Afterglow cosmetics was created in 2004 by Kristin Adams. Kristin’s desire to provide chemical free cosmetics to her family and to the public led to the creation of this all natural, vegan, cruelty free cosmetics line. According to the Afterglow Cosmetics website, the company’s mission is to:
· Formulate with the highest standards of excellence in regards to purity of ingredients and effectiveness of the product, while embracing diversity, by offering a wide color palette for every woman.
· Promote operating and business practices that encourage social responsibility, sustainability, beauty and creativity at every level of the organization.
· Improve the overall quality of women’s lives, by focusing on creating safer cosmetic alternatives that are free of common toxins found in women’s daily beauty routine.
· Continue to use sustainable ingredients and packaging whenever available. The company’s on-going focus is to seek out improvements at every level of the organization that foster a sustainable future and lead to social and environmental change.
