The numbers speak for themselves — green and clean skincare is becoming more popular every day. Forty to 50 percent of consumers in the U.S. say they “actively seek natural or organic ingredients in their products, and those free of ingredients including fragrances, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and gluten” according to NPD Group.
In the past, many clean beauty brands have come with a high price tag but UK brand Dr.Organic is both affordable and effective, and just newly launched in the United States this week. Available at Ulta, the brand features four key ingredient ranges, Aloe Vera, Rose, Snail Gel, and Tea Tree. Each collection addresses different skin issues and there’s something for everyone whether you have dry, oily or aging skin.
We all know aloe as an ingredient that will soothe your skin after a day of excessive sunbathing but its healing and calming properties also extend to skincare. Dr.Organic’s products are hydrating and nourishing providing relief to skin, and harvested sustainably in Mexico. The Aloe Vera Hydrating Moisture Cream is great to pack for a sunny vacation to restore after a day on the beach or even a cool destination to help calm skin.
As we head into the colder months of the year, the Rose Restoring Cleansing Cream is a gentle way to cleanse your skin and remove makeup. Its beautiful floral scent is derived from organic Rose Otto, one of the highest-quality roses in the world. This product works well for even sensitive skin.
Snail mucin has been a popular ingredient in Asia for a while and now you can try it at just $20 with Dr.Organic’s Snail Gel Healthy Aging Day Gel. Made with snail mucin, proteins, collagen, elastin, glycolic acid, and vitamins this product has a nice bounce to it and come with an invigorating citrus-scent. If you’re concerned about how the snail mucin is derived, fret not, Dr.Organic gel is humanely sourced from snails living in natural habitats in France. You could liken it to how honey is collected from bees.
Tea tree oil originates from Australia and has been used by Aborigines for centuries. It’s perfect for balancing out oily and combination skin and can help counteract blemishes. Use Dr.Organic’s Tea Tree Purifying Face Mask the night before a big event to wake up with a clear, glowing complexion.
Every single product in the Dr.Organic line costs less than $20 making it easy to mix and match collections and products while using natural, good-for-you ingredients that are ethically sourced.
