BEHIND THE BRAND
It has been her lifelong passion to bring out a glimpse of the true beauty of anyone who crosses her path. Joanne first embarked on this journey as a young writer. Any free moment was spent sketching pictures or writing poems and short stories about the special people in her life. With a large family of artists in her midst, she learned to appreciate the gift of creativity.
Her greatest joy has been in doing freelance makeup for the past fourteen years. Her drive to illustrate beauty gained momentum when she lost one of the most vibrant and influential forces in her life, her grandmother. After her passing her diaries were uncovered and in them her grandmother described feelings of not being ‘pretty enough’. Yet, throughout her life her grandmother’s presence always lit up a room. That is true beauty…so exquisite it is timeless.
Joanne’s life experiences have led her to believe that feminine charm is not only in the outward appearance; it is in the way one discreetly pleases the soul. HAUT, meaning ‘skin’ in German, has been created in a divine quest to redefine ‘pretty’ as being a colourful reflection of the inner details.

This brush creates the absolute smoothest application of Purifying Primer, 73% Organic Coconut Cream Primer and our new Vegan BB Cream Souffle.
This brush was made with our BB cream texture in mind. It creates a medium coverage in a few short seconds. Using a high quality vegan brush means you can build more coverage where needed and avoid wasting product. The end result is very natural.
Have you ever noticed that we see more imperfections in our skin when we’re under certain types of light? Depending on the type of light or its direction, light can accentuate imperfections or cause shadows to appear, making fine lines more visible. Typically, optical diffusers have been used to hide these imperfections; however they do not achieve the maximum desired results. Polyphenols, when activated by UV rays, absorb light in the invisible spectra (UVA and UVB wavelengths) and emit light in the visible spectra.
This allows us to harness the power of UV rays which typically harm our skin and use them to emit light in the visible spectrum to increase luminescence so skin. Polyphenols and coconut oil together also help to even out skin tone and smooth imperfections while providing antioxidant protection from extrinsic damage. In short, this product exceeded my wildest expectations of what one single product can do. Already, I cannot remember what life was like BBBC (Before bb Cream).
These little gems pack a lot of punch! In them are all the ingredients to prime, hydrate, brighten or tint, provide natural sun protection that is extremely water-resistant and create a beautifully smooth skin tone. Do not under-estimate the importance of the brush. It is to the BB cream what the kabuki brush is to the loose mineral foundation.
VANILLA BEAN BIOFERMENT – active ingredient that acts like an optical brightener absorbing UV light and adding radiance.
ORGANIC COCONUT OIL – for acne treatment, coconut oil is the source of two of the most powerful anti microbial agents found in any food substances. These are Capric Acid and Lauric Acid, also found in mother’s milk because it keeps the baby protected from infections.

This vegan-style kabuki feels ultra soft on the skin and is dense enough to create a full and even coverage of our loose mineral foundation in seconds. It can also be used to blend bronzer around the perimeter of face. For best results wash this brush once a week. Use a gentle, sulphate-free shampoo and rinse until water runs clear. Lay flat to dry.
For application of loose or pressed minerals to create a medium to full coverage in minutes
Use the WORK IT OUT BRUSH and blend bronzer around perimeter of face, concentrating on upper forehead, nose, and cheekbones.
This unique blend of clays keeps skin’s moisture surface perfectly balanced. o Arrowroot speeds healing of breakouts and calms irritation.
Just the right amount of ‘true’ mineral color without the titanium dioxide to avoid the ‘white face’ effect when behind the camera.
After skin has the adequate amount of coverage, these loose pigments are great for sculpting the shape of the face and giving skin a soft, sun-kissed look. They can also be layered with our cream tints on eyes for more intense color.

I have always been hyper-sensitive to synthetic perfumes. There are up to three hundred different chemicals that go into them and most have never been tested on humans. What is worse is that the ingredients do not have to be listed on the packaging. One has no idea what they are spraying onto their skin and inhaling in the air over the course of a lifetime. The scent in this natural flower water is soft and subtle. You can spray into hair, face and body for healthy, balanced skin. I also use this on my hair for the perfect shine, fresh scent and subtle hold
This toning mist is a pretty & natural exotic-type body perfume. It also doubles as a skin-energizing toner for face and body, and a wonderful remedy for re-balancing congested skin. Rose flower water is also known to calm anxiety. Other uses we have found and loved:
plant-based hair shine mist
