Tired of feeling like you can’t trust the makeup you apply to your skin every morning? Melissa Poepping certainly felt that way. On this episode of Drop of Inspiration, we’re speaking with Melissa, who started her own mineral makeup line and then sold the idea to Young Living to bring to life your new favorite mineral-based makeup: Savvy Minerals by Young Living ™. She discusses the frustration she used to have with other makeup products and how that inspired her to create Savvy Minerals.

Melissa also shares some fun ideas and inspiration for parents and daughters who are just starting out on the makeup journey. Savvy Minerals makeup is not tested on animals, and many products in the minerals makeup line are cruelty free and vegan friendly, so you can feel confident that you’ll get the highest quality created with standards you can trust.

Plus, Micaela Congino, Young Living product marketing manager over Savvy Minerals, is joining us to answer some of your most frequently asked questions about the new Savvy Minerals line.

    Can we talk about the specific ingredients that are used in popular mineral brands that are not in Savvy, like talc, and why they aren’t in Savvy products. What makes these ingredients not worthy? Thank you! 🙂

    “Savvy Minerals makeup is not tested on animals, and many products in the minerals makeup line are cruelty free and vegan friendly,”… I’m confused by this statement. It says it’s not tested on animals but “many” products are cruelty free and vegan friendly? Which ones are not?

      All Young Living products are cruelty free and are never tested on animals. Thanks for pointing out the confusing phrasing.

    Yes, but do you use any type of animal such as snail in an any of your products?
