Let me help you navigate through the recent flood of foundations 🕵️‍♀️ #ingredientcheck

* English text below!

Seitdem ich Makeup nur noch von Marken kaufe, welche keine Tierversuche durchführen, bin ich auf der Suche nach einer neuen Lieblings-Foundation. Wie praktisch, dass wir aktuell förmlich von einer Foundation-Welle überrollt werden. Insgesamt 12 (!) neue, cruelty-free-zertifizierte Foundations zählte ich in den letzten Monaten – ziemlich überwältigend.

Tatsächliches Interesse habe ich aber nur an den Produkten, die ohne austrocknenden Alkohol, reizende Extrakte, Duftstoffe und ätherische Öle auskommen. Aus diesem Grund habe ich unter Verwendung des Paula’s Choice Ingredient Dictrionaries deren Inci-Listen mal genauer unter die Lupe genommen.

Lesehinweis:
Die Inci-Listen habe ich von den Hersteller-Websites. Die aktuellste Auflistung der Inhaltsstoffe befindet sich aber immer direkt auf der Verpackung. In Rot sind Inhaltsstoffe aufgelistet die von PC als „POOR“ bewertet sind. In grün sind Inhaltsstoffe gelistet, welche von PC als „BEST“ bewertet sind.


Ever since I only buy makeup from brands that don’t perform animal testing, I’m on the hunt for a new holy grail foundation. So it is super convinient that we are currently being literally flooded by a wave of brandnew foundations. In total I counted 12 (!) new cruelty-free certified foundations in the last months – quite overwhelming.

However, I’m only genuinely interested in products that don’t contain drying alcohol, irritant extracts, fragrances or essential oils. For this reason I have used the Paula’s Choice Ingredient Dictrionary to take a closer look at their ingredient lists.

Reading note:
I found the ingredient lists stated below on the brands websites. But the most up-to-date list of ingredients can be found directly on the packaging. Ingredients that are rated as „POOR“ by PC are listed in red. Ingredients which are rated „BEST“ by PC are listed in green.

Fazit / Bottom line


Ich bin positiv überrascht, wie viele der Produkte komplett reiz-frei formuliert sind. Nächster Schritt für mich wird sein, Reviews der für mich interessanten Foundations zu lesen und mir vor allem Abfüllungen der Produkte zum Testen zu holen.
Lasst mich gerne auf Instagram wissen, ob ihr bereits eines der gezeigten Produkte auspobiert habt!

I am positively surprised to see how many of the products are formulated completely free of irritants. The next step for me will be to read reviews on the foundations that are of interest to me and to get my hands on some testers.
Let me know on Instagram if you have already tried one of the products!
