Cosmetics make up 40% of the overall beauty industry, yet many larger corporations have been sited for use of harmful toxins in personal care products. LaMonique Cosmetics is an all inclusive health conscious company producing innocuous beauty products, without sacrificing quality. Launched by a Bronx native and former cosmetic product tester, Monique Glover attended an annual supplier’s day event hosted by the New York Chemist Society and met chemists that she partnered with to create her products. Monique says, “As a survivor of domestic violence, cosmetics have lifted my spirits and improved my self esteem. During my quest to find products avoiding sensitive skin breakouts, I learned that many brands contain toxic chemicals. I wanted to create a brand without harsh additives.” Many companies that claim to offer paraben-free products use other harmful preservatives. LaMonique Cosmetics does not use alternative toxins. The Bomb Balm-lip balm can be used alone or as a primer to soften the lips for lipstick. The natural titanium dioxide works as a great sunscreen protector and concealer can be used by older women trying to cover up sun spots, rosacea or by professional actors/actresses covering up tattoos and other skin markings.
