In September, we broke down the Basics of Green Beauty and took a deep dive into the meaning of "green", "clean" and "natural" when it comes to your favorite skin care brands. Now that winter has arrived we want to share our dry skin must haves.
Lush: Honey I Washed My Hair shampoo Bar
Not only is Lush a Cruelty Free brand but they are on a mission to create more zero waste and vegan products for the cosmetics industry. This shampoo bar replaces three 250ml plastic bottles of liquid shampoo and is a lifesaver for those with dry hair in the winter.
Coco Kind: Oil to Milk Cleanser
Transparency with product ingredients and impact empower those who shop with Coco Kind. Leave a positive impact on the environment and your dry winter skin feeling hydrated with this certified organic cleanser.
Thayers: Unscented Facial Toner
Locally grown ingredients along with cruelty free and vegan ingredients make Thayers one of our favorite skin care brands. Sooth dry skin with this alcohol-free toner for optimized hydration.
Yuzu Soap: Skin Balm
A small business based in the San Francisco Bay area, Yuzu Soap handcrafts each and every product with care and attention. Natural ingredients and plant-based oils make this skin balm a go to favorite.
Ilia: Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40
Even winter skin needs protection from the sun. This tinted SPF hydrates and offers silicone, fragrance and chemical free protection with a natural finish.
Of course, choosing clean + green skin products is important, but it is not the only way we can keep our skin protected! What clothing we wear everyday also affects our skin health, in more ways then one. For example, the conventional cotton industry uses pesticides and toxic processing chemicals to clean and soften it's textiles, and those substances can then be transferred to us! This is why we are committed to using ONLY GOTS certified cotton - free from toxins, irritants, and harsh chemicals. Some of our favorite winter must haves also include the zestt organics Cozy Knit Pocket Scarf for added warmth, comfort, and organic cotton goodness, and our signature Dreamsoft Travel Scarf, your ultimate travel buddy wherever you are!
