OMG IT WORKED! I tried making a foaming cleanser the other week but it didn’t foam because I didn’t have the proper bottle for it. I thought maybe it was because I did something wrong. However, I got the proper foaming bottle and...IT FOAMED! Woot!! Now to perfect this formula.
I very rarely wear makeup.I know I’m not perfect and don’t particularly care. All hale #wabisabi
Even more scarce is me in front of a camera. I’d much rather be a behind the scenes girl, the one who does the graft.
I’m currently enjoying formulating beauty balms with slight tints though, great for busy, time starved mums like me. Taking care of your skin at the same time as treating yourself to a bit of a natural glow.
Ever wonder what’s “THE ORIGIN OF GREEN BEAUTY”? Look no further we are shedding light on this and more. It has been a while that I've been involved in what we call "green beauty community", which has blessed me to meet an array of amazing personal brands. One in particular has grown to become extra special to me, and I cannot wait for you to meet an amazing woman I have great admiration, Cindy @culturaconwellness.
It is such a warm feeling to connect with someone who understands the uniqueness behind a Latina-American indie and personal brand who also keeps always true to herself. A virtue I value more than words can describe. We share a common perspective of "do what works best for you" lifestyle, celebrating our culture and all about empowering women.
I see this woman on the way to an amazing future, and I'm sure you will love to hear what we have to share with you.

As beautiful as natural and plant based colourants are , they are extremely pH dependant and they are not as photostable as conventional colourants.
pH stabilizers (buffering the product) and application of chelators and antioxidants helps a lot for photostability but you must be aware that the stability is not comparable to conventional colourants anyway.
If you want to avoid any unpleasant surprises and turning your beautiful extract colour to an ugly unwanted shade , make sure the pH is in the range when you add the extract. Sometimes the colour change is reversible and it turns to the original shade when you adjust the pH but this doesn't always happen.
