Karin Hunkel: My initially mission to produce mineral powder as make-up was based on the fact that I couldn't stand cream make-up myself. At that time I wasn't aware that it was mainly due to the ingredients mineral oil and glycerine. But there was also something very good about this intolerance, because it led me to natural cosmetics and the need to produce pure natural products myself.
The next initiator was when I learned that most super fine brushes are made from animal hair, mainly squirrel tails. This idea was so horrible for me that I decided to offer vegan products without exception. The mineral powders were "naturally vegan" and everything else - brushes, mascara, lipsticks and the like - should be too.
Founding a company for make-up products in the huge cosmetics jungle was not originally on my mind at all. I just wanted to offer my "color women" products, which I had trained myself, for their customers and for themselves. In the meantime I have placed myself on the market with my brand ANGEL MINERALS by Karin Hunkel and I am very happy with it. We will continue to work on our position on the sustainability of products and packaging. Our certified powders are sustainable in themselves because they are naturally very economical to use, last indefinitely and do not have to be artificially supported in their shelf life. In addition, they are won without child labor and without animal suffering. We consistently do without palm oil in our liquid products. Aluminum does not appear in our products, nor is it packed or sealed with it. Some of the plastic jars that still exist are being increasingly reduced in favor of glass, paper refills and paper jars.
This is my personal mission: With everything I do privately and commercially, I try my best to protect nature, the environment and animals as best I can. I respect people, opinions and social beliefs that are good for the planet and for all living beings. I want to act from the heart and only sell things that I use or would use myself. Whatever we can do for people, animals and nature - we do our best.
From my heart
