Besides eating organic food, using organic skincare products is another way to greenify your life. Essere Organics carries two wonderful product lines, Beautea and Lucia, containing a multitude of organic ingredients that are not only good for your skin, but smell incredibly good too.
The Beautea line includes lotions, soaps, shower gels, and candles made from ingredients like Organic Black Ceylon Pekoe Tea and Organic Green Oolong Tea, hence the namesake. The body lotions ($16.99), contain shea butter sunflower, soya, and sesame oils and are lightweight, but incredibly moisturizing, and quickly absorb into the skin as well. Beautea scents their skincare products very subtly, so they will not interfere with any other sort of fragrances you are wearing, which is great news for heavy handed perfume spritzers like myself. They are also paraben, pesticide, and synthetic preservative-free, which makes them truly a “green” company.
And the Lucia soaps are to die for. These large bars of finely milled soap are made with organic shea butter and keep your skin feeling incredibly smooth and soft. My favorite of the bunch is the Goats Milk & Linseed Soap ($8.49), which is extremely gentle and great for babies or anyone with sensitive skin.
Cost: $8.49 (soaps) – $16.99 (lotions)
