Afterglow Cosmetics – A Case Where Necessity Truly Was the Mother of Invention

You’ve heard it said any number of times that, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” This couldn’t be truer than in the case of http://www.afterglowcosmetics.com organic cosmetics manufacturer Afterglow. Founded in 2004 by Kristin Adams, Afterglow is a new breed of cosmetics manufacturer that is driven by a mission to meld high-fashion with natural, organic mineral cosmetics out of a sense of values that take into account environmental concerns and basic health issues.

Online PR News – 02-July-2009 – – You’ve heard it said any number of times that, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” This couldn’t be truer than in the case of http://www.afterglowcosmetics.com organic cosmetics manufacturer Afterglow. Founded in 2004 by Kristin Adams, Afterglow is a new breed of cosmetics manufacturer that is driven by a mission to meld high-fashion with natural, organic mineral cosmetics out of a sense of values that take into account environmental concerns and basic health issues.

In the case of Afterglow, it all started as a journey to find the right make-up that wouldn’t irritate sensitive skin. Kristin’s entire family suffers with a variety of sensitivity issues ranging from food to cosmetics and even perfume. Her mother was a nutritionist, and so Kristin learned early in life the importance of eating a proper diet that took into consideration all of her various sensitivities. But it wasn’t until she started researching the ingredients that went into making cosmetics that she was able to make the connection. “I started using make-up at an early age to cover up acne,” Kristen explains, “but it seemed to only make my skin feel and look worse.” Using mineral cosmetics that did not contain potentially toxic synthetic compounds or pore-clogging ingredients started making sense to Kristin. Her interest eventually led her to make a gutsy business decision and soon after, Afterglow was born.

Working with a team of creative and committed chemists and industry specialists, Ms. Adams began making cosmetics that were 100% natural and comprised of pharmaceutical grade triple-milled minerals and pigments. The company was also dedicated to producing cruelty free products that were environmentally safe and easy to use. Through the course of her research, Kristin even chose to craft her http://www.afterglowcosmetics.com natural cosmetics as “gluten free” – another case where “necessity was the mother of invention.”

Throughout the process, Ms. Adams has been a tireless advocate for stricter cosmetic safety standards. Most times the full disclosure of the ingredients that make up traditional cosmetics is incomplete due to an FDA loophole allowing for ingredients that comprise less than 1% of the compound’s formulation to be left out of the ingredient list. Also other ingredients can be lumped into categories such as fragrance and/or fruit. To show its commitment to this worthwhile cause, Afterglow donates to several key organizations like the Young Survival Coalition - the only international, non-profit network of breast cancer survivors and supporters dedicated to the concerns and issues that are unique to young women and breast cancer. Afterglow is also a “Compact Signer” for the “Campaign for Safe Cosmetics” sponsored in part by the Breast Cancer Fund.

Afterglow proudly lists every ingredient that is included in their various products. This way everyone can be assured of exactly what goes into every thing manufactured by this forward-thinking company. This focus on full disclosure will help people with obscure allergies and sensitivities make the right decision when buying cosmetics from Afterglow’s extensive line of products.
