Nineteen95 by Marlene Cosmetics is a Ventura County based luxury cosmetics company, founded in 2018. We are committed to providing quality cosmetic products at an affordable price point. Your makeup is a direct representation of your personality, or who you would like to present yourself to everyone else! Makeup is the perfect way to showcase and highlight all of your beautiful traits.
Nineteen95 by Marlene Cosmetics is proud to be Paraben-Free, Gluten-Free-Cruelty-Free and even offer Vegan options (DAZED Metallic Lipstick Collection!). Nineteen95 by Marlene is proud to boast that we are also a cosmetics line made in the USA! We strive to provide better quality and better formulated cosmetics, rather than intensely-chemically created cosmetics because we believe it is absolutely important to take care of one's body, regardless of the use of cosmetics.
Our approach is evident in our products, ranging from including ingredients such as:
Cupuacu Seed Butter, harvested from the Brazilian plant in the rainforest. This seed butter is a prime ingredient in our lip lacquer line that boosts the recovery of moisture and elasticity. It is highly beneficial for dry lips and promotes deep, long lasting hydration
Olive Oil, which provides excellent lubricity and feels smooth on your lips! No more gummy or sticky lipsticks! Olive oil also helps promote collagen and elastin in the skin
Synthetic Beeswax can be found in our DAZED Metallic lipstick collection, making our entire metallic lippie line vegan-friendly!
- Plant-based oils and waxes to create silky smooth formulas
- Natural mineral colorants
- Vitamin E to maintain soft lips and reduce the signs of aging
What are parabens and what does it mean to be paraben-free?
Parabens are often used as a preserving ingredient in most cosmetics - lipsticks, mascaras and the like. Parabens are typically part of a cosmetics' ingredient list in order to halt or prevent the growth of bacteria and mold; an issue that both the brand and the consumer do not want to experience with said product. Parabens that can usually be found on the list of ingredients include methlyparaben, propylparaben,butylparaben and ethylparaben.
Why should we avoid parabens? Although parabens can be found in a broad range of everyday essentials such as lotion, deodorant, hair product, and some foods, the amount is measured and deemed safe by FDA regulations, meaning the percent present in the product is not enough to cause extreme damage. However, extensive use or exposure to parabens can cause hormone disruption. Studies conduct have been found to link this to breast cancer and toxicity to the reproductive system!
Nineteen95 by Marlene Cosmetics contains no ingredients that are categorized as parabens, but rather contain an extensive list of natural-based ingredients.
What are Gluten-Free Cosmetics?
Celiac Disease affects between 2-3 million people in the US and an estimated 20 million people worldwide. This autoimmune disease is known to damage components of the small intestine and can interfere with food nutrients absorption. At this time, there is no particular for celiac disease, but rather precautionary steps those with the disease can take. The biggest precautionary measure is gluten avoidance.
Gluten-free cosmetics are cosmetics that are manufactured without the following: wheat, barley, malt, rye, oat, triticum vulgare, hordeum vulgare, secale cereale, and avena sativa
Nineteen95 by Marlene Cosmetics products are not manufactured with products containing gluten or any gluten-inclusive products.
Nineteen95 by Marlene Cosmetics is proud to boast that we are cruelty-free, meaning we do NOT test on animals nor will we ever.
