According to the University of California, the average woman will apply lipstick 2-14 times over a 12-hour period and will unknowingly ingest as much as 87 milligrams of product each day; which, over a lifetime, can equate to over 2-kilograms. As category regulations vary from country to country, this puts consumers at risk of ingesting potentially toxic ingredients, such as lead and cadmium, which has been linked to cancer, infertility, hormonal disruptions, and skin sensitivities.
Championing clean and conscious Australian cosmetics since 2012, the winner of The Green Edit’s 2022 Sustainability Award, Lük Beautifood, raises the bar in safe, long-lasting pigmented colour with the introduction of their 100% natural, cruelty-free and vegan-friendly two-in-one Lipstick Crayons.
Formulated with organic coconut oil, plant waxes, vitamin E and natural silica for a soft focus effect, the hydrating and creamy lipstick-liners provide long-lasting demi-matte colour with a nourishing cocktail of antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids. Moisturising lips for a smoother, plumper, and more youthful-looking pout, each crayon contains oryzanol, a bioactive component of rice brand oil, to protect skin from free radical damage and filter harmful UV rays.
Made in Italy and constructed using sustainably sourced wood from renewable sources, the crayons are free from unhealthy animal fats, petroleum, and controversial mineral oils which can be fatal to domestic animals and wildlife.
Available in four skin-flattering shades, including Honey Peach (light warm nude), Caramel Kiss (neutral rose brown), Fig Brûlée (neutral mauve rose) and Lychee Sorbet (dusty pink), the range is available globally and ideal for both personal and professional use.
