EDITORS'S CHOICE: Top NEW Natural and Organic Beauty Products You Need to Try

The upcoming season is ALL about natural and organic beauty products!
Each day, we are exposed to a myriad of chemicals and preservatives in our personal and cosmetic lotions and potions. So this coming fall, why not start fresh with a clean up of some of your favorite skin and hair care essentials?  These are some of my favorites which I feel good about using. I think you will too!

Clean up your act (and face) with these natural cleansers and masques
Nude by Nude Brands, France
This is touted as the perfect cleansing oil for face and eyes. Formulated without mineral oils and sulphates, it really does an amazingly gentle job of removing the heaviest mascara and eyeliner. Effectively removes makeup without stripping your face of its natural oils. Fragrance and colorant free. See it at

G.M. Collin Bio Organique Energizing Masque
One of my favorites, this masque both moisturizes and purifies with natural fruits and oils. Made with a good amount of organic ingredients. I like to use this a few times a week after cleansing. Available only at day spas.
Come Clean Glycerin Bar Soaps
Come Clean Pop Culture Soap, NYC
These glycerin based bar soaps are very similar to the ones I show you how to make in my book, Nature's Weeds, Native Medicine - Lotus Press. Only these are so much cooler! Made with natural oils like coconut, palm and safflower oils, once the soap is finished, collect and trade the little toy inside. Hello Kitty! See more soaps online at

Organic Doctor Hydrating Radiance
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Hydrating Radiance Elixir, UK
I use EVO Coconut Oil in cooking, baking, for my body and hair care. So I was really interested in what Organic Doctor had to offer in this department. Although aloe based, it is very light in texture, and contains organic orange, lemon and bergamot oils. It can sting a bit if used after exfoliation, (perhaps due to the citrus oils) but overall it is a quick absorbing, soothing formula. See it at or purchase at

Beelieve Deep Hydrating Balm
Beelieve Deep Hydrating Balm by Heaven + Urth, CA
This oil and beeswax formula is again very similar to the ointments I have recipes for in Nature's Weeds, Native Medicine. Loaded with olive, jojoba, coconut and calendula oils, it is the perfect healing balm. The organic beeswax means that it stays solid even in rather warm temperatures and comes with a little wooden spoon to help scoop it out. You only need a pea sized amount and my hands are so soft from using it at night before bedtime. Has a fresh lavender-orange scent due to the presence of these botanical oils. Check it out at 

Rozge Natural Lip Gloss comes in 22 opaque colors
Rozge Natural Lip Gloss, CA
Lip gloss is lip gloss, right? Well that might have been true until Rozge Cosmeceutical came up with this luscious formula made with all natural, wild-crafted, organic ingredients. Rich in natural oils like: Shea butter, Sunflower, Jojoba and Safflower oils plus "Dragon's blood" (ancient Roman remedy) & aloe vera, it takes lip moisture to a whole new level. Comes in a riot of 22 flattering colors as you can see above, these glosses heal and protect your lips while looking fabulous. I really like how the wand lights up and has a little mirror on the side to help with nighttime applications. Great packaging for a seriously luxe lip product.Visit online.

Rozge lip glosses have a light up wand and slim side mirror

Shiny strong hair is something that starts from within. So I would definitely invest in some quality hair & skin vitamins first. After that, you will find that coconut oil can be your very best friend as a deep hair conditioner. You can apply it and wrap your hair in a turban overnight. The next morning, shampoo as usual. If your hair is really dry and damaged, you may want to use a Castile soap or coconut oil shampoo. Both are rich in botanical oils and will help replenish your hair in a hurry. Try Organic Doctor's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. Made to volumize and protect, it doesn't weigh your hair down or leave it greasy.

Coconut based hair and body care products from Organic Doctor
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil - Monoi Moisture Melt Body Oil
This is a very coconut oil rich moisturizer that can be used on your hair or body. It's liquid at warm room temperatures but like real coconut oil, will solidify somewhere below 70 degrees. If that happens you will have a hard time pouring it from the bottle. Simply hold the bottle under warm water for a few seconds and it should loosen up. Lots of super rich oils in this formula like: coconut, mango and cocoa butter. The label says Tahitian Gardenia Flower Extract but if you are a true fan of exotic Monoi fragrance, I'm afraid you won't find it in this formula. It has more of a coconut-mango scent that is still very pleasant. A little goes a long way and I like the way this formula slides on my legs and arms after a shower. See the entire line at
