One of the questions we get asked a lot is “is the All Natural Mascara waterproof?”. Answer below:

Many waterproof and long lasting makeup products require certain chemicals to provide the long lasting wear. These chemicals can be toxic and have been linked to PFA’s. See a recent article by Environmental Defence called “New study finds PFAS chemicals hiding in some “long-lasting” and “waterproof” makeup”

Because at Birch Babe we use only certified all natural and organic ingredients our mascara will last the day however not in water.

Our All Natural Mascara Cake and Travel Friendly Reusable Wand can be purchased as a kit or on their own. 

  • If you have a wand already: You can shop for just the mascara cake.
  • If you’re refilling your mascara cake: Keep your existing wand and purchase the cake on its own!
