Max Green Alchemy, a vegan makeup and hair product company, is a true gem to the vegan community. Their approach to beauty is simple – they should “respect our internal and external environments without sacrificing effectiveness or lowering expectations”. The company doesn’t look at their products as a tool for your beauty regimen, they look at their products as nourishing food for your hair and skin. To that end, they make sure that the ingredients that they use are ingredients that you would *want* going into your body.
All of the ingredients used in their products are plant-based, and they use products that are organic and GMO-free as much as possible. All of their products are Paraben-free, Petrochemical-free (think mineral oil) and sulfate free. They definitely do not test on animals, and use no animal ingredients such as lanolin. Their packaging uses recyclable material, and they strive to stay green in all aspects of their company, even down to reusing shipping materials.
What the website has to say about the importance of using products that are 100% pure, organic material is fascinating. They point out that, much like transdermal patches are used for substances such as nicotine, products that are put on the skin have a direct line into the blood stream. With the skin being the largest organ of the human body, anything we put on our skin is absorbed directly through it. Therefore, the importance of putting products on our skin that are good for us as a whole, is vital to our overall health and well being. To ensure that their firm commitment to treating beauty products as if they were food, they offer an entire line of hair products that are gluten free, for those who have a sensitivity to gluten.
Max Green Alchemy offers a wide array of products for the hair, skin and lips. Their skin line offers a bounty of creams, cleansers, oils and balms that are packed full of moisturizers and restorative ingredients that aid in the soothing of a many skin problems, such as eczema, psoriasis and general dermatitis. Their “Scalp Rescue” line of hair care offers gentle, yet effective, cleansing and conditioning products that nourish the hair and bring health to the scalp.
