Shaklee Lipstick

The average woman can ingest up to 6 pounds of lipstick in her lifetime. Think about it – you will accidentally eat and digest lip products that equal the weight of a 1/2 gallon of milk at some point in your lifetime. Since we all know that a tube of lipstick doesn’t weigh that much, that’s a lot of lip product!
So it makes sense that you want something as healthy and natural as can be. Shaklee Lipstick is just one of those products.
Shaklee’s Minerelle’s Lipstick is made with a surprisingly wholesome blend of natural based ingredients for being such a great lipstick with incredible color and long lasting staying power.
Pink SapphireAmong the major ingredients in Shaklee lipstick is castor seed oil, jojoba seed oil, sunflower seed oil, shea butter and beeswax.  Although Shaklee lipstick has not been tested by the Environmental Working Group or listed in its Cosmetic Safety Database, looking up the individual ingredients of Shaklee’s lipstick inthe Cosmetic Safety Database shows that they all have very little to no toxicity.  With most scores ranging from 0-2 on a scale of 10 (with 10 being the worst), Shaklee’s lipstick ingredients are among the healthiest that you will find.
For such a healthier lipstick, you’d be surprised at how well Shaklee lipstick performs.  It goes on smooth and lightweight, not sticky; there’s no weird taste or smell; it lasts for a long time; and the colors are nice.
CinnamauveI tried out Cinnamauve (shown to the left),  a medium universal shade that’s a little rosy but not too pink.  Though it looks like it should just work for cool tone skin colors, it also looks great on warm tones, too.
Worried about ordering online since Shaklee is not available in stores, or are you worried about a Shaklee representative constantly harassing you to buy products?  Don’t be. While you can order face to face with a Shaklee distributor, it’s also just as easy to order online. And with Shaklee’s 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, if you don’t love it, you can return it with no problems.

Why It’s Better For Your Health: If you’re going to be ingesting lipstick through the normal course of eating, drinking, chewing on your lips, etc., then you better make sure that it’s as healthy as can be.  Shaklee’s lipstick ingredients are low in toxicity and most are natural and plant based.
Shaklee lipsticks are paraben free, meaning no harmful carcinogens are touching your lips.

Why It’s Better For the Earth:  Shaklee’s lipstick ingredients are made from renewable plant based ingredients, such as jojoba and castor seeds, instead of non-renewable products such as petrolatum and mineral oil which comes from petroleum.

Buying from Shaklee means supporting a company that has been striving towards more natural, eco-friendly products since 1956.

Shaklee is the first company in the world to obtain Climate Neutral certification and totally offset its carbon dioxide emissions, resulting in a net zero impact on the environment. For more information on Shaklee’s green initiatives
