It’s crazy when people, *cough*, certain presidents, *cough*, dispute the presence of global warming. It is scientifically proven, you know. But, we’re living in a mass-opinion-matters land, where one Tweet can send digital thoughts flying. And they don’t have to be educated thoughts to gain momentum, either. For that and for my overall desire to create a healthier, longer-lasting planet, I find myself gravitating (gravity, another proven scientific fact), towards do good/feel good natural skincare products, like Weleda’s new Clarifying Facial Care Collection.
The do-good part is that the trio of Weleda’s Clarifying Gel Cleanser, Clarifying Lotion and Clarifying S.O.S. Gel, maintain balance within my combination (oily/dry/normal) skin. The regiment of washing, hydrating and targeting pimples keeps excess oil and unwanted spots off my face, while the line’s natural ingredients, inclusive of willow bark, witch hazel and licorice root extracts and jojoba and babassu oils, do their work by infusing my skin with their antibacterial, toning and soothing properties.
The feel-good part is when I look in the mirror and see healthy, clear skin reflected back at me. But that’s not all. The Clarifying Collection also has a do good/feel good combo effect.
According to the NATRUE standard, the collection is certified as being natural and crafted from non-synthetic fragrances and dyes, preservatives, silicones, parabens, phthalates, sodium-laurel-sulfate or ingredients with mineral origins. They’re also cruelty free. So not only is Weleda doing a good job by environmental standards (BTW, I received the trio in a clear, reusable, silicone Stasher storage bag, that’s BPA-free and non-toxic, so now I use it to cart veggie sticks, hard-boiled eggs and other snacks in my purse), they’re also helping me feel good, knowing that I’m doing my part to help the environment. After all, we want the planet Earth to flourish for a really long time.
