WHY WE LOVE VAPOUR BEAUTY PART I
We recently launched Vapour Beauty - a gorgeous new makeup brand with clean ingredients and the highest performance we've seen in the green beauty world. In this four part blog series, we cover why we love Vapour Beauty. We'll cover four topics: ingredients, performance, ecological impact and transparency. In the first part we cover Vapour's ingredient philosophy. Although no brand is perfect, we value and appreciate brands that do their part to make products that are clean and non-toxic as much as possible. We want to see that a brand values our client's health and is aware of its ecological footprint before we ever list it at Clean Beauty House. Grab a tea and let's explore Vapour Beauty.
Vapour respects the power of plants to support health, beauty and wellbeing. They have earned the “Champion Safety Status” from the Environmental Working Group and Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.
They set high standards for ingredient performance and purity; their clean ingredients meet or exceed international green beauty standards. Ingredients are responsibly sourced and have the best environmental ratings. They choose organically farmed and naturally derived, minimally processed ingredients.
WHEN CHOOSING INGREDIENTS, VAPOUR BEAUTY CONSIDER THEIR IMPACT ON HABITAT, WATER SUPPLIES AND AQUATIC LIFE
Organic farming nurtures the health of farmers and ecosystems, mitigates climate change, protects the water table from pesticide run-off, and supports healthy bee colonies. When choosing ingredients, they consider their impact on habitat, water supplies and aquatic life.
Vapour cosmetics support the skin with nourishing antioxidants, EFAs (essential fatty acids), vitamins and minerals. Healthy ingredients blended with intention encourage beautiful, radiant skin.
Vapour products do not contain synthetic FD&C or Lake colorants. Vapour is colored exclusively with minerals and carmine.
Mineral pigments have been used since the cave paintings of Lascaux in 15,000 B.C. Mineral pigments are compatible with skin color and tone resulting in the most natural looking and inclusive shade range.
Aztec and Mayan peoples colored textiles with carmine as early as the 15th century. Its first recorded cosmetic use was in England in 1523. Carmine is the cleanest way to achieve a diverse and complex range of pinks and reds.
Vapour does not use any artificial fragrances or perfumes. Their scents are created exclusively using pure essential oils and natural fruit flavors.
