Inventive Eco-Organic Moroccan Body Lotion
As you might have already guessed, I’m obsessed with organic beauty products and this Moroccan eco-organic gem is the latest in my winter skin arsenal.
Number one: it’s organic. Number two: it’s considered anti-aging and designed to repair damaged, dry and problem aging skin on the body. Rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids while naturally containing remarkably high level of vitamins E, C, B1, B2, B3, and B6, unlike most body lotions, their organic compound provides maximum internal and external benefits to the skin easily absorbing so that it doesn’t leave greasy residue.
Here’s what I love most about it: it smells like a heady beautiful earthy mix of frankincense, orange, oregano, rosemary, and sandalwood.
I’m in love.
From $8-$25, depending on the size.
Inventive Eco-Organic Moroccan Body Lotion
We recently came across the best smelling organic solution to our winter weary skin so we had to share. O.N.E. Skincare is an all-in-one product that can be kept around the house or on-the-go. Not only does O.N.E. smell deliciously clean and pure, but it also incorporates organic olive oil as a base, sunflower oil, vitamin E and lavender and geranium essential oils. The result is an all-in-one product that feels truly soothing on anyone in the family’s skin. And, because it’s organic, it can be used as a moisturizer for face and body, a deep conditioning hair mask, or a gentle healing ointment.
Organic Portico Sheets & Hyatt Hotels and Resorts
We like soft sheets and organic treats. So, just in time for the holiday travel season, eco-friendly home fashions brand Portico Home + Spa is launching an extensive organic cotton bedding program (sheets, pillow cases, and shams… oh my!) at Hyatt Hotels and Resorts. Now available in premier suites at 14 Hyatt hotels nationwide as well as in Aruba, additional Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, and Hyatt hotels plan to add this bedding line to their premier suites next year. Another nice deet: Hyatt already offers Portico amenities (shampoo, conditioner, and bath soap) in recycled PET packaging in more than 100 hotels nationally, making them available at the www.HyattAtHome.com website.
The launch of these linens in Hyatt hotels marks the first step of Portico’s hospitality industry initiative whereby the brand will partner with leading hotel and spa properties with progressive corporate sustainability missions. As part of the initiative, Portico will provide one-stop-shop sustainable solutions for properties wishing to authenticate their “green” initiatives. One part of Hyatt’s global sustainability program, Hyatt Earth
, also includes making responsible purchasing decisions. The organic cotton used in the bedding collection has been certified to Global Organic Textile Standard
(GOTS) which prohibits the use of toxic inputs during textile processing.
Props to Hyatt and Portico!
100% Pure Honey Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner
If this isn’t the best smelling shampoo and conditioner on the market, we don’t know what is. Did we also mention the fact that this entire line is 100% Pure? That’s right: no synthetic chemicals, petro chemicals, toxins, or artificial fragrances. Cruelty free, the packaging is made from recycled plastic, glass, aluminum, and paper and printing is done with non-toxic soy and vegetable-based inks. It’s also 100% biodegradable. It can’t get much better… but wait… it can!
They also have a delicious natural and organic make-up and skincare line with the lightest, most absorbent mint white tea moisturizer and organic coffee bean caffeine eye cream we’ve ever tried. We first found out about 100% Pure when we received their chocolate lip palette for Christmas last year. They looked and smelled so amazing that we had to stop ourselves from eating them. Cosmetics are colored from patent-pending antioxidant vitamin-packed fruit and vegetable pigments and there are so many great lip, face, hair and body products that we don’t really know where to begin. We want them all. Keep in mind that these products are natural so, for example, the Honey Coconut shampoo, is more watery than what you’d normally expect because they don’t contain those big foaming chemicals, but we promise that your hair will smell better than it’s ever smelled before. In fact, the make-up and skincare are so top notch that we’re trying to use ours quickly… just so that we can try more of them.
PS. These products make an excellent gift for yourself or for friends/family. And guys… if you’re looking for inexpensive gifts for your girlfriend, mom, or sister during the holidays, you (and the women in your life) will never be happier.
