Check your computer documentation for the optimum setting for your particular monitor. This site is best viewed with Chrome, Firefox 3, Safari 3, Internet Explorer 7 or higher and a minimum monitor resolution of 1024 x 768.

How can I get Josie Maran Cosmetics samples?
We are currently unable to mail out samples by request. When you shop with us online we provide samples with our orders (when available).
Is Josie Maran Cosmetics an organic cosmetics line?
Josie Maran Cosmetics is a natural cosmetics line. We do have products that are 100% organic, but not all are formulated in this manner. We formulate with as many powerful natural and organic ingredients as possible because of the implicit health benefits these ingredients provide you and the planet. Plus, by purchasing natural and organic ingredients we are supporting farmers who value more sustainable and eco-friendly agricultural practices. We also use fair trade ingredients (where applicable) to insure that the suppliers are duly compensated for their work.
Why do you use synthetics in some of your makeup products?
Over time, we have found that a small number of synthetic ingredients are essential to maintain the performance, color, and stability of a high-end cosmetics line. We strive to be as green and healthy as possible while providing the most gorgeous, wearable, and lasting makeup possible.
Is Josie Maran Cosmetics a vegan cosmetics line?
We offer a wide variety of products acceptable to our vegan customers (see the View Our Icons tab under the About the Brand page). We are always mindful of our producers and sources, so when we do use non-vegan ingredients such as lanolin, beeswax, or carmine we make sure that they are organic and/or sustainably harvested.
Is Josie Maran Cosmetics gluten free?
The Argan Moisture Stick, the Mini Argan Moisture Stick, and the Argan Color Sticks in Rosey and Petal Pink all contain wheat germ oil. Studies have proven inconclusive as to whether or not wheat germ oil contains gluten, but we believe it's safer to err on the side of caution for those with gluten sensitivity. None of our other products are formulated with ingredients that contain gluten. Our cosmetics are made following good manufacturing practices; however, they may be produced or stored near gluten containing ingredients.
Does Josie Maran Cosmetics use parabens?
No. We do not use parabens, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, or sulfates in any of our products.
Is nanotechnology being used with the titanium dioxide or zinc oxide in your Protect SPF?
No, these naturally occurring minerals are not turned into nano particles. The titanium dioxide and zinc oxide reflect the sun without being absorbed into the skin, thus providing an effective, chemical free barrier.
What is the percentage of Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide in Protect SPF?
Titanium Dioxide is 9.5%, Zinc Oxide is 6.0%
Do you have a catalogue?
We currently do not have a catalogue available.
