ABOUT GAYA COSMETICS
The origin of the name Gaya Cosmetics is Greek, meaning “mother nature”.
The concept is inspired by the earth. All of the brand’s powder form makeup is produced from natural minerals, a gift from mother earth herself.
The Gaya Cosmetics brand stores are also designed in a style that is inspired by earth, using rock designs and earth tone palettes.
The brand is manufactured in Italy, under strict supervision of the company and applicable regulators.
Our secret is our ingredients: 100% minerals, without artificial additives that are commonly used by cosmetics companies to add volume and scent to products, which might irritate the skin (such as fragrance, talc and parabens).
It is our main concern that not only will the product provide a perfect look, but that it will help improve the skin overtime.
Besides the mineral makeup line, Gaya Cosmetics offers a luxurious range of skincare, enriched with minerals, natural oils; plant extracts and gentle acids that help the skin maintain its moisture level, elasticity and health. Examples:
Oils: Avocado oil, sweet almond oil.
Plant extracts: Hamamelis, Aloe Vera, and Chamomile.
Acids: Salicylic acid, Kojic acid and Dead Sea salt.
We do not test on animals and does not support animal testing. Our products are cruelty free and do not contain animal derived components (our lipstick and lip-balm contain beeswax which can be considered by vegans as an animal derived component).
Our skincare products contain very gentle stabilizers and fragrance. That means they are NOT 100% natural.
