The inception of Pyra Beauty started in a salt mine in Zipaquira, Colombia, where the founder, Angelica Romero, came to the realization of how much nature can give us. Since then, she has created beauty products that protect the planet through sustainable packaging and plant-based ingredients. This vegan illuminator, for instance, is an example of her commitment to clean skincare. It is infused with coconut oil extracts, and it aims at giving any skin tone a luminous golden glow. The packaging is small and compact enough for on-the-go and to definitely fit in a stocking (so add a couple in)!
