I recently went to a cocktail party and trunk show at the beautiful Tribeca home of a fabulously chic and beautiful Danish makeup artist. Tata Harper, a Colombian-born skincare entrepreneur, was there to show off her amazing organic skincare products and to give mini-facials.
Now, I have to start by saying that I am JADED! Having spent 15 years as a fashion editor at a magazine, with every beauty product known to mankind landing on my desk at some point or another, it is very difficult to get me excited. I am cynical when it comes to beauty-product claims that they will change your skin—most of it is just clever marketing.
I LOVE This Line of Organic Skincare
Well, let me just say that I was blown away by Tata’s beauty products. Frustrated that all she could find in the marketplace was synthetic, “cancer juice” products, or natural ones that didn’t produce results, Tata set out on a 5-year quest to create the most exquisite, 100% natural, results-driven organic product line available.
All of the products are made, packaged, and shipped directly from her organic farm in Vermont—many of the potent ingredients are grown there as well. Every beauty product is free of synthetics and is completely nontoxic.
I must admit that I’m a sucker for yummy-smelling products and clean, chic, simple eco-friendly packaging. I don’t like “perfumey” smells because I find them too artificial, and I’m very picky about the smells I like. Tata’s organic products smell so divine I just cannot get enough of them! After applying them to my face with my fingers, I find myself smelling my hands all day!
This Skincare Line Is Natural & Eco-friendly
I love that Tata also practices what she preaches. She uses glass when possible, instead of plastic. She uses treeless labels. She buys her farm’s electricity from sustainable sources. Too many beauty companies market their products as “natural,” but they are filled with parabens and chemical-laden ingredients I can’t pronounce. To add insult to injury, most packaging is made cheaply in China, using too much fuel to ship from the other side of the earth, and then ultimately ending up in a landfill because it’s not recyclable!
Organic Facial Products with Great Results
I’ve been using Tata Harper organic skincare products for a few weeks now, and I truly love them. My skin looks radiant, and I feel good about the business I am helping to support. I try to live my life in a socially conscious way, and I have to factor what I put on my face every day into the overall equation.
