Organic makeup and skin care products are fast becoming more popular in the world of beauty. In a market that’s fully saturated with big name brands that are full of chemicals, these brands are finally getting the spotlight they deserve.
Although many organic and natural beauty brands are becoming increasing popular (hey, why wouldn’t you want to put healthy ingredients on your skin?) they’re only now starting to push their way onto mainstream beauty shelves.
One of those great brands is Dr. Hauschka. It’s been around since 1967 and has had major celebrity shout outs and a following from Emma Roberts, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, Cate Blanchett and Madonna.
At the heart of Dr. Hauschka products is their use of medicinal plants, which grow on site at their facility in Germany. There, they cultivate about 150 different medicinal plants in a biodynamic way. They grow their own seeds, too.
The idea behind the brand is that their beauty products must be healing and nurturing to our skin and makeup should not inhibit these processes, but support it. No chemical additives are used and the products are not tested on animals.
With more of us wanting better ingredients in our skin care and makeup, the newly launched Dr. Hauschka makeup range, which coincides with their 50th Anniversary, could not have come at a better time.
It now consists of over 80 products! The range was developed together with professional Make-up Artists including spokesman Karim Sattar who helped develop the makeup range.
Lip Tip: “At first glance, this looks like any other lip liner, but,
in fact, it’s a sensational product for creating perfect lips.”
says Karim Sattar, Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist
on the new, transparent Lip Line Definer.
The new make-up range includes: Foundation 7 shades, Concealer 3 shades, Light Reflecting Concealer, Powder Loose translucent and Compact 3 shades, Colour Correcting Powder, Blush Duo 3 shades, Bronzer, Brow & Lash Gel, Eye & Brow Palette, Eyeshadow 5 shades, Eyeshadow Trio 4 shades, Eye Definer nude, Eye Definer, Liquid Eyeliner, Defining Mascara 3 shades, Volume Mascara 3 shades, Lip Line Definer, Lip Liner 5 shades, Lipstick 18 shades, Sheer Lipstick 6 shades, Lip Gloss 6 shades and six high-quality vegan Brushes.
