Frequently Asked Questions #11

Q. Do natural products grow illnesses?
A. Natural products have to be treated with more respect than conventional one; that is the trade off for not exposing your body to a multitude of chemicals that conventional manufacturers have to use to maintain shelf life and safety no matter what the abuse.

Frequently Asked Questions #12

Q. Does The Organic Make-up Company have any organic makeup that doesn’t have oil in it?
A. This question is one that we get all the time, because of the prevalent belief that oil-containing products promote oil production on the skin and lead to break outs. This is true of petro-based oils like mineral oil, paraffin waxes, etc. These oils block pores, which lead to break outs, but plant oils and waxes do not have the same effect. They are dry oils and actually cause the oil glands to slow down production of the skin’s oil because it senses that it is well lubricated. We do not see the same result in the application of petro oils.

Q. Is there any problem with bacteria and other microbes growing in The Organic Make-up Company's products?
A. If a customer follows some basic hygiene rules and storage procedures, the products will be fine. Any product, if abused (i.e.- dirty hands to apply concealer, etc) has the potential to become dangerous through inoculation by the consumer after it has been purchased.
