The Products:

Gabriel developed his cosmetics to cater to women at every stage of her life.

Complete with flirty, edgy tones with a mixture of matte and shimmer, Zuzu Luxe is an all-natural, gluten free, vegan cosmetic line that gives a new definition to glamour. The Gabriel Color collection was designed with the discerning woman in mind who tends to choose more conservative, sophisticated styles. This collection is a delicate and refined vegan, gluten free cosmetic line made up of natural, earth tones and beautiful color palettes, which ultimately create mistake proof beauty. Clean Kids Naturally is an all-natural children’s personal care system that includes shampoo, detangler, foaming liquid soap, and bubble bath. Gabriel Cosmetics rounds out the collection with the foundation of the company, Gabriel Organics, USDA certified Organic; a system that harnesses the power of the sea including seaweed, fennel and minerals to create a system designed to regenerate and revitalize the health of the skin.

Mascara Q&A

Do you ever recommend using a primer before applying mascara? Why didn’t you include one in your cosmetic lines?

Most have synthetic fibers that may be harmful to the delicate eye; however I would recommend our Clear Mascara, which coats the lashes and makes them appear fuller.

What are the major benefits with going with an all-natural mascara?

You are avoiding harsh chemicals found in mass-market mascaras. Ours helps promote healthy lash growth from vitamins and herbal extracts instead of mascara with synthetic fibers that just mimic.
