Lipstick and Nail Polish with a Peacekeeping CauseWritten by Linda Kelly
Must we all "suffer for beauty" when there is an environmentally- and socially-conscious cosmetics company at our fingertips? When looking for the best in nail and lip polish, balms and polish remover, consider both the environmental and social impact of these products. PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics offers an extensive line of upscale cosmetics, through various retail stores and online, that meet the PeaceKeeper’s pledge to offer only products made with slavery-free labor, fair wages for their employees, no animal testing, and without harmful and carcinogenic ingredients. PeaceKeeper founder, Jody R. Weiss, was inspired to create her company as a way to address the need for a women-oriented company that focused on the values of real love, fairness and freedom for all. One night she dreamed about a PeaceKeeper movement. She saw in this dream that women around the world wanted the same thing…and the words which now appear on the sides of the PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics lipstick carton appeared in her dream: freedom, joy, wisdom, voice, and esteem, in every major language of the world. Jody also chose to focus on developing cosmetics that were pure and clean, containing no toxic ingredients or involving any animal testing. “At first, chemists told me they could show me what real clean cosmetics look like, and they still had acetone, parabens, etc…, so I had to roll up my sleeves and learn the truth about safe cosmetics myself. A few chemists refused to make our products without their harmful ingredients, but now we are working with extraordinary chemists and manufacturers who understand exactly what we are trying to do. We are now ranked as one of the safest cosmetics lines in America. PeaceKeeper prides itself on its slogan "No Nasty Anything!" and is dedicated to creating cosmetics using non-toxic ingredients that will keep your body safe and healthy. Our products use no toluene, formaldehyde, acetone, parabens, etc., 100% natural and 75% or more organic, non-toxic ingredients that are friendly to your body. Our Eco-Sensual Lip Balm is 100% vegan and 73% organic, and our latest line of YUM Glazes has been certified ‘food-grade’ by the USDA—so eco-friendly you can spread them on your toast for breakfast! We also have many vegan-friendly products,” says Jody. Since 2009, PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics has been supporting Carbonfund.org's projects by purchasing carbon credits as part of their policy of practicing business in a way that is both socially and environmentally conscious. PeaceKeeper is also an All-Benefit Company, one of many companies that give all of their distributable profits to charity after taxes, debt repayment, financing costs and reasonable working capital reserves. Now That’s Beautiful!TM PeaceKeeper is not simply a project created by a few women and the men who love them. For PeaceKeeper to work, many women (and the men who love them) must be involved. Just by buying a few products, you can become a PeaceKeeper too! So, shop online, or find a store near you, for their natural nail and lip polish, with free shipping for orders over $25, as part of the Million Kisses Campaign in the “Kiss Museum” on their website.
