In celebration of Earth Day, we’re honoring some of our favorite natural brands. Each is simple in its purity, with natural ingredients that are both gentle and effective, and every one has a story to tell.
Arcona always said, “Color, fragrance and consistency don’t change your skin—live, active ingredients do.” So with the idea that whatever goes onto skin goes into your body, Arcona only uses quality, pure ingredients that penetrate deep into the cellular layers of the skin. In addition, Arcona products contain no petrochemicals, binders or fillers, chemical stabilizers, parabens, sodium lauryl sulphates, perfumes, dyes, or any other caustic, toxic ingredients. Most-known and beloved for its Basic Five, Arcona is committed to professional, effective treatments for every skin type.
This natural and non-toxic skincare line was founded with a passion for South Africa and its land. It was created in 2012 to capture the exceptional beauty and pure floral wealth of Southern Africa, by using the region’s powerful botanicals and minerals. Ingredients such as wild grown African Marula Oil, African green rooibos tea extract, grape seed oil, pure African muti mud, and others, are specially selected for their high antioxidant content, powerful healing attributes and skin regenerating abilities. The line is 100% vegan.
Ilia is dedicated to creating the purest products possible, as each product is filled with certified organic bio-active botanicals that nourish and rejuvenate the skin. After Ilia’s first collection launch of six Tinted Lip Conditioners, founder Sasha Plavsic grew curious about understanding the ingredients. She sought out several chemists and an organic supplier to create an ethical product, and now all Ilia products are made with up to 85% certified organic ingredients.
While all of these brands have natural ingredients, they’re also earth friendly in that all of the packaging is recyclable! So enjoy your Earth Day, and make it beautiful.
