On my everlasting quest to find a luxurious skincare line that is also organic I have gotten one step closer. Made From Earth is a great holistic skincare line. So many other "organic" skincare lines out there use organic ingredients and then mix them with chemicals for preservation. I love feeling completely safe when I use these products.
A study, reported in the January 2004 edition of the Journal of Applied Toxicology, found parabens to be the most common cosmetic preservative present in significant amounts in 18 out of 20 breast cancer tumors. Kim Erickson, author of Drop Dead Gorgeous, states, “Cosmetic chemicals accumulate in the body’s fatty tissues, where they can remain for years and damage your cells.” We only use natural ingredients to preserve our precious organic ingredients – and we found our natural preservatives are even great for your skin, like Jojoba and Vitamin E.
Made From Earth selects only the highest potency organic ingredients for their products. All their ingredients / plants are from certified organic farms. There are no potentially toxic ingredients in their products. There is no synthetic coloring agents or fragrances, or paraffin and other petroleum products are permitted. Preservatives from synthetic sources are not permitted, such as Parabens (propyl, methyl and ethyl). They are 100% farmed and sourced in the USA. Their unique organic ingredients product development teams have put together the purest and most potent organic ingredients, which include organic juices, aloe vera, honey, natural botanicals, and natural plant oils.
My favorite product I've used so far is the Green Tea Cleanser
The main ingredient in in this, shockingly is Green Tea. Green Tea is a base antioxidant. This healthy cleanser is enhanced with vitamins A, B, C and E. Since it contains no chemicals, the cleanser is hypoallergenic and non-irritating for people with sensitive skin. The Aloe Vera base in the cleanser combines with Green Tea to provide an antioxidant boost to remove free radicals restoring healthier skin. This product does not contain the typical surfactant or detergent ingredient that most cleansing gels contain; it is a chemical-free gentle cleanser.
My other favorite product in the collection is the Grapefruit Glycolic Scrub. This scrub gently exfoliates with the power of grapefruit, which contains powerful antioxidants for fighting free radical damage that ages skin prematurely. It is formulated with gentle, organic jojoba exfoliants and anti-wrinkle emollients that reveal a smoother, renewed complexion. The soothing grapefruit helps to heal surface impurities with its high concentration of Vitamin C, also creating balanced PH for your skin.
