FAQ'S

ARE ADORN PRODUCTS ORGANIC?

Adorn products predominantly made from loose minerals cannot be considered organic since loose minerals are ‘inorganic’ which means ‘inert’ or in other words, contains no living organisms and therefore not considered organic. Minerals or inorganic ingredients are however considered just as natural as organic ingredients as they are naturally occurring. Products in the Adorn range are either 100% mineral if they are loose minerals, or for cream and liquid products the main ingredient composition is mineral with some certified organic plant ingredients added. Our Liquid Eye liner, Style Icon Lip Sticks and Glosses however contain more organic ingredients than minerals and are in fact over 70% organic.

DOES ADORN PROVIDE SAMPLES?

Eco-luxe sample pots are available for most of the Adorn range and are located for purchase under each product category and on the Sample Page. Samples are an extremely popular way (in fact we are proudly one of the only companies in the world to offer colour cosmetics in samples) for our customers to try the range before committing to a full sized item. This way you can confidently know you have selected a product that is right for YOU!

MY PROMOCODE OR OFFER IS NOT WORKING - WHAT SHOULD I DO?

You must be registered and logged in to use a Promocode. Promocodes can only be used once and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers. They must not contain any spaces and some products may be excluded. If you are experiencing any problems please contact customer service on +61 3 9808 4422.

WHAT IF I HAVE TOO MUCH SHINE AFTER APPLYING THE LOOSE MINERAL FOUNDATION?

Layering too thickly or pressing into the skin with the wrong brush can separate minerals. Avoid this by applying thin layers of Adorn's mineral makeup in either downward strokes or with a pressing motion using our flat top Kabuki Brush. It can also help to spritz with Adorn's Organic Rose water, or for more oilier skin types try lightly dusting over your mineral makeup with our Perfect Finish Matte Setting Mineral Powder.

MY LOOSE MINERAL FOUNDATION IS THE WRONG COLOUR?

It was probably chosen in poor lighting or due to season change your skin may be lighter or darker now. The correct shade should disappear and blend perfectly. Try matching your mineral foundation to your décolletage/chest area in the warmer months and your jawline in the cooler months.

WHAT IF MY SKIN LOOKS OILY OR DRY?

Adorn offers 3 foundation types to cater for different skin types or skin conditions. These are Liquid, Hydrating Cream, and the Loose. If your skin looks either oily or dry it may be that you are using a foundation type not suitable or you may be applying too much of the product. Try using less and make sure you use our flat top vegan Kabuki Brush for a more flawless finish. You may even like to first try applying our cold pressed Rosehip oil to correct dry looking skin, or for oily skins try applying our Perfect Finish Matte Setting Powder over the top.

WHAT INGREDIENTS PROVIDE THE SPF IN OUR FOUNDATIONS?

The SPF20+ is provided in the Loose Mineral Foundation and this protection comes naturally from the Titanium Dioxide (non-nano) and Zinc Oxides.

CAN I APPLY THE LOOSE MINERAL FOUNDATION AROUND MY EYES?

It is recommended to apply only a very light dusting of the loose mineral foundation (for the SPF benefits) over the delicate eye area. Adorn's Concealers are best for coverage around the eye area.

DOES ADORN USE TALC AND WHY IS IT NOT GOOD FOR USE?

Talc is considered a mineral, produced by the mining of talc rocks and then processed by crushing, drying and milling. Processing eliminates a number of trace minerals from the talc, but does not separate minute fibres which are very similar to asbestos. Talc itself is toxic and a known carcinogen. Adorn's mineral makeup NEVER contains talc.

WHAT ARE PARABENS AND WHY WON'T ADORN USE THEM?

Parabens are preservatives which are commonly used in products such as soap, shampoo, deodorant and makeup. There's accumulating evidence questioning the safety of Parabens as these have been found in breast tumour samples - although its link to the development of cancer is disputed. Despite the link being unproven the potential is sufficient enough for ADORN to avoid the use of Parabens. Instead we use plant based ingredients to best preserve our range.

WHY WON'T ADORN USE BISMUTH OXYCHLORIDE IN ITS FORMULATIONS?

If you have experienced skin irritation when using mineral makeup in the past, particularly in hot weather, and don't know why..... the inclusion of Bismuth Oxychloride in some brands of mineral makeup is the reason. Bismuth Oxychloride is actually a by-product of refined lead and copper. It has a pearlescent look to increase luminosity in mineral makeup formulations and is used as a cheap filler. Many people, including sufferers of acne and rosacea will find that using products containing this ingredient will irritate their skin.

WILL ADORN'S FOUNDATIONS CLOG MY PORES?

The inert minerals we use in our mineral makeup cannot support bacteria and therefore all loose mineral products are NON-comedogenic, meaning they do not clog the pores.
