Conscious Currents Vol. 1

Here are some current favorites of mine that deserve a spotlight on the stage of conscious and mindful living:

Evanhealy Lavendar HydroSoul

One brand that has always stood out to me is evanhealy. Their gentle and holistic approach to skincare paired with ethical and sustainable practices make them a valuable part of the personal care industry.

Facial mists are one of my favorite types of beauty products, and I greatly appreciate the simplicity of a plant hydrosol. Evanhealy’s hydrosols are meticulously produced by steam-distilling the plants they hail from, and possess a number of skin-loving benefits. I enjoy using this one between steps in my skincare routine to enhance the absorption of other products. It also creates an aromatically calming experience when spritzed throughout the day…whenever I feel like it!

What makes it conscious:

  • USDA and Oregon Tilth certified organic
  • Lavender sourced from small family farms and uses only fresh plant materials
  • Artisan-distilled at low temperatures for maximum quality
  • Company empowers co-operatives and farmers through ethical projects and farm revival programs

What makes it classy:

  • Skincare with aromatherapy benefits
  • Sweet, mild, and earthy lavender scent
  • Feels luxuriously soothing, cooling, and hydrating when spritzed on the face

Pacha Orange Citrus Whipped Soap + Extra Scrub

This product recently introduced me to Pacha Soap Co., and upon learning about their extensive values and moral conventions, I have been inspired to support them further. In addition to utilizing ethically-sourced ingredients, they use their profits to support numerous modes of world prosperity, including clean water initiatives.

Speaking of water, this scrub is unlike anything I’ve ever used in that it starts out as a solid, airy texture that transforms into a lather when combined with water. The exfoliation particles are comprised of orange peel and sugar, which I find to be gentle yet effective. They have several varieties to choose from, but I often gravitate toward citrus scents, and this one is definitely a winner for me.

What makes it conscious:

  • Leaping Bunny certified cruelty free, gluten free, and vegan
  • Handcrafted in the USA with transparent and ethically-sourced ingredients
  • Formulated without parabens, SLS, sulfates, or synthetic fragrances
  • Meets Whole Foods Market’s Premium Body Care Standards
  • Company uses profits to support clean water initiatives, hygiene education, and small business opportunities worldwide

What makes it classy:

  • Delightfuly fresh citrus scent that I enjoy year-round
  • Cleans and gently exfoliates body at the same time
  • Uniquie whipped texture that lathers with water

Andalou Naturals Sensitive 1000 Roses CC Color + Correct SPF 30

While some brands have come and gone within my skincare collection, Andalou Naturals has claimed a steadfast position for years. They combine naturally derived ingredients with the technology of their signature Fruit Stem Cell Science to promote healthy skin at the cellular level. Additionally, the company partners with non-profit organizations to empower women around the world.

On days when I don’t wish to wear heavy or full-coverage foundation, a more lightweight option such as this cc cream is ideal. It comes in both Sheer Nude and Sheer Tan shades (I wear the sheer nude) and blends in easily. The hydrating formula offers just enough coverage to give me that quick, out-the-door confidence I need sometimes.

What makes it conscious:

  • Leaping Bunny certified cruelty free, gluten free, and vegan
  • Non GMO Project verified and 97% naturally derived ingredients
  • Formulated with alpine rose stem cells for sensitive skin
  • Mineral-based SPF 30 broad spectrum sun protection
  • Company empowers women through non-profit organizations

What makes it classy:

  • Lightweight, sheer coverage alternative to foundation
  • Hydrating formula with a slightly dewy finish
  • Evens skin tone and helps correct redness; perfect for “no makeup” days
  • Subtle and calming rose scent
