Vapour are conscious of the ingredients they use.
They aim to source all their ingredients from organic farms, as they focus heavily on them being minimally processed. This has been shown through their certification with the Organic Trade Association. The OTA’s mission is to promote and protect organic trade to benefit the environment, farmers, the public, and the economy.
It’s also important to note that all of Vapour’s products are free from irradiated, chemical and petroleum ingredients.
Vapour is accredited with Leaping Bunny. This highlights their commitment to not testing on animals. However, despite this certification, they are not a 100% vegan business. This is due to some products containing beeswax and carmine.
Vapour has formed strong charitable partnerships. One of which is defending and protecting fresh waterways in New Mexico where they are based.
It’s important to note that Vapour’s current foundation products have various levels of colour range available. For example, the Soft Focus Foundation has a good range of shades at 19 colours; however, the Luminous Foundation Stick only has 10 colours available.
None of their foundations or concealers currently have disability-friendly packaging. However, their marketing does display a diverse range of ages, skin types and tones.
