We often find in make-up a mineral called Mica which is a colorant. It is also used for its electrical insulating and heat resistance properties
The cosmetic industry mainly sources in India, in the Jharkand region, where its extraction raises ethical problems. In this poor region, where Mica is often the only source of income, it is extracted by children
More than 20,000 children work there in hazardous conditions, with the permanent danger of rock collapse and continuous inhalation of dust. | Terre des Hommes | reports a similar situation in Madagascar with 11,000 children
Thank you to our Amalthea family for warning us on this matter!
We would like to remind you that we have no colorant in our products. We are committed to a safe and sustainable world for Humans and Nature
