Hello, there! My name is Arianna Arguetty. My older brother is one of my greatest role models, and he always stressed that I should be green, for the benefit of the earth and for the benefit of my own body. Because of his influence, I've been buying exclusively nontoxic cosmetics my whole life. But it drove me nuts that nontoxic cosmetics were always so expensive. I didn't want to pay $40 for one lipstick, and I knew plenty of people who couldn't.
A friend of mine, who I have known since high school and who has been in love with makeup since she was little, gave me some tips on how makeup is made. Fueled by that information and my own frustration, I created Roselle Cosmetics to offer an alternative. So people who aren't millionaires don't have to give up on good quality cosmetics.
Hello! My name is Sabrina Bell. Makeup has been an interest of mine for almost my whole life. I used to watch my mom apply it in the mornings before she would go to work and my favorite part of dance recitals when I was younger was being able to wear a little bit of makeup so I wouldn’t look so washed out underneath bright stage lights.
I started wearing makeup regularly in eighth grade. I started with just mascara and now I have many steps in my routine and own more eyeshadow than any person could ever use. I am so excited to be working with Arianna in order to bring affordable, clean, and amazing products to people who are in love with makeup like me or people who are just beginning to use it.
Made from the castor seed, castor oil has many benefits, both for the skin and for consumption. It's a natural moisturizer and promotes the healing of wounds. It is also anti-inflammatory and non-comedogenic. Some people do find it mildly irritating, so if you have any concerns, let us know!
Made from the jojoba seed, it is moisturizing and non-comedogenic. It's also antibacterial, rich in antioxidants, and hypoallergenic. People with skin conditions like eczema often find it particularly soothing.
Mica is a mineral that can be ground so fine that it becomes naturally shimmery. The mining of natural mica, however, is associated with child labor, lung issues, and contaminated supply chains. Synthetic mica is free of those concerns, structurally identical to natural mica and remains biodegradable, plastic-free, and non-toxic.
Candelilla wax is derived from a shrub and often used in place of beeswax to create vegan cosmetics. It's also high in nutrients.
Cocoa butter is also used in some of our products and comes from the cacao tree. It's high in antioxidants, a great moisturizer, and can reduce scarring. It helps our product go on smoother.
