More about our natural makeup
Everyone wants to think they're using the most natural makeup that is both safe to use and also effective, but the truth is that a lot of the products you see in stores and online just aren't that great for your skin in the long-term.
They use harsh chemicals and preservatives, or they add talc powder and other fillers just to squeeze some extra money out of you, which can have the opposite effect on your skin compared to what you wanted.
Now you can find award-winning healthy makeup from the Colorescience crew and forget about all of those risky ingredients and fillers. So, let's take a closer look at healthy cosmetics and what they can do for you.
Does wearing makeup ruin your skin?
That depends on what kind of makeup you're wearing, of course, but yes it is true that some ingredients in various types of makeup can damage your skin in the long-term. The damage can be caused in many ways.
For example, many forms of makeup that come in a powder are mixed with talc. This is bad for a number of reasons. First of all, you're paying for that talc because it adds to the weight of the product. This ingredient also dehydrates the skin, causing irritation and clogged pores. Talc has also been shown in tests to contain asbestos, which can cause cancer when inhaled.
Traditional types of makeup also contain an almost endless list of chemicals and synthetic fragrances, many of which have still not been fully evaluated by the scientific community, but what we do know is that some of them aren't good for you.
What makes Colorescience makeup healthy?
As mentioned above, many traditional cosmetics contain all kinds of chemicals and synthetic ingredients. On the other hand, here at Colorescience UK we are developing products based on a need for healthy cosmetics. Women all over the world are looking for a more natural alternative to chemical-based makeup and skincare products, and we are dedicated to meeting this need.
