Formaldehyde-releasing preservatives (FRPs) are found in many personal care products. These preservatives help prevent bacteria from growing in water-based products and can be absorbed through the skin. Brands use these types of preservatives because they are low-cost and easily accessible.
Parabens easily penetrate the skin and are the most widely used preservative in cosmetics. Parabens can also be used as fragrance components -- which is why you should stick to fragrance-free or naturally scented products.
High levels or long exposure to BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) has been shown to interfere with normal reproductive system development and thyroid hormone levels. I try to stay away from BHA's at all cost!
These synthetic chemicals are frequently contaminated with 1-4-dioxane, which Congress considers a probable human carcinogen. Long-term exposure in small doses has not been studied by labs and the results are unknown.
SLS has been shown to cause or contribute to skin irritation, disruption of the skin’s natural barrier function, and oil balance. This is commonly found in drug store foundations and moisturizers.
The whole idea behind Aisling Organics is that women and men would not have to sacrifice health over beauty or beauty over health. I missed weeks and weeks from school because the products I was putting on my face (foundation, lip gloss, lipsticks) were causing me to be nauseous and have painful migraines.
I ran to the drugstores, major retailers, and online brands to find clean makeup that worked and fell short. Nothing would last on my face, everything was so expensive, or I would found out I was being fooled into using toxic products by organic-looking packaging.
That’s why I created Aisling Organics! A line of vegan, cruelty-free, botanically based makeup that WORKS, is multi-purpose and affordable.
This article is where things started to change! When I first launched Aisling Organics, people said to me "this will NEVER work." "People don't care what they put into their bodies or organic makeup".
After my Forbes feature, I received an outpour of love and support from my friends and family and people started taking notice of the changes I was making in the cosmetics industry.
We are the only organic brand on the internet that trusts our products enough to EAT THEM. Yes, I've eaten a lipstick before for proof.
Since the Forbes feature, Aisling Organics has built a community of thousands of individuals to only put the purest ingredients on their skin to promote optimal health.
The antioxidant-packed Tinted Lip Oils were formulated to deliver intense hydration. Made with seven oils extracted from the purest botanicals, including Jojoba, Coconut, and Olive Fruit Oil, the blend pinpoints the dry parts of your lips and delivers hydration where it needs.
Cabo is a light barbie pink, Bora Bora is a mauve nude, Athens is a coral nude, Ibiza is a mauve berry, Barcelona is a cranberry, and Milan is a shimmery brown plum.
I still talk to my customers every day about their fears and experiences of ingesting toxic chemicals from their cosmetics.
“I decided to purchase the entire Tinted Lip Oil Collection after talking with Krysta about the importance of putting non-toxic ingredients on my skin and ESPECIALLY my lips. Since then, I only allow my children to use Aisling Organics because the long-term health effects of conventional makeup are unknown. - Maggie R. Verified Customer”
“I just love the texture and the way these lip oils feel and looks. Fantastic product! I love the presentation and packaging also." - Bett R. Verified Customer”
“This lip color is the best lip product I have ever used! My lips were softer and smoother after one use. Absolutely no stickiness! Love love love." - Suzanne D. Verified Customer”
NEVER fear ingesting harmful ingredients that could make you sick or have long-term health effects. Our Tinted Lip Oils have the hydration of a lip mask and the color payoff of a liquid lipstick.
