If you’re anything like me, you want to know that the products you spend your hard-earned money on are supporting the local economy. I feel much better splurging when I know that I am supporting American jobs. While this is nowhere near an exhaustive list, here are ten beauty and personal care brands that are made right here in the United States of America!

Stila Cosmetics

According to The Alliance for American Manufacturing,  Stila Cosmetics are made in Glendale, CA.

Mario Badescu

Mario Badescu’s skincare products have a well-deserved cult following, and they are made in New York. (Protip: If you use their famous facial sprays, especially in the summer or after a workout, try keeping them in the refrigerator for an extra refreshing mist!)


Philosophy, well-known for their body care, facial care, and perfumes, are made in America.

Schmidt’s Natural

Schmidt’s makes all-natural deodorants, toothpastes, soap, and household cleaners. They are based in Portland, OR. I am personally a big fan of Schmidt’s Charcoal Magnesium deodorant, and I really love that it is available at most drug stores!

Beauty Blender

Beauty Blender, famous for their applicators, is made in Pennsylvania. Also, according to the FAQs on their website, they offer discounts for military and teachers.

OPI Products

OPI’s trendsetting nail care and manicure products are made in their factory in North Carolina.

Sun Bum

I first discovered Sun Bum’s sun-care products when I went snorkeling on vacation in Hawaii. I was looking for a reef-safe sunscreen which they offered. I’ve since fallen in love with their entire product line. They offer a range of sun protection and hair care products that are manufactured in Florida. Please note that according to the FAQs on the Sun Bum website here, the babycare line “Baby Bum” is manufactured in Australia.


Glossier is one of the trendiest skincare and makeup companies right now. They are headquartered in NYC and manufacture their products in the United States!

L’Oreal USA

Although the parent company the L’Oreal Group is based in Paris, France, L’Oreal USA  (the umbrella company of thirty-two sub-brands) is headquartered in New York. According to the L’Oreal USA website, they manufacture their products in one of their five US-based facilities.

Not Your Mother’s  (NYM)

Not Your Mother’s hair products are made in the USA. Their  Cleanfreak dry shampoo is a lifesaver!
