Vapour Organic Beauty
For many make up is a form of expression or a way of communicating their personalities. As far as I’m concerned, I like make up when used as a form of expression for certain projects. On an average day, I want make up just to enhance my features and cover minor blemishes and that’s just about it. Choosing clean make up can be tricky and although you can find a wide variety of products available online, it is important to understand how to choose a make up products that actually work for you. Let’s start with what to avoid when looking for clean make products.
What Ingredients to avoid –
Lead – Although lead occurs naturally in nature, we are all aware of lead poisoning. Once considered a rumour that some lipsticks contain lead, it turned out to be true when the FDA tested hundreds of lipsticks following an alert issued by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. Lead mainly affects the nervous system and harms the hormonal system. (read my post on organic lip balms) .
Talc – talc has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. You may want to avoid it completely or you can look for certified and organic products. But please make sure you keep it away from your babies. Alternatives to talc are – arrowroot, cornflower, silica etc. Talc is a natural mineral with an absorbent effect that leaves the skin shine free and smooth.
Fragrance – since I have extremely sensitive skin, I avoid fragrance. Most lipsticks, mascara, foundations include artificial fragrances.
What Ingredients to look for –
Water, aloe vera, coconut oil, jojoba oil and iron oxides.
Zinc oxide – used as a white pigment and non synthetic chemical sunscreen.
Kaolin also known as China Clay – kaolin is a soft white clay principally made up of mineral kaolinite.
I discovered Vapour over a year ago mainly because of the clean ingredients list. If there is one organic make up brand you want to try, start with Vapour Beauty. Here is everything you should know about the brand and about the products.

This is Vapour’s best product, especially if you are an amateur at applying make up like me. It covers the blemishes and leaves a soft glow on the skin. I’ve used foundations in the past but when you have a natural foundation that is so perfect you would never want to use anything else. It a great relief that it suits my sensitive skin perfectly.
