Go Green: Beauty
Friday, October 15, 2010
Another local green goldmine is Farmaesthetics, a tempting range of body and personal care products made from the freshest ingredients like soy oil, witch hazel, cornmeal and more. Farmaethetics are all natural, pure products that founder Brenda Brock holds dear. She began making herbal skincare in her kitchen and is now a worldwide phenomenon. You can try it for yourself at the Newport flagship store or visit them online.
Ava Anderson Non-Toxic
You’ve heard me rave about local Ava Anderson’s Non-Toxic cosmetics and skincare and I will continue to do so. These clean, green products rate a “0” on the Cosmetics Database, meaning they contain no harsh chemicals, carcinogens or irritants found in many other brands. Ava’s message is to educate and inform people about the dangers of toxins in beauty products we use each day. Ingredients like honeysuckle flower extract, lemon oil and bitter orange flower water make this line delicous and nutritious. Enjoy an Ava party in your home or visit their online store.
Minerals, as we have reported, are all the rage but not all mineral makeup is created equal. One brand that stands apart is Jane Iredale, who makes gorgeous mineral makeup that infuses your skin with a healthy glow, naturally. Iredale is a pioneer in the mineral market, specializing in helping physicians and dermatologists find makeup that is healthy for your skin. Iredale’s minerals are anti-inflammatory, non-pore clogging and contain no talc or parabens. See the entire line of mineral makeup at Facing Thayer in Providence.
The name says it all as this brand contains 100% pure ingredients and is also vegan. 100% Pure is a line of body products, skincare, cosmetics and hair care that eliminates toxins, chemicals, thickening agents and the other goo that has no place on our skin or in our bodies. Products are certified organic and contain yummy ingredients like pomegranate seed oil, strawberry extract, vitamin c and sake. Indulge in the whole line, guilt-free, at Ulta in Warwick.
