11 Aug Products for a Passport Stamp: Three Continents in Organic Beauty
“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” – John Muir
In anticipation of Eat, Pray, Love hitting the theaters soon, I, too, find myself wanting to marvel at life beyond my perception. Especially when it comes to organic beauty. There are some remarkable USA companies that have found a way to bring organic beauty into the lives of both you and me. However, I have always been a gal in search of more. So, I got onto my free travel seat, (aka the chair in front of my home office computer), and took a trip online to discover organic beauty from across the seven seas. I discovered three amazing companies that are true to the organic way of life, allowing beauty to be more than skin deep.
There was an article in a magazine I was reading that talked about getting the royal treatment when you travel overseas. For example, if you go to the Hôtel Plaza Athénée in Paris, young divas who are three years old and up can stay in a Barbie-themed room. Talk about getting the best you deserve! Well, the same theory applies when you are looking for organic beauty products from around the world. Open your mind and your senses to what’s natural and healing in organic beauty in other countries. For me, all it took was a quick click, and I felt like I marveled at South Australia, Indonesia, and South Africa’s organic beauty. Where will your quest for organic take you and your beautiful skin?
First stop: South Australia.
Nature. Science. Innovation. Jurlique is a pure, organic skincare line that contains naturally harvested plants and flowers straight from the Mylor Farm in the Adelaide Hills. Growing over 35 different types of organic plantations including lavender, rose, marshmallow, licorice, and calendua, Jurlique ingredients are never grown using pesticides or herbicides. They also use their own handmade formulas in their skincare, bath and body, hand, aromatherapy, hair and baby products. With skincare containing a chock-full of the finest natural ingredients, you, too can be one organic, saucy Aussie!
Next stop: Indonesia.
Four women with a dream; one east-meets-west Indonesian line of organic beauty. Thanks to Metta Murdaya, Yosikio Roth, Jill Snug, and Tami Charug, Juara Skincare formed and is continuing to drive success. With active botanicals such as rice, tamarind, turmeric, candlenut oil, healing teas and red sandalwood, JUARA was able to take a step forward and introduce face and body natural products that maintain the secret to youthful skin. Just like Indonesian rituals, beauty is believed to include a balanced and peaceful mind. I don’t know about you but I am suddenly free…sign me up!
Final stop: South Africa
Everybody whether near or far, is beginning to realize that it is just as important what goes on our skin as what goes into it. But there are so many “natural” companies out there, who knows who is legit or not when they say they are organic. The solution is Manic Organic, South Africa’s Organic Network. This site is perfect for those looking for a one-stop-overseas-shop.
