A natural beauty...

Beauty products don’t have to be harsh and toxic to give great results... We have found some fab brands that are kind to your body and still look and smell amazing. Pink LOVES...................

An Australian company that is all Australian made, using a natural range of the highest quality ingredients all source from within Australia. Zazi Mineral Cosmetics boast an entire range of 100% natural mineral makeup and skin care, free from harsh ingredients, yet still offering the same great results, that owners Michael and Roz designed and continue to manufacture themselves. The range only includes the highest quality ingredients - no petrochemicals, no talc, no bismuth oxychloride, no fillers, no parabens, no unnatural preservatives or colours and no mineral oils. You will be amazed at the results and the excellence in quality of the entire Zazi Range.

They are the cult phenomenon of the nail industry and are fast becoming famous for their high fashion, 3 Free (non-toxic) nail lacquers. They contain no formaldehyde, toluene, and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP). The polish glides on the nail smooth and evenly, leaving a nice rich colour that lasts. Proving that you don’t need to use toxic chemicals to create an equally, if not better result.

This small Brooklyn-based company is only just over a year old. Everything owner and founder Adina makes is completely natural and is made up of ingredients that you can find at the organic green market. Sprout makes their products from scratch using only whole, high-potency ingredients. They only stick with absolutely essential ingredients and don’t add a bunch of extra stuff. That’s why everything they sell only has 5 ingredients or less. And they still make you look amazing and smell pretty. They don’t water it down with cheap synthetics or exotic fillers. Sprout Wellness supports sustainable agriculture by buying only from organic, Fair Trade, or small-farm sources.

Here is a recipe that Sprout has for their Sugar Body Scrub that you can make at home...
        1 cup organic demerara sugar (or any other coarse sugar will work)
        1-2 tsp organic unrefined coconut oil
        2 tsp organic shredded coconut
Mix shredded coconut and sugar in a small bowl, stir until blended. Heat coconut oil in a small pot just until melted. Pour coconut oil over sugar and shredded coconut, you'll notice it liquefies some of the sugar. With a fork or spoon, stir oil into the sugar mixture. It will start to spread. Continue until the sugar is all one consistency.
To use: Apply a small amount to areas you want to exfoliate and moisturise.

Dr. Bronner’s
Established in 1948 by third generation soap master, Emanuel Bronner. Now managed by 4th and 5th generations of the Bronner family who have continued making the Dr. Bronner’s products with care and dignity.
Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap is an all-around good soap for the shower, and some claim is that the Pure Castile Liquid soaps can even be used as shampoo, and as toothpaste! Sounds intreging, however we might just stick to using it as body soap for the shower.

Love, Pink Ink X
