NAS Cosmetics Frequently Asked Questions

 

We’ve heard that “Natural” and “Mineral” doesn’t necessarily mean quality or good makeup.  Do NAS Cosmetics products have nasties in them even though they’re natural?

We have always been very thorough and fussy on the quality of our products.  Our customers don’t need yet another ‘Natural’ and/or ‘Mineral’ makeup that they feel cheats them!  Our motto at NAS Cosmetics is “Know your Ingredients”.  For this reason, we have listed all of our ingredients in the ‘Our Products’ section at the footer of our pages.  To fill a gap in the market, we do use some ingredients that are not natural but are also not harmful and we have had to use a minute amount of  propylene Glycol in our Mascara as we have not (to date) been able to produce a completely natural mascara that is effective 🙁  We will keep working on this!

 

What is the SPF rating of NAS cosmetics?

We have chosen not to rate our products.  We are only too aware that the SPF protection against UVA & UVB rays is dependent on the amount of product/s used.  A single NAS Cosmetics product has its own natural SPF protection and combined with other NAS Cosmetics products, the protection increases.

 

Are all of your products Vegan?

Our loose powder products are all Vegan including Primer, Foundation, Concealer, Veil, Highlighter, Bronzer, Blush & Eye Shadow.  Our lipsticks contain a fantastic by-products from the bee – beeswax, thus making it non-vegan.  It’s a vital ingredient in some of our products as not only is it a great source of vitamin A, but it has wonderful conditioning properties, and an anti-inflammatory action to name a few. However, our products are NOT tested on animals!

 

Is NAS Cosmetics MADE and OWNED in Australia?

It proudly is :’-) xx

 

 

Do you use talc, bismuth oxychloride or palm oil?

Not a chance!  We understand the ramifications of using these ingredients and know the complications associated with the use of cosmetics containing these ingredients.  We pride ourselves on the quality of our ingredients.

 

How do NAS cosmetics last all day?

NAS Cosmetics uses the finest ingredients sourced from all over the globe and ensures that the particle size used are micro particles rather than nano-particles.  Micro particle minerals rest on the top layer of skin and are not absorbed.  When particles are milled to nano size they are absorbed and tend to disappear quickly throughout the day.

 

 

Why does it feel like you’re not wearing makeup with NAS Cosmetic products?

Being loose mineral powder and because of the quality of ingredients, they allow the makeup to remain light to wear and hence allow your skin to breathe while wearing them.

 

Why are your products not “Organic”?

By nature, minerals cannot be organic as they are not a living organism.

 

Does NAS Cosmetics adhere to labour standards for producing products?

NAS Cosmetics does not entertain business relationships with any domestic or foreign companies that use child labour.

 

How does NAS Cosmetics makeup work with acne?

The Zinc Oxide component of our various products have earned an FDA approval of its use as a skin protectant.  NAS Cosmetics have worked extremely hard to produce products that have healing properties and that won’t clog pores.  We produce unique products that allow your skin to breathe and heal naturally and in turn, allow damaged skin and acne to heal and repair.
