Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Q. What are the benefits of using an Ayurvedic or Organic foundation?

Ayurvedic foundations are blended from natural herbs, plant extracts, minerals, butters, essential oils and tints to minimize the load of toxic chemicals such as parabens, sulphates, phthalates, etc. on your health that somehow find a way into your body and bloodstream through the skin. 

If you constantly use chemical makeup, your risk of developing threatening health problems in future rises. By consciously choosing ayurvedic make-up made from organic herbs and natural derivatives, you’re putting a restraint on the quantity of toxins you get exposed to on a daily basis.

Being the most widely used cosmetic, a foundation is something that can put you in direct contact with hazardous chemicals, if you use it regularly. An Ayurvedic foundation gives you the freedom to use it as much as you want without any safety concerns. 

Q. What type of coverage do organic foundations offer?  Are they any better than the High Definition synthetic Foundations?

Most ayurvedic and organic foundations are blended to accentuate skin’s natural glow without occluding its original colour and texture. They work the way a skin tint works, to subtly improve skin radiance and clarify skin tone.

If you’re needing full coverage, you need to study product details to check the type of coverage an organic make-up foundation can deliver. Pick the one that provides ‘buildable’ or ‘full’ coverage.

Certain brand fuse together High definition skin priming features in their ayurvedic foundations. Such foundations are better than synthetic counterparts as they come without toxic chemicals and pose no serious risk to your health. 

Q. Are Ayurvedic foundations 100% safe?

No. Some specific plant extracts do exhibit toxic activity when used in concentrated forms which only means that if something is Ayurvedic or natural, it shouldn’t be used without exercising caution. When using new brands, ingredients or products, it is suggested to do a patch test to know how your skin responds to each of these agents.

Q. What is the best way to use an Ayurvedic foundation?

An Ayurvedic foundation is lightweight and consists of natural essential oils. Therefore, it is best used on a cleansed face primed with a hydrating gel serum to help lock in moisture and nutrients. You can use either your fingertips or a makeup sponge to spread the foundation evenly on your face. Never rub it into your skin, just let it cover your face using gentle strokes to help it easily settle on your skin.

With a great bunch of natural options at your disposal, it’s time to ditch the chemicals and bring the goodness of nature into your life. Try out our suggestions for the best organic foundations and promote sustainable beauty.
