Garden of Eve Skin Care Products - As Pure As It Gets!
Garden of Eve Skin Care
I recently had the opportunity to try the Basic Skin Care Kit from Garden of Eve, which included the Facial Cleansing Nectar, Wise Woman Toner, a moisturizer, the aptly named "Wise Woman Emollient Face Crème" that my face just loved, loved, loved(!) and a rejuvenating eye crème.
Formulated by herbalist Eve Stahl, Garden of Eve is a truly unique skin care line. She uses only organically grown and wild crafted herbs, aromatic essential plant oils, organic cold pressed oils, and unrefined butters and waxes in her products, and absolutely no parabens, synthetic fragrances and dyes, or petroleum products. Instead she uses an alternative to traditional preservatives called Geogard Ultra. Devotees of EWG (the Environmental Working Group) will be happy to note that all of the ingredients in Garden of Eve have a zero hazard rating.
While I adored each of the products, at first I wasn't overly fond of the fragrance. It was enough of a distraction that I inquired as to whether there were unscented versions, which there are of course. Oddly enough though, the scent began to grow on me and I actually looked forward to it when I used the products, in particular that wonderful Wise Woman Emollient Face Creme. I can only think that it was because my nose couldn't place the fragrance at first due to the combination of aromatic plant oils used in the formulations.
Because most Garden of Eve products are custom made and completely natural--most have a shelf life of about 6 months--Eve tends to make her products in small batches. If you have difficult, sensitive or even mature skin (pre or post-menopausal) that needs a lot of TLC and prefer a skin care line that is 100% natural and custom made just for you, then give Garden of Eve a try. Your skin will thank you for it and so will your body.
