I've been interested in cleaner toxic free makeup and beauty products recently and one of my favorite places to shop is Credo Beauty. Whenever I get the chance I like to visit the Los Angeles location to browse toxic free options. If you are following me on my Instagram you know I do some damage whenever I visit. Here are a few products I have had my eyes on and why I love Credo Beauty. 


Credo Beauty is Latin for "I Believe" 

Their mission statement is: 

Our mission is to change the way people think about ingredients and products they put on their bodies. We believe giving you a beautiful, elegant, and welcoming clean beauty shopping destination, filled with amazing products and honest experts, is a pretty good start.


My favorite thing about Credo Beauty is the transparency between brand and customers. Everything carried by Credo Beauty is held to a safe toxic free standard however it is a personal preference of what you decide to use or not use. Credo carries products that may still contain a few ingredients you'd like to avoid for example: dimethicone. Dimethicone is usually found in foundations, moisturizers, and sunblock. You can read more about dimethicone HERE. It's a pretty hard ingredient to avoid and completely up to you if you want to or not like all ingredients. I say do what you can. 

Whenever I speak with the staff at Credo, they are always 100 percent honest and transparent. There is never a feeling of being sold or pushed. They understand that it can be challenging to transition to cleaner options and will take the time to answer any questions you may have and help you decide where to start. The website also has a great section next to each product giving you tips on what the clean product replaces some popular conventional ones.

    Are there clean products that are available in Belgium?? 🙂 🙂 I want to start with clean make up, but I have no idea where to start 🙂

      I am sure there are. You may have to do a little more research or order online. I know Ecco Bella is available worldwide and there are a few international sites that carry W3ll people and RMS beauty 🙂
