Going green is a huge trend in the marketplace these days, but sadly we don’t often see a huge beauty corporation invest in a truly “green” line of skincare. Green products cost more than their mainstream counterparts: the ingredients are more expensive, the packaging costs more and the target market is smaller.
So I have to applaud my employer and one of the largest beauty companies in the world, Avon, for taking the green plunge. Avon’s new line of skincare and bodycare, Liiv Botanicals, only features products that are preservative-free and dye-free. All of the facial products are also fragrance-free.
The product formulas, containing powerful ingredients like Portulaca and Banaba extracts, capture active plant extracts to deliver rejuvenating benefits directly to the skin. The Vital Day Cream with SPF 20 is a lightweight, soothing moisturizer that boasts healthier clarity and improved skin tone in just 3 days. I’ve used it and can honestly say that my skin did have a renewed brightness and clarity. At only $15, it’s a great green value and the rest of the line is just as reasonably priced.
So consider saving your skin from some unnecessary synthetic ingredients, saving the earth from some non-biodegradable chemicals and saving yourself a few dollars at the same time. You can explore the Liiv Botanicals line here.
