FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION
rms is the initials of Rose-Marie Swift, who created this line of color cosmetics. It also stands for "Real Make-up Secrets" and "Right Mental State".
A great deal of time, energy and resources were used to research and develop a line of make-up products that not only help you to enhance your beauty, but also to protect you from the potential dangers of known synthetic ingredients. Many so-called natural products contain many synthetic ingredients, often used as preservatives and fragrances, yet these are not disclosed to consumers as synthetic and potentially harmful ingredients. Also, the manufacturing process renders many oils – even organic ones – toxic. At rms beauty we take great pride in using manufacturing processes that avoid heating oils to high temperatures, so that all healing enzymes, vitamins and antioxidants remain intact. We guarantee the highest grade of ultra pure ingredients in rms beauty products. Please note…..Organic is a guarantee of safety NOT quality. We have taken those extra steps to also guarantee the highest quality.
Another important benefit of RMS Beauty over other natural brands is that Rose-Marie is a well known makeup artist. She has worked with the biggest names in the beauty and fashion industry so a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience has gone into the making of this brand towards standing out from the crowd.
Yes, we hope to continue to expand the rms beauty line. Please visit this site regularly for updates or sign up for our newsletter to be the first to know about new product releases.
HOW TO APPLY
rms beauty is a dialogue with the skin. The warmth of your fingers soften the products so they are easily blended using minimal application. rms beauty make-up blends to perfection so easily that even beginners will have no problem. rms beauty products will simplify your beauty regimen to be faster than you could ever imagine. The most user friendly line ever created.
We prefer applying rms beauty with fingers because skin to skin application is superior. It blends so much better and benefits the skin because it stimulates blood flow. Its acupressure touch approach to the skin encourages skin cell regeneration and turnover. Skin must be stimulated or it atrophies.
I have now created a foundation brush that mimics skin to skin application that is the perfect foundation brush you will ever use. Both the foundation and blush brush are designed to make make-up application very easy and mess proof.
This is one of our favourites, and a must-have for the most dewy, luminous look ever. It provides a subtle light-reflecting sheen without looking glittery, white or heavy like most highlighters. Watch the skin instantly come alive. Use minimally on cheekbones, eyes, brow bones, down bridge of the nose, bows of the lips for a sexy pout or as a lip gloss. Will highlight and brighten the face better than any other product out there and will not dry out.
Initially, the terms 'natural' and 'organic' were used to describe products made with ingredients that came from nature. Unfortunately, as soon as marketers learned that consumers enjoyed the idea of non-synthetic products, the words began to appear on all sorts of products, whether they were truthful or not. It's called green-washing, and it's possible because consumers have to be well-informed consumer to distinguish frauds from the real deal.
Honest natural products contain ingredients from plants and nature and are minimally processed. Organic products take 'natural' several steps further: they are made with non-GM ingredients that have been grown, raised, harvested, manufactured and preserved without chemical herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, antibiotics – giving you products with fewer contaminants. All of these extra steps cost more in organic farming and processing, which is why organic products tend to cost more. This, of course, is part of the problem: as soon as manufacturers realize consumers will pay more for a product with 'organic' on the label, the word starts to appear.
And here are some of the tricks used: the chemical definition of organic is 'a compound that contains a carbon atom'. Since carbon is found in anything that lives or has ever lived, unscrupulous companies use synthetic chemicals derived from petroleum products, describing them as organic preservatives. This use of the word, of course, has nothing at all to do with the reason you might be interested in the product.
Another label deception: since water is the primary ingredient in many products, some manufacturers claim to use organic floral waters or hydrosols. Look at the label a little closer and you'll also see synthetic toxic ingredients. That's your first clue the product has been green-washed and that you'll want to put it back on the shelf!
Pay attention, as well, to phrases like 'derived from' – which indicates that something was done to your natural ingredient to turn it into something no longer natural. Having said that, however, chemical reactions take place all the time – even naturally – turning one thing into another. For example, soap is the result of combining a fat, like coconut oil, with a salt, like sodium hydroxide: two natural ingredients coming together to create a whole new item. The bottom line is that you should educate yourself on what sorts of ingredients you want to avoid and make informed purchasing decisions .
Please see www.beautytruth.com for more information on chemicals to avoid.
The quick answer is ‘ NO.' The reason for this decision takes a little explanation.
Currently, there are no uniform standards in the United States or Canada to certify organic cosmetics. Certain individual states, like California, have created guidelines, but they aren't accepted everywhere. Canada hopes to have national regulations in place soon, but it's uncertain if manufactured products will be included.
Currently, products that are certified bear the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) seal. This works well for foods, agriculture and livestock but doesn't take into account the various processing steps involved in sourcing, formulating, manufacturing and distributing cosmetic products. In effect, the USDA seal isn't applicable for color cosmetics. Color minerals used in color cosmetics can not be certified organic because they are not grown. Skin care lines without color can apply for USDA Certification and not surprisingly, certification is expensive. So we decided to wait until organic certification has been made applicable to color cosmetic products and standardized across the board before we proceed with it. We also must have a certifier that we feel establishes a very high standard of organic certification that truly rewards for quality like that which we have put into rms beauty products. We feel this quality lacks in other certifying agents.
Almost all of the ingredients in rms beauty products are certified organic (USDA and NOP) and are indicated as such on the label.
The nasty truth……....the USDA has now allowed GMO ingredients in a very low percentage in USDA labeled food and skin care. RMS Beauty allows NO GMO in our products.
The short answer is YES! For further explanation, keep reading.
First of all, let's start with the definition of genetically modified or GM. GM refers to the process of directly altering the structure and characteristics of genes. It involves taking the DNA from one organism, manipulating it in a lab, and introducing it into another organism's genome. This type of GMO (organism) is known as a transgenic organism. Plants could be manipulated with the intention of improving flavour or shelf-life, for example, or to be resistant to insects with the intention of improving yields.
While great in theory, there aren't any long-term studies of the impact of genetic modification on the plants themselves, or on humans, animals or the environment. None. There is anecdotal evidence, on the other hand, that GM products aren't harmless. As it stands now, most of the corn we eat and cotton we wear is genetically modified. Soybeans aren't far behind. You might be surprised to learn that most of the Vitamin E used in cosmetics also comes from a GM source. With a world-wide increase in food allergies, there's a strong possibility that playing with the DNA of our food is making us sick. And how do we control it? Seeds from GM crops are blown by the wind and carried by rivers to appear far from the fields in which they were initially planted, with the potential to take over. We're all part of a global experiment that we at rms beauty don't want to contribute to. That's why we chose non-GM ingredients for all of our products.
