Environment vs Makeup

 In News

When you spend time getting ready in the morning or for a night out do you ever think where your makeup came from? Like where did your eyebrow powder or gel in it’s plastic casing start it’s life? Or where did your silky smooth foundation that promises flawless skin in it’s glass bottle come from? We forget that our favourite beauty products started their lives as individual ingredients.

Here’s the thing – many of our beauty products from foundations, to lipsticks and even to our evening face wash contain a major ingredient- palm oil. The annoying thing here is that these things can be made without palm oil, it is just cheaper and easier to make them with the destructive oil. Palm oil is derived from trees that are homes to so many animals and by destroying these trees we are destroying their homes. Some companies now use sustainable palm oil, which is when the oil is harvested responsibly and causes no harm to those living beings in the surrounding area. The only way to know if something is made by sustainable palm oil is to commit to reading the labels on the products you buy.

At Harley Treatment Clinic we want to make it very clear that we do care about and adore our environment. Our pigment that we use not only contains absolutely no palm oil, but is also cruelty free and vegan! We feel it is important- especially in today’s climate- that we use products that are the least harmful to not only animals, but to our plant too.

If you have any questions for us on the ingredients of our products please call one of our advisors today who will be more than happy to answer all of your questions.
