What the Etiket Team is Gifting for Mother’s Day

Some of our team members share their top Mother's Day picks!

As you probably know by now, Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Do you know what you’re getting your mom? To help conjure up some inspiration, we’ve asked our team to share what they’ll be gifting their mom this Mother’s Day. Here are a few of their suggestions.

No one lights up a room quite like Jill, so a pop of pink on the lip is the perfect gift. Tata Harper’s lip creme in Bubbly is chic, bright, and luxurious. Just like you Mum!
JULES, Makeup Coordinator, Etiket Toronto
“Just like this fragrance, my mom has always been warm, inviting, sweet and bubbly. Not to mention, fragrance has been something special we’ve bonded over since I was a little girl!”
KYLA, Makeup Specialist, Etiket Toronto
“I’ve decided to gift my mom this scent because it reminds me of her favourite lemon ginger tea. We’re going to Curaçao to celebrate Mother’s Day so a fresh tropical scent is perfect for the occasion.”
JESSE, Fragrance Specialist, Etiket Toronto
“My mom believed the first thing people noticed about you is your smile, and she loved to smile! She also loved a long-lasting lip gloss, just like Wonderblush’s lip oil in geranium (which is also her favourite flower).”
ANNE MARIE, Boutique & Spa Director, Etiket Toronto
“I’d say practicality is my mom’s last name! She loves small and easy-to-use products, so a little palette like the RMS Lip2Cheek has everything that she needs for a pop of colour in her makeup!”
LUIZA, Makeup Specialist, Etiket Toronto
“My mom’s beauty routine isn’t complete without her lipstick! The ILIA Color Block Lipstick in Rosette is the perfect soft burgundy for her fair complexion, blue eyes and silver hair.”
MEREDITH, Skincare Specialist, Etiket Toronto
“After smelling this alluring scent, it reminded me so much of my Mom and the aura she projects. It really feels like a big hug from her. Growing up a Mama’s boy, I would always witness her wanting to smell the most unique fragrances and she always wore scents that were fruity, bold and captivating. Opus Kore is a scent that I find embodies the core of who my Mom is.”
ALLAN, Fragrance Coordinator, Etiket Toronto
“For as long as I can remember, my mother has used a body moisturizer every day after showering, and almost every year on Mother’s Day, I gift her one. She likes the creamy versions, which moisturize deeply but are quickly absorbed. This year, I’ll be introducing her to Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Body Cream. I’m sure she’ll love it!”
KARINE, Marketing Director, Etiket HQ, Montreal
“When I think of my mother, I dream of her love of tea and floral, slightly powdery fragrances. Inlé is a cloud of osmanthus and mate, comforting and delicate like my mother. One of the first fragrances I recommended to her, and one of her favourites!”
MARIANNE, Fragrance Coordinator, Etiket Montreal
“I love this body cream, it’s so moisturizing, comfortable on the body and 100% natural. Plus with the refreshing scent of grapefruit and cucumber, it’s perfect for spring and summer!”
VERONICA, Head Makeup Artist, Etiket Montreal
“A perfect gift for moms who love skincare and that will complement their skincare routine, this red light therapy LED mask boosts collagen for smoother, plumper skin.”
MARION, Aesthetician, Etiket Montreal

Etiket Team Favourites

From skincare and hair care to makeup and fragrance, let's delve into some of our team's current favourites, shall we?

In honour of Valentine’s Day, we asked some of our team members to share the Etiket products that captured their hearts! From skincare and hair care to makeup and fragrance, let’s delve into some of their current favourites, shall we?

JORDANNA
Holistic Aesthetician / Etiket Montreal

All Purpose Skin Cream by Egyptian Magic
It’s amazing for hydration, creating a stronger barrier, healing and leaving your skin looking dewy.

Vitamin-Infused Cream Blush by Tata Harper
A natural look that is good for the skin and gives a nice boost to a dull winter complexion.

Leave-In Treatment by Rahua
I love how this nourishes the hair helping any split or dry ends recover.

Delina La Rosée EDP by Parfums de Marly
Classy, feminine and anticipating spring.


IVY
Aesthetician / Etiket Montreal

Moisturizing Lip Butter in Pink Petal by Huna

To keep my lips hydrated all day long, I love reaching for this lip butter with skin-nourishing ingredients.

La Laque Tinted Lip Oil by Wonderblush

I love this tinted lip oil as it provides shine without stickiness – it feels great on my lips!

Elixir by Viviscal Pro

This is such a great addition to my haircare routine to promote thicker-looking hair.

Sunset Hour EDP by Goldfield & Banks

It smells like summer!


SOPHIA
Beauty & Fragrance Advisor / Etiket Montreal

The Base Face Milk by ILIA

It is so light yet so hydrating and a great primer before applying makeup. It gives the most dewy and glowy look!

Lip2Cheek in Modest by RMS Beauty

It is so easy to blend, gives the most natural flush and is the perfect addition to an everyday makeup look!

Spiritualized Dry Shampoo by R+CO

I have never seen a product like this that refreshes hair without the heavy powdery feeling from usual dry shampoos. It adds volume and dimension back into my hair!

Casamorati Dama Bianca EDP by Xerjoff +
Molecule 01 + Black Tea EDT by Escentric Molecules

I have been loving Xerjoff’s Casamorati Dama Bianca layered with Escentric Molecules’ Molecule 01 + Black Tea. It has the perfect combination of sweet and fresh and is a recommendation I got from Emma, our fragrance specialist, to layer them! So gorgeous.


PAULE
Aesthetician / Etiket Montreal

Super Anti-Aging Face Cream by Dr. Barbara Sturm

This absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves the skin looking fresh, youthful and radiant.

Cream Stay Eye Shadow Stick in Keepsake by Glo Skin Beauty

This cool-toned bronze with a metallic finish looks stunning as an all-over lid colour.

Intensive Hair Oil by Sachajuan

This nourishing oil repairs while adding shine. My hair absorbs it weightlessly without leaving residue.

Baccarat Rouge 540 EDP by Maison Francis Kurkdjian

A cult classic, I can vouch for its lovely, lingering scent that will get you compliments.


GENEVIÈVE
Customer Experience Coordinator / Etiket Headquarters, Montreal

Gut Glow by Bend Beauty

Without going into details, when the digestive tract is healthy, the skin glows!

Lip Karma in Chai by Sahajan + Le Fard Blush in Framboise by Wonderblush

This Lip Karma keeps my lips hydrated and the taste is delectable, like my fave drink! I have also been loving Le Fard Blush, specifically in the shade Framboise by Wonderblush. It is long-lasting, and a little goes a long way.

Cool Wind Perfect Air-Dry Crème by R+CO

This styling creme has a lightweight texture and feel, perfect for my fine hair. No blow-drying needed!

Au Chalet Candle by Etiket

I love lighting this candle after work. It feels so cozy and relaxing.


ANNE MARIE
Boutique & Spa Director / Etiket Toronto

GrenzCine Serum by Vivier

This has been a game-changer in my routine! It has added so much plumpness to my skin and helped heal residual effects from a recent bout of atopic dermatitis.

Limitless Lash Mascara by ILIA

Most mascaras make my eyes water or they do not lengthen and volumize my very sparse lashes. This mascara has fixed all of that and the wand gets every lash.

I Don’t Know What by D.S. & Durga

Fun name and a conversation starter. Warm but not heavy, fresh but not zesty, and I get so many compliments on it.


KARINE
Marketing Director / Etiket Headquarters, Montreal

The Rich Cream by Augustinus Bader

This is the cream I’ve been reaching for this winter. It keeps my skin soothed and moisturized, without leaving it oily.

Total Eye 3-in-1 Renewal Care

This product acts as a skincare product and as a corrector for both the complexion and dark circles. A tiny amount is enough to neutralize the colour of dark circles and facial imperfections.

Biorepair Scalp & Hair Therapy Kit by Colorproof

When I was first introduced to Colorproof’s Biorepair collection, I was rather skeptical. After several months of use, I’m convinced of its effectiveness. The 3 products (and the brush) work in synergy to establish a healthy scalp and follicles, revealing thicker, fuller hair overtime.


ÉDOUARD
Beauty & Fragrance Advisor / Etiket Montreal

Derma-V by Vivier

The perfect soothing night cream to recover from retinol and acids during winter time, and it also prevents flaky dry skin! 

Le Hâle Bronzing Powder | Soleil by Wonderblush

It creates the perfect faux sunkissed look without the skin damage… always wear your SPF!

The Leave-In Hair Treatment by Augustinus Bader

It repairs and tames frizziness for a smooth look! 

Molecule 01 + Guaiac Wood EDT & Molecule 01 + Patchouli EDT by Escentric Molecules

I’ve been receiving so many compliments from this mix! Getting stopped everywhere for compliments. The perfect duo to make an impression on your Valentine!

Top 5 Best Launches at Etiket in 2023

Find out about all the best launches at Etiket this past year!

At the end of the year, we always like to look back on the past 12 months. Here are the 5 launches, 4 brands and one product, that made Etiket’s Best Launches of 2023 list.

Best New Brand & Product Launches this Past Year

1. Le Rouge à Ongles:
This French brand introduces us to the neighbourhoods of Paris through each of its bottles, the latter which are the perfect size, that is, neither too big, nor too small. These make you dream of owning the entire collection, allowing you to change the colour of our nails to suit your mood.
2. Wonder Valley
This range, with its hippy, cool, underground feel, was a revelation this year. As fashionista and style queen Jenna Lyon says, this range “does some really interesting things, and I’m really excited by everything it does”. It inspires us to live a healthy, simple and effective lifestyle. A collection of products that we love to gift, over and over again!
3. The Light Salon
If you’re skeptical about those LED masks that look like they’re straight out of a horror movie, it’s because you haven’t tried them yet! The ultimate experience and spa treatment in the comfort of your own home. Both effective and relaxing, you can wear it while immersed in a good book, working (thanks to telecommuting in recent years) or watching your favourite movie.
4. Wonderblush
We always love to be presented with high-performance products, and we love them even more when they’re local. We first fell in love with the woman behind the brand, and it was when we tested her products that we realized it was a perfect match: a local brand, a lovely founder, eco-responsible packaging and formulas free from ingredients known or recognized as toxic or harmful.
5. The One Face Cream by NUORI:
This is what you would call a gem! With The One, Nuori wanted to give us THE product that would somehow become the love of our lives… or at least of our routine. It’s got it all: a unique, multi-functional formula, high-performance ingredients, it’s simple and, above all, once you’ve tried it, you don’t feel like going anywhere else. 😉 We do everything we can to have it on hand, and we replenish it as soon as the bottle is finished. No wonder it’s become NUORI’s best-seller.

Get Your Hands Winter Ready With This Routine

The founder of Le Rouge à Ongles, Elise Khettat, unveils her tips to maintain smooth and moisturized hands just in time for winter.

With the change in seasons and cold-weather here to stay, we asked the founder of Le Rouge à Ongles, Elise Khettat, to unveil her tips to maintain smooth and moisturized hands right in time for winter.

CAN YOU SHARE YOUR HAND CARE ROUTINE?

Elise Khettat — Founder of Le Rouge à Ongles

First and foremost, I believe that taking care of your hands is just as important as taking care of your face. I abide by a routine that I follow once a week and daily for soft, hydrated and plumped hands.

Each week, I treat my hands to a real moment of relaxation. After washing them thoroughly with a gentle soap, I apply the Smoothing Body Scrub from Tata Harper to dry skin. I massage them delicately for several minutes, remembering to pass over each nail in order to exfoliate the contour of the nails and rinse it off with clean water.

What I love most about this scrub is that it exfoliates dead skin away while preparing my hands to receive a manicure, and that the exfoliating particles are biodegradable. It basically does it all! 

Next, to fully unwind, I apply a thick layer of the Supreme Moisture Mask from Nuori, without forgetting the contour of my nails and my cuticles. I leave it on until absorbed.

Then, I do an oil-based self-massage on my hands. I particularly like The Body Oil from Augustinus Bader which will stimulate the functions of the skin barrier and prevent transepidermal water loss which makes the skin more sensitive to dehydration. As with the previous steps, I also massage around the nails to nourish my cuticles.

On a daily basis, I apply a moisturizing hand cream 2 to 3 times a day – or as often as my skin needs it, especially in winter as our skin tends to dry out very quickly in the cold. I recommend The Hand Treatment from Augustinus Bader as it is ultra nourishing and soothing.

And I always carry a cuticle oil that I apply several times a day. The Nail + Cuticle Creme from Huna is a very practical format to have in your pocket or bag at all times! Moisturizing your cuticles helps soften them and gently push them back for a clean nail base.

Final tip: if would like to apply nail polish following your hand care routine, remember to degrease your nails with a gentle nail polish remover, as cream or oil residue on the nails prevents the varnish from applying and lasting long-term.

FINALLY, WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE SHADES OF NAIL POLISH TO WELCOME FALL AND WINTER?

My favourite shades for this time of the year are ArsenalLuxembourg and Opéra.

Best Summer Skincare Routine According to Our Aestheticians

We asked some of our aestheticians to share some advice to keep skin looking and feeling healthy this summer. Discover what products and treatments they recommend!

New skincare challenges, such as using sufficient sun protection and maintaining well-hydrated skin, are brought on by the warmer weather. We asked some of our aestheticians to share some advice to keep skin looking and feeling its best this summer. Discover what products and treatments they recommend!


LAURA, Aesthetician at The Etiket Spa

What is your current AM skincare routine?

As a first step, I reach for the Tata Harper Superkind Softening Cleanser which works to gently dissolve buildup and impurities. I then apply the Environ Youth Essentia Vita-Peptide C-Quence Serum 1. It helps combat the visible signs of ageing to create even, smoother and healthier-looking skin. To moisturize, I use the SkinCeuticals AOX+ Eye Gel both in the AM and PM on my eye contour and the Environ Super Moisturiser+ all over my face. I finish with the Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield Flex SPF 50, a lightweight tinted sunscreen that offers buildable coverage.

What is your current PM skincare routine?

Three times per week, I would use the Tata Harper Superkind Refining Cleanser, a gentle exfoliator that simultaneously nourishes and refines to reveal a nice glow. The Pai Skincare Middlemist Seven Camellia & Rose Gentle Cream Cleanser paired with a damp muslin cloth to remove makeup and sunscreen, followed by a double cleanse using Tata Harper’s Clarifying Cleanser. To finish, I apply the Tata Harper Retinoic Nutrient Face Oil to nourish and strengthen the skin.

How do you prevent pigmentation?

I would recommend any Vitamin C serum and retinoic oil, as well as the Tata Harper Brightening Facial with Multi-Acid Peel treatment (great for glow, pigmentation, acne and scarring). It’s a HOLY GRAIL! 🙂

What facial would you recommend in the summer months? 

The Tata Harper Etiket Signature Facial is suitable for all skin types and is amazing for blood circulation.

What would you change for your summer skincare routine? 

For summer, I like adding a purifying/resurfacing mask weekly. Here are a few options to try!


JORDANNA, Holistic Aesthetician at The Etiket Spa

What is your current AM skincare routine?

To start, I wash my face with the Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser and spray on Pai Skincare’s Century Flower Lotus & Hyaluronic Acid Barrier Support Mist. I follow with two more Tata Harper products: the Rejuvenating Serum and the Refillable Restorative Eye Crème which brightens, smooths, de-puffs, and hydrates to rejuvenate signs of aging and fatigue. To moisturize and brigthen my skin, I apply the Kat Burki Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream and follow with Pai Skincare’s The Light Fantastic, a fast-absorbing dry oil containing ceramides to help build strong long-term resilience against irritation. As last steps, I opt for the Colorescience Sunforgettable GLOW Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 and their Total Eye™ 3-in-1 Renewal Care, available in 4 colours, to keep my skin protected and my under eye looking rested.

What is your current PM skincare routine?

I first double cleanse with the Tata Harper Nourishing Oil Cleanser, followed by Pai Skincare’s Phaze PHA Clarifying Face Wash which helps clarify congested skin. Next, I apply the Tata Harper Concentrated Brightening Essence, Concentrated Brightening Serum, Superkind Fortifying Moisturizer and Boosted Contouring Eye Balm which leave my skin feeling nice and plump!

How do you prevent pigmentation?

I suggest using nighttime brightening products, sunscreen with SPF 50, and Tata Harper’s Superkind Radiance Mask and Resurfacing Mask.

What facial would you recommend in the summer months? 

Tata Harper’s Sculpting Facial: the anti-gravity skin lift! This lavish treatment pairs green bio-technology with a cupping facial massage technique to firm and lift the look of your skin, and a rejuvenating neck and décolleté treatment helps instantly revitalized the skin with a youthful glow.

What would you change for your summer skincare routine? 

Products with high SPF and a fabulous sun hat! 🙂


MARION, Aesthetician at The Etiket Spa

What is your current AM skincare routine?

In the morning, I wash my face with my Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser, apply my SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF vitamin C serum, followed by my Tata Harper Water-Lock Moisturizer and my Elta MD UV Clear SPF 46 sunscreen.

What is your current PM skincare routine?

In the evening, I do my double cleansing routine to remove makeup with two products from Tata Harper: I thoroughly wash my skin with my makeup remover oil, the Nourishing Oil Cleanser, followed by my Purifying Cleanser. I then apply my soothing SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Gel, my Dr. Barbara Sturm The Better B Niacinamide Serum, and finally my Tata Harper Water-Lock Moisturizer.

How do you prevent pigmentation?

To prevent the appearance of pigmentation spots, I use a vitamin C serum (SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF) in the morning, followed by sunscreen (Elta MD UV Clear SPF 46).

What facial would you recommend in the summer months? 

The treatment I recommend this time of year is a HydraFacial to deeply cleanse the skin, reveal radiance and plump up dehydrated skin.

What would you change for your summer skincare routine? 

I would recommend using fewer oils and prioritizing more water-based gel textures to continue moisturizing without making the skin greasy, and to exfoliate skin more.

Founder: Clarissa de Queiroz, Montreal, QC

Brand Story:

Clarissa was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, and haircare has always been an important part of her heritage and culture.

Monsillage

Founder: Isabelle Michaud, Montreal, QC

Brand Story:

It is early in life that Isabelle began her love affair with perfumes and all things scented and nicely packaged.

Isabelle finds inspiration in past travels, one-of-a-kind experiences, personal impressions and glimpses of grace for the creation of her fragrances.

Libertine Fragrance

Founder: Joshua Smith, Edmonton, AB

Brand Story:

Libertine Fragrance was founded in 2015 by Joshua, a forester turned designer turned perfumer. Josh’s vision is to marry the creativity of design, the beauty of nature and the pleasure of the senses into an experience of escapism in a bottle.  

What They Offer:

All of their fragrances are crafted by hand in small batches in Edmonton, Alberta. A mixture of essential oils and carefully chosen aroma molecules are weighed, mixed and diluted with pure perfumers alcohol. The experimenting, blending, mixing and packaging are all done by hand in very small batches, usually 100 or so bottles.

T. Lees

Founder: Tricia Lees, Montreal, QC

Brand Story:

A fragrance can cause an avalanche of memories, influence people’s moods and even affect their performance at work. T. Lees’ goal is to create candles for all tastes and activities, infusing them into high-quality products designed to nourish the mind, body and soul. 

What They Offer:

Making A Difference With Conscious Beauty

Building A Beautiful Tomorrow.

Earth Day was first celebrated on April 22nd, 1970. Since then, it has become a major day for worldwide environmental action.

We wanted to highlight some of our brands that are dedicating their time, resources, and energy to bettering our planet through their sustainable practices: whether through the ingredients sourced, packaging used, the formulation process, or even at a corporate level.

Keep reading to learn about what some of our brands are doing to make a difference.

Conscious Beauty: A Commitment to Sustainability

TATA HARPER

Headquartered in Vermont on a 1,200-acre farm, Tata Harper produces 100% natural and non-toxic, premium skincare products made from the world’s most sought-after ingredients. Some of the ingredients are sourced from around the world, but many are grown on their farm. The majority of their packaging is made of glass, and this is a decision the brand conscientiously made since glass is highly recyclable and can be reused over and over. What little plastic they do use is necessary for the function of the packaging and is as eco-friendly as possible. The plastic resin for their tubes is derived from sugar cane, which means it is made from a renewable resource instead of petroleum. They also use 100% post-consumer materials, or recycled paperboard, and use soy-based ink for printing. They are working toward offering refillable products, a process that has already come to fruition with a couple of their products. All research and development, formulations, packaging, marketing and distribution are done in-house, allowing them to control every step of the process, from formulation to shipment to the customer. Their commitment to eco-friendly practices reflects in their products that are certified cruelty-free, vegetarian and Ecocert.

Etiket is proud to offer Tata Harper products since our launch in 2011.


AGENT NATEUR

Agent Nateur is dedicated to creating natural products that are effective and safe, while educating on the importance of independent thinking and research. They are committed to sourcing the purest, non-gmo, effective, non-toxic ingredients from Europe and small suppliers in the United States. Founder Jena Covello formulates Agent Nateur in Grasse, Paris and Los Angeles. All of the Agent Nateur products are organic or wild-crafted, non-GMO, cruelty-free, and Ecocert certified, guaranteeing their dedication to sustainability and socially conscious practices. Every Agent Nateur formulation is abundant in natural vitamins, minerals, oils, and plant extracts purchased—with no expense spared—from only the most reputable sources, setting a precedent for natural beauty companies around the world. Whenever possible, the packaging used is made of glass and other recyclable materials.

First launched with their flagship holi (stick) deodorant, Agent Nateur offers a beautiful line of luxury, all-natural skincare that is safe for the body and planet.


AUGUSTINUS BADER

From clean ingredients to responsibly sourced materials, Augustinus Bader‘s practice is guided by a set of green values and driven by over 30 years of scientific research, resulting in their clean formulations and efficacious products. Their products contain the highest quality ingredients – high potency botanicals and clean actives that are sustainably sourced, and clean, bio-engineered actives are used where possible to reduce environmental impact. An estimated 70% of their packaging is plastic-free, and they continue to move toward more sustainable materials such as ECOCERT/COSMOS certified glass, and transitioning all packaging to being post-consumer recycled.

Augustinus Bader has also created refills for a handful of their products to encourage recycling, with an estimated 80%-90% of their containers being fully recyclable.


PAI SKINCARE

As a certified organic brand, sustainability and catering to sensitive skin types are always at the heart of what Pai Skincare does: their products, formulas, certifications and everything in between. Founder Sarah Brown’s inspiration behind the line came from her determination to find products that would be soothing and non-irritating for her hyper-sensitive and acne-prone skin, hence the idea to create her own. Every Pai product is formulated and manufactured in their London HQ. From conception to creation, all ingredients are sourced, hand-picked and tested by a devoted team of sensitive skin experts at their own in-house Research & Development lab and manufacturing facility. They are independently certified by COSMOS (Soil Association), Cruelty Free International and The Vegan Society.

Pai Skincare is also B Corp certified, which means they are part of a global movement that is committed to making business a force for good. As a B Corp, they make a commitment to continue to do the right thing, while being accountable and transparent when it comes to steps they are taking to reduce their carbon footprint.


DR. BARBARA STURM

The Dr. Barbara Sturm ethos includes a sense of permanent responsibility to our planet and the welfare of all living beings. Dr. Sturm – a German doctor, orthopedics specialist, aesthetics expert and anti-inflammatory pioneer – and her team are constantly working to improve the way they produce and package their products. As part of their ongoing efforts to contribute to an eco-friendly future, they have significantly reduced the amount of packaging containing their products, and use recyclable paper from sustainable forestry for product leaflets and boxes. They are changing their plastic jars to recyclable glass, and using reusable cotton and velvet bags rather than plastic while phasing out cellophane wrappers. Their manufacturers have committed to CO2-neutral processes including the use of green electricity and eco-gas.

Dr. Barbara Sturm is rigidly cruelty-free and their ingredients and components are locally sourced whenever possible.


ILIA

Since launching in 2011, ILIA‘s core purpose has been to protect and revive, both our skin and the Earth. They believe that, as a business, it is their responsibility to give back to the planet we call home. Founder Sasha Plavsic challenged the conventions of clean beauty to create something radically new through safe, potent, Leaping Bunny certified formulas that protect and revive your skin. With deforestation being one of the greatest threats to our planet today, ILIA is committing 1% of Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 sales to environmental causes—starting with reforestation in the Amazon, which plays a crucial role in climate regulation – a key step in reviving and protecting the planet. Their goal is to plant 1 million trees in the Amazon rainforest in Peru, Brazil, and Ecuador by the end of 2023 in partnership with One Tree Planted.

The ethical-sustainable approach is embodied in ILIA‘s products, which are filled with up to 85% certified organic bioactive botanicals that nourish and rejuvenate the skin.


NUORI

NUORI is headquartered in Copenhagen, one of the most sustainable and energy-efficient cities in the world. Therefore, it is only natural that they are committed to continuously improving their environmental footprint. NUORI’s products are made using only ingredients of natural origin: they come from nature and will return to nature. They operate through a small batch production every 10-12 weeks, which allows them to make the freshest products on the market and only produce what is in fact needed. NUORI works together with global experts in cosmetics packaging and raw materials to ensure the highest quality and sustainability of their products. They use recycled materials where possible and only use FSC-certified materials.

From their quest for the best natural ingredients to their small batch production, NUORI is focused on delivering freshly blended, pure products at the peak of their power.


COOLA

COOLA‘s formulations are at least 70% organic, contain non-GMO ingredients, are rich in antioxidants and harness the power of plant cell actives to nourish and support healthy skin while protecting you from the sun’s harmful rays. They are conscious about what goes into their products, but they are equally as concerned with what they keep out. In fact, they follow a restricted ingredient list that goes beyond industry standards to exclude over a thousand questionable or harmful ingredients from all of their formulations. Their products are also non-gmo, vegan, gluten-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, cruelty-free and reef friendly. All of their fragrances are 100% natural, with all constituents extracted from plant sources. They have also reduced their plastic usage and their carbon footprint by having all of their tubes made from sustainably sourced sugarcane resin, which is 100% recyclable.

COOLA regularly donates to organizations to give back to the community and take action for the environment, such as donating gently used clothes to the homeless and saving the coral reef through restoration by planting new corals.


VINTNER’S DAUGHTER

From day one, founder April Gargiulo has woven sustainability into every part of her business. Vintner’s Daughter stands by its less is more philosophy, which centers on the belief that if one product can deliver a myriad of benefits, fewer products are needed, fewer are produced, and less natural resources are utilized. The ingredients used in their three products are sourced from responsible producers, many of which have used the same sustainable, organic farming practices for generations. They view their efforts around sustainable packaging, responsible sourcing, offsetting of their annual carbon emission and cruelty-free certifications, donations to support earth advocacy and certification as a California Green Business as simply the best, and most responsible way to do business. 

In 2022, Vintner’s Daughter was also awarded a B Corp Certification, bestowed to companies that live up to the highest environmental and social impact standards. They continue to seek ways to improve their sustainability efforts.


RAHUA

Sourced from the Amazon and created in New York City, Rahua was founded by renowned hairstylist and colorist Fabian Lliguin and his wife and partner Anna Ayers. After discovering the powers of Rahua oil – the star ingredient of Rahua products – the pair launched an ethical, plant-derived line to strengthen and transform hair. Their products are made with organic, natural, pure plant-derived ingredients that are vegan, cruelty-free and free of parabens, sulfates, and gluten. Their clean, non-toxic and highly concentrated formulas are filled into packaging that is recyclable, reusable and many are refillable, which allows for less consumption while delivering superior quality and preventing pollution of our waterways.

Born from a philanthropic mission, Rahua is dedicated to preserving the Amazon Rainforest; working with indigenous tribes to preserve their ancient knowledge, while sustaining the rainforest and the powerful ingredients it has to offer the world. 


RMS BEAUTY

RMS Beauty’s philosophy stems from the idea of sustainable and healthy makeup that is pure and luxurious, while the packaging is biodegradable, recyclable and reusable. Since the launch of RMS Beauty in 2009, they have meaningfully packaged many of their products in recyclable glass jars. RMS Beauty continues to source new or tried and true materials like the aluminum tubes of their Eyelights Cream Eyeshadows which are easy to recycle. They debuted their first refillable packaging for their primer in 2021 and continue to expand their refillable products with the launch of ReDimension Hydra Powder Blush and ReEvolve Natural Finish Foundation in 2022. They are proud to have transitioned all of their existing lids to 100% PCR for many of their products – wherever there is plastic, they incorporate PCR content as much as possible.

The founder of RMS Beauty, Rose-Marie Swift, is a master makeup artist with over 40 years of experience. The colours are deep, rich and can be mixed together, to create a personalized palette for every mood and occasion.
