Beauty Shop

Welcome to My Beauty Shop of safer skin care and cosmetics!

Did you know that the U.S. law that governs the $60 billion cosmetics industry was passed in 1938 and does not provide the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with the power to ask cosmetic companies for safety data or issue recalls of cosmetics found to be unsafe. And, in the U.S., there are only 11 ingredients which are restricted or banned from cosmetics. Yea…..pretty crazy!

I’ve been on my “safer beauty care” journey for about 10 years now, ever since my then Ayurvedic practitioner gave me my first “Never List”! It’s been a joy to watch so many great companies rise up and join the cause! You can check out some of our current favorite companies at the bottom of this page.

Here are Ben & my favorite “safer” skincare and cosmetics picks for WINTER 2016. In the captions we talk about why we love them, so give them a read. Want to learn more or buy? Simply click on the photo. We are not sponsored for any of the products below, we truly love and use all of them. Anything we make from affiliate sales goes to keeping the lights on here at The Urban Poser, and it keeps the good Paleo treats coming! 

ALSO, check out our “Beauty Swaps” page. Where we swap out conventional, department store brands with other brands that fit our vibrant lifestyle choices, both in similar price and performance quality!
