How SCOUT Eye Makeup Helps to Combat Environmental Stress
Posted on 02 August 2018
Not only are our SCOUT Mineral Eye Makeup Products full of active natural ingredients and free of harmful toxins, they also help to combat against environmental stresses such as pollution, sun damage, and dryness that may be potentially irritating for your eyes and the surrounding skin. With our mineral eye makeup range you can enhance your natural beauty, while also nourishing and protecting your skin.
Our SCOUT Eye Liner Chubbi Pencils are infused with Grapefruit Seed Extract, which acts to protect the skin around your eyes from exposure to pollution and help fight against free radicals as they are full of powerful antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Vitamin A. Vitamin C in particular can help to protect your skin from sun-damage and promote collagen production to improve the appearance of your skin texture. Grapefruit extract also has an incredibly high water content, which helps to strengthen and hydrate your skin, and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Our Chubbi pencils also include Candelilla Wax, used as alternative to beeswax. This helps to give our Chubbi pencils their soft and creamy formula and allowing for a smoother application. Candelilla Wax helps to add an extra protective and nourishing barrier against moisture loss and sun damage and is also vegan.
Like all of our mineral eye makeup products, our Brow Defining Dust and our Pure Colour Mineral Eyeshadows contain naturally occurring titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, two common ingredients that can be found in sunscreen. These two natural ingredients help to shield your skin against the sun’s damaging UV rays by sitting on the top layers of your skin to reflect and absorb harmful rays and help to prevent pre-mature skin ageing. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are highly soothing and calming, and anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial, helping to prevent irritation, redness or itchiness. These two power ingredients are also insoluble in water, meaning they help to keep your eye makeup intact all day – rain, hail or shine!
While winter weather can be incredibly drying on the skin, our mineral eye makeup is designed to ensure your skin stays as hydrated and supple as possible. I made sure to include highly nourishing ingredients in our products such as Organic Jojoba Seed Oil and Castor Oil, which can be found in our SCOUT Mascara and Eye Liner Chubbi Pencils. Jojoba Oil is rich in Vitamin E helping it to work as a humectant by drawing water deep into your skin layers and sealing it in for long-lasting hydration. The other hero ingredient that can be found in our Mascara is Castor Oil, which delivers an abundance of essential fatty acids to nourish your lashes and the surrounding eye area
