Sea salt contains an abundance of minerals that our body and skin needs. Sea salt can help keep the balance of minerals in our skin and provide protection.

Other salts such as Epsom and Pink Himalayan salt also contain healing and detoxify qualities. Add salts into your beauty routine with hellomellow’s Relax Pink Himalayan Body Scrub or Mullein & Sparrow’s Mini Rose Bath Salts.

Activated charcoal has powerful absorbing properties. It has been a popular ingredient in a variety of beauty and skin care products. Activated charcoal used in beauty is best known for drawing dirt and skin pollutants from the skin, leaving it glowing. Skin is also known to combat breakouts.

100% vegan Little Barn Apothecary Charcoal + Aloe Face Cleanser contains a combination of activated bamboo charcoal and the benefits of aloe which makes it a great daily facial cleanser or treatment cleanser.

From coconut oil to jojoba oil to argan oil, we are no strangers to beauty oils.They are packed with antioxidants and fatty acids that rejuvenate, hydrate and nourish our skin. Amal’s Moroccan Organic Argan Oil is one of the rarest oils in the world. It is known to help moisturize and contains skin regeneration properties through its richness in Vitamen E and linoleic/okeic acids.

KINDri Organic Beauty Oils contain a variety of ethically sourced oils such as grape seed, sunflower, and sweet almond. Oils can also act as a makeup remover or cleaner like the Mullein & Sparrow Cleansing Oil “featuring the anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of black cumin seed.”

ALGAE

Algae are simple, diverse group of organisms found in aquatic environments. We are quite familiar with algae like seaweed. Some algae used in skin-care products contain soothing properties and antioxidants. Red Algae like in OSEA’s Red Algae Mask may also help with aging. OSEA’s Undaria Algae Oil can be applied to the body, leaving the skin supple.

Argan, Take Me Away!

Summer’s over—so why are you still using that lightweight moisturizer? As the weather changes from warm and humid to brisk and dry, your skincare should transition, too. And for that, my friends, you need argan oil. 

But not just any Argan oil! Fair trade, organic, made in Morocco, Amal Argan Oil is extracted by hand from argan seeds in a time- and labor-intensive process that takes about 20 hours to produce one liter of oil. It’s fragrance and preservative free—as perfect as nature intended.

Rich in vitamin E and boasting one of the highest absorption rates of any natural oil, argan is super hydrating but won’t clog your pores. Argan is a miracle worker to remedy the effects of too much sun (and too little sunscreen). It can soothe eczema and psoriasis—and if you’re pregnant, it makes a perfect stretch mark cream. You can also massage Amal Argan Oil into the ends of dry hair as a treatment, onto your nails to prevent cracked cuticles, and on lips to keep them soft and smackable. Gorgeous!
