Eco Pout intentions

Hello, I’m Tamar and am the owner and hand-maker behind the brand that is Eco Pout Australia. I’m committed to creating beautiful, quality Australian made lipsticks that don’t cost the earth, compromise your health, or the environment in the process.

Eco Pout Australia is a Brisbane based artisan brand, creating quality, vegan non-toxic lipsticks.

It started in 2017 when I accidentally snapped the top off one of my commercially bought lipsticks. Annoyed at the inconvenience (as any woman would understand), I had a sudden urge to start making my own lipsticks and vowed never to buy another one again.

My intention was simply to create a quality lipstick by me for me, so I could control the ingredients, keep them non-toxic, testing them only on me and avoiding the unnecessary use of animal products.

When I used to use commercial lipsticks, I would always find that I would be caught in an infinity loop of lipstick applying addiction. Constantly slathering on lipstick or balm because my pout would be dry without anything on it.

Have you ever experienced that as well? I drink a lot of water and don’t generally have dry skin, so really shouldn’t have been needing to reapply lipstick/balm as much as I was. Whatever was in my commercial lipsticks was actually making my pout dry, despite their claims of ‘moisture and protection plus’. What else was in them that caused this constant need to be layering lipstick like a possessed woman?

Each Eco Pout lipstick is packed full of nourishing natural oils, waxes and butters and infused with the delicate scent of natural organic fruit oils. The mega-moisturising ingredients I use work well to nourish and keep your ‘pout on point’ and protected from the elements.

I genuinely care about the products that myself and others consume and how they impact our health and the environment. I simply try where possible to do my little bit and that’s all any of us can really do at the end of the day.

The goodness within

Eco Pout lipsticks contain a deluxe, vegan, mega-moisturising formula made with some or all of the following quality ingredients:

Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis), Apricot Kernel Oil (Prunus Armeniaca), Castor Oil (Ricinus communis), Meadowfoam Seed Oil (Limnanthes Alba), Macadamia Oil (Macadamia ternifolia), Candelilla Wax (Euphorbia Cerifera), Macadamia Wax (Macadamia Integrifolia), Mango Seed Butter (Mangifera Indica), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Cacao Butter (Theobroma cacao), Avocado Oil (Persea gratissima), Mineral Mica (lip safe cosmetic grade), Iron Oxide (lip safe cosmetic grade), Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Kaolin Clay, Alkanet Root, Natural Organic Fruit Flavour Oil. *Calypso vixen contains: fluorphlogopite mica*.

The aim is to depict as close to the true colour as possible. However, due to the differentiation in screens/variations in natural lighting, actual colours may vary slightly from the images.

Feel free to get in touch with any questions about the colour of any lipstick before purchasing.

Recycle (please): Once you have used your lipstick, please clean out the empty tube as best you can and drop/send it in to your local Biome store who will pop it in their TerraCycle bins and have it sent off for specialist recycling. TerraCycle is changing the way we recycle by sorting out all those ‘hard to know what to do with items’ such as pens, toothpaste tubes and great news for us….cosmetic packaging!

Eco Pout lipsticks contain nut oils and waxes and therefore should be used with caution around those with nut allergies.
