I have always liked the idea of making my own cosmetic products, but have never really got around to buying the individual ingredients. Oleum Vera make it easy though, they supply you with everything you need to start making your own organic cosmetic products. They have kits for face oils, face masks, body oils, hair masks and one specifically for men! I tried the face oil and mask kits which I love! It's fun to be able to customise your products to suit your own skin and scents that you like. I made a face oil with the following ingredients: macadamia nut oil, grapeseed oil, avocado oil and a few drops of frankincense and patchouli. It takes me only a couple of minutes to whip up a fresh batch which I store in the Oleum Vera glass bottles provided.
Oleum Vera loves beauty, but organic and all-natural ingredients are their passion! Using the most natural, organic ingredients is better for your body, better for the environment, and better for local agriculture. They want the word ‘organic’ to be much more than just a catchy marketing slogan. That’s why their buyers work diligently to find the purest, USDA- and ECOCERT-approved ingredients for you.
All their essential oils, butter and beeswax are certified organic by ECOCERT ICO according to NPO standards. 100% of the total ingredients of each Oleum Vera essential oil are sourced from organic farms certified COSMOS Greenlife according to COSMOS standard. The majority of their plant-based oils are certified organic by ECOCERT ICO according to NPO standards. 100% of the total ingredients of almost every Oleum Vera plant-based oil are sourced from organic farms certified COSMOS Greenlife according to COSMOS standard. Additionally, our plant-based vitamin E oil is non-GMO.
The Spirulina Algae, Rose Petals, and Lavender Buds sold by Oleum Vera are also certified organic by ECOCERT ICO according to NPO standards. 100% of these floral ingredients are sourced from organic farms certified COSMOS Greenlife according to COSMOS standard. Under current US standards, naturally-occurring clay cannot be certified organic. Such certification is only given to items that have been field grown under organic supervision. Their bentonite clay and white kaolin clay are pure, but since clay can’t be grown in a field, it is not ‘organic’ under FDA regulations. However, rest assured that their clays are 100% of natural origin and certified COSMOS Greenlife according to COSMOS standard.
So, why not get making your own green beauty products this year? You might find you like them more than store bought products and save some money at the same time!
