At Youthforia, we believe that the best part of makeup is having fun with your friends. And sometimes that means forgetting to take your makeup off.

We believe that having fun with your friends shouldn't compromise your health and values.

For us, a big thing we think about is reducing our Down the Drain Impact. On average, we probably use about 15 products a day - that's 500 chemicals we wash down the drain. And let's be real, on a full glam day, that's probably like 50 products and 2000 chemicals. Most of these ingredients are made out of fossil fuels.

At Youthforia, we certify our products with USDA BioPreferred - which means a majority of our ingredients biobased (which means they aren't made with fossil fuels). We're able to achieve the textures and performance we come to love and expect in our makeup by using natural and plant-based synthetic ingredients.
