As summer heats up, we find ourselves looking for ways to cool down, the most important of which is to hydrate. While water is the key to healthy skin — it detoxes and repairs! — it has a diluting effect in skincare.
The growing trend in beauty is rooted in a wide variety of plant-based oils. This highly effective floras are hand-sourced in the most rare and pure environments. Sea Buckthorn is found in the highest of the Himalayas and the lotus leaf extract is grown in the mineral-rich volcanic island of Jeju. Their beneficial oils are used to create customized compounds that instantly hydrate and resurface the skin. Waterless formulas range from deodorant to shampoo to sunscreen and are earth-friendly.
This next wave of beauty brands is using everything but water to create more effective, sustainable products. So let’s dive right in.
