THE 9 KILLER SKIN INGREDIENTS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT
We’re back with a bang this week makeup fans. You know we love to spread some of our artist knowledge with you and now is no exception.
We want to let you in on the secret 9 ingredients that will do the MOST for helping your latest beauty routine work for you rather than against you. We get it, lots of other makeup brands contain some less than natural ingredients and did you know that these can actually cause havoc for your skin (and not to mention the environment?! That’s not how we like to operate around here. Instead, we like to embrace clean cosmetics with open arms and all of the power Mother Nature can throw at us. Stay tuned for the top 9 ingredients you need to be looking for in your beauty stash.
The best bit? You’ll find ALL of them used throughout the entire range!
WHY CHOOSE CLEAN INGREDIENTS?
Modern life sure has a way of making a mark on us. Unfortunately, a lot of our daily life includes exposure to skin sensitizing environmental factors (think: pollution, overly harsh ingredients, fragrances, light damage as well as the daily dirt and grime). This can lead to a whole host of less than desirable skin complaints including dry and damaged skin, dehydration leading to a loss of elasticity, clogged pores, disrupted cell barriers and an even increased rate of skin aging. Not what we want. Our approach is to turn to our wonderful planet for protection and firmly embrace clean and natural ingredients. There’s good reason! All these harsh environmental aggressors can really impact sensitive skins. Whether you’ve got mature or teenage skin or suffer from conditions such as: hypersensitivity, rosacea, or acne, using nontoxic, clean makeup can benefit the skin at every age.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
NATURAL OILS & BUTTERS
Get ready to think hydration, hydration, hydration! The power of natural oils within formulations is legendary and these four are no exception. First up, Pomegranate Oil helps to regenerate, hydrate, and protect your skin against harmful UVA & UVB rays (responsible for aging and some cancers). It even helps to detoxify and is a key ingredient in our Dream Conceal and Vegan Skin Perfector liquid foundations. The benefits of Rose Oil, Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter are (almost) endless! Used primarily as top-notch hydrators they can also help soothe rosacea and acne flare ups due to their anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. We absolutely love them and include them right across the range from our in our Lip Love pencils to our Flawless Mineral Powder Foundations. Last but by no means least, is Avocado Oil – one of nature’s richest source of antioxidants. It not only packs a massive Vitamin E punch to nourish and moisturise, but it also aids with absorption of other important nutrients within our unique formulations. It really does like to play well with others!
Aloe Vera. You know that big spikey plant often found in the desert or exotic locations? That’s the one! It’s been used as a natural wound healing agent for centuries and it helps to fight acne, prevent dark spots, and even reduce the signs of aging by stimulating cell turnover! It’s also packed with different vitamins (A, B, C, D, and E) as well as Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc. It’s a real powerhouse and that’s why we use it in pretty much every TMF product!
We’re sure you probably know that Vitamin C is, in fact, a bit of a beauty legend?! Incorporate it into your existing makeup routine and you can say goodbye to uneven skin tone, texture, first signs of aging, acne scars and even general dullness. That’s where the Kakadu Plum comes in. Grown right here in Northern Australia, it has the highest recorded level of natural Vitamin C content of any plant in the WORLD (sorry oranges), and you bet it’s included in our complexion perfecting products.
When it comes to those environmental aggressors we spoke about earlier, Green Tea really does have your back. It helps to protect against them and prevent those first signs of aging. Green tea contains EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) which is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants. It’s also rich in Vitamin E and B3 and is included within our Flawless Powder Foundation, Pure Skin Primers, Dream Conceal and Vegan Skin Perfector Liquid foundations.
Kaolin Clay is a little bit special, it’s rich in silica and has a neutral pH. You may in fact have heard of it being referred to as White Clay or China Clay and of all of the clay extracts contained within cosmetics – Kaolin Clay is the mildest. This makes it perfect for use in products suitable for those with dry or sensitive skin. That’s why we choose to include it in our Art Series eye pigments. It’s known to gently detox and clear pores (no product build-up after application) and absorb excess oils to keep your eye look looking freshly applied all day (or night).
