At Axiology, we believe that holistic convictions & buying decisions go hand-in-hand, so we search the globe for the finest vegan ingredients nature provides.
Our remarkably nourishing formula pops with brilliant color—while leaving no trace on the planet.
Organic Avocado Oil and Avocado Butter: Loaded with vitamins, avocados’ nutrient density gives your lips instant rejuvenation and helps cleanse stressed-out skin. Avocado also protects your lips against environmental factors like pollution and smog.
Organic Castor Seed Oil: Our virgin castor oil is cold-pressed, organic, and GMO-free. One of the world’s first medicinal oils, castor oil is loaded with triglycerides and fatty acids, especially ricinoleic acid. This helps inhibit the growth of viruses and molds, keeping Axiology’s natural lipstick bacteria free. Castor seed oil is also a great skin protector and moisturizer.
Orange Essential Oil: We use orange essential oil to soothe irritated and chapped lips, and to make them smell sweet. Orange essential oil is best known for its uplifting properties, helping to calm the mind and allow deep relaxation.
Elderberry Extract: is derived from the purple berries of a small, leafy shrub. Elderberry extract is the natural preservative we use in our lipsticks, allowing us to avoid harmful synthesized preservatives. This amazing extract also helps to resist microbial contamination and control microbial growth, while simultaneously offering antioxidant and conditioning benefits to the skin.
Organic Coconut Oil: Our raw coconut oil is extracted from organic tropical coconuts without the use of chemicals or heat, allowing us to preserve the natural enzymes and vitamins. Coconut oil hydrates, conditions, and softens your lips as it naturally clears away dead skin cells. It’s also known for its natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, which keeps lips healthy and safe.
Organic Candelilla Wax: Our vegan alternative to beeswax, candelilla wax is produced from the wild grown Candelilla shrub. The candelilla shrub grows naturally in Mexico and the Southwestern United States, and benefits your lips by retaining lasting moisture. This keeps both your lips and our natural organic lipstick smooth and supple.
Organic Grapeseed Oil: Our organic, cold-pressed grapeseed oil comes from pressing the seeds of organic grapes. Grapeseed oil is an important source of omega 6 fatty acids and antioxidants that trap free radicals. This beautiful oil also offers shine and gloss to our lipstick, and helps lubricate and moisturize your lips for all-day wear.
Vitamin E. Oil: An antioxidant powerhouse, natural Vitamin E helps protect the skin against free radicals and environmental damage. Vitamin E also strengthens and heals dry, chapped lips.
Mineral Powder Pigments: Axiology believes in using only natural minerals for our colors. These pigments include iron oxides, mica, and titanium dioxide, which derive from the earth and are approved for cosmetic use. Our goal is to avoid all synthetic colors and pigments to produce what we believe is the safest lipstick. Our iron oxides are safely sourced and do not come in nanoparticle form, as nanoparticles have been shown to penetrate cells and the blood stream, and are also harmful to animals.
