What are the 5 Best Organic Skin Care Products?
Gone are the days of wool turtlenecks and two pairs of socks. Spring is officially here in Vermont and there is no better time to switch up your skincare routine to accommodate for the long-awaited warm weather. Here at Stowe Kitchen, Bath & Linens, we are big supporters of organic-made products and we always love to support our local vendors who work to produce quality products that we are proud to represent and use ourselves. Below is our selection of some of the best organic skin care products on the market today with links to the ones we sell.
Ursa Major: 4-in-1 Face Tonic - Ursa Major is a locally sourced company, created to promote healthy choices in all areas of life and provide you with a healthy alternative to the "toxin-laden products that pervade today's market" says the company. Ursa Major's 4-in-1 Face Tonic makes our list of the top five organic skincare products. This multi-tasking miracle product works as a cleanser, exfoliator, healer and hydrating toner all in one, leaving the skin feeling soft, hydrated and pampered.
Jurlique: Daily Moisture Balancing Serum - Jurlique products have been a skincare staple at Stowe Kitchen, Bath & Linens, for the past several years for a distinct reason: it's gentle, it works and it caters to every skin type out there. The line comes to us directly from the Adelaide Hills in Australia where anti-aging technologies are combined with organically made products, using the antioxidants that nature provides to create beautiful results, regardless of skin type or concern. The Daily Moisture Balancing Serum (Rose Moisture Plus) is a great place to start when exploring Jurlique's distinct line of products. The Rose-infused collection specifically works best with normal skin types, the most universally effective. The serum slides on beautifully, dissolving in seconds, leaving the skin feeling effortlessly hydrated for a full 12 hours. It works wonderfully underneath your heavier moisturizers and make-up and gives off a subtle rose scent that lasts throughout the day.
Pre De Provence: 100% Pure Argan Oil - Pre De Provence products hail from France where they are formulated from "the purest vegetable oils, rich shea butter and other natural ingredients." Profits from the Argan Oil specifically go to benefit a Moroccan Women's cooperative, Marocavie, working to provide affordable healthcare, decent education and fair living wages to women living in local communities. Deemed "one of nature's most powerful anti-aging antioxidants" on the packaging, this product is known for its significant concentration of Vitamin E and fatty acids which penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin. It's non-greasy formula absorbs quickly and fills in lines before your eyes whilst working to combat the skin dryness that leads to signs of premature aging in the first place. Argan oil is also a multi-use product. You can slather it on your cuticles, hands and problem areas for unbeatably soft skin all over.
Morihata: Binchotan Facial Soap - Made from charcoal powder, the Binchotan Facial Soap from Morihata is a miracle product in a smooth, black bar. Charcoal has a purifying effect on the skin, drawing excess dirt and oil from the pores, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion after only one use. Charcoal has been used for centuries throughout Japan as a natural skin perfector, a gentle and effective exfoliant.
The Naked Bee: Hand & Body Lotion - The Naked Bee products are formulated in the U.S.A with "all of the good stuff, and none of the bad stuff" as their tag line suggests. The line features products free of parabens and dyes, aimed to be a natural and affordable skin care and beauty alternative. Made with the ultra-hydrating and anti-aging Hyaluronic Acid, the Moisturizing Hand and Body Lotion is a must-have product for optimal skin health all year round. Light enough to smooth on in the Summer and deeply moisturizing enough for long Winters in Vermont, the Hand and Body Lotion provides long-lasting hydration and the Orange Blossom Honey scent is always inviting and never overwhelming.
