BEAUTY 

ethically sourced - sustainable - quality

When choosing what beauty brands to carry, our first priority is ingredients. What we put on our bodies is just as important as what we put in our bodies. We want to support brands that are using natural ingredients that are cruelty free and vegan as much as possible. Our next priority when choosing beauty brands is packaging. Unlike clothing and accessories, all skincare and beauty products have to come in packaging. So in order to minimize the waste caused by packaging, we have chosen brands that utilize either recycled, compostable, or reusable packaging. 

  Eminence Organic Skincare 

Hungary

Eminence has been creating skincare since 1958, using sustainable farming and green practices to create natural, organic and Biodynamic® products. They believe in providing the best skin care products possible. Their products are proudly free of parabens, animal by-products, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, harmful colorants and fragrances, mineral oils, petroleum, and other harsh cosmetic chemicals.

  Earth tu Face 

Oakland, CA

Founded by Sarah Buscho and Marina Storm in their California kitchen and herbal garden. 

 

In 2010 Earth tu Face began with two herbalists, a garden, and focus on creating a purely plant-based 100% natural skincare line, free of toxins or synthetic compounds. They have grown their skincare line from the ground up, intentionally choosing plants that heal, restore and rejuvenate skin cells. They believe that you should never put on your skin what you wouldn't put in your mouth.

Every ingredient that they include in our products is there for a specific therapeutic reason. They do not use fillers of any kind, meaning every ingredient in our products is an “active” ingredient.  All of their formulas are original, created and tested by them, on real people — never on animals. They are the best of the best. All of their products are made from organic, high quality, and food-grade ingredients sourced by personally with the best natural compounds the earth has to offer. Earth tu Face formulates their products to be concentrated and have a long life (average is 3.5 years).

All of Earth tu Face's packaging is compostable or reusable.

  AUCTIV Sunscreen
