100% pure makeup made from food

Why 100% pure cosmetics are so important for your health

We all want to present our most healthy, authentic selves every day and that starts with putting 100% pure ingredients in our saucepans – and on our skin.

A study on healthy eating trends around the world reveals around 75 per cent of people now believe they “are what they eat” and almost 80 per cent are actively using foods to forestall health issues and medical conditions.

At luk beautifood we understand that you want to look after your body and achieve optimal wellbeing by eating wholesome food and using safe, organic skincare products – so why not apply the same philosophy to your makeup?

In fact, it is the very reason I developed Lip Nourish lipsticks – to pack a nutritional punch using all-natural ingredients. I wanted to harness the benefits of healing foods, such as avocados, seeds and fruits.

These ‘superfoods’ contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatories are scientifically proven to calm skin issues naturally.

This is particularly important as science tells us skin is five to 10 times more absorbent on the face (and scalp) than most other areas of the body.

And consider this: research indicates the cumulative effects of individual (non-carcinogenic) chemicals you absorb could conspire to produce carcinogenic synergies.

So, by aiming for 100% pure cosmetics, packed with plant-based products, you will be ensuring your entire system remains free of potentially damaging poisons that could wreak havoc with your health.

Want totally clean makeup? Here’s how to pick it

It can be hugely time-consuming wading through beauty forums and websites to compare notes and pick the purest and most effective products.

Take a look at Etsy under the title ‘chemical-free’ and you will find more than 600 skincare and over 400 makeup offerings claiming to be full of non-toxic substances. But who can you trust?

To make it easy for you to find chemical-free makeup to complement your lipstick, I’ve done the research for you. Well actually, I did the research for me because I was looking for 100% pure cosmetics I could trust.

I use the 100% Pure brand of plant-pigmented makeup from America. It is one of the only makeup brands in the world coloured from the antioxidant-rich pigments of fruits and vegetables.

When is a product 100% pure?

Look out for standard certifications under the names Cosmos (an international standard for organic and natural cosmetics), Organic Food Chain, Nature and NSF (US tick for all-natural products).

If you’re wondering which common skincare products don’t quite live up to their promise of being ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ you can find out here.

Many of the big international brands have started their own lines of ‘natural’ mineral makeups –but you may have to do your homework to ensure every ingredient is free of harmful contaminants that could irritate skin, interfere with hormones or even trigger cancer.

Happily, help is at hand if you download the Think Dirty app which rates personal and beauty products 1-10, with 10 being the worst ranking.

Sensitive skin?

If you suffer from very sensitive skin then healthy makeup alternatives are even more important.

The health of our skin cells is directly influenced by what nutrients are available to them. So slathering on chemical-laden cosmetics and lotions is never a good idea.

If you are searching for a low maintenance, fresh-faced appearance that follows the ‘less is more’ philosophy, stick to makeup that avoids chemical preservatives that can inflame sensitive skin. 100% Pure cosmetics use natural preservatives such as anti-bacterial herbs.

Real ingredients include Japanese honeysuckle, thyme, oregano, rosemary and lavender in a potent concentration of vitamins, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories that settle sensitive skin.

So, beauty and skincare essentials from 100% Pure and from course luk beautifood, have got your covered from top to toe to achieve a youthful, glowing complexion, naturally!

WHY IS 100% PURE SO GOOD?

Truly 100% Pure is health food for your skin! There are absolutely no synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances or colours, no chemical preservatives, or toxins and the products are gluten free and suitable for vegetarians, some products are vegan too! It is one of the only makeup brands in the world coloured 100% from the antioxidant rich pigments of fruits and vegetables.

As much as 60% of topical skin-care products are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream,” says Dr. Nancy Lonsdorf.  “They should be consumed with the same prudence that we use to choose our breakfast cereal.” With this in mind, you can be at peace knowing that the 100% Pure products you are applying are 100% safe and 100% perfect for sensitive skin types.

MADE FROM FOOD GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT

NAIL POLISHES

Not only are the 100% Pure 10-free, natural nail polishes much better for your health than most conventional brands but they look stunningly beautiful on! The colours are strong and vibrant with a smooth, creamy consistency that glides on and dries quickly to a high long-lasting shine. One of the best parts is that one coat is all you need for a full strength colour.

WHO LOVES 100% PURE?

Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, Eva Mendez, Madonna and Jennifer Aniston are just some of the international celebrities who swear by the 100% Fruit Pigmented range and it’s easy to see why this forward-thinking brand is such a worldwide sensation.

The pure range of colour cosmetics is particularly famous for their Black Tea Mascara (being a global best seller). Here’s what one of our darling customers Maggie Ball had to say about this wunderprod:

“I love this mascara. It’s so beautifully packaged, and goes on like a dream – no clumping at all. The end result is very natural – thickens and darkens my lashes without looking over-done or fake. The mascara lasts and lasts and doesn’t rub off, and washes off with a little cleanser at the end of the day. Best of all it’s not the slightest bit irritating for my sensitive eyes – no rubbing or itching like most other mascaras for me. I don’t think I’ll ever use anything else!”

ARE 100% PURE COSMETICS SUITABLE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN?

Because 100% Pure cosmetics do not contain chemical preservatives, synthetic dyes or artificial fragrances that can irritate the skin, they are perfect for sensitive skin!

Rather than using chemical preservatives, 100% Pure cosmetics use natural preservatives such as anti-bacterial herbs, this and other unique proprietary technologies distinguish the company from competitors. They stabilise active ingredients from oxidising using Japanese Honeysuckle, Thyme, Oregano, Goldenseal, Rosemary, Lavender and a high concentration of vitamins and antioxidants to naturally preserve all products.
