Aesthetica Cosmetics & Creams (Score 3) – This company is highly relational and touts innovative solutions for skin care and make up.

Inspired by the creativity of Milan, Alfaparf Milano easily stands out with its Italian style, refined perfection, and detailed care.

Amazon (Score: 3) – We are an Amazon affiliate, meaning that we may make a commission when you click on products we review or recommend. As a huge seller of millions of products, Amazon sometimes offers products and books that are not wholesome.

Arieshine Beauty (Score: 4) – This is an American company located in New York, specializes in false magnetic eyelashes with a variety of different and high quality styles. Their website and company materials seem wholesome and honest and there is nothing that we’ve found which is not faith-friendly. So…since they are made in the USA we will give them a high ranking for now. For an example of Arieshine, click here.
Artisan L’uxe (Score 3) – We need the help of each member of our community to score this company. Our usual methodology is to award a mid-range score to companies until we find out more about the values and culture a company until we find out more about them. This is the case with this company. For an example of Artisan L’uxe, click here.
Beauty Junkees (Score: 3) – There are some good reviews for this small company touting their products as being as good or better than the big companies. They are highly relational and even have a toll-free number on their website and take personal calls. Not much is revealed about their values or faith-friendly stance though, and until we find out more we have given them a mid-range score. For an example of a Beauty Junkees product click here.
Benefit Cosmetics (Score: 4) – This company was started by two midwestern women who began with a small boutique in San Francisco. This company has now has a presence in many countries around the world, but remains largely a family owned company. They are fun and so have have not been shown to be averse to faith and integrity. And…they are American owned so they currently rank high on our scale. Click here for an example of Benefit Cosmetics.
Bestland (Score: 2) – The Bestland brand is a cosmetic trademark of Shenzhen Nasen E-Commerce Co. Ltd. The brand has high customer reviews for their products, but has no website we could find. Given China’s sketchy record on human rights, abortion, and religious persecution we are giving this company a low score until we find out more. For an example of a Bestland product click here.
Dermablend (Score 3) – Started in 1981 by dermatologist Dr. Craig Roberts, this American company has high reviews and a commitment to skin health and pure ingredients. They tout their stringent tests for safety and purity, as well as their commitment to cruelty free animal testing. We see nothing in their advertising or company documents suggesting they are not faith-friendly, so until we know more, they will be ranked at the mid-point of our scale. Click here for an example of Dermablend’s many varied, creative, and unique makeup and skin products.
Eddie Funkhauser (Score 3) – This company touts cruelty free cosmetic testing and high quality pigments in their make up. In our research, they do not reveal very much about their philosophy and values as a company, so until we find out more we will give them a mid-range score. Click here for an example of an Eddie Funkhauser product.
Estee Lauder (Score 4) – With brands like Estee Lauder and Clinique, this company is generally wholesome and good. They tout pure, natural, and scientifically tested products, and have quickly responded whenever they hear any hint of any of their producers doing anything that violates labor laws or animal testing. A special win for this company is their consistent support for Israel. Click here for an example of Estee Lauder products.
Facebook (Score: 3) – Like Amazon we at Want The Good use Facebook to build our community and get our message out. Facebook does have mixed record, though. They sometimes fact-check in the wrong way and have mistakenly banned some religious organizations until it was called to their attention. But we also appreciate Facebook because it has given millions of people ways to sort out information and relate to others of like faith. Before Facebook we were all so dependent upon the mainstream media, and Facebook has helped get around their information monopoly. For more information about Facebook here’s a good book called “Facebook: The Inside Story.”
Frenessa (Score: 4) – Not much can be found about this brand that makes high quality, professional train cases and make up cases. So until we can find more info we will park this company at a score of four. Check out some Frenessa products here.
Lancome (Score: 2) – This is a large French company majoring on makeup and skincare. They have existed since the 1930’s and have hundreds of high quality and cost effective products. One problematic issue for Lancome is their support of the oppressive regime in China, even to the point of canceling a Hong Kong concert endorsement when they found out that it was a pro-democracy. Click here for an example of a Lancome product.
L’Oreal (Score: 2) – Encompassing dozens of brands, L’Oreal is one of the largest cosmetic companies in the world. Their commitment to the environment and sustainability is admirable, some of their brands are definitely not family-friendly, and do not reflect Christian values. For this reason they are lower in our rankings. Click here for an example of L’Oreal products.
Make Up Forever (Score: 4) – Make Up Forever consists of make up artists committed to the art of make up. They do seminars, sponsor boutiques, offer services, and have a line of products. They have been around since the mid 1980’s.
Naqier (Score: 3) – This is one of those big international companies with a large line of makeup products but very little about the actual company on the Internet. We couldn’t even find a website, so this must be an importer. Because of the lack of transparency we could not give this company a higher score, even though all their products seem wholesome and faith-friendly. Click here for an example of a Naqier product.
Ninasill (Score: 2) – Ninasill is a brand from an importer in China. Not much more is known about this company, but given China’s dubious human rights and religious freedom record along with the fairly low customer ratings, we are ranking this brand in the lower range of our scores. Still, their products are very inexpensive and are worth a try if you cannot find equivalent products elsewhere. Click here for an example of a Ninasill product.
NYX Professional Makeup (Score: 1) – This is definitely not a family-friendly company. With immodest photos, provocative language, and rebellion on display, NYX advertises to all that they are not interested in the patronage of people of faith. Their quality seems to be good and their makeup is cruelty-free, but in our opinion the negatives outweigh the positives so we are ranking them in our lower range. For an example of an NYX product, click here.
Ownest Beauty USA (Score 3) – This is a brand name belonging to a company in Guangzhou, China. The name of the compnay is obscure since the only web presence is in Chinese Characters.

Phoera Cosmetics (Score 3) – This company is a London-based global company with a wide range of makeup products with a specialty in foundations. They are committed to purity and quality.

Sacha Cosmetics (Score: 4) – This company began in Trinidad and Tobago and is now headquartered in Coral Springs, Florida. They have received awards form entrprenuership and have a wide array of products for face, lips, and eyes. And, they claim to be the most advanced brand of makeup for women with skin of all shades – African, Hispanic, Asian, Indian and other women of color. Their company seems to be pure and wholesome so we will give them a “four.” For an example of Sacha, click here!
Shany (Score: 4) – This Texas-based company started in 2006 as a home business by a college student who loved make up but wanted to provide higher quality products at a lower price. It is now a larger company with a diverse inventory and a large cadre of raving fans. We found no moral or values based problems with this company, so until we find out more we are giving it a score in our upper range. For an example of a Shany product, click here.
SLAM Beauty (Score: 3) – This company is Philippines-based and is the makeup component of SLAM Productions, an event production company.

TingBeauty (Score: 2) – This company is UK and China based and was begun by Ting Wang in 2017. They try to establish their distinctive as a company that does not take shortcuts, care for the environment, and even features some handmande products. They are not very transparent. And, so little is known about this company we must give it a ranking in the lower ranges for now. Click here for an example of a TingBeauty product.
Tula Skincare (Score: 4) – A Harvard-educated physician started Tula Skincare which specializes in skin care products that are organic and contain probiotic elements. They are not about before-and-after pictures, or anti-aging testimonials…just healthy skin. We have found nothing in this company that would compromise the values of a purchaser.
Two Faced Cosmetics (Score: 3) – This American company touts itself as fun and free-spirited. With in your face marketing and a website that whirls you around like a roulette wheel you are faced with a barrage of images and colors urging you to buy. Not much is known about the values and faith-friendly stance of this company so we are keeping their ranking in the mid-range for now. For an example of a Two Faced product, click here.
UCANBE Cosmetics (Score: 4) – We are very impressed with this Hong Kong based company. Their website is wholesome and helpful and until we find out anything negative about this company we are ranking them in the upper range since they are from Hong Kong and not mainland China. Click here for an example of UCANBE.
Yiwu Trading Company (Score: 3) – This company imports a variety of products under brand names such as Sooyee, Happy Nina, and Dutchflower. They offer custom branding as well. An import company providing a conduit for products from China is somewhat problematic given China’s human rights record and persecution of religion. Still, China has such a lock on certain products and pharmaceuticals we almost have to do business with them at this point. For an example of Yiwu, click here.
