I think — or at least, I hope — that the organic-beauty trend will soon be as big as organic food, and brands like Nature Girl are expertly leading the way. I could have easily fallen in love with this line based on the packaging alone; I love the simple bottles and the colorful, bubbly script. But when I started reading more about these bath oils, shampoos, facial cleansers, and moisturizers, I was really smitten.
Sold at Anthropologie and online, Nature Girl uses all-natural and organic ingredients grown on family-run farms. Not surprisingly, the products are also free of synthetic fragrances and dyes, and Nature Girl shuns animal testing. The brand also donates a portion of its profits to women's and environmental causes. These products are a little pricey, but I'm willing to pay more to support the organic cause. To see the products I'm most excited to try,
Petal Power Organic Golden Jojoba Bath Oil ($38) comes in six "synergies" to treat different wellness-related concerns, such as relaxation, sleep, and post-exercise soreness.
I Am Green Cinnamon Bark Extract Face Mask ($45) sounds yummy and versatile: It's designed to nurture and clean normal and combination skin.
Groovy Locks Plant Shampoo ($35) is a sulfate-free formula that contains corn and coconut oils; it comes in three different scents for three different hair types.
