Organic and natural beauty brands are popping up faster than you can say “paraben free” lately. Consumers want more products that are free of nastiness and synthetic chemicals. And companies are obliging, in droves.
Beecology: Yup, honey shows up in all the products.
Éminence Organic Skin Care: This is a spa line that has a dizzying array of products.
LEAP Organics: LEAP is the newest company in this list, having launched their line of bar soaps in summer 2010. They’ve now added skin care--a cleanser, exfoliating face wash, toner, and face lotion--to their arsenal and scored full USDA organic certification. Like Beecology, they have a charitable arm. 3% of annual revenues goes to global environmental charities. The packaging is whimsical and features colorful artwork depicting exotic animals like parrots and butterflies.
Full disclosure: I haven’t been able to get my hands on samples to try, but initial reviews seem promising.
