Consider your health when looking your best: These 15 mighty independent natural cosmetic stores can help

Handmade soap and cosmetics are plentiful at Distinct Bath and Body.

Whether it's just a normal workday or a special lunch out with your spouse or friends, looking your best matters. It matters so much, in fact, that the average woman spends about $15,000 on makeup in her lifetime. 

But while makeups claim to make women look younger, more beautiful and healthy, mainstream cosmetics may be doing just the opposite, thanks to the long list of chemicals and toxins that many products contain. 

Since our skin is porous, it absorbs much of what we put on it. Finding products that are safe and non-toxic is essential. 

If you're ready to do a makeup and cosmetics haul, here are 15 mighty independent shops ready to help.
