These days it seems like there are a million beauty brands out there promising to buff, tone, cleanse, exfoliate - and pretty much everything in between. But what they don’t tell us is how harmful many of these products can be for our health, and also for the environment. Most big label beauty brands use synthetic ingredients and harsh chemicals that give their products a longer shelf-life and speed-up production. The ingredients do little to actually heal or treat our skin the way we expect them to. For these reasons, natural and organic beauty brands are finally getting the attention they deserve. But make no mistake! This is no trend. Clean beauty is more like a return to the tried-and-true methods that have been used for centuries by men and women all over the world.

Herbivore Botanicals is one of those brands that offers us the non-toxic and highly effective products we want, complete with adorable, recyclable packaging. The company was founded in 2011 by husband and wife team, Alexander Kummerow and Julia Wills. It was in their little Seattle kitchen that the pair began creating natural beauty products free from parabens, sodium laurel sulfate, phthalates, petroleum and animal testing. One of the things that make this brand so special is their attention to detail. Aside from their luxurious products and beautiful eco-friendly packaging, the team only uses ethically-sourced raw natural materials.

Their creations contain the finest plant-based ingredients and essential oils formulated to soothe and treat the skin. Ingredients range from French pink clay to Brazilian gemstones, and combine essential vitamins, minerals and botanicals designed to restore and uncover beautiful skin. Since the launch of their Etsy shop, the brand has blown up. Products like the Blue Clay Spot Treatment Mask and Orchid Facial Oil have won over customers across the globe, and have even made their way into Sephora and Nordstrom. All of this comes as no surprise considering how safe, effective and gorgeous these products are. Clean beauty has never been so easy.
