Both men and women have used cosmetics for centuries upon centuries. It was probably the ancient Sumerians who were the first to use cosmetics to decorate their eyes and lips, around 5,000 years ago. In fact, ancient civilizations like the Sumerians and Egyptians used everything from gemstones to fish scales to chemical elements to enhance their beauty. The wide variety in cosmetics has continued throughout history. A traditional Chinese cosmetic was derived from fungus, and in the 17th century in England men and women used a deadly lead based foundation on their faces.
Luckily for the modern makeup enthusiast, times have changed. The cosmetics industry is overseen by regulators, including the Food and Drug Administration in the United States. There are also companies that endeavor to use the best of the ingredients available, excluding the artificial and the harmful chemicals that have been used in the past. A small but growing number of these cosmetic companies are making products that are vegan, meaning there are no animal products used to formulate the cosmetic. Some companies are also taking a stand against the practice of using animals as test subjects for their products. One of these companies is Lime Crime, a stellar, wild and fun cosmetic company based in Los Angeles.
