Wild & Untamed Ingredients for Your Skin

Wild & Untamed Ingredients for Your Skin

WILD. UNTAMED. RAW.

Wild beauty goes beyond the natural, beyond the organic, and taps into the raw. As raw as rubbing a beet on your lips and cheeks for color.

Like drinking water straight from a glistening, pure waterfall. Picking a rose grown in its purest environment to take home and soak in water.

I’m sharing with you 3 women-owned brands that tap into the wild, using untamed ingredients from the earth.

Earth Tu Face founded by Sarah Buscho and Marina Storm

Every ingredient that we include in our products is there for a specific therapeutic reason. We do not use fillers of any kind, meaning every ingredient in our products is an “active” ingredient. All of our formulas are original, created and tested by us, on real people — never on animals. They are the best of the best. All of our products are made from organic, high quality, and food-grade ingredients sourced by us with the best natural compounds the earth has to offer. We formulate them to be concentrated and have a long life (average is 3.5 years).

Sarah and Marina’s Beliefs:

  • Truth and transparency in the personal care industry

  • Never putting on your skin what you would not put in your mouth

  • Minimal waste packaging

  • Avoiding synthetics & preservatives

Made with:

  • 100% plant-based, food grade ingredients

  • Ingredients chosen to heal your body & our planet

  • Non-GMO, plant derived vitamin E

  • Organic beeswax

  • Organic, virgin cold-pressed oils

  • Plant extracts hand chosen by herbalists

  • Reusable, compostable & recyclable containers

  • Here is their glossary of ingredients

EP’s Picks:

Jasmine Balm Botanical Perfume

The balm has the cutest packaging with a seashell! Earth Tu Face combines the pure flower oils of Jasmine Grandiflorum and Jasmine Sambac with organic safflower oil, raw, unfiltered beeswax and 100% plant-derived vitamin E.

It takes 8,000 handpicked blossoms to make just 1 tiny milliliter of Jasmine oil. 😳

Honey & Coconut Mask

Ingredients: organic honey, organic virgin coconut oil, organic garden rose petals, organic garden lavender flowers, & organic lavender essential oil.

Organic Rose & Geranium Lotion

The color comes from the 1000's of rose petals extracted into this natural cream base.

Rose cools redness and irritation. The Geranium balances skin oils and increases collagen production. Lavender will help relieve your stress, but it sadly won’t relieve any drama in your life.

Ingredients: rose petals, rose-geranium, lavender essential oils, water, sodium stearoyl glutamate (to emulsify), potassium sorbate (to preserve), gluconolacton (emulsifys by holding moisture), & sodium benzoate (to preserve)

Girl Undiscovered founded by Philippa Gebbe and Charlotte Devereux

Girl Undiscovered is a beauty brand owned and run by a female collective that supports and encourages female strength.

Philippa and Charlotte’s Beliefs:

We believe that naturalness and imperfection is loved. We are about feeling free and making rituals in our skin care and lives that make us feel beautiful. Making beautiful in each of our days. A kind of beauty that doesn’t demand processing or over-thinking who we are or how we should be, but focuses on a feeling. Of what wild feels like. Of what it feels to be free.

Girl Undiscovered works with women all over the world, learning their cultural beauty practices and rituals. The women not only honor the past, but create a future for their children.

These women and their families have become both friends and valued partners, whether growing honey on a windswept island in New Zealand, coconuts in a remote village in Bali or harvesting Thanaka in their own backyards in Myanmar.

  • Made in New Zealand

  • No animal testing

  • See their suppliers here

How It’s Made:

Made in small batches in handmade wooden molds

Traditional cold process method

Soaps cure for a minimum of six weeks to ensure that they last long & are mild

Our soaps contain lush oils and butters such as avocado oil, mango butter, fair-trade organic shea butter, cocoa butter, and rice bran oil. Our soaps clean without stripping away the natural oils owing to the glycerin (a humectant) formed in the soap making process. We lightly scent our soaps with 100% pure essential oils, fragrance oils, or essentials + fragrance oils blends. We've carefully selected our fragrance oils from reputable vendors ensuring that they do not contain nitro musk or phthalates. Clays, natural botanicals, oxides, and micas are used for colorants and texture. All colorants are skin-safe.
