My first career was hairstyling. However over the years, I developed sensitivities to some of the products and chemicals we were using on a daily basis.
That was in 2003. I had two small children and decided that it was time to live a more holistic lifestyle. I changed many household and personal care items to healthier, more environmentally friendly alternatives. The last products to go were my color cosmetics. I was accustomed to using high-quality, salon brands and could not find “natural” makeup on the market that met my expectations. I have always had an insatiable desire to “make it myself”.
I made colors for myself, friends and family. I started to see there was a demand for a more natural alternative to traditional cosmetics. This is a good thing, and we are pleased to offer consumers a line of products that can make them feel fabulous, without compromising on the safety of the ingredients.
Since the ingredients used in our products are sourced from around the world, we do our best to research the supply chain to ensure the ingredients we purchase are fairly traded. Our shea butter comes from a women’s co-op in west Africa. Our Mica supplier ensures that their product is mined ethically in India without the use of child labour. They own their own mines, fund schools and daycare centers so that the quality of life for their employees is fair.
It’s estimated that only 5% of makeup brands actually have a hand in making their own product. The rest rely on third party, contract manufacturing companies to produce their line. Since the cosmetic industry isn’t well-regulated, there is room for dishonesty in labelling, and green-washing. Our products are made in our own, certified organic lab and manufacturing facility in Morden, Manitoba. Aside from a few products (nail polish and pencils), we have the benefit of being in control of our formulations, ingredients and processes.
Our goal is to create luxurious, affordable cosmetics exclusively using ingredients that are derived from nature.
We are committed to choosing ingredients that are least likely to cause skin irritations and allergic reactions. With that said, it may still be possible to be sensitive to a naturally sourced ingredient.Our products do NOT contain: Gluten (our Vitamin E is derived from Rice Bran or non GMO soy), Tree Nuts (or oils - exception: Eyeliner Pencils contain Almond Oil), Bismuth Oxychloride (common mineral irritant).
I am honoured to have the privilege of helping women bring out their natural beauty!
