Now, this isn't to say that you need to be super skeptical simply because only a handful of companies own 99% off the beauty products you see on shelves. But always read the labels and just be knowledgeable about where your products come from. Kiss and Makeup did a similar list in August. Ours is by no means complete, but there are a few additions, like Tom's of Maine, Burt's Bees and Ojon, we're sure come as a bit of a suprise.
