Illuminate with our coconut based Aura accent balms.
Loaded with shimmer; one dab will emanate your inner glow! Not glittery and not greasy, these balms glide on the skin with a silky, feather-light feel.
We use a synthetic mica in our 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 our ingredients to the gram because we 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. We stubbornly refuse to use mined micas in our 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 our efforts to reduce plastic, we chose glass and tin! Aura's glass jar and tin lid are 100% recyclable.
