Let’s be real…. It’s so important to nourish and protect our skin and the environment. This is why we’ve gone to great lengths to make sure our cosmetics and skincare DO NOT contain any harsh chemicals or use excess unnecessary packaging.

At Adorn we believe that women should not have to sacrifice the environment or potentially their health in the name of beauty. What we put on our body is as just as important as to what we put into it. Our skin is our largest organ, and it needs oxygen for good health. Conventional make-up often uses a variety of chemicals and comedogenic ingredients that can clog the pores and impede the skin’s ability to absorb oxygen. As a result, when this chemical-laden make-up is applied consistently, the skin over time can suffer.
By using naturally occurring minerals, organic extracts and pigments, and by keeping our products free from fillers such as Talc, preservatives such as Parabens, Gluten and harmful chemicals, Adorn has created an eco-luxe, toxin free make-up range that not only works in synergy with your skin, but also feels weightless, looks flawless and lasts all day!
Silicone emollients are occlusive - that is they coat and sit on the skin, trapping anything beneath it, and do not allow the skin to breathe (much like plastic wrap would do). Recent studies have indicated that prolonged exposure of the skin to sweat, by occlusion, causes skin irritation. They are also non-biodegradable, causing negative environmental impact
To help reduce landfill and minimise our carbon footprint we DO NOT use 'outer boxes' to package our products and we encourage our customers to re-use their pots and help support our endeavours to reduce landfill and what's more, refills SAVE YOU Money!
Our eco-luxe cosmetics have been created with busy women in mind and do not require the time or effort of some of the more conventional cosmetics on the market to apply. Our loose mineral products are extremely popular as they are both water and sweat resistant which means little to NO need for touch-ups during the day.
Adorn also supports its busy customers by allowing you to view application tutorials via our website under Tutorials or by looking at our YouTube Channel – Adorn Mineral Cosmetics, as well as providing a unique online Colour Matching Service to assist with shade selection.
The term Nano Particle is used in reference to a small particle with all three dimensions less than 100 nanometres (.1 micron) that may penetrate the skins surface layers. The ingredients that are often in question in relation to Nanotechnology are Kaolin (Clay), Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide and Mica. Adorn does NOT use ingredients with a particle size less than .1 micron and therefore DOES NOT fit within the guidelines of using nanotechnology.
ALL ADORN INGREDIENTS ARE OBTAINED FROM SUSTAINABLE SOURCES
- Glycerol Monosterate – Coconut or Sunflower oil
- Natural Cetyl Alcohol – Coconut oil
- Vitamin E – Sunflower oil or Soybean
- Glycerin – Certified Organic Soya or Maze. It is now NOP certified and therefore must only come from sustainable sources and as such we are given absolute assurance no palm is used in the making of our Glycerine.
- Cetearyl Glucoside – Corn or coconut derived emulsifier. It helps bind ingredients together and maintain their consistency and stability.
- Cetearyl / Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol – Is made by heating coconut oil with a strong base (for example lye - sodium hydroxide).
- Polyglyceryl Oleate – Derived from Coconuts and/or Soybean and is an emulsifier used to make oil and water soluble together.
- Tocopherol – Vitamin E
- Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride – Is Coconut Oil that has had its solid fat components removed by fractional distillation.
- Propylene Glycol – Vegetable propylene glycol is derived from glycerine and yeast which is in turn derived from soybeans or canola seeds.
- Cetyl Alcohol – See Cetearyl Alcohol
- Stearic Acid – Cocoa or Shea butter and Coconut oil
Adorn does not use any animal ingredients or animal by-products.
Often the inclusion of Bismuth Oxychloride in mineral make-up is the reason women occasionally experience skin irritation when using other brands, particularly in hot weather. Bismuth Oxychloride is actually a by-product of refined lead and copper and has a pearlescent look to increase luminosity in mineral make-up. Some mineral make-up brands use this as it is a cheap filler or bulking ingredient. Sufferers of acne and rosacea will find that using products containing this ingredient may irritate their skin. Adorn Cosmetics DOES NOT ever contain Bismuth Oxychloride.
Fragrance on a label can indicate (unless it is a preservative) the presence of up to four thousand separate ingredients, many toxic or carcinogenic. Symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, allergic rashes, skin discoloration, violent coughing, vomiting, and skin irritation. Fragrances can affect the central nervous system, causing depression, hyperactivity, and irritability.
Parabens are a group of cosmetics preservatives, including butylparaben, propylparaben, methylparaben, and ethylparaben. Some parabens are classified as endocrine disruptors because they mimic oestrogen in the body. Higher oestrogen exposure has been thought to be linked to higher risk of breast cancer.
Gluten is a special type of protein that is commonly found in rye, wheat, and barley. Gluten free products have increased in demand significantly. Signs of gluten sensitivity may include: rash, fatigue, depression, endometriosis, and reflux.
