Any of you ladies like to have a light-coverage moisturizing foundation or like to use BB cream?


Hereโ€™s some of the common ingredients in BB creams:


X ๐๐ซ๐—ผ๐ฉ๐ฒ๐ฅ๐ž๐ง๐ž ๐†๐ฅ๐ฒ๐œ๐—ผ๐ฅ

Known skin irritant and is frequently associated with contact dermatitis


X ๐๐—ผ๐ฅ๐ฒ๐ฌ๐—ผ๐ซ๐›๐š๐ญ๐ž 80/20 & ๐๐„๐†๐ฌ

Ethoxylated ingredients which may be contaminated with 1, 4 dioxane, a known human carcinogen even in small amounts


X ๐…๐ซ๐š๐ ๐ซ๐š๐ง๐œ๐ž

A list of potential ingredients that is 3,164 chemicals long. Every 1 in 20 of those ingredients on this list are a โ€œhighโ€ hazard to humans and 1 in 6 โ€œmoderateโ€ hazard. Side effects ranging from hormone and endocrine disruption, skin irritations, respiratory issues, fertility issues and cancer.


X ๐๐ก๐ž๐ง๐—ผ๐ฑ๐ฒ๐ž๐ญ๐ก๐š๐ง๐—ผ๐ฅ

A common ingredient used as a โ€œnaturalโ€ preservative that can cause reproductive damage if absorbed through the skin as well as nervous system depression, kidney damage, skin irritation, headaches, dizziness, nausea and drowsiness.


X ๐‰๐š๐ฉ๐š๐ง๐ž๐ฌ๐ž ๐‡๐—ผ๐ง๐ž๐ฒ๐ฌ๐ฎ๐œ๐ค๐ฅ๐ž ๐„๐ฑ๐ญ๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ญ

Sounds harmless, but its chemical makeup almost replicates that of parabens which have estrogen-mimicking properties and is linked to breast cancer.


Hereโ€™s a safe swap for you:


1 pump Crunchiโ€™s Primer mixed with 1 pump of their foundation.


The amazing things about these two products:

  • Toxin-free (would ๐‘›๐‘’๐‘ฃ๐‘’๐‘Ÿ use the ingredients above!)

  • Leaping-bunny certified

  • Vegan

  • Non-gmo

  • Made in the USA

  • High performing

  • Soooo nourishing

Tremella Fuciformis mushroom extract in the primer to help protect skin from environmental stressors and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and many many more anti-inflammatory and pH-balancing ingredients.


Vitamins C & E in the foundation that will brighten your skin and provide antioxidant-rich coverage while soothing Aloe Leaf provides moisture, and reishi mushroom extract reduces wrinkles and fine lines for an ageless appearance.


I know there are some BB creams out there that have SPF as well, which is great since you never want to leave your house without it. But the common active ingredients that I was seeing in these products to give you that protection are:


X Octinoxate

X Octisalate


Which can create harmful byproducts that enter our bloodstream in as little as one day, and have been shown to be endocrine disrupters and harmful to coral reefs.


A great alternative is Crunchiโ€™s Sunlight, which gives you the SPF protection youโ€™re needing using non-nano zinc oxide and is reef safe AND toxin-free.
