or use essential oils and list what oils are in each product.

infographic_sprites_sprite5

5. Big words aren’t always bad.
Many brands follow the INCI labeling standard, which requires that you list ingredients using their scientific name. This helps a lot with consistency across the industry, but can also make for a lot of long, hard to pronounce words that can scare consumers. A lot of brands (including us!) will use both the scientific name and the common name, just to help out the consumer. For example, you’ll see Carthamus Tinctorius listed as an ingredient in some of our products. Carthamus Tinctorius is safflower seed oil, which we put in parenthesis. If the brand doesn’t translate it for you, a quick google search will help you out. That said, the use of INCI can also make it easier for brands to sneak toxic ingredients into their products — because their long, indecipherable names just blend right in! In this case, rely on our list of 10 Ingredient to Avoid that you memorized in Step 3!

Determining which products are safe and which ones are toxic doesn’t need to be time consuming or overwhelming. Arm yourself with these 5 SIMPLE TIPS and you’ll be a label reading queen in no time!
