Vegan Skincare by VERDURA naturalternatives
I’m here to review some awesome products by one of my favorite skincare lines, VERDURA naturalternatives! I have always been a huge fan of VERDURA naturalternatives and wrote about them in the past, so when the founders asked if I wanted to test out some of their new products of course I said yes! VERDURA naturalternatives is an eco, cruelty-free, vegan skincare company that has luxurious body care products that are kind on the skin and on the earth!
I really love this brand because it has kind, healthy ingredients in each product. I also love the intention behind the brand. For one, VERDURA naturalternatives believes people should have the pleasure of taking care of yourself without the guilt of harming yourself or anything else. I totally relate to this. When it comes to beauty, sometimes I feel like I’m making a sacrifice. I feel a little guilt buying a new stick of mascara at the drug store knowing the packaging of it is non-recyclable and that the ingredients inside are probably not good for my skin or eyelashes.
What’s beautiful about green beauty is that you can enjoy effective body care products without sacrificing your own health. Green beauty brands like VERDURA naturalternatives allow us to not only enhance our beauty from the outside, but to also cater to certain internal elements to enhance our beauty in a healthful nature.
Beauty is not Pain
It’s interesting to me how many perfumes, for example, can make you smell nice but are filled with hormone disruptors. It is too often a sacrifice many women feel that they have to make. In the past when I’ve used everyday department-store products, I tend to cross my fingers and hope nothing wrong will come of it, despite reapplying formulas on the same parts of the skin for decades. Green beauty, on the other hand, makes you smell nice and look great, but also be filled with ingredients that will actually make your skin healthier by providing vitamins, rich moisture, and needed enzymes.
VERDURA naturalternatives is a completely gluten-free, plant based, vegan skincare line. They strictly use ingredients that are organic and sourced from nature. All of the VERDURA naturalternatives products are made without parabens, artificial fragrance, synthetic colorants, or petrochemicals so you don’t have to worry about what’s seeping into your skin.
The co-creator, Brigitte, is an aesthetician and a skin cancer survivor. With her knowledge and background in skincare research, she’s created this vegan skincare line that specializes in healing.
Namasté Bath & Body Oil
The first product I tested was the Namasté Bath & Body Oil!
This is a product that I had no idea I needed in my life till now. It feels amazing on the skin! What’s great too is that the oils inside are a high-end formula and not greasy at all. I like to pump the oil into my palm and smooth it into my arms and legs after I get out of the shower. It makes your skin look great with the extra sheen, and keeps my skin really healthy and vibrant looking.
I got a significant sunburn on my thigh earlier this month, so I gently smoothed some of the body oil into my healing burn. It did wonders to my skin! It helped hydrate my skin and repair the sun damage with antioxidants. I can contest to this, because the sunburn was a lot less noticeable the day after.
Dead Sea Salt Aquamarine Soap
The next product I tested was the Aquamarine soap! This pretty sea-green bar is made with lots of essentials oils including peppermint, tea tree, and rosemary for a luxurious scent. The bar also has dead sea salt which acts as a great exfoliant.
Bar soaps are my favorite because they last forever, which is sustainable in itself! This one is especially pretty and has a refreshing feeling on the skin.
Although VERDURA Naturalternatives uses a variety of organic and natural oils in their formulas, they choose to exclude the use of palm oil since it is often correlated with deforestation. I really respect this choice, because many beauty and food industry retailers use palm oil because it’s so cheap. The transparency of VERDURA Naturalternatives to make a conscious choice to opt out of using certain ingredients due to their questionable sources is truly admirable to me.
