Natural skin care is trending. Anything plant-based, fruit-based, Vegetable-based - if it comes from the ground, just take my money and rub it all over my face.
Beauty consumers are getting savvier and now carefully reading shampoo labels like food product labels. A simple rule of thumb: if it's got more than 16 letters and is completely unpronounceable, it's probably not great for your body.
That said, there is no shortage of natural beauty brands popping up right and left. Some packaging themselves as high-end and luxurious and others as accessible and affordable, but at the end of the day, the ingredients are identical. You're paying for packaging, so why not support local Canadian companies!
These Canadian brands often times started in a backyard or garage and are produced in small batches. Creating products that are mindfully crafted from the fine natural ingredients. The best part: none will break the bank.
