MEET METALA: THE FACE BEHIND VEGAN FACES
While face painting at a summer street party; Metala became aware of the disappointment a child with eczema has to face when they cannot have their face painted.
She spent months searching for a natural, skin-friendly alternative to the commercial brand face paints and being vegan; it was important that they were cruelty-free too.
“pioneers of the first vegan face paint”
In 2011, with the aim to make skin-friendly, vegan products more widely available; Metala produced the first known vegan alternative to commercial brand face paints and Vegan Faces quickly became known as ‘Pioneers of the first vegan face paint’.
Many face paints contain lanolin, an animal bi-product derived from sheep wool which can cause irritation to sensitive skin, but Vegan Faces lanolin and beeswax free formula is gentle enough for those with sensitive skin.
Vegan Faces quickly gained exposure featuring on BBC One’s Young Apprentice and a Universal Pictures promotional video in 2012, winning a VegFest ‘Best Beauty Product’ award and featuring in TUSH magazine fashion pages in 2013 and Diva Magazine’s ‘Brand of the month’ feature in 2015.
Vegan Faces face paints are produced by professional, certified cruelty-free cosmetics manufacturers using only the finest minerals, plant extracts and organic oils, all of which have been registered with The Vegan Society.
