New! Skincare from Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney has launched a new skincare line called Care. The line, like its creator, is based wholly on vegan principles. It is 100% organic, and contains 0% petrochemicals, 0% silicones and 0% chemical preservatives.

The line is comprised of seven products: three elixirs, a cleansing milk, a purifying foaming cleanser, a green tea and linden-blossom floral water and a luxurious hydrating cream.

The packaging is amazing; it looks very hi-tech with its tubular all white bottles and silver outer packaging encasement.

If you are curious about the line, but don't want to invest in full size products, I suggest that you try the great travel sized Care Discovery Set. It is $38 and includes a four-piece, trial-sized sampling of the products such as: all three of Care's elixirs and a .169 oz super rich Benefits Moisturising Cream.

Be sure to check out Stella's Fall 2007 collection that debuted yesterday!

Crumb my pre-reviewed & corrected comments was somehow posted along with my final version. I'll have to eat some crow for that. Apologies for getting your names wrong.

This is so late in the game that the lights are off, but I have to point out a glaring flaw in ambeanie's comments and judgements. Maybe she's learned more in the years since her comments here. I hope so. I know nothing more about the actual ingredients in this line past what the label says, and neither does ambeanie.. But I DO know a little more about basic science. "Alcohol" is a natural product of an *organic* process called fermentation. "Glycerine" is an *organic* compound that is the basis of soap. My specific issue is that ambeanie doesn't even know about the most basic ingredients commonly found in a huge variety of consumer products but presumes to make decisions based on them anyway, and then spreads her misinformation with incorrect, albeit well-meaning, comments. As far as the rest of the ingredients goes, I'd have to do the research myself. You can't trust advertisements, labels, sales reps, and (surprise!) even well-intentioned comments on beauty sites.

Redegg -- I REALLY want to try the Jonathan products. I stare at them for ages whenever I'm at Sephora but can never bring myself to try them. Which ones have you tried? I have mildly wavy hair and frizz is a MAJOR problem for me. I wanted to try the leave in conditioner cuz I heard that was good for frizz. I've been using Beauty Without Cruelty's Vitamin C cleanser and their Clarifying Cleansing Mask which I LUV LUV LUV. My biggest thing is that it's vegan and cruelty free. Thanks, Amber

I knew this product was a joke the minute I read 100% organic. I have a hard time believing anything is truly 100% organic.

Hmmm.. interesting. Thanks for explaining! I guess whatever is in there that is "agricultural" is organic, maybe, and she just made sure there were no petrochemicals, silicones or chemical preservatives in the rest. I was told that having alcohol in beauty products was very bad for your skin so thats what I've been trying to avoid lately by using brands such as Boscia, which is all natural but not neccessarily organic. I guess the bad ingredients are debatable. ambeanie, have you seen Jonathan haircare products? They are vegan and fabulous. Also, there is a review of one kiss my face moisturizer in the beauty black list group that you might want to check out- caused a lot of pimples, I think, but I'm sure most of their products are great. :makeup:

I guess I was expecting alot more 'transparency' on claims and ingredients from someone like Stella McCartney. I think the consumer is getting kinda duped here thinking they are buying something that states it contains 100% organic ingredients when in reality it is actually only half of that. Oh well - live and learn right? thanks to ambeanie for writing all of the ingredients out : )

Based on what I understand regarding the use of organics in skincare products (I use Beauty Without Cruelty, Kiss My Face, Alba Organics) but not necessarily regarding these products cos I don't know for sure.... The ingredients for the Purifying Foaming Cleanser: Centaurea Cyanus Flower Water, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate. Aqua (Water). Oleamidopropyl Betaine. Alcohol. Glycerin. Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate. Crataegus Oxyacantha Flower Water, Coco-Glucoside. Glyceryl Oleate. Algin. Citric Acid. Geraniol. Linalool. Hexyl Cinnamal. Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Leaf Oil, Cymbopogon Martini Oil, Eugenia Caryophyllus Bud Oil, Lavandula Hybrida Oil, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Pogostemon Cablin Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil, Vetiveria Zizanoides Root Oil, Spiraea Ulmaria Extract, Equisetum Arvense Extract, "4sb01-1." If you look at all the ingredients -- you can see that A LOT of the top ingredients that make up the bulk of the product CANNOT be categorized as organic. I've never seen organic alcohol or organic glycerin. So the actually percentage is based on the available organic ingredients that make up the product and doesn't necessarily mean that the company is being misleading. My assumption would be that since this product is approx. 50% organic, that the other 50% is made up of all those other non-plant ingredients. Sorry that was so long but I hope it clears things up a bit. Best, Amber

What was the rest of the content? What really makes a skincare product organic, anyway? I'm not clear on this...

Ok I'm gonna share what I found out on the TRUE organic percentage of Stella McCartney's CARE range. I found out the hard way by believing what a Sephora store assitant told me and [more worringly] what is written on the front of all of the CARE packaging and [equally as worrying] what a beauty editor on this site wrote. Radiance & Youth Elixir contains 50.8% organic ingredients NOT 100% 5 Benefits Moisturising Cream contains 56.95% organic ingredients NOT 100% 5 Benefits Moisturising Fluid contains 50.95% organic ingredients NOT 100% Purifying Foam Cleanser contains 51.8% organic ingredients NOT 100% Gentle Cleansing Milk contains 50.7% organic ingredients NOT 100% Calming & Soothing Elixir contains 51.6% organic ingredients NOT 100% Products that do actually contain 100% organic ingredients; Nourishing Elixir contains 100% organic ingredients Toning Floral Water contains 100% organic ingredients

I purchased 4 of Stella McCartney's CARE products from a Sephora store in Miami. I was told by the store person that the products contained 100% organic ingredients (great!) plus it's on the front of the packaging and marketing so I thought it must be true. Later, when I was reading the ingredients on the back of the packaging, in very small writing was the true overall organic percentage of each product . . . .the foaming cleanser actually contains 50% organic ingredients NOT 100% as the packaging claims. I then checked the moisturiser and that was about 47% NOT 100%!! The true fact of the matter is only 2 products in this range contain 100% organic ingredients. I complained to Sephora and they said they had received their training from CARE which is made by Yves Saint Laurent. I asked for my money back as the marketing claims were a tad misleading and in all fairness to Sephora they did give me my money back. I was just really surprised that Stella would let something like this happen with her name on it - why not just put the TRUE organic percentage on the front? anyone else think the same, or am I being overly picky here?

Eh, I tend to think your skin should look good if you are going to sell skin products.
