Tell us about your company
Be Natural Cosmetics is an all natural, professional-grade cosmetics line, that has everything for your makeup needs. We stand proud in being paraben- and toxin-free, vegan, cruelty-free(never testing on animals, and also on PETA's recommended beauty brand list), as well as gluten-free. Be Natural Cosmetics is great for every skin type, whether you have normal, sensitive, combination, oily or even acnegenic skin. The ingredients within our products help to soothe and heal your skin and improve it over time.
 
What are the challenges of being sustainable/eco in your field? 
Thankfully our ingredients are the purest, but also are not cheap. But to me, a slightly higher investment(not really if you look at all the big name brands that are chemically laden and their costs)- is well worth it in the long run, because your health is priceless.

In what way does your product stand out from the pack? 
Be Natural Cosmetics is all natural, and professional-grade. You can be assured with the quality, and makeup artists can rest assured with the amazing results they will find using Be Natural Cosmetics. That, plus it is vegan, cruelty-free, pure in ingredients that are beneficial to your skin and body, gluten-free, eco-friendly, and rich in quality.
 
What other plans and initiatives do you have/ what can we expect from you in the future?
We are currently phasing out our current lipsticks and lipglosses that have beeswax, hence technically they are not vegan, and replacing them with amazing new lipsticks and lipglosses. Also in addition, we are adding lipliners, mascara, and great new concealers. All of which are great for the skin, natural, and now almost 100% organic!
 
Where can people get your products?
Be Natural Cosmetics are available on our online boutique at www.shopbenatural.com We are considering being placed in salons as we have been approached by several of them.

The first and only washable menstrual panty is now available in Kickstarter!

Los Angeles, CA (October 11, 2014) -

Social-conscious creative firm Padkix Design Lab has released its brand new product LEAK FREE Panties on Kickstarter. It's the first and only washable menstrual panty that uses bamboo microfiber as an absorbing agent. Its game changing patent pending innovation is 3-4x more effective than a regular disposable pad.

"The softest pair of underwear ever, the bamboo makes you feel secure and comfortable" - Nicole Guibord, Los Angeles-based fashion model
LEAK FREE's natural and chemical free bamboo microfiber is 100% biodegradable. It keeps skin comfortable, rather than sticky, in hot weather. The thermal regulating fabric stays 2-3 degrees cooler in hot temperatures and 2-3 degrees warmer in cold temperatures. It also contains an anti-microbial agent that prevents bacteria from cultivating. Making it not only more effective in absorbing menstruation than regular disposable pad, it's also a healthier choice.

"Our mission is to provide women a money saving, eco-friendly alternative to disposable pads and tampons. We are also committed in helping girls around the world by pledging 1 LEAK FREE panty for every 1 purchase of our backers" - Amparo Maru, Lead Designer
Leak Free's 1 to 1 campaign is inspired by a common global problem that needs attention. Without santiray pads, adolescent girls from other countries miss school every month. With LEAK FREE, they would have something more permanent than disposable pads. This vision would not only help girls around the world, it would also expedite Leak Free's mission of reducing trash on landfills by replacing disposable pads.

Socially conscious, evironmentally friendly, and innovative problem solver. Leak Free advocates that it's not just about feeling free, it's also about sharing that feeling.
 
ABOUT Padkix Design Lab:

A team of fashion designers and product developers who have been working with for-profit and non-profit organizations in Los Angeles, CA is dedicated to create products that solves problmens and serve the underprivileged.
