Imagine ending your beauty look every day with a soft dusting of a perfect powdered blush made of natural fruit pigments including pomegranates, berries and cherries. Imagine getting ready for a big date by putting on a cream blush made from luscious, all-natural ingredients like shea butter, Moroccan argan oil, and jojoba oil. It is the truth of using a raw and organic lipstick! Compared to an organic lipstick made from actual fruit (you have to try one!), organic and natural blush is one of the most stunning and fairy-like additions to your makeup kit.
While the natural and sustainable beauty trend has grown in success, so has the array of beautifully made sustainable blushes. Natural blush products come in the form of pressed paste, liquid and cream; each available in glittery and matt textures. A real natural blush is made using both the fresh and organic ingredients. Below are some of the most common natural ingredients used to produce organic blushes: real earth minerals: usually used in real blushes because of their color pigments and reflective / glittery properties. The most common natural minerals used are iron oxides, titanium dioxide, mica and silica.
Antioxidant Rich Fruit Pigments: made from the rich natural pigments of real fruit, these pigments lend their beautiful shade to certain natural blushes. Highly pigmented fruits (such as bananas, pomegranates, cherries, strawberries, etc.) are widely used for their vivid colours.
Butters & Oils: Used as a basis for cream and liquid blush. Cocoa butter, shea butter, jojoba oil, castor oil, sunflower oil and coconut oil are only a handful of the natural butters and oils used in organic blouses.
Waxes: Waxes such as beeswax and candelilla wax thicken and add a balm-like feel to cream and adhere to blush.
Powders: Tapioca starch, corn starch, rice flour, and rice starch are often used as a foundation or for oil production in some natural blush.
Each of these may be deemed the perfect natural and/or herbal flush. Most each of them has their own special characteristics to deliver. Pick the one that’s perfect for your needs until you know a little bit about them.
