Airplane air is dry and often leaves our skin dry, patchy and dehydrated. It would be ideal to bring our whole skin care regime onto the plane but as we know, we can only bring a limited amount of creams and liquids onto planes. Here are a few travel friendly vegan beauty products that will take care of your skin 36,000 miles above ground.

Hurraw! Lip Balm 

A good vegan lip balm is a must -have when traveling. Hurraw! lip balms are non-toxic, vegan, and uses 100% organic ingredients to create a balm that glides on silky smooth and moisturizes the lips without drying after effects. They come in an assortment of flavors such as vanilla, grapefruit, and chocolate.

Our Favorite Eco Retreats

Wellness and eco retreats are the vacation spots for those of us looking to be inspired, to stay mentally and psychically fit, or simply to unplug from everyday life. We looked at a few favorite wellness escapes from around the world that are unique and incorporate yoga, spas and all things healing.

Kamalaya Koh Samui – Thailand
A vacation spent at the Kamalaya Koh Samui wellness sanctuary and spa resort on the Koh Samui Island in Thailand means healing and detoxing amongst the lush green forests and baby blue seas. Along with Kamalaya Koh Samui’s wellness, yoga, and recreational facilities, the escape offers a bunch of wellness programs (in areas like healthy lifestyle, detox, stress & burnout), all soothing for the soul.

Xinalani – Mexico
If truly falling off the grid to rejuvenate is your thing, Xinalani is the place to be. This eco-retreat center is only accessible by boat in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Surrounded by the healing elements of the earth, Xinalani provides a safe haven for spiritual growth and the restoration of the mind and body. Find yourself in the midst of a yoga session or swimming alongside dolphins. The activities at Xinalani are endless.

Floating Leaf – Bali
Floating Leaf Eco- Luxury Retreat in Bali is a favorite because it not only provides yoga and spa programs but also a chance to see the treasures of Bali and learn Balinese traditions. From surfing to photography to Balinese healing, Floating Leaf nurtures both the healer and traveler within us.

The Coast Ridge Retreat – San Francisco, California
If you love fitness or up for a physical challenge, the Coast Ridge Retreat is your perfect getaway. Located between Mt. Tamalpais and the Pacific Ocean, the program is a 4-day retreat that challenges your approach to life. The retreat aims to reboot yourself physically and mentally: realizing purpose, relearning health, nourishing love, play and fitness.

Two Bunch Palms – Palm Springs, California 
We love Two Bunch Palms for its naturally healing mineral waters. You will not find any more creative offering of classes, including “Discover your power animal”, “Harmonic vibrations sound bath” and “Vino & Van Gogh” to name a few. Of course you still get a luxury 77 acre resort with delicious farm-to-table cuisine, and full spa offering from Shamanic Healing to Reiki and one of our favorites, Thai massage. 

Esalen Institute – Big Sur, California 
If your idea of a blissful vacation is working on your spiritual self, and naked moonlit Jacuzzis over the cliffs near Big Sur, you will love Esalen. Esalen is a spiritual retreat center with a rich bohemian past that welcomes all those who seek beyond wisdom, a higher conscience, what is beyond society. Esalen provides workshops, hot springs, meditation, and most importantly a community with opened arms. *Esalen reopens July 28th 2017

Behind the Brand: Interview with 100% Pure Founder

Screen Shot 2017-05-01 at 3.16.12 PM

100% Pure is one of our favorite beauty brands (we featured two products in our April/May box!), so we hopped at the chance to ask Susie Wang, 100% Pure’s cofounder and chief creative officer, the following questions. As a beauty product innovator and cruelty free advocate bringing us organic and clean beauty, Susie leaves us very inspired!

You are a leader in the clean beauty space, how long have you been around?

I first entered the beauty industry in 2000 because when I was a freshman at UC Berkeley, I bought a vitamin C serum that oxidized and I figured out how to stabilize vitamins from oxidizing in skincare. I patented my invention which attracted the attention of 3 of the largest cosmetic companies which recruited me to work for them. I began working with these 3 large cosmetic brands on their technology, innovation and their formulas. After working with them for 5 years, I learned about all the toxins in cosmetics which inspired me to start 100% PURE.

Why is it important to have a cruelty free brand?

I have a passion to help animals and refuse to support anything that hurts animals. I am currently working on helping to find ways to end the Yulin festival in China. For now, I’m supporting Yang XiaoYun in China who goes to the festival to buy the dogs (IG @friendsofyang) By supporting 100% PURE, it gives us the resources to end animal cruelty and to keep doing good for people.

NakedIIretouchedWhat is the most fun part of your business?

The most fun part is creating the healthiest products for women and supporting animal based charities.

What is the most challenging part of your business?

I’m always working on innovation and technology so the most challenging part of what I do is finding improved / healthier ways to make an even better formula, delivery system, packaging, etc.

Juicy Matte Lipsticks

Which of your products is your favorite?

I am currently loving our 100% PURE BB cream and 100% PURE’s Lip and cheek tint. And every single night, I use the 100% PURE Retinol Restorative Overnight Balm.

What is the importance of being 100% Pure to you?

When I walk into a cosmetics store, I feel there should be warning signs in the store and warning labels on the products just as there’s a warning label on tobacco products because most cosmetics contain a ton of toxins that are dangerous and unhealthy for our health and skin. 100% PURE products give you even better results you expect from cosmetics but without the toxins that’s in most other products so there’s no reason why you wouldn’t ant to use 100% Pure.

What is your daily routine (or first thing you do in the morning)?

Kiss my puppies good morning and say a short prayer to thank God for my life. I then jump out of bed for a quick workout and then eat a vegan coconut yogurt with berries and granola. Then I go to work. Usual lunch for me is tofu mushroom soup or a kale salad. Afterwards, I either meet up with a friend, go on a date or spend the evening by myself in a spa or at home reading or watching a movie. For dinner, I mostly eat soup or another salad. During the weekend is when I indulge in whatever I want to eat but during the week, I keep my diet simple and light.

One word that best describes you?
