What is carmine?

Carmine has several names (carmine; carminic acid; CI75470; cochineal; crimson lake; natural red 4 … ) and is often used in foods, from yogurt to hard candy, and in makeup, especially lip and cheek products. It rates as non-toxic according to the Environmental Working Group’s Skindeep ingredient glossary. Carmine in makeup contributes to its color, often adding vivacious, bold red tones. But—here's the kicker—it comes from bugs. Read more about carmine here and find solace in the fact that Heal Yes! products are ALL carmine-free.
