Like you, we care about what we put on our skin, so we were thrilled to learn about these local beauty products that use quality ingredients. From makeup to skincare and hair care, here are 6 amazing, local brands that we can definitely get behind. We’ve tried them all out and are in love.
100% Pure – San Jose
100% Pure is all about natural beauty products. Like their name suggests, they are 100% natural and 100% cruelty-free. All products are produced without artificial colors, artificial fragrances, synthetic chemical preservatives and all other toxins. They offer skincare and hair care products, but most of all we love their makeup. The color in their product comes from real fruit, how cool is that? From blushes to lipstick, you can be confident with what you are wearing on your skin.
Loverdure – San Jose
Loverdure hand mixes and creates small-batch facial oils that are made with all natural ingredients. They are extremely moisturizing and easily absorb into your skin. Our favorite product is The Warrior which minimizes fine lines and also combats skin discolorations. Although it doesn’t look like much product, one little bottle goes a long way!
Napa Organics – Napa Valley
Napa Organics products are made with with local Napa Valley and Northern California agricultural ingredients. Their main goal is to make your skin smooth, glowing, hydrated and healthy! We loved their nourishing Plum & Rose Liquid Balm. If you can’t decide what to get, their amazing Travel Kit has a little bit of everything to try.
Cozi Skincare – San Francisco
Cozi Skincare was developed by Coco of CoCo Spa in San Francisco. Coco has been in the skincare business for nearly three decades and specializes in facials. She’s put all of her knowledge about skin into creating outstanding, natural, organic, non-toxic, high quality products that she uses in her spa and also offers for sale via her website. We love the Enzyme Peel and Eye Cream. Also check out the CoCo Spa YouTube channel for great skincare tips.
Biossance – Berkeley
Biossance is a new biotech-backed skincare brand that is making a difference for your health and the health of the planet. They have created an amazing alternative to squalane (originally from sharks) with sustainably sourced sugarcane. They have recreated this mega-moisturize molecule and added Vitamin C Rose Oil to create their Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil that brightens, firms and evens skin tone and texture. We love how light it feels and the scent is lovely as well. Their Squalane + Antioxidant Cleansing Oil was also an instant favorite of ours. It effortlessly removes makeup while moisturizing your skin at the same time.
True Botanicals – Mill Valley
True Botanicals is for all you luxury skin and haircare addicts. Not only do they use the best ingredients, they are also Made Safe Certified. We absolutely love their anti-oxidant rich shampoo and nourishing conditioner. They are suitable for all hair types and your hair will never feel better!
