Have you ever stopped,
and really thought about what’s in the make-up you use?
We think about the food we’re putting into our bodies, or the skincare products that we’re using on our bodies - however the make-up products we choose are often overlooked. Make-up shouldn’t be forgotten.
People generally start using cosmetics in their teens, and during their lifetime their make-up routine changes frequently; depending on environment, occasion, ethics and trends. If you even think about your own daily routine, and how many single make-up products you use on average, it is pretty incredible.
So, if you’re consciously aware of so many other aspects of how you look after your body, isn’t it worth re-thinking the make-up products you are using?
Many beauty brands use unnecessary chemicals, synthetic ingredients and preservatives in their products, or many brands claim that they are natural when they’re far from it. They instead ‘green wash’ their advertising, and avoid talking about the bad ingredients that they use.
Great skincare covered by harsh make-up means you’re building something wonderful only to tear it down.
Nude by Nature chooses not to use unnecessary chemicals, and avoids ingredients that can irritate or put your skin at risk. For example, you may discover a couple of these ingredients we avoid listed on your make-up packaging:
- Carmine: Carmine is a red pigment derived from insects (beetles that live as parasites on cactus plants) and is used as a colorant in cosmetics, such as lipstick. Carmine is considered controversial due to its animal origin, and its association with possible allergic reactions.
- Bismuth Oxychloride: This is a powder created from bismuth, oxygen and chlorine that is used in cosmetics because it helps make-up to adhere to the skin. Due to its crystalline shape, some people experience irritation or itching, particularly when they sweat.
- Parabens: They are synthetically produced preservatives, commonly used in cosmetics to extend the shelf life of products. Parabens are considered controversial due to concerns over possible allergies and other health issues.
- Talc: Often used in make-up to absorb moisture and as a filler to add bulk to pigments. Talc can be abrasive and harsh on sensitive skin, potentially leading to irritation or breakouts.
- Silicones: Synthetically produced polymers commonly used as skin smoothers to give cosmetics a silky texture. Unfortunately this film forming property can also trap everything underneath, which can lead to increased breakouts.
- Synthetic Pigments / Dyes: Commonly used as vivid cosmetic colourants, and are often derived from petroleum and coal tar. Examples of synthetic dyes to look for are: CI 15850 (D&C Red No. 6), CI 17200 (Red 33 Lake), CI 45380 (Red 21), CI 42090 (Blue 1 Lake).
