it is hard to find cosmetics that are both cruelty free and organic (and even eco-conscious like vapour), and whose products perform just as well as their mainstream counterparts. sometimes, i have to do concessions when i can't find something cruelty free/organic/eco conscious that i really need to perform well for my daily needs, like brow pencils. i really love anastasia's brow wiz, but they're neither organic nor cruelty free, expensive too. i've found a product from a cruelty free company that performs almost just as well but even better--it's cheaper and vegan! of course, it's not organic, but at least one of the three! vegan and gluten-free products are not in my priorities, they're just bonuses if they happen to be.

i take my time these days to do research to find the products that meet as much of those criteria as possible, even if it means buying stuff online instead of just going to the drugstore or department store.

Everything is made up of chemicals. You are breathing chemicals right now. I bet you even drank dihydrogen monoxide sometime today.

for sure you know it's the harmful ones, and the levels contained. unless you really ADVOCATE for the use of products that contain more of the harmful chemicals for whatever reason

So what mascara do you recommend that doesn't contain "harmful chemicals", since this thread is about recommendations and not the evils of chemicals.

there are a slew of companies that offer organic and/or cruelty free mascara. pacifica, jane iredale, ILIA, juice beauty, 100% pure, mineral fusion are some that i know of. i've only tried mineral fusion at this point, but like i've explained earlier in this thread, i've only used it maybe a couple of times in the last two years (haven't really worn mascara in the past year), so i can't really gauge its performance. i haven't used mainstream mascaras at all in the last few years either, so it's hard to compare.

You might it advantageous to find a recipe for making your own mascara. You should change your mascara tube every three to six months due to bacterial growth...so if it's been over a year, I'd toss the tube. Or try the E. L. F. cruelty free brand. It's very inexpensive, but is supposed to be a good brand.

i didn't say i've kept using it, did i? the only thing i said was i only used the mascara a few times in the past year.

unfortunately, as cheap and mainstream ELF is, it's not in the leaping bunny list.

For most people, the leaping bunny list isn't the most important thing when choosing products. E.L.F. is cruelty free, they do not test on animals. No, they are not "leaping bunny", but that doesn't automatically mean they are a bad company. Maybe they don't want to jump through all the hoops when they are comfortable with who they are as a company already.

It seems like you don't really wear mascara, and a majority of companies are not going to meet your standards for you to be able to recommend one. I already recommended a mascara that was on your leaping bunny list, but of course it then doesn't meet other standards of whatever. So now it just seems like you are trying to hijack the thread to promote your own agenda.

Of course, we're all promoting an agenda on our own. Whether it's an agendum of economy/cheapness, convenience (like being able to go to a drugstore/department store), the prestige of getting a high end brand, or finding something organic/leaping bunny cruelty free/eco conscious, we all have our philosophies with such things.
