Startup: Pure Poppet
Soon to be released, Pure Poppet is a range of natural play makeup for children, developed to be safer for sensitive, young skin.
“Pure Poppet children’s makeup is all about playing, dressing up, creating characters, having heaps of fun and doing it safely”, explains Adelaide based business owner, Georga Holdich. “I’m not saying children need to wear makeup but having two young daughters of my own, I understand how much they love to dress up, try on my shoes and jewellery, role play and use a bit of ‘mummy’s makeup’ every now and then at home”, she adds.
“I try to offer my children safer alternatives where possible but couldn’t find many natural, play makeup options aimed at children, to add to their dressing up games and therefore decided to develop my own kits”, says Georga.
There are no nasty surprises in Pure Poppet products as they are made in Australia from natural ingredients that are safe for precious skin. It is also possible to add a little water to the products and create face paint to really let imaginations run wild. Children can create a bucket load of characters: fairies, princesses, their favourite animals or just add some extra sparkle to their game.
There are plans to extend the Pure Poppet range to include different themed kits and other natural skin care products for children.
The first kit in the Pure Poppet range, retails for $39.95 and will be available to be purchased online at www.purepoppet.com from the end of October or call 0416 211 897 for local stockists.So get the kids to grab their dress ups, some of their friends and use their natural Pure Poppet makeup, to enjoy their own world of make believe.
