Ask Osmosis :: Do Your Bottles Contain Bisphenol-A?

8/21/2012 Osmosis Skincare 0 Comments

Bisphenol-A (BPA) is a controversial chemical that is used to enhance the durability of some plastic products.  BPA is sometimes found in polycaronate plastics with the identification code of 3 or 7.  The use of BPA has recently been the subject of much discussion and research as some studies indicate it may be associated with negative health effects. 

While experts have been unable to come to agreement on "safe" levels for consumer products, The European Union, Canada and the United States have banned BPA use in baby bottles.  At Osmosis, we have chosen not to use BPA.  Most of our bottles are made from Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Resin which is plastic code #1 and is BPA free.  A small number of our bottles are made from plastic code #6, also BPA free.

Be Daring with this Summer Look!

Summer isn't over yet and it's all about looking and feeling fresh!  Light color tones and a healthy radiant glo on your skin scream "Summer Fresh".

Start by using the Osmosis Colour Pressed Base all over for UV sun protection.  Add a touch of bronzer for a sun-kissed look without the damage.

Next, add Age Defying Treatment Concealer to refresh and even out the under-eye areas (TIP:  Applying concealer to the lid will act as an eye shadow base for extra hold!)

Enhance the yelids with a light-to-medium shimmery eye shadow.  All Osmosis Colour Eye Shadow Trios provide a lighter shade to be used as a highlighter.  Accent with the bronzer in the crease of the eye.

Eyeliner is optional but mascara is a must!  Lightly fill in brows to further enhance eye shadow, creating fresh and younger looking eyes.

Gloss!  Gloss!  Gloss! 

Use one or combine two.  Nothing says summer like a juicy lip color. 

Alejandro's Picks:  Aura and Pink Sapphire mixed together for a golden-pink splash!
