    Cruelty Free!

    Cruelty Free!

     


    Did you know Crambé is a cruelty free product? This means we never have (and never will) use ingredients that have been tested on animals. In fact Crambé is proud to be certified by the Leaping Bunny Program. This program is made up of eight national animal protection groups (The Humane Societies of Canada and the United States, Animal Alliance Of Canada, American Anti-Vivisection Society, Beauty Without Cruelty USA and the Doris Day Animal League) which banded together to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). The CCIC promotes a single comprehensive standard and an internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo. They work with companies to help make shopping for animal-friendly products easier and more trustworthy.
     
    Did you know that neither the U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) nor the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission requires animal testing for cosmetics or household products? There is sufficient safety data, as well as in vitro alternatives already existing which could help to make animal testing obsolete.

    From the beginning, Crambé co-founders, Daniel, Ben and Matt (all huge animal lovers) held firm beliefs that animal testing was wrong. Say hello to the co-founders own cuddly pets, Lou, Penny and Olive.

     

     

     

    Three signs your skin is reacting to seasonal changes.

    Three signs your skin is reacting to seasonal changes.

     

    As we bid farewell to Fall and slide into Winter you might notice how this transition is affecting your skin. The reality is seasonal shifts can cause problems. Simply put, your skin doesn’t enjoy rapid changes in temperature/humidly and going from warmer to cooler weather makes your skin work harder. Here are five signs that your skin might be struggling with this seasonal transition:

    1. Skin feels tight and dry. This is due to colder, dryer air and increased winds, which makes your skin feel uncomfortable and even itchy.
    2. Acne flare-ups. The shift in temperature can cause further inflammation for those with acne-prone skin.
    3. Small cracks in the outer layer can appear. This is due to the loss of humidity in the air and the rapid shift in temperature.

    What can you do to help combat these seasonal outbreaks and help your skin transition to a new season?

    -Reduce the temptation of hot showers, which feel great but leave your skin dry.

    -Increase the humidly in the air by using a humidifier in your bedroom.

    -Use Crambé Face Forward Rejuvenating Facial Oil with anti-inflammatory properties and high levels of fatty acids, vitamins and minerals which deeply penetrate the skin and provide a protective skin barrier to make your skin look and feel it’s best.

    5 Reasons you need you Crambé Face Forward Abyssinian Facial Oil this Summer

    5 Reasons you need you Crambé Face Forward Abyssinian Facial Oil this Summer

    We are not crazy when we tell you to reach for Crambé Face Forward Abyssinian facial oil in the hot, humid summer months, in fact, our oil helps keep your skin protected, hydrated and looking it’s best even when the temperature starts to rise. Let's debunk five myths often associated with using a face oil during the summer.

     

    Myth 1: Adding oil to your face will only make it oilier.

    You may think adding extra oil to your skin (especially in the summer) will only increase the oil that's already there, however, applying a face oil actually helps reduce the over-production of your face’s natural oils (sebum) which can trigger breakouts. 

     

    Myth 2: Your skin doesn’t get dry in the Summer

    Sorry but your skin does get dry in the summer with increased sun exposure and dry air conditioning. These extreme temperature changes can leave your skin feeling like sandpaper.

     

    Myth 3: I can skip a face oil and just use a moisturizer.

    The increased summer humidity can hinder moisturizer absorption into the skin. A face oil absorbs not only easier but penetrates deeper into the dermis delivering more hydration.

     

    Myth 4: SPF delivers all the hydration and skincare I need

    SPF is an essential part of your year-round routine, however, it does not help with the delivery of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids which help combat the free-radicals that we are often exposed to from sun exposure and air pollution.

     

    Myth 5: Face oils feel greasy and heavy on the skin.

    Not all face oils sit heavy on the skin. Crambé Face Forward Abyssinian oil is light and fast-absorbing, leaving your skin looking and feeling it’s best…even in the hot, humid months of summer.

     

    Tip: - Apply Crambé Face Forward Rejuvenating Facial Oil right after you cleanse, but before you apply your SPF.

    Style and Beauty Expert Ingrie Williams

    Style and Beauty Expert Ingrie Williams

    Ingrie Williams is the Beauty & Style Director at Best Health Magazine. It’s not unusual for Ingrie to be jetting off to Paris or New York to discover the latest trends in beauty and fashion or to be styling a celeb photoshoot (yes she styled Megan Markle for the magazine’s cover in 2016) We recently chatted with her to find out her thoughts on skincare, diversity and the best advice she has ever been given.

    How did you get involved in the beauty and fashion industry and what is your favourite part

    I was lucky to get an internship at Glow magazine when it first launched in the early 2000's. I was technically the Marketing Intern, but the team was small. That was a bonus because I was able to make myself available to the fashion and beauty editor and help out with everything that goes into style stories. The best part of my job is discovering amazing new products, talking to the experts (give me the science!) and creating stories that showcase both elements

    What are some of the ways the beauty/skincare industry has changed over the years and has it been for the better?
    Diversity is a trending topic and, obviously, I am here for it. Early 90s moments when WOC were announced as beauty ambassadors for major brands, such as Lana Ogilvie for CoverGirl, made such an impact on me because it was a recognition of an expanded version of beauty. A version I could see myself in. And I felt the same way in 2014 when Lupita Nyong'o was announced as a Lancôme ambassador. There's still plenty of work to be done, but seeing campaigns that include a multiplicity of skin tones, hearing about brands that carry 50 or 100 (!) shades of foundation or spotting more than one WOC on the cover of Vogue in a single year doesn't get old for me –and never will.

    Who is your beauty icon?
    Tracee Ellis Ross is my everything. Her incredible hair, her amazing skin, her joyous, goofy spirit, and, of course, the killer wardrobe. I love all of it. And I particularly appreciate that she's become a household name in her 40s.

    My approach to beauty is…
    A love of rituals. I enjoy taking time each night to do a double cleanse and mist my face before applying a luxurious face oil.

    How do you define beauty?
    The people and things that I find most beautiful tend to have a lightness and optimistic sense to them.

    Best advice ever given to you?
    'Choose your partner, not your path' is one phrase that has stuck with me. There are so many different ways to get wherever you want to go, but who you choose to travel with is the most important part.

    What does the world need more of right now?
    Kindness - it costs you nothing to be nice.

    How do you best take care of yourself both physically, mentally and spiritually?
    Hot yoga challenges me physically, but what I enjoy most is the inner reflection that comes with it. I value that quiet time to create focus, generate creativity and achieve relaxation.

    What do you do to put your best face forward
    I always feel good when I'm wearing a bold lip colour. It communicates a sense of confidence on my behalf.

    Real Talk from Real Mom's

    Real Talk from Real Mom's

    With Mother’s day just around the corner, we wanted to check in with two of the coolest, most stylish mom’s we know. Juliette Lie Baxter and Tracey Ho Lung. Both co-founders of the popular mom blog lovemom.ca
    Both Tracey and Juliette have vast experience working at major women’s magazines—like Flare, FASHION and Chatelaine. On their blog, they present a well-curated point of view and interview real moms and discover what inspires them.



    CRAMBE: You are both busy working moms with deeply rooted backgrounds in the beauty world. What made you start lovemom.ca?

    LOVEMOM (LM): We both had our daughter's around the same time (that was NOT planned) and afterwards we had trouble finding something that we wanted to read — that spoke to us. At the time, we couldn't identify with the mom bloggers who wrote all about their children and whose biggest concern was what craft they were going to do that day, and magazines like Vogue and $5,000 pants no longer were of interest. Where were the stories about cool, stylish moms who still had to deal with careers, and balancing it all? There was really nothing out there, in magazines or online. No inspiration. No wisdom. Being in the fashion and beauty industry, we knew many stylish, working moms, and we realized that those were the stories we wanted to know about. Nobody was talking to them. That's when we decided that it was up to us to share their stories and create our own inspiration.

    What are some of the ways the beauty/skincare industry has changed over the years and has it been for the better?
    LM: The industry is still very exciting. Today, with this wave of organic and all-natural products coming into the market, it's changed the way larger brands create products — sometimes forcing them to think about using sustainable resources and being more environmentally conscious. It's a win-win. The only downside is that with more options, there is more information to wrap your head around.



    Who is your beauty icon?
    LM: Any French woman — Ines De La Fressange, Marion Cotillard...They have a laissez-faire attitude towards beauty which is exactly up our alley. And they're serious about their skincare.

    My approach to beauty is…
    LM: Keep it simple, but still make the effort.

    How do you define beauty?
    LM: It's all relative.

    Best advice ever given to you?
    LM: You need to be happy to do a good job.

    C: What does the world need more of right now?
    LM: Intelligence, acceptance and truth.

    How do you best take care of yourself both physically, mentally and spiritually?
    LM: We try to do something active once or twice a week, and make time for quiet: no kids, no husbands, no guilt.

    What do you do to put your best face forward (find confidence)?
    LM: Literally, great skin and lipstick. Great hair is a bonus.
