Plant-based Makeup- the new Beauty Standard
I recently sat down with the warm-hearted Krysta Lewis, CEO and founder of Aisling Organic Cosmetics (AOC). After hearing about her groundbreaking makeup line, using all-natural, botanically infused ingredients, I was eager to personally meet her and get to know more about her passionate endeavors. Krysta started up AOC after paying close attention to the components in her daily cosmetics. She explained to me that she became extremely ill, and after investigation, realized the culprit was the makeup she was putting onto her face.
“I threw my makeup out and quickly searched for an alternative. I was soon disappointed as none of the options I tried were both long lasting and truly pure. This was when I decided to launch a line that was the best of both worlds.”
Many of us are blind shoppers when it comes to makeup, meaning we never actually look at the label of what we put onto our face. Today, most cosmetics contain tons of artificial ingredients and chemicals. Unfortunately, many of the constituents found in makeup have been shown to increase the risk of cancer, weaken immune systems and even disturb natural hormone levels.
Krysta’s dream for Aisling Organic Cosmetics is to draw awareness to others about the harmful ingredients found in makeup, and ultimately decrease the amount of toxic ingredients routinely used in people’s daily lives.
“Aisling means ‘vision’ in Irish—our vision at AOC is that one day every individual will only put the purest ingredients on their skin to promote optimal health. We believe so strongly in our vision that we decided to make that the name of the company.”
AOC uses organic and pure earth found botanicals over conventional, synthetic elements. The best part is, along with being completely natural, these cosmetics provide amazing coverage all while nourishing the skin. A few key ingredients include Aloe Vera, to soothe and hydrate the skin, Rosemary, Thyme and Oregano, to clear up acne and keep bacteria away from the skin, as well as Chamomile and Lavender to calm redness and inflammation.
“It’s really beautiful when you can use products that make your skin feel great after removing it!”
Krysta’s biggest goal for Aisling Organic Cosmetics is to inspire and educate others to pay attention to the ingredients found in the beauty products they use regularly and promote prime well-being. Krysta believes that by continually spreading knowledge and support, AOC has the power to change lives around the globe. With a steady growth, Krysta now has about 50 studios, give or take, and hopes to set a new standard for beauty through her plant-based cosmetics.
