Why is it good for your skin?
Our Beauty Balm is 100% Organic & Vegan, it contains no chemicals or nasties just a host of all natural goodies for your skin like Aloe Vera, Sweet Almond oil, Camellia seed oil, Apricot kernel oil, macadamia oil, carrot seed oil, Cucumber & Japanese Green Tea Extracts.
Why No Titanium Dioxide?
All of our products contain no Titanium Dioxide as it's a chemically produced product (not "organic " at all) & there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that it is a carcinogen & not photo-stable (meaning that when you expose it to light on your face it creates free radicals that in turn ravage your skin cells) not good if you want to keep your youthful complexion!
The European Union has just declared Titanium Dioxide a level 2 Carcinogen in all concentrations over 1%, from 2020 all products with more than 1% TIDI will have to bare warning labels.
What about Nano Particles?
We use absolutely no nano particles or any ingredients that have been adulterated with nano technology.
How is it preserved, does it contain nasty preservatives?
Our Organic BB Cream is protected with Leucidal preservative, 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. The addition of Leucidal ensures that this lotion will be safe & spoil free for 12 months.
Each batch has a 18 month expiry date, but it will be long gone before then! I can not tell you how much you will love this product.
Why Organic Green Tea & Cucumber extracts?
We want our products to not only work as make up but also to heal & soothe your skin so you can put your best face forward. Adding organic extracts is just another way that our products can help to restore and maintain your skins youthful glow. Green Tea Extract is a potent anti-oxidant, that works as a tonic for your skin as it diminishes lines & wrinkles. Cucumber extract soothes, softens & binds moisture deep within your skin to stop your skin drying out
Why airless pump packaging?
Our airless pump bottles ensure no mess & no waste. But the best thing they do is ensure that your Organic BB Cream remains uncontaminated by bacteria & germs - ensuring a pure product to the last drop.
Why no vitamin E oil?
When we started out we used vitamin E oil in all our formulations in it’s natural form as d-alpha Tocopheryl but on researching natural sources of vitamin E oil we found that most natural vitamin E oil is derived from wheatgerm which is a potential irritant for anyone who has wheat or gluten sensitivities. These sensitivities can cause itchy, irritated, red skin, with dry scaly patches. We decided that the only real solution to this problem was to remove all Vitamin E from our products so that they can be 100% safe & non-irritating for everyone.
This is a light coverage product & I want a more full coverage product what can I do?
Everybody has their own personal preferences when it comes to make up & coverage, so we have created our matching Titanium Dioxide Free vegan Mineral Foundations
to compliment all of our products. This enables you to buff on the loose minerals over the top of your liquid foundation & create the depth of coverage you prefer - this is great for covering up acne, discolouration & any imperfections.
When you combine the two products you get a more complete coverage with all of the moisturising & brightening benefits of the organic BB cream & the beautiful light reflecting & soft airbrushing of the vegan Mineral powder.
