Our brands and why we like them
I love this Canadian company for its commitment to clean, cruelty-free ingredients and highly sustainable packaging. What’s more, their products are vegan and, for those that highly gluten-sensitive, gluten-free. My clients love their cream blushes and highlighters, as well as their amazing setting powders. It’s a small company based out of Victoria, BC — just the kind of brand I like to support and help grow.
Zao Organic Makeup
Zao is an eco-luxury makeup brand made in France and Italy. Their products are 100% natural, certified organic, toxic-free, cruelty-free, gluten-free and vegan. Besides their eco-friendliness, I’ve chosen them for the high quality and performance of their products, whose innovation compares to that of the top makeup brands in the world. They have a wide range of makeup and brushes, and I especially like their wonderful silk foundations, eye pencils, and mascaras.
Maya Chia’s skincare products are made in USA from super high quality natural, organic and wildcrafted ingredients sourced from conscious growers here and worldwide. They’re also committed limited plastic in their packaging, and I really appreciate the overall beauty of their products, which really appeal to all the senses. Their rich formulations smell simply wonderful — a treat for anyone into aromatherapy. I especially like their oil based cleaners and illuminating serums, which work particularly well as makeup primers.
Luxe’s line is precision-formulated with high concentrations of unique botanicals and enhanced by other sustainable ingredients. I have chosen their serums and moisturizers on the basis of this quality as well as their product efficacy. You can actually see a change in your skin after a single use. They are also committed to sustainable packaging, using glass and aluminum with only limited plastic elements. All in all, this is a luxury skincare brand for discriminating users.
Honua Hawaiian Skincare
Aloha means love and compassion, and this Hawaii-based family-owned skin care company completely fits with this spirit, sharing with the world their love for Hawaiian music, culture, botanicals, and aesthetics. Their high-quality products are affordable and are all made from wildcrafted and sustainably-farmed local ingredients. Very concerned by their environmental footprint, they use only glass packaging with a small proportion of plastic in it.
“We thank you for choosing to wear no evil.” Now that’s the kind of attitude I can get behind. Axiology makes lipsticks and crayons — all high quality, naturally-derived, vegan, ethically made, and very on trend in terms of colors, which is something not many natural brands can claim. They also have great packaging, made of recyclable aluminum.
