Look Pretty, Save the Planet: Axiology

Photo: Bette Walker

 I recently discovered a new lipstick line, Axiology, and I love, love, love everything about it.  The formula couldn’t be more Clean or pure.  Ingredients like avocado and mango butters moisturize and protect; this lipstick has never left my lips feeling desperately dry and the product just glides on when I apply it.  This is a lipstick-girl’s lipstick line.  Axiology’s 100% natural colors are so unique and very densely saturated, and they wear incredibly well hour after hour.  And, the beautiful packaging?  It’s ethically sourced from recycled materials in Bali.  To top it all off, Axiology is Vegan, never tests on animals and donates 6% of their profits to The Orangutan Foundation.

What’s missing?  Lead and other heavy metals, synthetic colors, parabens, and other nasty chemicals.  Also missing is palm oil, which is causing massive deforestation in Indonesia and Borneo and the extinction of the orangutan, Sumatran tiger and the rhinoceros.   (I personally avoid products that contain Palm Oil.)

Ingredients: Organic Candelilla Wax, Organic Avocado Oil, Organic Castor Oil, Organic Mango Butter, Organic Avocado Butter, Organic Grape Seed Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Sweet Orange Oil; May Contain: Iron Oxide, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Manganese Violet.
