I missed posting about #MakeupMonday #3, so just add it to the list appropriately titled “Things I Haven’t Had Time To Accomplish” 🙂 #WeAllNeedGrace #PostingEachDayThisWeek #ChallengeAccepted
Did you know that mica (the sparkles in makeup) mining is one of the top child slaveries in the world? Children (as young as 5 years old) are sent into the mines under harsh conditions for up to 12 hours each day so that you can have glittery blush and eye shadow. Even if you are using a safe mineral-based makeup, chances are they may be getting their mica from a child labor source.
The great thing about Beautycounter, we are a B Corp. This means we have to meet extremely strict standards in regards to the sustainability and ethical practices of the ingredients we use. Our blush duos not only come with a Certificate of Purity (no heavy metals), but peace of mind knowing that they mica comes from ethically extracted sources.
