I have read numerous scary stories about the chemicals being absorbed into our systems from skin scare products alone, one stat stated that in one year alone the average woman would absorbed up to 5lbs of chemicals from make up. Eeeeeek! So with the want of killing two birds with one stone, one actually building and maintaining a good skincare routine and two, being more consumer aware in terms of the products ethical standards AND chemical stances, I looked around to see what was out there. When I did, I found, RMS Beauty.
RMS Beauty stands for Rose-Marie Swift. A New York based Make up artist with a succesful career spanning over 20 years, with featured work in Vogue, W, I.D and Harpers to name just a few. Many years ago when experiencing health difficulties Rose-Marie discovered that what contributed so such health issues were the fact she had toxic levels of metals, chemicals and solvents in her body (full story can be found at: rmsbeauty.com) . This discovery and actually shock of this lead her to conduct research and development of skincare and make up products that were safe and organic. Thus the creation of her own line.
The eye shadows alone aren't the only products that have more than one function, with products like 'lip and cheek balms' and 'lip2cheek' colours, creams and illuminizers there is plenty to look after your skin above and bellow the surface.
