Are your makeup brushes contributing to acne breakouts?
Portland-based Alima Pure cosmetic brushes (available at Blooming Moon) are made with Taklon, a synthetic fiber more hygienic than animal hair brushes.
Natural hair has an irregular surface trapping dead skin cells, cosmetics and bacteria– ironically, harsher disinfectants are required to prevent skin irritation. Taklon fiber lacks this surface irregularity, making Alima’s brushes easier to clean– keeping your skin cleaner as well.
BONUS: Because Taklon is synthetic, animal cruelty is not an issue!
Blooming Moon Spa, located in North Portland’s Overlook Village, carries Alima Pure’s mineral makeup and Taklon foundation, eye and blush brushes. We are open Tuesday through Sunday 10am to 8pm at 1920 N. Killingsworth St. Call ahead to schedule a free makeup consultation with one of our expert “green” makeup artists for a personalized foundation and brush match.
