Is the make-up you use good for your skin and the planet?
Changing from conventional cosmetics to organic and skin-friendly make-up can give you a real sense of social responsibility. You can be confident that the products you’re putting on your clients’ skin are free from ingredients that are potentially damaging to their health and the environment.
Inika Organic is the leading natural, organic and vegan make-up beauty brand that offers products with skincare benefits. Here’s everything you need to know about organic make-up.
What are the skin benefits of using organic make-up?
Skin has the amazing ability to absorb what we put on it, so switching from traditional to organic make-up can dramatically reduce the amount of toxins and synthetics your skin is exposed to on a daily basis.
Unlike conventional cosmetics, which can contain ingredients that pose a negative effect on the environment, certified organic make-up is produced without chemicals or pesticides. Making this choice means you’re helping to reduce the amount of toxicity entering the environment and decreasing the likelihood of water pollution due to chemical run off.
Inika Organic is certified organic, so our products are free from:
- Genetically-modified organisms (GMOs)
- Synthetic fillers, fragrance and colours.
Not only is organic make-up free from chemicals and synthetic ingredients, it's packed with nutrient-rich plants and botanicals to help support skin health.
At Inika Organic, we harness the skin-loving benefits of many natural, certified organic ingredients including sunflower seed oil (which is rich in vitamins A, C, D and E), prickly pear seed oil (packed with omega 6 and 9), avocado oil (which stimulates collagen) and shea Butter (antioxidant and anti-inflammatory).
3 important skin ingredients to look out for in make-up:
1. Hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid (HA) can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water for ultimate hydration and increased skin elasticity.
It’s a key ingredient not only in the Inika Organic primer, but also in our Certified Organic Liquid Foundation with Hyaluronic Acid, which provides some serious glow and buildable coverage.
2. Vitamin E
Vitamin E also has moisturising benefits for the skin and it is a great multi-tasker, proven to soothe irritation as well as prevent and treat the signs of ageing.
Plus, because it’s gentle enough to use around the eye area, it’s found in Inika’s Certified Organic Perfection Concealer, as well as our Hydrating Foundation.
If you’ve ever wondered how to make your face glow naturally, get to know Jojoba. This antioxidant-rich ingredient not only deeply moisturises the skin but has balancing properties, so you’ll always be on the right side of dewy, not shiny.
4. No artificial fragrances
Traditional make-up may contain artificial fragrance, which can be potentially harmful to your health. Organic make-up on the other hand is free from synthetic fragrance, relying solely on the natural scent of botanical ingredients.
Using the highest certified ingredients and strictest processes, Inika Organic products are certified organic, vegan, cruelty-free, halal and 100% non-toxic.
