Foster Renew Face Wash
Local BC-sourced ingredients (cruelty-free honey, vegetable castile soap, distilled water and organic extra-virgin coconut oil) in an easy-carry spray bottle make this unscented face wash the perfect travel companion for removing foundation and dirt and minimizing breakouts.
Day and Night Creams
Keeping skin hydrated during both morning and night is essential for making sure skin stays bright, hydrated and healthy. We carry locally made day and night creams.
Oil cleanser is a great cleansing option, especially for those with sensitive or dry skin. It can remove makeup and other impurities without removing or damaging the skin’s natural protective and necessary oil layer, unlike detergent cleansers.
Using a konjac sponge, which becomes soft and flexible when exposed to water, is a great tool for gentle skin exfoliation and cleansing.
Using a jade roller on your skin is an effective way to give yourself a facial massage, which helps to improve circulation in the skin (which can improve the appearance of skin) and can help massage products into the skin, leading to better product penetration.
Choosing the right eco-friendly skincare product is important for maintaining optimal skin health. But before you dive in to trying any new skincare product, we always recommend performing a patch test before applying any produce all over your face or body to ensure you will not have any adverse reaction. Then, once the patch test shows you that you’re good to go and don’t react to the product, enjoy your eco-friendly, low or zero-waste skincare products knowing both you and the planet are feeling and looking great when you use it!
