Truth in Aging, a leading anti-aging and beauty site, is unveiling a new partnership with cosmetics brand Alima Pure. Kate Oâ€™Brien, makeup artist and mother, developed the line to create a brand dedicated to safe makeup of 100% pure mineral pigment makeup.
Online PR News – 06-April-2012 – New York, NY – Truth in Aging will be expanding its cosmetics offerings with Alima Pure, which recently passed Truth in Agingâ€™s testing standards. Alima Pure mineral cosmetics are virtually free of allergens and sensitizers, completely free of bismuth oxychloride and are non-comedogenic (will not clog pores).
Alima Pure has received a 1-2 rating from the Environmental Working Groups Skin Deep Database which is unusual for a makeup brand. Most Alima Pure products (with the exception of the lipbalms) carry the BDIH natural cosmetics seal, which is a coveted German certification for natural cosmetics. Alima Pure has met the European Unionâ€™s EU Cosmetic Directive standards, which ban thousands of chemicals and is much more stringent than U.S. FDA guidelines.
Mineral makeup is inorganic (mineral-based vs. plant or animal-based). Minerals form a protective barrier on the surface of the skin rather than crossing the dermal barrier as some liquid cosmetics do. As a result, mineral makeup doesn't require preservatives or parabens and is naturally chemical free. Alima Pure products are also gluten free and contain no nano-particles.
Truth in Aging is excited to bring this line to its shop as mineral makeup can lack vibrancy when it comes to color, but this is where Alima Pure excels. Founder, Kate Oâ€™Brien, is a makeup artist, hence her way with color and pigmentation; Alima Pureâ€™s pigments are truly vibrant and their understanding of skin tone is impressive. Specific Truth in Aging staff and user reviews about Alima Pure cosmetics can be found at www.truthinaging.com.
