With everyone going ‘au naturel’ these days, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to new products hitting our shelves. From skincare to haircare, home care and even diet, more and more Australians are making the switch to organic products.
Recently, we gave you the lowdown on some of the best Australian organic skincare brands covering several retailers that offered toxic-free products. But, our work here isn’t complete without giving you some trusted companies that stock makeup containing only natural ingredients.
Founded by Kailah Shannon, self-titled as the Mama Going Natural, MG Naturals is an organic cosmetic brand 100% free of titanium dioxide.
“All of our products are formulated using our ‘no nasties policy,’” says Kailah. “Women from across the globe love our products because they promote skin health and healing and don’t contain any skin damaging free radicals.”
MG Naturals was established following the birth of Kailah’s daughter that sent her on a journey to clean out all toxic chemicals and additives. From this, their Organic Sunscreen product was developed and today, they stock various foundations, BB creams, bronzers, blushes and lip glosses.

Kailiah adds, “Most of our ingredients are 100% edible and yummy!”
