There are some fantastic CANADIAN cosmetic companies that are focused on using safe, natural ingredients without compromising the quality of their products. I enjoy buying Made-In-Canada because I prefer our regulations for safety over that on the USA's, even though we're not perfect either. I also love to support Canadian-born businesses.
The first BRAND SPOTLIGHT I have chosen is: Cake Beauty
Cake Beauty is a brand that focuses on making delectable bath and body products. All of their products smell absolutely amazing and are free of parabens, sodium chloride, phthalates, GMO's, mineral oil, petrolatum, gluten and triclosan. They have a wide range of products, from their Milk Made soothing white sugar body scrub, made with whole milk, white sugar, cocoa butter, shea butter and coconut oil, to their absolutely delicious scented hand creams, such as Lemon Chiffon, Cake Walk and It's a Slice, all of which are supremely rich and soothing, but not at all sticky or greasy. All products from Cake Beauty have 90-95% natural ingredients.
all-time favourite, must-have products from Cake Beauty is their dry shampoo! Called "Satin Sugar", their powdered dry shampoo comes in three shades: glistening, which is translucent and illuminating, a shade for lighter hair, and a shade for darker hair. Scented of baked lemon sugar, this dry shampoo adds amazing volume to limp hair. It absorbs grease with ease, and it also leaves your hair smelling lovely! I have been using this dry shampoo since high school and I will never stop loving it! When I had blonde highlights, I would use the shade for lighter coloured hair on my roots to lighten them up in between colour treatments and it was a God send!
Cake beauty does not sell a ton of makeup. They sell lipglosses and balms, which are delicious and safe to use on your lips without worrying about consuming chemicals. However, they mainly focus on hand and body lotions, shower scrubs, and bath and shower treaties.
More reasons to LOVE Cake beauty? Cake products use the bare minimum when it comes to packaging- no excess or secondary packaging for their products! When it comes to manufacturing, 80% of Cake's lotions are cold processed, which means less energy is being consumed when producing Cake's product! This reduces their carbon footprint. Their products are made with 90-95% natural ingredients that are derived from sustainable and renewable resources, and they NEVER test on animals. Importantly, all products from Cake are manufactured in Canada, which means they are supporting their local economy and keeping their carbon footprint low by reducing shipment times for their products.
Any time I have placed an online order with Cake Beauty, I have received prompt and courteous service- they always ship items out quickly and well-packaged. Their products are effective, they smell absolutely gorgeous, and they're good for you! It is a win all around :) If you want to check out Cake Beauty, go to their website. You can order online! They are also sold in Sephora and other independent retailers. They sell very affordable gift sets that are perfect for Christmas or Birthdays!
