Organic Beauty Brand: Dr. Woods


I'm always trying to "green my beauty routine" and I love trying new products. I was recently introduce to a local brand - Dr. Woods. Their slogan "All Things Good" describes the natural ingredients used in their products and the philosophy behind the brand. They produce all their products in the United States (upstate New York to be exact!) and use only the most natural, effective and sustainable ingredients they can find. Their products are not tested on animals, 100% vegan as well as gluten, paraben, phthalate, lauryl/laureth sulfate free. I had a chance to try their Garden Cucumber Raw Shea Butter Soap and Lavender Castile Soap and wanted to share my thoughts:

The Raw Shea Butter Soap was made with exfoliating mint leaves so it smelled very minty. This Garden Cucumber soap gently cleanses and rejuvenates your skin with refreshing fragrances and antioxidants. Dr. Woods utilizes nature's essential elements to strengthen and refresh your skin. I enjoyed using this soap as it gentle exfoliates and the mint smell wakes you up! The ingredients are: palm oil, palm kernel and/or coconut oil, water, glycerin, mint leaf and cucumber fragrance, organic shea butter, crushed mint leaves, natural mineral pigment, salt, and Vitamin E.
The Lavender Castile Soap is made with organic shea butter and olive oil to unlock the natural healing properties. The olive oil attracts and holds moisture close to the skin, forming a breathable layer that improves moisture retention. The Vitamin E rich lather leaves skin feeling naturally soft and clean. She butter helps generate the process of dry skin leaving it ultra moisturized. This product does it all! Daily facial cleanser or body wash, bubble bath, and even for your laundry. I love multi-purpose products and love the smell of lavender. Ingredients are: purified water (aqua), saponified coconut, hemp & olive oils (with retained glycerin), organic shea butter, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), essential oil of lavender, sea salt, citric acid, and rosemary extract.

What new brands have you tried lately?
