We have something to tell you...
Founder of Ella Rose Minerals/ iamgreenminded.com, Natural Scientist, Artist, Auntie to the most adorable nieces and nephews. "My friends & family call me the girly mad-scientist, I believe in combining Science and Nature to formulate the best makeup for your skin. I formulate with ingredients that register as a zero on the Comedogenicity scale to ensure flawless skin." -- Mary Ellen Mary Ellen has used her allergy challenges to the advantage of herself and her customers. She could not even wear basic, traditional eye shadow as it gave her a rash and would puff her eye lids. Liquid makeup broke out her face badly with acne. Lipstick made her lips peel, creating discomfort and making her lips beet red, as if she had a severe sunburn. She said, "I didn't need makeup, really, but I wanted it (what woman doesn't?)".
Mary Ellen developed the base of our products for herself, out of sheer necessity. She knows what its like to have allergenic and sensitive skin, and the Comedogenicity scale is key. Since the research and development started, iamgreenminded.com evolved from a necessity for herself, to a science-driven product brand.
All of iamgreenminded.com ingredients register as 0 on the Comedogenicity scale! Comedogenicity is rated on a scale between 0-5, the lower the number the less likely that the ingredient used will clog your pores. We are natural scientists first and foremost at iamgreenminded.com.
We want your makeup to look flawless and be good for you as well! All mineral make-up is not created equal. It’s not just the natural and beneficial ingredients that make our formulas different; it’s the ratio of how we put the ingredients together and how they perform on your skin.
