The BEST Cosmetic Ingredients

Posted

SHARE

The ingredients we use to formulate our products are extremely important to us. Where do they come from? How are they harvested and processed? How does their cultivation effect the surrounding environment? We ask a lot of questions from our suppliers and we only manufacture our products using supplies from companies that care as much as we do. Every ingredient we use is minimally processed and used while fresh to capture the most potent antioxidant properties. Our products live up to their claims and help sooth, detoxify and rejuvenate, tired, damaged or aged skin. We only make our beauty products in small batches to preserve the best quality ingredients and maintain freshness. ZCC delivers luxury, small batch, craft mineral make up and cosmetics to eco-conscious consumers who enjoy a lifestyle of health and sustainability (LOHAS). With an emphasis on healthy, sustainable, responsibly sourced mineral ingredients, the brand delivers a clean product that rivals top brands in the industry.

Amazing Healing Properties of Iris Florentina

One Ingredient Miracle Multi Use Balm

Mostly because you have very little materials to work with and you must create a product that is as good or better at performing than the synthetic competition.
