Non-Toxic Cosmetics: Natural isn’t always good, and synthetic isn’t always bad

At CD Beauty NYC, we have over 20 years of experience in the natural cosmetics industry.  Our founder, Christopher Drummond had a natural/organic/vegan makeup line named Christopher Drummond Beauty for seven years, and he learned a lot about cosmetic ingredients.

With the relaunch of his popular makeup line, CDBeauty, you will see that there are some things that are added, and some things that are missing.  For one, we have maintained our promise to give our clients healthy, clean, non-toxic, vegan cosmetics.  However, this does not mean the cosmetics we offer are 100% natural.  Please continue to read why we have chosen to use both natural and synthetically derived ingredients in our makeup.

"There are many synthetic ingredients that are safer, more effective, and have a great track record for being non-toxic and safe for humans...."

In his many years developing cosmetics, Christopher discovered that many “synthetic” ingredients are actually just as safe, if not more safe, than “organic” and “natural” ingredients.  True, there are certain man-made ingredients that will NEVER be put into our products—ingredients such as parabens, sulfates, alcohol, known allergens, artificial colors and fragrance, to name a few.  If there is an ingredient that is known to be harmful, we will not use it.

We also made a vow to be totally transparent.  This means we do not hide any information about our products, how they are made and where they are made.  We let you decide if you want to use the products, by giving you full disclosure concerning every ingredient we use. 

Some of our cosmetics (like our Superfruit Brow Serum) are 100% pure and organic. However, some do have synthetically derived ingredients.  If our ingredients have synthetics in them, you will know, because we list all ingredients on the product pages.  We also supply you with links to resources such as SkinCharisma, The Environmental Working Group, The EU Skin Rating System, and many others.  We want our clients to be as educated as possible about our cosmetics, and everyone else!

ABOUT SUPERFRUIT BROW SERUM

We are proud to say we are the only cold-pressed superfruit brow serum on the market. Power packed with over 12 cold-pressed fruit oils, seeds, fruit extracts, algae, peptides and stem cells, we have the best brow conditioning and growth serum on the market. 100% organic, cold-pressed, no artificial ingredients, no harsh chemicals.

Here at CD BEAUTY NYC, we have over 20 years of advanced skincare experience, and we have found out something about eyebrows: you need to treat your brows different than the skin on your face. They need more than just hydrating oils. That is why we created our unique SUPERFRUIT SERUM.

One bottle of our super-antioxidant and omega-rich oil blend is equivalent to the seeds of 4 pounds of grapes, raspberries, cranberries plus omega fatty acids. No joke! We counted!
