During filming for the movie Battle In Seattle, actors — including Woody Harrelson and Charlize Theron — requested that only all-natural products be used for makeup. Not surprisingly, there are a number of options available (and in increasing numbers) for such purposes. Lead make-up artist Monica Huppert chose a selection of organic skincare products from the Gorgeous skincare line, which is offered in the U.S. exclusively on the Alchemist’s Apprentice Web site. From the release,

“Gorgeous is a high-end, hand-made Australian skincare company, creating only pure products containing no water, no petroleum byproducts and no unwanted chemicals. Each product is made only from the rarest and most sought after 100% Pure and Natural essential oils, which is the internationally-recognized standard applied to only 1% of essential oils available in the world.”

Battle In Seattle follows the chaos of the 1999 Word Trade Organizations in — you guessed it — Seattle. It is directed by Stuart Townsend and also stars Ray Liotta, Connie Nielsen and Joshua Jackson. We should see it hit theaters sometime around November of next year.
