Farm to Girl — Fresh, Fair and Free

 By Dawna Matthews:

I am lover of creams, oils, lip balms, and products for my face and body. I even dabble in mixing them up in my kitchen from time to time. I care so much about having the simplest, best, most natural, and delicious products on my face: I see it as food for my skin! The trouble I find is that sometimes I don’t have the time or resources to make my beauty products, but I don’t want to buy goods with heaps of chemicals and unpronounceable ingredients in them. Additionally, I like to switch my products around every 8 months and love finding something new that speaks true to my heart.

logoEnter Farm to Girl. This company uses simple ingredients in small batches to create products without harsh chemicals or ingredients. And that’s just the beginning! They use eco-friendly packaging and organic, fair trade, sustainable ingredients in all their products. How awesome is that?

Here are the details of this amazing company:

Products: They offer creams, lotions and balms with pure, directly sourced ingredients such as coconut oil, marula oil (super for anti-oxidants), beeswax and essential oils for all skin types. All of their products are 100% chemical free, paraben free, and free of all the other bad stuff; it’s as close to edible beauty as it can be. The ingredients label is simple, so consumers actually can pronounce and recognize the ingredients.

Fair Trade for Farmers: This company supports farm communities and cooperatives with every ingredient they use. All their sources are harvested in a sustainable manner beneficial to the environment. Not only do they care about sourcing the best products, but they also want to support the people who grow or farm the product and take care of the world we live in. Twenty per cent of profits from every product purchased supports women’s health and education. From coconut oil to honey, Each and every grower or bee keeper is ensured a fair trade price.

Eco-friendly: Every single product they offer comes in environmentally friendly packaging — glass jars and farm to girlmetal tins with recycled paper labels. By doing this, Farm to Girl is actively reducing its environmental footprint as well as ensuring that damaging plastic byproducts are not leached into skin. Additionally, Farm to Girl is starting a recycling program so customers can refill their containers with product and save the Earth even further.

I am so thrilled to see a company that is passionate and compassionate about everything they do, from sourcing to creating simple and chemical-free products, eco-friendly packaging, and giving back to the community. I can buy their products without sacrificing my beliefs or my love for delicious beauty products.
