Eco-Friendly: PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics

Next time you want to do some good, you don't necessarily have to volunteer at a soup kitchen. That's the brilliance of PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics: a beauty line that helps those less fortunate. The company is the first of it's kind to donate ALL of its profits to women's health and human rights advocacy groups. PeaceKeeper also sources raw ingredients from third world farmers and gives micro-credit loans to the families of those farmers. Now if that isn't beautiful, I don't what is. The program is called Beauty For Humanity-Yummy for Me & Yummy For The World! Now That's Beautiful. These "dual-purpose" products bring awareness to the injustices suffered by so many around the world. Their mission, which I love, is to encourage women to more fully recognize the level of abuse and inequality suffered around the globe and to take an active role in finding solutions simply by choosing a beauty product. They work on bringing awareness to issues such as rape, female genital mutilation, "honor killings" and slave labor.

Here's the best part, the products are absolutely amazing, eco-friendly, and never tested on animals.

Their glosses are a regular part of my daily beauty regimen and their Eco-Moist Lip Paint (shown above in shade Paint Me Content) has become a "can't live without" product that frequents my makeup bag so often that my other lipsticks are becoming very jealous.  Paint Me Content goes on smooth and compliments my skin tone. This rich, dusty, rose pink shade was made for me. The velvety color also protects my lips with ultra-moisturizing Shea Butter, Candelila Wax, and Grapeseed Oil. The lipstick was even a finalist for "Best Lip Product of the Year" by Cosmetic Executive Women and comes in 12 shades. This is the kind of tube you'll always want on and at $12.00 you're shelling out minimum amounts of cash for a high quality lipstick that helps so many others.  Shades range from a dark creamy burgundy (Paint Me Empowered) to a light copper with gold shimmer (Paint Me Accepting) and everything between.

Also try their delicious glosses! PeaceKeeper's YUM Balms are fruity and fabulous! The brand has found the solution for curbing hunger pains AND making lips feel silky! These organic juicy glosses are made from food-grade ingredients that could technically be spread on bread and butter for breakfast! Considering most of your lip glosses are inadvertently eaten or swallowed during the course of the day, it's great to know these balms use ingredients people are actually meant to swallow! The glosses come in yummy flavors such as Citrus, Strawberry, Raspberry, and Blueberry. Ingredients include gluten-free Vitamin E, red beet, cabbage juice, goji berry, and pomegranate. The ingredients really are good enough to eat!

All in all, PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics is the beautiful way to look good and make a difference for someone who truly needs your help. I'm sold!
