Plant Makeup
Plant Makeup makes their lovely handmade, small-batch products using only "Good4You" ingredients—either certified organic, locally grown, or foraged from non-polluted areas—and takes care to return plant material back to the earth after it has been removed, used, or infused. Many of their products are packaged in compostable tubes, and the use of glass is prominent over plastic. They even go as far as biking each package to the post office, rather than driving, to make sure they are as eco-friendly as possible.

Plant Makeup, Pink Rose Shimmer Balm, $14, available at Plant Makeup.
