For April’s Birchbox, we teamed up with the well-respected green chic site, Ecofabulous. Their experts helped us pick several of the environmentally-friendly goodies featured in this month’s box and founder Zem Joaquin even generously served as our latest Birchbox Crush. This week we’re hearing from Caitlin Bristol, the site’s creative director. Today she’s musing on one of our new favorite brands, Juice Beauty.
With organic food proving to be more than a passing fad, it’s only a natural to also shift the focus from what goes into our bodies to what we slather onto them. (FYI: 60 percent of what you apply to your skin gets absorbed into your bloodstream.)
Juice Beauty is an organic skincare line we’ve followed from day one, happily cheering them on as they exploded into stores like Sephora and Whole Foods (and yes, Birchbox!). The entire ecofabulous staff uses many of their products daily. The Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer ($65) feels silky smooth, and is guaranteed to have the same effect on your skin. And the Green Apple Peel ($45) smells like sweet apples and is chock-full of antioxidant goodness to protect from environmental damage.
What’s really exciting, though, is that Juice Beauty has been taking even more eco-strides in their business. Not only do they source local, organic ingredients, but they also use 100 percent recycled packaging and print everything with soy-based inks. Free of anything bad for either human or environmental health (which are one-in-the-same as far as we’re concerned), Juice Beauty products are a great option for those fed up with all the unnatural stuff pervading our skincare regimes.
Effective and organic, check out more of Juice Beauty’s offerings in the Birchbox Shop.
