Afterglow Pure Mineral Cosmetics


"I read about Afterglow products in an article in Alternative Medicine Magazine. Because I was fed up with the use of chemicals by many companies in the cosmetics industry, I decided to give Afterglow a try. I threw away all of my old makeup, and decided to make a fresh start. I was thrilled when I received my order. What was more exciting, however, was the compliments that I received from so many people such as: “Your skin looks great.” I also love the way the products feel on my skin. The foundation feels so light, almost as if I don't have on any makeup. In addition, the eye shadow colors are beautiful and really bring out the color of my eyes. Even though I love the quality of the products, what I like more, however, is that I am not harming my body with dangerous chemicals found in the majority of cosmetics. I would like to thank Afterglow for putting the safety of women as a priority."

The Afterglow Mineral Cosmetics line was developed out of my personal need for healthy color cosmetics that not only out-performed traditional cosmetics but were also natural and fashionable. All the women in my family are sensitive to food, cosmetics and perfume. I started using make-up at an early age to cover up acne but it seemed to only make my skin feel and look worse. I have always been aware of washing my food well, eating organic and avoiding pesticides. However, for many years I never drew a straight line from this mode of thinking about my food and caring for my body to thinking the same way about my personal care products and the effect they have on my body both inside and out.


Though there were other natural and mineral cosmetics already out there calling their products natural, they still included objectionable ingredients like petro-chemicals, parabens and bismuth oxychloride. These alternatives also fell short in the color selection department. Instead of continuing the frustrating search for the ideal cosmetic line, I decided to create the solution for myself. I started by making cosmetics for myself, friends and family and quickly realized that there was simply nothing else out there that could compare to the luminecent finish, gentleness and the quality of pharmaceutical grade and certified organic ingredients. In 2004 Afterglow Mineral Cosmetics was born. Now I work with some of the most innovative and creative chemists to develop new and exciting natural, organic and mineral cosmetics.I truly believe that quality can be achieved naturally without the standard, and often toxic, petro-chemicals and synthetics found in traditional cosmetics. You can create naturally glamorous looks without sacrificing color palette or product effectiveness. Afterglow's unique blend of minerals and natural pigments has been very carefully formulated with your style, health and beauty in mind.

Be well,
