INTRODUCING VAPOUR ORGANIC BEAUTY
Beauty lit from within. This is the grounding philosophy behind renowned natural beauty label Vapour Organic Beauty. This year we invited Vapour onto the shelves and into our makeup bags, as one of only a handful of mindfully selected international clean beauty brands we now offer at conscious.kin. The Vapour Organic Beauty story is enchanting; they hail from the Mountains of Taos, New Mexico, where art and alchemy merge in their line of multi-award winning, cult-worthy organic cosmetics created with the health of our bodies and the planet in mind. Created by founders Krysia Boinis and Kristine Keheley, with their combined knowledge of healing botanicals and ‘alchemical blending’, Vapour blurs the line between skincare and makeup, making beauty and wellness truly inseparable. Think highly pigmented natural mineral colours, moisturizing bases and cruelty-free formulas packed full of skin-loving antioxidants. This is the Vapour way.
With the clean beauty movement and #maketheswap campaigns, Vapour Organic Beauty have taken it one step further with their Clean Swaps, bravely and unabashedly offering up a clean beauty replacement for high end cosmetic products.
THE VAPOUR DIFFERENCE
Cruelty-Free | Vapour Organics are never tested on animals, as certified by the Leaping Bunny Program, an internationally recognised cruelty-free standard. While not strictly Vegan, they offer a range of carmine-free products.
Recyclable | Where possible Vapour Organic package their products in glass and use aluminium stick applicators, both widely recycleable.
USDA Certified Organics | With the knowledge that 'absorbed or ingested pesticides can tax our livers and kidneys', Vapour uses organic, non-toxic ingredients where possible in their formulations.
Conscious Packaging + Production | Vapour Organics package their products in Forest Stewardship Council certified paper stock, printed with vegetable ink. They employ solar and wind energy for passive solar daylighting and wind-powered labs, office and warehouse.
Waterless Formulas | Their unique waterless formulations eliminate the need for harsh preservatives and conserve a precious resources at the same time.
Gluten + Nano Particle Free | Everything in their USDA approved lab is Gluten Free. All minerals and pigments Vapour use are cosmetic-grade particle size - much larger than nanoparticles - and stay on the surface of your skin.
