Woman making heart symbol with fingers while looking at camera

What’s the difference between Vegan and Cruelty Free?

It is 2020 and animal cruelty should be non-negotiable! Not testing on animals is something we’re fully behind. And if the products are vegan, even better. It might have all started with food, but what was once a niche lifestyle is becoming the mass and more mainstream as people take steps to save our dying planet. Every little bit counts as they say. Today the beauty industry is catering to a ‘woke’ generation and the options when it comes to...

Scalp care: How and why looking after your scalp is important

We are all fully aware of the benefits of looking after your skin, and it’s safe to assume that we would all like to have healthy hair. To achieve that lust-worthy look for your locks, one must start with a healthy scalp. THE WHY Poor scalp health can lead to visible signs including build-up, flaking, and irritation, and if not treated, over time, it can weaken and damage the hair follicle, which will then lead to breakage and unhealthy hair regrowth....

Easy ways to get that all-natural glow-up

In recent years more and more of us have been investing in skincare over foundation, haircare over styling products, and opting for a more natural look. The #YOUDOYOU and #NOMAKEUPSELFIE hashtags began trending. And then the pandemic happened… Now, even more so, we are moving away from glam makeup tutorials and want to feel and look the best we can in our ‘own’ skin. Many months this year were spent without even a single application of mascara – and what...

Should you be using Sulfate-free hair products?

‘Sulfate-free’ seems to be an increasingly widespread term in the haircare world, and you’ll often find this claim on high-end and professional haircare brands, but what does it actually mean? We investigate – should we be avoiding sulfates, and if so, why? What are sulfates? Sulfates are essentially cleansing agents often found in household detergents and personal care products, the most popular of which are sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), ammonium lauryl sulfate (ALS), and sodium laureth sulfate (SLES). Sulfates are made from...

Weird but wonderful skincare ingredients to know

Beauty enthusiasts are no strangers to unconventional ingredients. Every few years it seems a new scientific finding pushes the use of a new component into the spotlight. Some pass the test and become household names – looking at you, retinol – whereas others fall to the side lines, revealing their fad-like properties. What we find at Powder, however, is that some of the most peculiar ingredients in skincare today are wildly beneficial and not really as ridiculous as they seem… Snail...

Which ‘clean’ products are worth the splurge?

There has been no greater time for selfcare and wellbeing than in the last few of months. From food and supplements to the beauty products we slather onto our skin, everyone is paying attention. When it comes to beauty, not all things non-toxic and clean have to rack up your beauty bill or be overly complicated. Luxuriously-formulated clean, vegan and cruelty-free products are more available and accessible than ever before. That said, it can be overwhelming when you are trying...
