I love this foundation balm and being able to combine it with the powder to build up coverage. I really like knowing that now when I'm wearing foundation, I'm actually doing something good for my skin.
Product works fine, but I really can't tolerate the smell...
Love it!!! Not only does it work but it smells amazing. The owner was highly communicative and cooperative when resolving some of my shipping issues (that I caused by putting the wrong zip code). Great shop and great products, will definitely order from here again!
Paint Yourself with Plants
WELCOME! To the continued romantic plant beauty saga. Our new Spring Collection is here! 💐
The Good4You journey first began in 2004 where I first discovered the language of plants in a medicinal herb greenhouse. I felt called upon to be a voice for nature in our modern era. The ten year journey to now has been filled with so many plant adventures in tea blending, tincture making, foraging, salve formulation + hydrosol production. This has lead me to focusing on using the gifts of my local surroundings to offering raw ingredients + plant makeup + natural skin care, an evolving dream of mine as an artist / plantist from the very start of this quest.
The ancient plant world speaks with no words, but a language transferable to open hearts.
All my ingredients are either locally grown by me // foraged locally or certified organic. I only want the best in each of these creations so they vibrate with as much vitality as they were first gathered from the earth. I have a great respect for nature and only want to inspire + spread a message of conservation, protection and awareness through anything I offer back to the world. Because of this my batches are small + special, based on the season and sometimes limited edition. I enjoy knowing I spoil anyone who receives these creations with the highest quality I can possibly offer.
All of my orders are sent with love, wrapped in upcycled // recycled // compostable materials. Packaging that isn't upcycled is purchased from eco enclose, an amazing earth conscious company. Orders are shipped without little invoices to reduce the amount of paper used. All packages are also biked to the post office by me. I try my best to use earth friendly packaging for my products too.
I just want to help people + the planet as much as I can ... my mission is simply to inspire. Find your niche. Work for yourself. Make sure it can somehow salvage a ton of the waste we make. Inspire the generations to come.
▵ All ingredients are local or organic + sustainably sourced.
▵ All batches are small.
▵ All products are plant based + 100% natural.
▵ All packages are wrapped in eco friendly materials.
▵ 100% Handmade with love.

Frequently asked questions
What is Plant Makeup?
Plant Makeup is a bit different than regular makeup. It applies lighter on skin compared to bold dramatic colors. When Plant Makeup creator Jes first started out studying plants, she made plant based paints for a project in a class she was taking. The result was a lighter gentler paint, compared to deep colored conventional paints. Chemicals make it possible to obtain crazy makeup colors. Really cool shades, but not really made of the best ingredients. So plants themselves act more like a natural dye than a dramatic bold color stain. A compromise or new way of true natural beauty.
Why do some of the makeup products have a grainy texture?
All our Plant Makeup products are chemical free, oxide free and if made with mica, it is natural sourced + pure. Everything is plant based with the exception of using beeswax and sustainably sourced earth clays. Since most products are made with plants, some do contain little bits leftover from milling. For powders, these gently fall away after applying and for balms they can be rubbed in as a gentle exfoliate and will eventually fall away. We do our best to omit larger particles, but it is hard to get them all. It is always our hope that Plant Makeup users are open minded and can welcome slight compromises to these very pure all natural makeup products.
Why do we use beeswax?
Our beeswax is sourced locally from Warm Colors Apiary, we find the quality to be some of the finest on the planet. We chose beeswax because it is less of a carbon foot print. We know the bee keepers personally and they run a super happy bee farm. We do offer many vegan alternatives for products made with plant waxes or no waxes at all. Please see the Good4You Vegan Guide for a complete list of all vegan offerings: good4youherbals.com/post/131835684208/g4uveganguide
Do the foundation balms offer coverage ?
Our foundation balms are meant to be used as a healing salve base that gently conceal + heal as a daily moisturizer. Used in combination with one of our foundation powders, you can build the amount of coverage you need. Jes personally uses healing balm every couple of hours on her face + skin throughout the day. With using a foundation balm, one can do the same and at the same time heal + even out one's tone. So the secret purpose of the foundation balms are to protect the skin and at the same time add light coverage. We don't recommend this balm as the solution to perfectly concealing blemishes.
How do I find my perfect foundation shade ?
All Plant Makeup foundation powders are very true to their pictures, so it is our hope that one can find their perfect tone with a simple glance through. For the foundation balms, one truly cannot go wrong. They apply sheer, however as they get darker, add more tone. The foundation balms are in a sense tinted moisturizers, perfect for daily where under your favorite concealer or mixed with a Plant Makeup foundation powder to build the amount of coverage you need.
Are Good4You Plant Makeup products palm oil free?
Yes! We are a 100% palm oil free beauty brand.
