Shop It Now: Natural Skincare by Marie Veronique Organics
The exception: The Everyday Skincare Essentials line by Marie Veronique Organics. All of the MVO products are handcrafted in Mill Valley, California (just across the Golden Gate from San Francisco) using only organic, fair trade ingredients that are sourced as close to the company's headquarters as possible. The line is comprised of just four highly effective products that cleanse, hydrate, replenish and protect your skin. I've tried them. They work. (Thank me later.)
My favorite is the MVO Everyday Coverage—a tinted moisturizer with SPF 30. It's like three products in one. I heart efficiency.
And Marie Veronique (a real person!) cares about how her product ingredients will affect your skin just as much as she thinks about how they'll affect the planet. All packaging is recyclable and all ingredients are biodegradable. (Did you know chemical sunscreens are harming coral and sealife?)
