UNICA COSMETICS - VEGGIE MANIA - Dark Pink Lip Balm Coloured Only From Real Vegetables!
VEGGIE-MANIA Dark Pink Tinted Lip Balm - coloured only from real vegetable!
For 81 per cent of women in Europe and America, lipstick and lip gloss are make-up bag must haves. Over a lifetime you will potentially swallow a kilogram (2lb) of lipstick, that is, if you manage to work your way through five each year between the ages of 16 and 60. Did you know that lipstick may contain a variety of chemicals that have demonstrated some evidence of causing cancer in studies on experimental animals? These include: artificial colours, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), synthetic fragrance, plasticizers, talc, Teflon (yes, the substance used to coat non-stick pans) and formaldehyde.Suddenly a slick of lipstick seems a lot less innocuous.
(Dawn Mellowship, Toxic Beauty, 2009, p.7)
While other cosmetics use synthetic dyes or minerals, Veggie-Mania is 100% natural and uniquely coloured with totally natural pigments extracted from the Purple Carrot (see Star Ingredients below). It's intense dark pink/purplish colour is due to the high concentration in anthocyans, the natural compounds found in vegetables, which have been identified as strong antioxidants. They neutralize the free scavengers produced in the skin cells which are known to cause skin aging. Veggie-mania lip balm will not colour your lips as strongly as a lipstick does, but it will give you a super healthy, radiant sheen full of skin nutrients and antioxidants. And, you can also use it as a blusher! In Veggie-Mania you will find the same soothing, moisturizing and protecting blend of pure oils and butters of Unica lip balms, plus you will be applying all the healthy nutrients of the vegetable directly on your skin, because all the antioxidants and vitamins are in the actual colour pigments! Veggie-Mania lip balm is definitely one of my favourite products and my make-up bag must-have. You'll never find me without it. Suitable for Vegans. Store in a cool place away from direct sunlight.
Twas not my lips you kissed but my soul.
