Emani Vegan Cosmetics
The Emani cosmetic line has been created by professional makeup artist Michelle Doan and a collaborative team comprised of ecology friendly chemists, aestheticians and dermatologists who understand the core function and needs of the skin. Emani Vegan Cosmetics protect the skin from daily UV rays, free radicals and daily pollutants. All Emani mineral-based cosmetics are free of preservatives, talc, oil, waxes, fragrances, and other chemicals that can irritate skin and cause breakouts.
The brand is dedicated to developing and distributing certified vegan and natural, skin friendly cosmetics in a wide array of colours which exceed the standards of the professional makeup industry yet remain affordable for everyday use.
Emani Vegan Cosmetics was established 20 years ago and all products are made in California. The range was originally formulated for professional use and offers high performance natural make up that is clinically approved for sensitive skin. The innovative products also function like skincare and are formulated with natural and skin boosting nutrients like hyaluronic acid and vitamin C to support skin health.
Emani cosmetics are the result of a transformational journey of its founder Michelle Doan. Michelle suffered from cystic acne and sensitive skin her entire life. After trying various treatment programs and different types of make-up to cover her problematic skin, her condition only worsened.
As a professional make-up artist and frustrated with the way mainstream cosmetics only exacerbated her skin issues, Michelle set out to create a line of clean, glamorous make-up suitable for even the most discriminating and sensitive skin types. All products are formulated with natural and organic ingredients and includes skin boosting nutrients like hyaluronic acid and vitamin C to support skin health.
Today , Emani is selected as the natural make up of choice for many celebrities as it is ideal for all skin types and suitable for the most sensitive skin too. In fact, Emani features on set for top shows like Scandal and Agents of Shield and was worn on the red carpet by leading ladies including Gal Gadot and Lynda Parker at the Wonder Woman premiere. Emani works with an enviable list of celebrity make up artists who solely use the Emani range as they are entirely non-comedogenic and appropriate for all skin types.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What kind of sun protection does Emani makeup offer?
Due to the the high concentration of titanium dioxide in our foundation, our makeup provides natural, physical blockage of the sun's harmful UV rays with the equivalent of SPF20 protection. Emani recommend that you always use sunscreen before applying your makeup to maximize your protection.
Have any of your products been tested on animals?
Absolutely not! Emani is certified by PETA, and Emani products have never been tested on animals, nor will they be.
Does your makeup work well in hot or humid weather? What about cold weather?
Whether you live in the humid climate of Florida, the dry heat of Arizona, or the cold weather of England, Emani makeup will work perfectly to beautify, protect, and nourish your skin. Emani products have been tested in extreme climates and demonstrated to work flawlessly regardless of the weather. They have clients all over the world to attest to it!
How does Emani makeup work on acne-prone and problematic skin types?
While many cosmetics companies use ingredients that lead to breakouts or irritate sensitive, acne-prone skin, Emani's unique formulas will not clog pores or worsen the condition of problematic skin types. Composed of soothing, non-comedogenic ingredients that balance the skin rather than irritate it, Emani makeup is ideal for oily, acneic skin. Just ask Michelle Doan, the founder of Emani Vegan Cosmetics who started the brand after her struggle with cystic acne and the inability to find makeup that worked without irritating her skin or causing breakouts.
Are Emani foundations suitable for older, aging skin?
In a word - YES! Emani uses soft, reflective, and light diffusing ingredients that obscure fine lines and wrinkles and fill in creases so your skin looks smooth, healthy, and youthful. Additionally, Emani makeup helps to protect the skin from extrinsic factors that cause aging. If you have dry skin, try Emani HydraWear Liquid Foundation. Rich in organic oils, the nourishing foundation gives the skin a soft, hydrated, dewy finish while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Are the powders drying?
While many makeup manufacturers use inexpensive talc, which dries up on the skin and dulls the appearance of makeup, Emani Pressed Foundation and Crushed Foundations are talc-free. These formulas stay fresh all day and will not dry out your complexion. If you suffer from dry skin, try Emani Liquid Foundation. This moisturizing formula gives the skin a soft, dewy finish that lasts all day.
How is Emani makeup different from other brands?
It's all about the ingredients. Emani uses only top-quality ingredients. While our ingredients lists are shorter, they include only the most effective components to give you high quality makeup without causing irritation. Emani makeup is free of harsh chemicals, dyes, and parabens, all of which are known to negatively affect your skin and overall health. Emani makeup creates a breathable barrier on your skin, protecting it from UVA/UVB rays and environmental pollutants while giving it a natural, radiant finish.
Do I need to use a moisturizer with Emani makeup?
Although Emani Vegan Cosmetics products are good for your skin, they recommend that you use a moisturizer every morning and night. Apply moisturizer with SPF protections prior to makeup application, and allow it to completely absorb. Not only will a moisturizer allow improved adhesion of Emani makeup for longer wear, but Emani makeup will lock in the moisture for lasting benefits by creating a physical barrier on your skin. If you're looking for increased moisture, try Emani Primer and Serum which not only prepares your skin for flawless makeup application, but also nourish and protects it hyaluronic acid and antioxidants in the process.
Can I use Emani makeup after laser treatments, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels?
Emani foundations and makeup may be applied to the skin after the above procedures. In fact, it is encouraged. It is important that post-treatment skin is well protected from the sun and environmental elements. The gentle formulas in Emani products will not irritate sensitive, post-treatment skin and will aid in protecting it from the elements. As always, consult with your skin care professional in these cases to ensure you're taking care of your skin the best way possible.
What coloring agents are used in Emani makeup?
Each rich, gorgeous shade in Emani makeup comes from minerals including iron oxides, titanium dioxide, and mica. They do not use FD&C (petroleum based) dyes, which irritate the sensitive skin around the eyes and have been known to clog pores and cause breakouts.
Does Emani use preservatives?
The only preservatives in Emani products occur naturally. Emani does not use parabens or other fillers to preserve our products due to their potential to irritate the skin and their linkage with health problems.
Are Emani foundations heavy?
Emani foundations are lightweight and breathable, providing superior, weightless coverage that looks natural and feels amazing. Emani clients are consistently amazed at how light and airy their skin feels after applying Emani makeup.
How long does Emani makeup last after application?
When applied correctly, Emani makeup lasts all day. It will not crease, smear, settle in lines, or clump around blemishes like other, less advanced liquid makeup. Apply over a moisturizer or Emani Primer Serum, and set using Emani Setting Powder for maximized length of wear.
How does your makeup respond to different kinds of skin types?
Emani makeup includes natural silicones, oils, and moisturizers to lock moisture into the skin without clogging pores or irritating the skin. Regardless of your skin type, condition, or age, Emani provides an enhanced appearance that looks and feels healthy.
Are your products gluten free?
YES! All Emani Vegan Cosmetics products are gluten-free.
