The skincare superhero
Tata Harper is something of a beauty-industry pioneer. Since launching her eponymous range in 2010, Harper and her products have become the gold standard in how to deliver non-toxic, naturally derived and intelligently considered skincare that actually works. Make the Elixir Vitae Serum your starting point to soften deep-set wrinkles and add plumpness to skin. Powerful flower peptides and game-changing botanicals combine to restore skin and kick-start circulation.
A more sustainable serum
Every now and then, a beauty brand comes along that rewrites all the rules. This is exactly what One Ocean Beauty has done. Natural skincare (laden with effective marine actives and peptides) and an impeccable sustainability record are at the heart of this company. It has even gone above and beyond its environmental responsibilities with a $250,000 donation to Oceana – a huge global organization that works with governments to affect policy changes and safeguard the oceans. Plus, the packaging is entirely recyclable and the product itself is also sustainably produced. We love the Revitalizing Sea Serum because it layers beautifully under makeup.
The hair oil that gives back
Rahua was first founded by husband-and-wife team Fabian and Anna over a decade ago with one goal in mind: to create all-natural hair products that achieve great results, while empowering indigenous communities of the Amazon and preserving the future of the rainforest. Not only does Rahua pay above fair-trade price to the indigenous people and use 100% recyclable packaging, but the company has also established numerous non-profit philanthropic organizations to help protect the Amazon rainforest. Support the cause by investing in Rahua’s Legendary Amazon Oil, which heals spilt ends, smoothes flyaways and gives hair the most beautiful gloss.
The free-from blush
When makeup artist Kirsten Weis launched Kjaer Weis, her gluten-free, organic cosmetics line in slick packaging, far from being all style over substance, it was designed to be sustainable and practical. Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Desired Glow is a favorite of the beauty team and, like all Kjaer Weis compact products, can also be bought as a refill. Use the warmth of your fingers to pat onto cheekbones and under the brow for the prettiest of skin finishes.
The botanical body oil
Marrying science with nature to create results-driven skincare is by no means an easy feat, but Seed To Skin has worked tirelessly to make small handmade batches of potent plant-based products that are sustainably sourced from the brand’s own Tuscan farm. One of the quickest ways to hydrate and revive parched skin is with its The Serenity Antioxidant Dry Body Oil. The combination of essential oils, Vitamin C and fatty acids hydrate without feeling greasy and, being rich in antioxidants, helps to protect skin from aging free radicals.
The vegan lip balm
Banish chapped lips and smooth fine lines with KORA Organics’ vitamin-enriched Noni Lip Treatment. Packed full of the highest-quality vegan and certified-organic ingredients, selected by founder Miranda Kerr for their powerful properties, this nourishing blend of cupuaçu butter, antioxidant-rich noni fruit, date oil and licorice root will rehydrate and soften.
