Araza Natural Beauty
We are not your mother's Makeup. We are makeup and skincare that heals and performs.
The Araza Natural Beauty Skincare line is a one of a kind. At Araza Natural Beauty, we feel that your makeup should do more for you than just “cover up your flaws”. It is our promise to you that we will produce and sell only the healthiest and most pure line of organic cosmetics & skincare. When it comes to ingredients, we use only the highest quality 100% Natural & Certified Organic Ingredients we can find. Araza Natural Beauty Skincare was made for the busy, health-conscious woman who needs a clean and high performing makeup that is both safe and enhances her natural beauty.
About the Brand
The journey to Araza Beauty started with our own health issues that caused us to re-examine our way of living. It naturally began with looking at the foods we were putting in our bodies, but then we turned to the products we put on our bodies, like makeup. We had been using our go-to products for years, but we’d never looked closely at each of the ingredients to learn what they’re there for, and how they could affect us. Our makeup just made us feel good. Or did it? It was more like a short-term feel good. Followed by long-term effects. Vicious cycles of damaging our skin and covering it back up. And silently contributing to our health issues. We decided that changing our makeup was a big part in changing how we live. We decided it was time to break old habits, say screw convention for convention’s sake, and create a better way.
And Araza was born. Makeup and skincare that heals and performs.
What are Araza Natural Beauty Products Made from?
We take great pride in researching and sourcing only the most pure and highest quality organic and natural earth based ingredients from around the world. Our beauty products are made from natural ocuring minerals, raw earth and plant based ingredients and healthy skin-loving fats. We want you to know exactly what you are putting on your skin so each product page has an ingredient breakdown. We try to use ingredients in unprocessed free form as much as possible. We will never formulate our products with parabens, chemicals, unnecessary fillers, sulfates, phthalates, Triclosan, artificial fragrances or colors.
Are the Products Cruelty Free?
Yes, all of our products are cruelty free. We do not test on animals
Are there any preservatives in the makeup?
We use absolutely no artificial preservatives in our makeup. We have found certain plant based ingredients to be natural preservatives so we have choose to formulate our products using them. However, we still recommend using the product within a year of purchase.
Are your products safe for pregnancy?
What do you use to color your cosmetics?
We use natural earth minerals like zinc oxide, iron oxides and mica as well as plant extracts. We don’t believe in using synthetic dyes or colorants in our products.
I heard that Coconut Oil is comedogenic, bad for your skin and clogs pores. Is this true?
We use Certified Organic Fractioned Coconut Oil (MCT oil) in our coconut containing products. This amazing oil has all of the skin-loving benefits of Raw Coconut Oil but without the potential of clogging your pores that can lead to breakouts. MCT oil is coconut oil that has had the heavy, long chain fatty acid removed, resulting in an oil that is lightweight, more shelf-stable, still full of healthy, skin- nourishing fatty acids and is much more easily absorbed. For more info, visit our blog post The truth about coconut oil in skincare & makeup and why we choose to formulate with MCT oil.
FYI: Raw coconut oil does not cause clogged pores or breakouts in everyone. For some it works as a fabulous moisturizer in raw form.
Are Araza Beauty products also vegan?
The following products are all strict vegan products: Citrus Illuminating Raw Beauty Oil, Fresh Mineral Cheek Colors, Fresh Mineral Sunshine Bronzer, Vitamin Boost Hydrating Face Mist, Avocado Butter Eye + Brow Pencil, Coconut Charcoal + Sea Greens Treatment Mask, Primer + Finishing Translucent Clay Powder.
Some of our products contain Certified Organic Beeswax. Beeswax is vegetarian as no animals are harmed or killed in the process of obtaining the beeswax. It’s in the best interest to the beekeeper to give the bees the best living conditions possible. The following products contain Certified Organic Beeswax: Coconut Cream Foundation, Coconut Corrective Cream Concealer, Rejuvenating Coconut Lip Color, Sweet Mint Healthy Lip Balm.
