Hello! I’m Sarah Devika, Founder & CEO (Chief Eco Officer) of Urban Minerals, Head Makeup Artist and also a writer & avid world traveller.
Urban Minerals is my collection of luxe Mineral Cosmetics made for multicultural women of all divine and diverse backgrounds. From the beginning, my focus has always been on creating a line of makeup from a place of enviro-integrity; employing vegan, natural and certified organic ingredients in our formulations. What I've done is made luxurious products that work impeccably well and also heal the skin as they accompany you throughout your day.
Early on in life, I learned of the power of Makeup, and have always loved glamour & fashion. In University, I followed my heart and dove into studying the Environment & Culture: Philosophy, Arts, Technology and Education. This academic playground leant considerable weight to my understanding of how human cultures interact with the natural world, and how Mother Nature shapes us in return. The results of those studies were at first optimism, then despair, followed by slowly mustered courage and finally determination to create something anew.
Which brings you to Urban Minerals.
You may think makeup has so little to do with being an environmentalist. But look closer. We locally source every single, whole food ingredient in our signature products, choosing for both form and function. Drawing on the power of 8 herbs that come from Canada, our skin care minded foundations and more are hand made and infused with Reiki. This ties together a local Canadian economy, a reductionist approach to our carbon footprint, and an intuitive understanding of the body & environment, with style.
Beauty is powerful, and a wonderful expression of our soul. When you take the time in the morning with your beauty routine, you indulge in the things that help you feel gorgeous, and by extension, that create the real confidence and charisma that sparkles around you.
That's what Urban Minerals was created for.
As we grow as Women, beauty lovers, nature lovers, and more, we hope you'll join us on this journey of self-care, beautiful natural cosmetics, and nature loving goodness!
Urban Minerals is my ode to Women. Natural, beautiful and made for Us.
