sneak peek #anfgb box 5: hana organic skincare – eye oil

The delicate area around your eyes will love the gentle, soothing and smoothing properties of this nourishing eye oil featured in the fifth #anfgb box on sale next Thursday the 30th! Learn more about HANA Organic Skincare.

Brand: There is no comfort in reading a list of chemicals when you look at your personal care ingredients. Most commercial skincare products contain highly toxic and irritating ingredients. Those ingredients are absorbed into your skin, and often cause allergic reactions and other skin sensitivities. For exactly those reasons, Karen Ries created HANA Organic Skincare in 2011. The products are handmade on Bainbridge Island, WA, in small batches, to assure freshness and well-monitored quality control. As a person with dry and sensitive skin (and a daughter with oily skin), it was important to develop an effective, yet very gentle skin care solution not only for herself, but for others that struggled with skin sensitivities. After becoming a certified herbalist, Karen turned the family kitchen into an organic skincare laboratory, using the medicinal herbs from her small garden. Eventually, the art and science of skin care came together, she moved to her studio, and HANA Organic Skincare was born (named after Karen’s daughter, Hana). The company continues to grow and with the help of Natalie Berry. This year, the two of them will remain committed to their labeling standards and support of local and international charities.
Product: The delicate area around your eyes will love the gentle, soothing and smoothing properties of this nourishing eye oil.
How to use: Shake well before each use. Apply one or two drops around the outer eye area. Avoid contact with the eye.
Ingredients: jojoba and rosehip seed oils; Vitamin E; rose essential oil. Gluten free/Vegan product.
