The luxury space for organic and sustainably produced beauty products has grown exponentially this past year. Here are some of the best brands on the market made with pure, natural ingredients for those that take clean beauty seriously but don’t want to sacrifice elegance or a luxury look and feel. We always test everything we feature to ensure we only suggest the very best!
Rahua’s story begins deep in the Amazon rainforest thousands of years ago where the women of the Quechua-Shuar tribe discovered the beautifying properties of Rahua oil. The oil’s fortifying and shine-inducing effect on hair and nourishing and lasting glow on skin, quickly elevated it to an honored ingredient that has solidified its place in Amazonian beauty rituals for centuries. Today, Fabian and his wife and partner, Anna Ayers, have created Amazon Beauty® to transport you to a place un-changed, un-touched and unveil its abundance of restorative ingredients that will reconnect you to Mother Nature.
