Vapour Organic Beauty revolutionizes luxury performance cosmetics with unique light-as-air textures, sophisticated color artistry and natural mineral pigments suspended in organic botanicals. Vapour delivers the look of flawless glowing skin without compromise.
Why is Vapour different?
Vapour’s minerals are suspended in a concentrated moisturizing base. Vapour does not settle into or accentuate fine lines and wrinkles like dry minerals can. There are no powders to inhale.
Vapour glides on easily and blends seamlessly. Skin texture becomes immediately smoother, softer and more beautiful as imperfections, lines and pores are diminished.
Vapour is 100% natural. It contains 70% organic ingredients and 30% mineral pigments and essential oils. That is it. Vapour contains No toxic chemicals, No parabens, No phalates, No animal testing, No nano-particles, No irradiation.
Why Organic Ingredients?
Organic ingredients have been found to offer more antioxidant potency than their conventional counterparts. Vapour’s super concentrated formulas deliver skin supportive Antioxidants, EFAs (essential fatty acids), Vitamins & Minerals. Since what is applied to our skin is absorbed it makes sense to use organic, non toxic ingredients that support beautiful, radiant skin. Vapour multi tasks – it is skincare and color in one.
Does Vapour contain Antioxidants?
Yes. Research indicates that antioxidants are most potent in a blend. Vapour is rich in synergistic antioxidant blends that protect skin and help prevent aging of the skin.
Skin damage can result from the destructive activity of free radicals produced by many factors including over exposure to the sun and environment stress. Antioxidants are key to rounding up and removing free radicals and protecting skin against premature aging.
What is Vapour Light Reflective Technology?
Vapour Light Reflective Technology makes skin appear lit from within – luminous, refreshed and youthful. Vapour complements the skin tone of the wearer; creating a ‘custom fit’. Our Light Reflective Technology allows different skin tones to look great in the same Vapour shade and flatters every skin tone, every ethnicity and every age.
What are Vapour's Scent Blends?
Scent can elevate our mood or calmly ground us. Scent enhances our experience of pleasure. Vapour product scents are understated and elegant. All our scent blends are created exclusively from pure essential oils and fruit extracts. Vapour does NOT use artificial fragrance, perfume or synthetics that contain phalates or endocrine disruptors.
Water is necessary for micro-organisms to grow in a product. Vapour’s waterless formulas eliminate the need for harsh preservatives. Vapour has the same 2 year shelf life as its conventional counterparts. By eliminating water we do not tax the local water table in our delicate high desert eco-system. In addition, a typical liquid foundation contains 70-80% water. Because Vapour is waterless it is concentrated all active product, providing an excellent value. Is Vapour Cruelty Free?
Vapour Organic Beauty does not test on animals. Nor are any of the raw ingredients in Vapour tested on animals. Vapour is a member of the Leaping Bunny Program, an internationally recognized organization that promotes a standardized “Cruelty Free” policy.
Why does Vapour use organic beeswax?
We have made a conscious choice to formulate exclusively with organic beeswax. Supporting organic bee products is a responsible choice for both bees and the environment.
The global bee population is suffering from the contaminating effects of pesticides used in conventional farming. Harvesting organic beeswax as a valuable commodity helps ensure that bee populations will continue to have safe habitats and prosper.
Will Vapour Cause Breakouts?
No. Vapour is non-occlusive and non-comedogenic. Vapour uses organic plant oils that do NOT clog pores or cause breakouts. These plant oils allow skin to breath and over time can balance oily skin by breaking the pattern of over active sebum production.
There is a lot of confusion about “oil” in skincare. It is synthetic oils like mineral oil, baby oil and petrolatum that seal the skin with a non-breathable barrier that clogs pores. Synthetic oils suffocate skin causing a harmful buildup of CO2 in the tissues that can irritate and prematurely age skin. This can cause pimples and give “oil” a bad name.
Why mineral pigments vs. fruit, flower or FD&C pigments?
Vapour is colored exclusively with minerals and carmine. Mineral pigments, iron oxides and micas have been used as colorants since the cave paintings of Lascaux in 15,000 BC. Carmine is simply the best natural way to achieve red and it has been for more than 2,000 years. Its first recorded cosmetic use was in England in 1523.
Vapour does NOT contain lab-created FD&C or Lake Colorants like some cosmetics claiming to be “natural”. FD&C colorants are suspect because of proven toxicity dangers. They contain coal tar and petroleum. Health concerns range from tumor growth and neurotransmitter alteration to ADD in children.
Vapour does NOT use plant colorants. Water based plant pigments mean aggressive and often toxic preservatives (such as parabens) are necessary to keep the product safe for use. Chemical preservatives are not necessary in Vapour because Vapour products are all water free.
Why Stick Applicators?
Stick applicators allow for direct application with no additional brushes, sponges or tools. Sticks are easy to use and don’t create extra landfill waste.
