NATorigin is a multi award winning, hypo-allergenic and natural range formulated for extremely sensitive eyes and skin. Our high performance products are designed to be as gentle as possible through a special production process while sourcing ingredients from natural (minimum 97%) sources.
Most of the range is Vegan approved by the Vegetarian Society, excluding the mascara, pencil eye liners and lipsticks due to beeswax.
The natural and organic label has been created to respect and preserve the environment, rather than to protect our skin and eyes. NATorigin is the first natural range formulated to comply with both the environment and even the most sensitive skin and eyes.
NATorigin's unique production process was developed by pharmacists in France over thirty years ago, in response to their customers with sensitivity to conventional beauty ranges. The range was introduced to the UK by optician James Sutton and his wife Michelle a pharmacist. We regularly saw eye and skin allergies and intolerances and had successfully recommended a sister range. Based in Banbury since 2006, we specialise in nickel and parabens-free cosmetics for dry, sensitive eyes, blepharitis and contact lens wearers.
We are passionate about enabling women who have previously been told or have decided to avoid wearing make up, re-discover their eyes and skin. Many women have waited over ten years to find a mascara they can wear all day or night and this drives us forward. Beauty products free from known chemical allergens and sensitising ingredients allow women looking for a natural yet allergy-free range a solution.
The key is the 'bio-inertia' of the formulations;
ultra-micronisation of all the solid particles down to less than 15µm (60% <5µm) because the cells of the cornea measure 8-18µm
use of non-ionic surface-active agents
exclusive use of natural pigments which are insoluble in water
maintenance of the ocular pH (7.2-7.3) or of the cutaneous pH (5.5)
maintenance of isotonicity for the aqueous products or containing water (300 mOsm)
Carefully selected unique, anti-ageing, naturally sourced ingredients enrich every NATorigin cosmetic or skincare product and are chosen for their action, purity, origin and safety . For example, oily extracts of organic arctic raspberry seeds are;
anti-inflammatory due to their natural vitamin E content
nourishing and hydrating as a result of a high concentration in natural essential fatty acids (omega 3, 6 & 9).
Cellular extract of red seaweed has a high concentration of biologically active silicium, with multiple cell-stimulating, hydrating, softening and purifying properties. This extract develops and improves skin elasticity, radiance and softness.
Jojoba seed oil, sweet almond oil, shea butter and beeswax are emollient and moisturising to enhance the lipid (fatty) layer of healthy skin.
Our ultra-soft micronised face powders, blushers and eyeshadows are made from the allergy-free shells of Argan nuts known to be healing and anti-aging due to extremely high levels of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids.
NATorigin is free from alcohol, chrome, nickel, parabens, petrochemicals and many other synthetic ingredients, synthetic colours, fragrances and preservatives.
