With beauty trends predicting a big return to colour cosmetics post pandemic and spiralling demand for plant-based skincare, 2022 looks set to be the year of growth for botanical makeup.
And right on cue at Formula Botanica, we are launching our first, botanical makeup mini course as this podcast airs.
Behind the scenes, our in-house formulation team led by cosmetic chemist Rouah Al-Wakeel has experimented with botanical pigments for years and has now perfected a range of luscious lipsticks coloured only with plant pigments.
To celebrate this breakthrough, we are running a Mini Lab on Natural Lipstick Formulation in our exclusive, members-only site The Lab at Formula Botanica.
In this episode, Rouah joins podcast host Formula Botanica CEO Lorraine Dallmeier to talk us through the facts, fun and challenges of formulating with plant pigments.
They may take time to get to know, but botanical pigments can open up a whole new market for formulators keen to get ahead and get an edge in the natural makeup niche.
Listen in to find out why Rouah's favourite lipstick colour is now red radish.
