Sample with Confidence!
Adorn eliminates the worry of purchasing online and saves you from the overwhelming hassle of purchasing in-store.
We understand concerns around trying new products and selecting the right colour. Adorn's super popular eco-luxe samples and sample boxes guarantee you will purchase the right product for you.
Also considering 70% of cosmetics globally DO NOT get finished, our sample program protects the environment by ensuring customers have the opportunity to trial cosmetics first, before committing to a full sized, possibly unsuitable product that ends up in landfill!
SAVE with Eco-Luxe Refills
Leading the way in reducing landfill and minimising carbon footprint, we eagerly encourage our customers to recycle their beautiful Adorn pots by purchasing our popular eco-luxe refills.
Proudly the first cosmetics brand to offer an environmentally friendly refill program, our refills help SAVE the environment and SAVE YOU money at the same time!
Commitment to our beautiful planet
From its very beginning, Adorn Cosmetics has led the way innovating sustainable initiatives to reduce the cosmetic industry's carbon footprint and protect our beautiful planet. It’s only when cosmetic containers are recycled, and packaging is produced in a sustainable manner that a real difference is made for the environment.
Our eco-luxe cosmetics do not come with 'outer' boxes. We proudly stand by our environment by eliminating excess packaging that simply ends up in the bin and landfill.
To ensure the safe arrival of our beautiful, eco-luxe products, we lovingly wrap them with an eco-friendly, biodegradable paper protective material made from SFI/Recycled material. A fantastic alternative to environmentally harmful plastic bubble wrap and foam peanuts.
CERTIFIED CRUELTY FREE & VEGAN
We care about animals and believe they should never suffer for our beauty.
You can be comforted knowing that Adorn’s products are kind to animals, and do not use any animal ingredients or animal by-products. In fact Adorn is Choose Cruelty Free certified and registered with The Vegan Society.
Adorn has also gone the extra lengths to back our beauty claims, by securing Toxic Free and Palm Oil Free certifications.
Proudly Australian Made & Owned
Adorn is proudly an Australian owned company, sourcing where possible its minerals & organic ingredients directly from the Australian earth. We only deal with the largest & most reputable manufacturers of pigments, and these are always sourced FIRST from within Australia.
In the rare event that a pigment or pigments required to produce a product are not available within Australia we will source them from abroad. In keeping with our ethos we do not purchase from countries such as India that are associated with child labour.
LONG LASTING FLAWLESS FINISH
Our eco-luxe cosmetics have been created with busy women in mind and don't require the time or effort to apply compared to conventional cosmetics.
Our loose, pure mineral products are highly pigmented, and are both water and sweat resistant which means little to NO need for touch-ups, resulting in a perfect, flawless finish that lasts All. Day. Long.
Many of our products are also multipurpose, which makes looking good simple. Say hello to effortless beauty.
LIGHTWEIGHT Gentle Formulations
Adorn Cosmetics can actually be healthier for your skin than wearing no makeup at all. Our lightweight formulations let your skin breathe, whilst providing a protective barrier against environmental stressors and daily dirt and grime.
Conventional makeup often uses a variety of chemicals and comedogenic ingredients that can clog the pores and impede the skin’s ability to absorb oxygen.
Our nourishing, natural and organic cosmetics work in synergy with your skin, to reveal a healthier and more luminous complexion.
NO BISMUTH OXYCHLORIDE OR FILLERS
By keeping our products completely free from fillers such as Talc, Rice Powder, Clay or Bismuth Oxychloride, Adorn is a certified toxin free range that is safe for even the most sensitive of skin.
Bismuth Oxychloride is a by-product of refined lead and copper with a pearlescent look to increase luminosity. It is often used as a cheap filler/bulking agent in some mineral make-up, which can cause skin irritation, inflammation and itching, especially for acne and rosacea sufferers.
NO Parabens & Petrochemicals
Parabens are a group of cosmetic 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 reported as link to higher risk of breast cancer.
The World Health Organisation classifies untreated or mildly treated mineral oils as carcinogenic to humans; highly refined oils are classified as Group 3, meaning they are not suspected to be carcinogenic but available information is not sufficient to classify them as harmless.
NO ARTIFICIAL FRAGRANCE OR COLOURS
Fragrance (unless a natural preservative) can contain up to 4000 separate ingredients, many toxic or carcinogenic. Symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, allergic rashes, skin discolouration, violent coughing, vomiting, skin irritation; and can also affect the central nervous system, causing depression, hyperactivity, and irritability.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) are inexpensive foaming agents found in many beauty products and industrial cleaning agents such as engine degreaser. Unfortunately many products labelled as ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ still contain sulfates.
The Australian Government Department of Health reports slight to severe adverse eye and skin reactions with certain percentages of SLS and SLES. While generally considered safe to use at 1%, other studies indicate the amount absorbed by the bloodstream over time results in higher residual levels in the body.
Some products containing SLS and SLES have also been found to contain traces of a contaminant called Dioxane after manufacturing, which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency classifies as a possible human carcinogen.
Nano Particle Free
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 skin’s surface layers.
The ingredients often in question are Kaolin (Clay), Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide and Mica. Adorn does NOT use ingredients with a particle size less than .1 micron and is therefore Nano Particle free.
Gluten free products have significantly increased in demand. Gluten is a special type of protein commonly found in rye, wheat, and barley. Signs of gluten sensitivity may include: rash, fatigue, depression, endometriosis, and reflux.
