Have you checked out Juice Beauty lately? Maybe it's something about being trapped in the middle of a Canadian winter, but the bright fresh colours and the images evoked by the whole concept of "juice" - natural, citrussy, fruity scents, bright, crisp formulations - seem particularly attractive right now (as she looks out at the 3 feet of snow on top of the barbecue...)
But it's not just the great marketing that makes Juice Beauty so attractive. They use fresh, local ingredients sustainably cultivated from USDA Certified Organic Farms. All their fun and funky cartons and sales materials are printed on 100% recycled paper, use soy based inks, and are VOC free. Any other paper is Forest Stewardship Council certified, which promotes environmentally conscious and sustainable use of forests. Further lightening the carbon footprint, over 80% of all Juice Beauty products are manufactured in a solar powered plant in sunny California.
And there's a whole lot of product-based reasons to like Juice Beauty too. Check out their (OMG delicious-sounding) Organic Lip Moisturizer with shea butter, orange and vanilla; the sweet Organic Facial Wash, with organic grape and apple juices, organic sunflower oil, honey and more; or really treat yourself (or someone you really, really like) with an Eco-Chic Beauty Bag, the bag made from recycled rice bags and repurposed aluminum, the contents including gorgeous Lip Plumper, Green Apple SPF 20 Antioxidant Body Moisturizer, and more.
You can purchase Juice Beauty products on their website or in Canada at your local Sephora.
