Living in the city can be busy and stressful. Velvette brings the comfort and beauty of nature back to our urban lifestyles in a seamless way.
We’ve designed each of our products with your vanity table in mind, adding a touch of whimsicality and elegance without compromising on our love for all things natural!
As Aristolte once said, "In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous." Let's embrace the wonders of nature!
Eliminate Harmful & Filler Ingredients
Silicones, parabens, sulphates, toxins... These are all things commonly found in beauty products in the marketplace.
Often found in many "oil blends" are silicones, most commonly in the form of "cyclopentasiloxane", which create temporary smoothness, but are a form of synthetic plastic with a waxy texture. These silicones will initially create an illusion of smooth skin and hair, but they are hard to wash out and provide zero nutritional value. With prolonged use, your skin will feel clogged and your hair will feel weighed down!
We've already covered silicones above, but what about the rest? Parabens are often used as a preservative and have been known to act as a weak estrogen in the body, potentially leading to cancer. Sulphates have been linked to organ toxicity and are irritating to the skin. Toxins can disturb cell function, ranging from minor effects to cell death. These are only a few of the multitude of dangerous substances that are often used in beauty products.
By using only natural and organic ingredients, you can be assured of the safety of our products. Even our fragrances are created from essential oils which provide further benefits to our bodies.
Luxury at an Approachable Cost
Our products last very long - don't be fooled by the small bottle sizes! Because we don't use filler ingredients, so one drop of product can go a long way.
Unlike other oil blends in the market, our oil blends contain significantly higher percentages of premium, high cost oils. Many oil formulations on the market are comprised mostly of harmful chemicals like silicones, or cheap filler oils like soybean and mineral oils. The resulting products often contain only tiny tiny quantities of the premium exotic oil advertised on the cover, of which lends little to the effectiveness of the product. Shockingly, many of the "oil blends" on the market contain less than 10% natural plant oils!
At Velvette, we were frustrated with the status quo and chose to use unique plant oil bases for each of our products, which is why many of our products are different in color. Some of the oils we use for our main bases include baobab, argan and even hemp oil! These oil types are often found only in super high-end products, and at lower concentrations than our formulations.
Luxury beauty products often come at an inflated price, with most of the product cost spent on marketing and overhead from dealing with third party intermediaries. We are committed to keeping our costs as approachable as possible, without compromising on the quality of our product.
