But it’s more than just carrying the titles of “organic “ and “natural”; Organic Nation, Intelligent Nutrients, NATULIQUE and NATURIGIN not only care about what they’re putting on our skin, they care about how these products are produced. We work with these companies for their social responsibility and dedication to protecting the environment we live in by reducing their footprint. Sustainable practices and ethically sourced ingredients are deeply ingrained values that are practiced in every step of production; protecting oceans, farmers, pollinators and ultimately our bodies.

That one glass could become two or three! Or if you’re not much of a red wine aficionado, switch it out for a crisp white or rosé knowing you have a better-for-you option.
