The Best Organic Beauty Brands

Organic-beautyShopping for organic beauty buys isn't easy.  Labels are confusing and often times, we doubt the effectiveness of products sans chemicals and are left with the process of trial and error.  Here are five organic beauty brands that we can stand behind, because they promise quality and effectiveness.  Plus, they pride themselves in being ethical, honoring the environment and animals.

Going El Natural with Tata Harper

A few weeks ago I was chatting with my friend Denise, a publicist for Tata Harper Skincare, about eco-friendly beauty products and confessed that I've never used natural skincare.  When it comes to my face, I know what works and have been scared to make the switch.  Later that week I met with Tata Harper herself and was introduced to my new regimen. Tata convinced me to try her Resurfacing Mask during our meeting and being a total mask junkie, I was down.  After leaving it on for 20 minutes, I was glowing.  I couldn't stop looking at my skin in the mirror.  Pomegranate enzymes gently exfoliated my skin and I didn't even put bronzer back on for my next meeting.

I'm now using her Refreshing Cleanser, Repairative Moisturizer and the Resurfacing Mask twice a week.  She grows all of her own ingredients on her private farm in Vermont.  So far, the all natural skincare thing is working for me and my skin didn't freak out from the change.  I'm going to keep it up, I love knowing that I'm not putting chemicals into my skin daily.
