If you have been following my blog/beauty posts for awhile now, you know how important clean, organic skin care & makeup lines are too me. I want to show my followers the best local and organic products possible. I found a company here in Manitoba called UniKa Cosmetics to demonstrate just that! Here is a blurb on what UniKa is all about:
Welcome to UniKa Cosmetics.
We select the best ingredients available to make sure that our products will perform and give you the best results possible. Make sure that you read our complete list of ingredients for each product and that you also notice what we don’t use!
No-Boron-nitride… We do not use boron-nitride in our make up. Even though some cosmetic companies call themselves “natural”, they are still using this synthetic inorganic compound to give their products better adhesion and a flawless feel. Well, you know what? You can achieve the same feel naturally, without the need for such chemicals.
And last but not least, our products are not tested on animals and we make sure we buy from suppliers that have the same policy.
Remember, our line has been and will always be created with your beauty and well-being in mind.
A companies mission statement is super important to me, I think it shows what they are really all about how the quality of their finished products. Listen.. as a former MAC and Makeup Forever girl I need makeup that FEELS like real, chemically laden, last all day kind of stuff! Here is my review on the products from UniKa I’ve tried thus far!
Organic Liquid Eyeliner – With the creamy, glide on consistency it is perfect for cat eye looks as the brush is a perfect point that doesn’t get clumpy! – This was my fav of the whole line.
Organic Mascara – The huge, bouncy football shaped brush helps each lash to be coated evenly without clumps or flakes ( the worst when looking for a good mascara! ). Also this mascara contains beeswax! – which promotes hair growth and moisturizes – BONUS
Thick, Organic Handcream- Lemongrass –
The Lemongrass is super spa like and soothing!
• Prevents Skin Damage from Sun: It is extremely high in vitamin E, which is essential for preventing damage to skin cells by ultraviolet light or UVA from the sun. It is also rich in vitamins A, C and D and healthy carotenoids and waxes, which form a protective barrier on the skin.
• Prevents Premature Aging Signs: The antioxidants in sunflower oil lower the risk of developing premature signs of aging since it fights free radical.
• Good for Dry & Dehydrated Skin
BUTYROSPMERMUM PARKII (SHEA) BUTTER: Shea butter’s phenolics have anti-aging benefits and properties similar to green tea. It contains five essential fatty acids, vitamins E and D, allantoin (good for healing skin irritations), and vitamin A. This combination of ingredients helps neutralize free radical damage, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and fading age spots, as well as stimulating collagen production.
You can find ALL of these products and many more from their whole Organic, earth and animal conscious line at UniKa Cosmetics website.
