being green

Kermit the Frog once said, "it's no easy being green". well, in this moment, more than ever, it is very easy to be green. (of course, i know he wasn't talking about the environment, but i needed an intro...)

many cosmetic companies have taking the bull by the horns, so to speak, and have reformulated products to be healthier for us as consumers. and there are companies who have always been about natural ingredients, never backing away from the belief that product don't need to be loaded with chemicals to work.

The Body Shop was founded in the UK in 1976 by Dame Anita Roddick, and now has over 2,100 stores in 55 countries, with a range of over 1,200 products, all animal cruelty free, and many with fairly traded natural ingredients.

As the name would imply, Juice Beauty prefers to do things the natural way. using certified organic ingredients in their paraben-, fragrance-, and petroleum-free formulas; this line is a trailblazer in a category that's gaining serious momentum—organic beauty. Juice Beauty gets your skin glowing while leaving you with peace of mind.

Carol's Daughter was founded in a kitchen in Brooklyn, New York. creator Lisa Price's homemade concoctions have become staples on the shelves of celebrity bathrooms. now thirteen years later, Price continues to deliver down home treatments to enhance your life and well being by providing the sweetest and most luxurious products, all made from the heart - naturally.

LAVANILA can undoubtedly be considered a fragrance revolution. breaking beauty boundaries with the world's premier healthy fragrance, LAVANILA is the first to fuse luxury fragrance with natural science. their sensual vanilla blends captivate the senses and nurture the skin thanks to an infusion with everything that's good for you and a healthy dose of pure essential oils, active botanicals, and antioxidants.

pamper your strands with Phyto. greek for 'derived from plants,' the brand merges active plant botanicals with modern science for wholesome formulas that travel to the root (literally) of the problem to snap hair back to its healthiest condition. packed in 100 percent recyclable containers, these products bring eco-friendly hair care to a shower near you.

with all these brands, and many more, available to us, we can be confident that natural beauty isn't hard to achieve.
