Our favorite green brands.
Good for you. Great for the environment.
Happy Earth Day, everyone! In honor of our favorite planet, we thought we'd introduce you to some of our favorite brands that are committed to providing products that are all natural, and environment friendly!
With over twenty-five years of experience in the organic beauty business, the company has become a respected leader in the world of natural body care. Kiss My Face products contain zero artificial colors, chemicals, or animal ingredients. They are particularly famous for their unique use of olive oil in many of their products. Olive oil has both anti-inflammatory properties, in addition to help soften and smooth the skin. Their Olive Oil Bar Soap is made up of 86% pure olive oil. This simple formula was listed by AM new york as their "best beauty buy" in November of 2008. We also recommend Kiss My Face's Ginger Mango Lip Balm, which is also recommended by Sprig.com, a website dedicated to improving the "greenness" of consumer products. The lip balm is created with paraben-free and organic ingredients such as beeswax and canola oil. Even the packaging is green - it's 100% biodegradable.
The professionals in cosmetics have created a new line of 100% natural makeup. Physician's Formula Organic Wear is the first line of cosmetics in the United States to be certified by ECOCERT, an internationally recognized guarantee that a brand upholds environmentally friendly practices in all aspects of the product. Physician's Formula Organic Wear products are packaged in environmentally friendly containers that contain 93% less plastic than traditional makeup compacts. Their products are free of any unnatural chemicals or preservatives and are paraben-free. We love their 100% organic loose powders, available in beige, translucent light, and creamy natural. We also are in love with their Organic Blush in Rosy. The two shades blend together naturally to create a stunning rosy glow.
Burt's Bees was founded on the principle of being earth friendly, and been dedicated ever since to being "the greenest personal care company on Earth." Not only are their products made from the most natural ingredients, but their packaging is made with environmentally responsible materials. They even created the TerraSkin Wraps, a treeless type of paper that is used to package most of their bar soaps. We recommend trying Burt's Bees Head to Toe Starter Kit, which contains their most popular and best selection of travel sized cleansers, balms, and lotions. We know you'll fall in love with each and every product. Our favorite product right now is their Doctor Res-Q Ointment, a powerful, yet gentle formula that aids in healing cuts and scrapes and contains specific ingredients to prevent scarring.
