“Cordovan Natural looks gorgeous under natural candlelight. I wear this colour more than any other in my collection.”
Candelilla (Euphorbia cerifera)
The candelilla plant grows in the northern Mexico. Plants growing in the hottest and driest areas produce a protective covering, which yields a hard vegetable wax of superior quality after processing. Candelilla wax is yellow, and is mixed in lipstick production for its hard, brittle, glossy and slightly tacky properties.
Evening primrose oil (Oenothera biennis)
Rich in omega-6, soothing and very moisturising.
Castor oil (Ricinus communis)
Excellent emollient properties and a high-acting pigment dispersant. Due to its high viscosity, castor oil also helps to suspend pigment in the manufacturing process to avoid settling when hot. The milling process reduces particle size and ensures even suspension and distribution.
