Green Tea Water Bomb Moisturizer - for all skin types, by Bonajour, a vegan, cruelty free skincare line, created by a young Korean woman, Dahae Kim, after her years-long struggle with sensitive skin. Bonajour works with experts on natural cosmetics, and invests an average of 550+ days in research/testing to create products from ingredients sourced close to earth.
Down Under Rub - a CBD and botanically-derived essential oil blend for discomfort, sore muscles, and joints, and localized pains. Company co-founder Heidi Millar saw CBD’s positive effects after her diagnosis with thyroid cancer and a genetic disorder that causes numerous health concerns; she and Jen Engevik source pesticide-free, cruelty free CBD from a sustainable farm in Oregon.
Mala Travel Spray - Crisp and sheer, this artisan perfume was inspired by a botanical species native to Appalachia. Blending precious absolutes and plant essences with biodegradable, vegan aromatics, the scent is naturalistic and long-wearing. The brand is named for a legendary Appalachian herbalist who shared her foraging and compounding skills with girls in her community who are now the women behind the company.
Turkish Towel - a line of ethically conscious resort wear and home textiles crafted from natural fibers hand-loomed in Turkey. The quick-drying towel is fabulous for beach/boating, but can also be used as a scarf or a sarong. Co-founder Cigdem Toraman was inspired by her upbringing in a Turkish fishing village where women wove their own fabrics. Female business partner Nilufer Senen thrives on sharing this type of local artistry.
Minis by Seen - a haircare line from Harvard-trained dermatologist Dr. Iris Rubin, who found patients were struggling with breakouts from other hair products. Her solutions are color-safe; clinically proven to be non-irritating and not to clog pores; and formulated without sulfates, silicones, phthalates, parabens, dyes, gluten, or animal testing.
