When you unscrew the lid of your Organic Liquid Foundation or BB Cream, don’t be alarmed by the absence of a long straw. 


We often receive emails and messages from our lovely customers asking why their MG Naturals goodies don’t have a plastic straw inside. 


We use “airless pump technology” that utilises a product elevator in the bottom of the bottle to gently push the product up with each pump. Our airless pumps ensure no mess & no waste. But the best thing by far is that your Organic Foundation & BB Cream remains uncontaminated by bacteria & germs - ensuring a pure product to the last drop.


Read on to learn more about the amazing benefits of using Airless Pump Bottles! ;)


What are Airless Pump Bottles?

Airless pump bottles use a non-pressurised vacuum for dispensing liquids by utilizing a mechanical pump. As you push down on the pump, the disc in the bottle rises to push the product out of the pump. 


To put it simply, the airless pump bottles allow you to dispense the contents without taking off the lid when the contents are low.



What are the Benefits of Airless Pump Bottles?

  • No dip tube/plastic straw required so they are more environmentally friendly.
  • Airless pump bottles help increase the shelf life of the product. Once the bottle is filled, the material stored inside the bottle is preserved and maintains its integrity until used up. This is due to the contents being in a sealed vacuum.
  • The vacuum dispensing effect draws the product out creating less wastage.
  • The liquid contents do not touch any metal springs which can cause oxidization problems. In conventional makeup bottles, an ugly brown or orange residue can appear around the dispensing pump. Airless bottle pumps have been designed so the liquid does not encounter the spring.
  • The bottle does not need to be sitting upright to pump the content out. An airless container can lie on its side or be stored upside down. 
  • The sealed chamber and vacuum design allows for no chemical preservatives to be added. Our Organic Foundation & BB Cream are protected with Leucidal preservative - a kimchi ferment, and the only preservative I will use on my families skin. Leucidal is a natural extract derived from radishes that have been fermented with Leuconostoc Kimchii (the lactic acid bacteria that is traditionally used to make Kimchi). Leucidal liquid is approved by ECOCERT as a preservative in certified organic cosmetics. This probiotic-based ingredient has the ability to fight acne, combat skin dryness, leaves skin feeling smoother and helps to gently erase wrinkles.

What to do if Pump Stops Working?

Occasionally, especially with viscous creams like our Liquid Foundation & BB Cream, there will be a need to re-prime the internal pump mechanism. This is very common with airless dispensers and should not be considered faulty. The small disk inside the bottle that moves to the top as you pump, can become stuck and will need to be loosened so it can move freely again. To do this, follow these steps:


Step 1. Ensure that the pump is tightly screwed onto the bottle.

Step 2.Firmly tap the base of the bottle on a firm surface 3-4 times.

Step 3. Pump the dispenser slowly about 15-20 times upside down.

Step 4. Repeat steps 1-3 at anytime if required.


Pro Tip:

These airless dispensers do not have a tube or straw inside.

We do not recommend removing the pump from the bottle if it stops pumping as this will let air into the bottle and will affect the potency of the product over time.
