World Environment Day

Happy World Environment Day! World Environment Day is a positive awareness day on the 5th of June every year to encourage awareness and action for the protection of our environment... our Mother the Goddess Gaia.
Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life: the primal Mother Earth Goddess. We are in a crucial time on Earth where we must all do our parts in contributing to her healing and benefit, finding a balance between her natural rhythm and our modern day lives.

Here at Eye of Horus Cosmetics, we are supporting the World Environment Day vision by highlighting some simple tips you can do to reuse and revive your old makeup. Along with our ongoing support for Mother Earth Goddess with our sustainable business practices.

1. Extend the life of your old mascara.

 Simply add a few drops of a natural oil into it. You can also sit it in hot water to make it waxier again.

 2. Melt the end part of all your lipsticks to create a new custom shade.

 When you get to the bottom of a few lipsticks, scoop out what’s left with a small knife and melt them together in a large spoon or a microwave. Pour the completed contents into a small container and leave it in the refrigerator to harden.

 3. Fix your broken eye shadows.

 Use a spoon to crush the contents of the palette into a powder and then add rubbing alcohol, stirring to create a paste. Let it sit overnight, allowing the alcohol to evaporate and leaving the powder solid and whole again.

 As a business, we have been working on our sustainable business practices so that we too can do our part in working towards a cleaner and greener future for all beings. Although we aren’t perfect, we are proud of the moves we have made, and our plans we are working on for further positive change.

We send our standard shipping Australian orders out in recyclable cardboard boxes, eliminating the need for any plastic, and we send our international and express online orders out in our new bio-degradable shipping bags.

 • We utilise a composting bin system in our office in which we separate all our food waste for the owners to take home and nourish their organic veggie gardens.

• Our entire range is cruelty free meaning none of our precious Earth animals were harmed in the process of creating or
trialing our products.

 • Our nourishing natural Bio Goddess Lipsticks are packaged in completely bio-degradable packaging and their natural no-nasties formula means they are sustainable and healthy for our planet.

 • All of our range is paraben and harsh chemical free and we have a strong focus for our future products to be of natural and organic formulas with the highest performance possible, meaning even safer cleaner ingredients for the planet and you our beloved customers!

We asked some key sustainable influencers about their thoughts on our brands sustainability...What do you love about our brands sustainability practices?

 Obviously, I love that Eye of Horus is cruelty-free with so many vegan options. Using such natural ingredients to create products that perform so well can be hard to find.

 I think it’s wonderful that Eye of Horus uses sustainable palm oil by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). A lot of people are aware of the concerns with palm oil and it’s great to see brands taking notice of this and taking it into consideration
with their formulas.

 What do you think we could improve on?
