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


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 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.


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.


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.


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.


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 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‘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.


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.


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’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.

Beauty oils have been used as far back as ancient Egypt. Even though there has been an “oil-free” trend in recent years, beauty oils are here to stay.

Graydon Clinical Luxury SkinCare at Etiket

I am always looking for new products and brands to complete our selection of skincare ...

Read More →

Graydon Clinical Luxury SkinCareI am always looking for new products and brands to complete our selection of skincare and more recently I have wanted to find a brand to help complete our natural skincare selection. Although we have great options with Tata Harper, Consonant, and Pai, I feel we have room for a few more and Graydon Clinical Luxury Skincare definitely has its place at Etiket.

Why Graydon Clinical Luxury Skincare?

First of all I wanted to find something made in Canada if possible. I know we have great skin care resources here and also because of the fluctuation of our Canadian dollar. I was approached by Mitchell from Graydon about six months back and I started to take a look at who and what they were – or I should say, who is Graydon and what is her philosophy on skincare. I liked what I saw and then as fate would have it, Graydon was coming to Montreal so we set up a meeting on a Saturday afternoon to get to know each other and her products. Wherever possible I like to meet the person who is behind a brand – be it skincare, fragrance or make-up. I think that when you meet the creator you learn more about the philosophy of the brand, and the culture of the company, which is going to come through in the actual products and eventually in the relationship that you will build together.

Why the tagline Clinical Luxury?

That was my first question for Graydon as she started to lay out her products.
The clinical part derives from the following:
• The products contain bioactive ingredients which work to maintain and restore the youthful beauty in your skin. Filled with omega rich oils, antioxidants, phytosterols, linoleic and alpha-linolenic acid, carotenoids, high levels of both tocotrienols and tocopherols (which are the natural isomers of Vitamin E), flavonoids and a plethora of vitamins and minerals, the ingredients and research within the line offers you unparalleled quality and product functionality.
• You will not find any mineral oils, chemicals, parabens or sulfates. No artificial dyes or synthetic aromas. It is gluten free, and almost all vegan, and organic whenever possible. There is no use of nut derived ingredients due to the prevalence of nut related allergies. (They are not certified nut-free as they are not produced in a certified nut free laboratory.)
The luxury part is easy to see and feel once you start using the products. They are simple and effective and feel and smell beautiful.

Who is Graydon?

GraydonAs we continued our conversation and I tried the different products I also learned about Graydon’s journey and what brought her to skincare.
She was a yoga instructor into holistic health and interested in the culinary world where she saw, learned and studied the power of plant-based ingredients to nourish and protect our skin. The first product she made (in her kitchen) was The Putty, and she made it for her yoga students who were dealing with skin issues. She and the brand have come a long way since then.

What you will find in Graydon SkinCare?

• Plant powered ingredients that have transformative, nutrient dense qualities that are easily absorbed so that your skin gets the nutrients it needs.
• Whenever possible, ingredients used are sourced organic plant based ingredients from Canadian growers and manufacturers such as broccoli and berry seeds oil. Outside of Canada, they have developed partnerships with fair trade farmers in India to source Ayurvedic ingredients such as rosewater. Another one of their favourite food grade ingredients is manuka honey (with bee venom) known for its anti-inflammatory healing ability, sourced from New Zealand.

I took prednisone at for almost 2 years, it worked well against the suffering PMR I was almost rid of it and then had antibodies against a coagulation factor, so again with prednisone start with 80mg. and after half a year left off, completely, very slowly mined. I only suffer from moderate stiffness now. Otherwise OK.

My favourite Graydon products

By the end of our meeting I was convinced from what I had heard that Gradyon was right for Etiket, but then the next step was to try the products. I always try all products that we have in the store and then have members of my team try them to get their feedback. I happen to be very in to natural skincare these days. I like the texture, feel and smell and as I do take good care of my skin, I am looking more to maintain than to deal with skin problems like acne, or rosacea, okay maybe some age spots…..

One thing I am very big on these days is face oil. I like what they are all about and I also like the feel of them on the skin. There is great power in oils made with the right ingredients – antioxidant rich, soothing to the skin – the last thing they are is greasy or heavy, or at least not the ones we have at Etiket.
Serum_Wood_2_1024x1024Graydon’s is perfect. The Detox + Renew Serum, as it is called, does everything I think a face oil should do. This one is rich in antioxidants because of the Canadian raspberries, blueberries and cranberries. It also has other ingredients that help it to be anti-inflammatory and to help in combination with sun protection. AND it smells and feels beautiful and leaves no residue. Use it on its own or mixed in with your day or night cream. I like to use it as Graydon suggests in combination with the Face Food – a toner that like all of her products, is filled with ingredients that will make a difference in your skin and skin health.
Elements_3_1024x1024One of the other products that I loved is the Elements Sun Cream Complex. Although not officially an SPF product, with 12.5% nano zinc oxide, this will help in the protection of your skin not only from the sun, but also from other environmental pollutants. I like it because it doesn’t leave my skin all white – a problem with my fair skin that can happen often with physical sunscreens – and it isn’t heavy. Something as a man I think I may be more sensitive too, but who wants a heavy cream on their skin, especially in the heat of the summer?
All_Over_Soap_Wood_1_1024x1024There is a great All Over Soap & Shampoo that I love to leave in the shower because it is good to use on your body, face or hair. With the simpleness of the ingredients, and no harmful ingredients, it is a simple all-in-one product.
There is also a fabulous Hand & Foot Relief Cream. As a triathlete, I use and abuse my feet and this cream actually made a difference and did not leave my feet all greasy, which is a complaint of mine and often stops me from using a foot cream even though I need one.

I could continue with The Green Cream, the All Over Elixir Oil, the Aloe Cleanser, etc. If you are looking to try something new or to add to your regular skincare products, I would suggest you give Graydon a try. Used all together, the Graydon products will help you to have a complete, holistic and balanced approach to your everyday skincare regimen. Discover all of our Graydon Clinical Luxury products HERE.

Master Mixer
Every season there seems to be too many must have beauty products that are really not that must have and not that new either. The Master Mixer from RMS Beauty however is exactly that: NEW and a MUST HAVE! Created by Rose-Marie Swift, the veteran make-up artist behind RMS Beauty and a staunch advocate of healthy beauty, this new product will help you change your make up collection without buying a whole new wardrobe of colour.

The universally flattering rose-gold cream can be used all on its own as a luminizer (a term that Swift actually invented), or you can layer it on top of your other colour cosmetics, or yes, even mix it right in. It will brighten up your skin wherever you put it and don’t worry, there is no shimmer or heaven forbid…. glitter! As with many of the RMS products, it is like magic. And we have tried it with powders and it works just as well.

I have wanted to create a product like this for a long time, the one product I have been missing in my kit. The Master Mixer transforms any of my products with the perfect warm rose gold that is so flattering on anyone. Used alone or mixed with my Living Luminizer it effortlessly blends over the cheek bones, brow bones, down the bridge of the nose, bow of the lips and even the eye lid for a subtle, sexy gold shimmer. Magic truly happens when this product is combined to any of your lipsticks resulting in the most gorgeous, refined iridescence imaginable to your lips.  Blends perfectly with both powders or creams. Rose-Marie Swift.

You don’t need any extra tools, just use your fingers or a brush and go back and forth between the Master Mixer and your other products. Try layering it on top of RMS Lip2Cheek in Diabolique, a deep-burgundy cream or mix it in with the Buriti Bronzer to create a soft-focus bronze effect. We think half the fun is seeing where we can use it and the results are always luminous, soft and natural.

Makeup Review: RMS Beauty – Natural & Organic Makeup

  When it comes to makeup, I tend to go for the barely there, “no, ...

Read More →



When it comes to makeup, I tend to go for the barely there, “no, I am not wearing makeup” look. I don’t want to spend an hour in the morning primping and painting my face. My coffee time is far more valuable. At the same time, I want to walk out my door glowing and perfectly fresh-faced. Perhaps living in Amsterdam for two years had something to do with my new lackadaisical approach to makeup and it was actually in Amsterdam that I first came across the brand RMS Beauty. Small pots of magic then became my entire makeup arsenal. I started out with the “un” cover-up in #33 and a pot of lip2cheek in ‘Smile’. That was pretty much all I used daily. Add a few swipes of mascara and I was good to go! Total time in front of the mirror: five minutes.

What I love about RMS Beauty is the formulation. Not only is RMS Beauty natural and organic, it’s also non-toxic, and designed to heal and nourish the skin. What makes RMS Beauty different from other natural cosmetic brands is that each product is made with raw, food grade, organic ingredients in their natural state, allowing their “living properties” to rejuvenate the skin. They are free of harmful chemicals, synthetic preservatives and GMOs. These nourishing ingredients work synergistically with the skin to promote hydration, softness, and luminosity.

When I found out that we were going to be bringing in RMS Beauty to Etiket, I was over the moon! In just a few weeks, these colourful pots have been flying off the shelf. No one can seem to resist after trying the lip2cheek just once. Gorgeous creamy colour that glides on to the skin so beautifully with just one finger, and the result is fresh and youthful looking skin due to hydrating ingredients such as shea butter, jojoba, argan oil, rosemary and other nourishing minerals. Find the perfect colour and you will be hooked!

Here I am wearing IMG_9791“un” cover-up #44, lip2cheek in ‘promise’ with simply vanilla lip&skin balm and a touch of ‘living luminizer’ to highlight cheekbones and eyebrows.
