Vegan Ingredients I Use

The following is a list of my favorite ingredients (in no particular order). 

For lip products, body butter ect:

  • Mango Butter
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Shea Butter
  • Safflower Oil
  • Fragrance and Flavor Oils
  • Candellila Wax
  • Vitamin E
Candellila Wax: This is a great vegan substitute for beeswax. It isn't as soft as beeswax though so when using it you have to use more mango butter (or something similar) to soften it up. 

Safflower Oil: I love using this oil. It has a very light flavor and color so it softens up my products without changing the scent or color. Its also a very healthy oil option for cooking with! This photo link is the exact safflower oil I use. I think it is a great product at a great price. On the skin: safflower oil softens and hydrates skin reducing the appearance of wrinkles. I use this in my body butter and lip stick. Safflower oil is great for dry skin and can help heal skin conditions and inflammation. 

Mango Butter: I love mango butter because it is so soft and great for healing skin. I use it my body butter to make skin soft and youthful. 

Cocoa Butter: This butter smells super yummy. Great for removing scars. 

Shea Butter: I buy unrefined Shea butter for my recipes because it is full of vitamins and nutrients. It smells a bit funky compared to refined butter but its totally worth it for healthier skin. In my body butter I add a little extra fragrance to cover up the smell. Shea butter restores skin elasticity and softens and moisturizes skin. 

My body butter is awesome and will be available soon at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/AdorBeautySupplies

Vitamin E: I use vitamin E in all my creamy products. Its great for keeping things fresh and for its healing properties. 

Dry Ingredients for Eyeshadow, Bronzer, Bath Salt, ect:
  • Titanium Dioxide
  • Magnesium Stearate (vegetable derived)
  • Sericite
  • Colored Micas
  • Iron Oxide
  • Cosmetic Glitter
  • Epsom Salt
  • Pacific Sea Salt
  • Rice Powder
  • Baking Soda 
  • Kaolin Clay
Titanium Dioxide: Adds adhesion and SPF protection. 

Magnesium Stearate: I only use Magnesium stearate that is vege derived. It is used for adhesion. 

Sericite: Adds adhesion and shine and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. 

Colored Micas: Pretty and shiny. Used in everything I add color and shimmer to. 

Iron Oxide: For color. 

Epsom and Pacific Sea Salt: My bath salt is a blend of these two salts. Soothes sore muscles and relieves stress. 
Soon you will be able to buy 16 oz. jars or samples of my bath salt on etsy!

My bath salt.

Rice Powder: Substitute for talc which can cause skin irritation for some people. Has a silky texture.

Baking Powder: I use this in bath salt to soften skin. 

Kaolin Clay: I use this in my mineral make up for adhesion, and better slip. Its great for sensitive skin. 

I'm sure there are more ingredients I am forgetting but those are the main ones.
