It always starts with a dream…

Monave began as a small handcrafting business run out of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The owner, a makeup artist herself, frustrated with the poor quality of the products which were available in the wholesale arena, to purchase for her fledgling business, spent years creating her own formulas from scratch . With determination, talent, and an unwavering commitment to cleaning up the makeup industry, both socio-politically, and literally, she expanded her product range piece by piece, color by color, customer by customer.

As word grew, the line continue to respond to the challenge of meeting the needs of people from every age range, ethnic group, and lifestyle. The company developed its values, as a herald to the revolution in the personal care industry, a revolution of transparency, wellness, and an equitable workplace.

Each product that Monave crafts is made with an intense commitment to ingredient quality, product performance, sustainability, and freshness. Fresh Ingredients are purchased from small, organic farms, and mineral ingredients are child-labor free, and free of irritants and toxins, such as dyes, lakes, and carmine. Radically planet-friendly standards are at the basis of every decision that is made.

Looking for superior mineral makeup formulations created with organic, gluten-free and vegan ingredients?

Each product that Monave crafts is made with an intense commitment to ingredient quality, product performance, sustainability, and freshness. Fresh, organic plant-based  ingredients are purchased from small, organic farms, and mineral ingredients are child-labor free, and free of irritants and petroleum by-products, such as dyes, lakes, and carmine. The owner of Monave is an animal-rights activist. She’s also a celiac, so the facility is 100% gluten-free, as are the products. Radically planet-friendly standards are at the basis of every decision that is made.

The range of products and colors are unparalleled in the natural makeup market. Monave has over 100 shades of vegan eye-shadow, 80 plus shades of vegan lipstick, and gloss, 40 foundation shades, from the fairest to the deepest of complexions, four foundation formulas, from loose powder to nourishing cream foundations, stick concealers, pressed concealers, lip liners, glazes, lip-cremes, eye powders, eye shimmers, eye pastel crayons, handmade eyeliners, shimmers, highlighters, bronzers, ocean-friendly glitters, and more! Monave’s mission of inclusivity, reversing centuries of questionable practices of exclusion in the corporate makeup world, is the driver for the unmatched range of shades for every complexion.

The manufacturing is done without any animal testing at all. The only animal by-product that is used is beeswax, in the potted, and liquid gloss. 95% of Monave products are actually vegan. Paper, glass, and plastics are recycled in the warehouse. Monave hires locally, sources out local suppliers and partners with other ethical companies. Paper and gift-wrap is 100% recycled content  and shipping supplies come from a share program that freely passes on supplies business-business to prevent useless consumption.  The working environment is pleasant, clean, equitable, family-friendly, and honors the personal lives, talents, and accomplishments of its staff.

 

Monave welcomes exchanges with ethnically and health-minded consumers whose values resonate with ours.
