Natural skincare is all the rage right now. There are so many brands that market themselves as all natural that it can be hard to know which ones to trust. Viva has rounded up our top 4 favourites that you can easily find at your local Sephora or online.
1. TATA HARPER
This 100% all natural skincare brand calls the Champlain Valley in Vermont home. The Harper family owns a 1,200-acre farm and grows about 40 plant varieties – including arnica, calendula, lemon balm, lavender, and alfalfa. Their homegrown extracts are locally produced into their luxurious products.
Tata Harper’s Purifying Mask is a triple threat – made without GMOs or gluten and is cruelty-free. The mask contains 5 potent herbs, Arnica montana, calendula, borage, meadowsweet, and alfalfa to supply the skin with plenty of oxygen and vitamins.
In 1993, college sweethearts Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas discovered the natural antioxidant powers of the grapevine while working summer jobs at a family winery in Bordeaux. From there they were inspired to develop Caudalie, a luxury skincare line rooted in vinotherapy which uses stabilized grape seed polyphenols to create powerful anti-aging formulas.
The Beauty Elixir is their most popular product. Inspired by Queen Isabelle of Hungary’s famous elixir of youth, this toner contains rosemary, astringent mint, and rose essential oil to give your skin a much-needed radiance boost. The Beauty Elixir can be used as a serum before applying moisturizer, as a makeup setting spray, or you can use a quick spritz anytime you’re feeling a little dull.
Farmacy founder Mark Veeder collaborated with local farmers and cosmetic experts to produce a line of skincare products that are suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
Farmacy’s Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer with Echinacea GreenEnvy™ is perfect for those of us with dull, uneven skin. This lightweight “water cream” is made with honey, hyaluronic acid, and cupuaçuu butter beads to keep your skin soft all day. Farmacy’s specially formulated Echinacea GreenEnvy™ Honey is filled with powerful antioxidants made by the bees on Farmacy’s own farm. Not to mention this moisturizer is cruelty-free and made without formaldehydes!
Kiana Cabell, the Hawaiian-born co-founder and a certified organic chef, created Kopari beauty with coconuts at the heart of its healthy philosophy. Kopari uses only the highest-grade coconut oil to create their all natural products. They are against parabens and sulfates too so you know their products are as nourishing as can be.
Kopari’s Coconut Lip Love lip balm is filled with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that sooth and hydrate lips. It is also formulated with a smoothing emollient that mimics the naturally occurring omega fatty acids in the skin so lips stay smooth all day long.
