Garden of Eve Skin Care Review

About Garden of Eve

Founded in 2003 by health consultant Eve Stahl, Garden of Eve produces natural, safe and 100 percent ecologically friendly skin care products. As a proud signer of The Compact for Safe Cosmetics, Garden of Eve manufactures and provides a safe alternative to products that contain harsh chemicals that can seriously harm a person’s health.

Countless skin care products contain toxic substances that can harm the liver, respiratory and reproductive systems. Our line provides a natural alternative while also providing dramatic results for those seeking younger looking, more vibrant skin.

Garden of Eve offers a wide range of skin care products, including face care systems for all skin types, specialty products for safe use during pregnancy, face care cleansers and moisturizers for men, plus hand and body care items. Our entire line is made with organic aromatic essential oils, herbal extracts and hydrosols of exotic herbs and flowers such as Rose, Jasmine and Neroli. Our products also incorporate organic Oats, Seaweed and carrier oils of Sunflower, Sesame, Kukui and Macadamia which are known to enhance the skin's condition and reduce the appearance of aging without dangerous and unnatural processes.

The harsh chemicals found in many beauty products absorb into the skin when applied and ultimately can travel through the entire body by way of the circulatory system. Alarmingly according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG) these synthetic ingredients are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). More than 750 personal care products sold in the United States violate the industry or cosmetic safety standards set by other industrialized countries according to a 2007 EWG letter to FDA.

Unlike these potentially dangerous and toxic products, the Garden of Eve product line does not use any synthetic ingredients such as parabens and pthalates that have ties to breast tumors and liver toxicity. We utilize only organic cold pressed oils, organically grown and wild-crafted herbs and unbleached, unrefined hand pressed butters and waxes.

My Review:
I really like these products. This would be perfect for taking on a weekend trip or a week-long trip. They all hold a good amount of product. The only one I have a compliant about is the toner, because I though it was a bit hard on my skin and I hated the smell of it. I really like the cleanser, mask, and eye cream! They were very gentle on my skin and worked very well. I would recommend these products.
