The Beauty Archive is an exclusive line of beauty care products and multi-tasking makeup made from organically derived ingredients that your lips and skin will love.
Our products are 100 % vegan, cruelty-free, GMO-free and free of nanoparticles, parabens and fragrance. Each product is carefully crafted in small batches and individually poured by hand. Due to the freshness of our organic lippies we only carry small quantities of each lip color in stock at a time. Working with mineral pigments, it takes precision and time to get a correct shade match between batches. Since each product is made by hand colors may vary ever so slightly from batch to batch. We see this as part of the beautiful art of making sustainable cosmetics.
We value our customers trust the highest and aim for total transparency throughout our company. For a full disclosure and since we do not use any animal derived pigments, we would not have been able to make some of our lip colors without the use of minimal synthetic pigment. We continously strive for improvement and as the market develops, we will replace any synthetic pigment as soon as we find its natural and vegan equivalent. We can assure you that each of our pigments are approved as safe colourants in cosmetics and meet the purity criteria and characteristics set by EC Directive 95/45.
The Beauty Archive is a member of the Beauty without Bunnies program and are PETA certified vegan and cruelty-free.
GRAPE SEED OIL*
Organic cold pressed grape seed oil is a key ingredient in our lip creams. Grape seed oil contains a lot of the essential Omega-6 fatty acid which helps strengthen the skin barrier and prevents lips from drying. Grape seed oil also acts as a protective antioxidant thanks to its content of polyphenols and vitamin E.
CASTOR SEED OIL*
Castor seed oil has a thick, viscous texture with a pretty sheen to it which makes it a popular ingredient in all our lip products. Due to its composition it takes time to sink in to the skin and therefore provides a great protection against wind and weather. Our castor seed oil helps the other ingredients work well together and it leaves a super smooth and non-sticky feeling on the lips.
Candelilla wax is a hard and stabilizing wax and an excellent vegan alternative to beeswax. We love the Candelilla wax in our products for its moisturizing and protecting properties. The wax provides a great texture in our lip creams and gives the product a good glide and smoothness.
Carnauba wax is a luxurious vegan wax that adds stability, consistency and shine to our lippies. The wax is produced from the leaves of the Brazilian carnauba palm tree. The leaves are gradually harvested and the wax is taken care of and filtered. This method allows the palm trees to grow year after year instead of being felled for harvest. Our carnauba wax is certified organic which means that it is completely free of chemical pesticides.
The organic coconut oil is magic, in so many ways. The cold pressing of the coconut pulp effectively helps preserve the coconut oil’s essential fatty acids, heat-sensitive vitamins and antioxidants. This method also helps retain the lovely mild coconut aroma. Coconut oil has disinfecting and antimicrobial properties as well as great moisturizing effects and gives our products a smooth creamy texture and feel.
Jojoba oil has an overall luxurious feel and is unique in the way that it has a waxy substance similar to the sebum produced in human skin glands. Jojoba oil deeply moisturizes, improves the protective barrier and prevents lips from dehydration. It is also rich in vitamin A, vitamin D and natural antioxidants and is a highly sustainable oil, which means that it does not need preservatives.
COCOA SEED BUTTER*
Cocoa seed butter is an excellent emollient and gives a soft and creamy texture and glide to our lip products and is soothing on dry lips. It is rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants which helps strengthen and increase skin elasticity. Even though our cocoa butter is of food quality and eatable we prefer to put it on our lips.♥
Natural Vitamin E is an efficient antioxidant and extends the shelf life for our products. It works great in combination with other vegetable oils and prevents them from farther oxidizing. Our Vitamin E is derived from organic and GMO free soy, diluted in organic sunflower oil*. Natural Vitamin E has a mixture of the four sorts of tocopherols; alfa, beta, gamma and delta. This gives our products great skin caring properties by moisturizing and protecting the skin cells from harmful free radicals and natural sunlight.
