Physicians Formula Organic Wear CC Cream {Spotted}

Physicians Formula Organic Wear CC Cream

The very picked over Physicians Formula display at the Old Capitol Mall CVS store in Iowa City, IA

I spotted the newly Physicians Formula Organic Wear CC Cream at the CVS in Iowa City last weekend (my local stores haven’t turned up much). I was hoping to add it to my ever growing list of vegan BB + CC creams list and thought I had a good chance, since the Organic Wear line is generally vegan friendly.

A cursory glance at the ingredients listing, however, revealed the ingredient beeswax, so no luck on another vegan drugstore CC cream.

From the Physicians Formula website:

Titanium Dioxide 3.9%, Zinc Oxide 1% Inactive Ingredients: Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Water, Dodecane, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Titanium Dioxide, Polyglyceryl-4 Diisostearate/Polyhydroxystearate/Sebacate, Silica, Glycerin+, Lecithin, Water, Magnesium Sulfate, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Beeswax, Porphyra Umbilicalis Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Agave Tequilana Leaf Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba (Guar) Gum, Lauroyl Lysine, Leuconostoc / Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Leuconostoc Ferment Filtrate. May Contain: Iron Oxides

And, in case you were wondering, the new Physicians Formula Organic Wear CC Curl + Care Mascara also contains beeswax. That seems to be only non-vegan ingredient.

The leuconostoc ferment filtrate, also known as radish root ferment filtrate, found in both product appears to be vegan.
