At the Clean Beauty Compendium, we hold high standards for our products. We work hard to keep product’s ingredients up to date and accurate.

In order to be included in the Clean Beauty Compendium, a brand’s product must rate a 3 or lower on EWG, CosDNA, and/or Huahae.

Sometimes makeup needs to be waterproof and/or go the extra mile for one reason or another; be it work – i.e. modeling, acting – OR personal preference.

Through copious research, we have found products that stand up to the endurance test while being as safe as possible. 3 is on the lowest end of moderate concern, and products with this rating typically do not contain ingredients such as synthetic fragrances, phthalates, or parabens.

Cruelty-free products are not a priority for all makeup/skin/haircare lovers. In an effort to have the most comprehensive directory, we have included these brands. If this is a priority for you, we have created a cruelty-free brands list.

At the Clean Beauty Compendium want everyone to know which products are clean and safe to use no matter what standards they hold for their skincare, makeup, or haircare. We would not be fulfilling our mission if we did not include EVERY clean product available.

NO! Absolutely not! If you have not yet read our disclaimer, it goes something like this:
Any brand included did not pay/incentivize us to have their products listed. All opinions/reviews of these products are 100% that of the Clean Beauty Compendium, as we DO NOT ACCEPT ANY monetary compensation or affiliated incentives to post a certain rating or opinion on products listed in the Clean Beauty Compendium.

A certain brand or product may not be listed for several reasons:

  1. We have not gotten around to adding it, or are not yet aware of the brand’s/product’s existence.
  2. The brand does not contain any products rated a 3 or lower.


Don’t be afraid to ask!
