With an ever increasing concern towards our planet, more and more of us are seeking alternatives to help reduce our environmental impact. Whether that be through our plastic use, our meat and dairy intake or our every day choices. At this stage it’s up to conglomerates to really turn things around but when it comes to the individual, every little makes an impact.
One way is to opt to use and buy into brands with a conscience, beauty brands in particular are making the conscious choice to become vegan, cruelty free and adapt their packaging.
One brand that has a deep concern for the environment and endangered species is Chantecaille Beauté. Since 1997, the brand has supported causes for endangered species such as, wolves, gorillas, coral reefs, tigers, butterflies and sea turtles. Chantecaille is a luxurious brand that is committed to creating revolutionary skincare, cosmetics and fragrances, together with reaching out through their products, to shine a spot-light on global issues.
Through their collections the brand is currently supporting a variety of causes from African and Asian elephants that are facing extinction to climate change. Chantecaille’s newest collection is a limited edition range of cream blushes and lipsticks along with the return of a cult-bronzer.
The Summer 19 Lip Veil is not only good for supporting endangered Asian elephants; it is also good for your lips. Organic Baobab oil, Wild Mango butter and Argan oil combine to leave your lips with a wash of colour that feels creamy, weightless and hydrating. Available in three limited-edition shades in a magnetic-click case, this revolutionary lipstick is sure to leave your lips nourished and gleaming.
Aqua Blush is packaged in a mini pot that is ideal for travelling and the product itself is a gel formula that is more than half water, meaning your skin is left hydrated and refreshed. Although sheer the blushes are build-able to give just the right pop of colour. The formula melts onto skin and is perfect for a dewy summer glow.
A cult favourite bronzer has returned as part of the collection and it is back permanently. Available in two shades and created using modern pearl technology which yields an innovative gel-powder formula, this bronzer glides onto skin. A dusting of the bronzer leaves skin with a beautiful glow and its soft aerated texture blurs, perfects and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, with a second skin feel.
The Summer 19 collection is like all of Chantecaille’s products, cruelty free and also free of Phthalates, Sulphate Detergents, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Palm Oil, Synthetic Colors, Synthetic Fragrances and GMOs (the nasty stuff).
