HURRAW! - Crimson Aura Balm
HURRAW! - Crimson Aura Balm
Get a little cheeky with this coconut based Crimson Aura accent balm!
Crimson Aura was specifically formulated to give your cheeks a pinch of color and shimmer without staining, feeling greasy or being too sparkly. Yes, you can use on lips too ;) Note: this product has slightly less shimmer than HURRAW other Aura Accent Balms.
An alkanet root infusion mixed with anthocyanin rich purple carrot extract offers a gorgeous sheer crimson hue.
100% plant based color = no iron/tin oxide colorants (metal), carmine (cochineal insect) or FD&C/D&C synthetic dyes and lakes (petroleum).
HURRAW use a synthetic mica in their Aura balms. In this case, synthetic means the “sparkles” are made in a laboratory from natural minerals vs. mined from the earth. Traceability, transparency, and safety is imperative when manufacturing cosmetics. Hurraw can trace their ingredients to the gram because they make it ourselves (no contract manufacturing).
Unfortunately, earth mined ingredients (micas, iron/tin oxides) are nearly impossible to track. Suppliers can rarely provide certificate of origin, proof of labor conditions, or documentation of what impurities they contain. At HURRAW they stubbornly refuse to use mined micas in their Aura balms due to contamination, heavy metals, and hushed child labor practices.
Importantly, synthetic mica is third party tested to be free of antimony, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, chromium, cobalt, and nickel. It is also safety tested for human use, i.e. the particles of shimmer are much too large to penetrate the skin and have been thoroughly tested for safe cosmetic use.
Glass/Tin: In their efforts to reduce plastic, they chose glass and tin! Aura's glass jar and tin lid are 100% recyclable.
Tiny Air Bubbles: Rare but sometimes appear on the surface due to the pouring process. These do not affect the product quality or performance in any way.
