Perfect products for apres gym, ski, swimming or everyday at home
By Patti Pieetschmann
I only got to sample two of the new FarmHouse Fresh Organics Collections and if they are any indication of the the other six in the eight product launch, wowie. I took them to my health club Crunch where I slathered on the Blushing Agave Body Oil and Island Elixir Shea Butter after my steam bath and shower. Maui wowie did my skin feel soft and smell so nice (just a subtle scent).
FarmHouse Fresh Organics is the company's most highly-anticipated collection of body products certified to the NSF/ANSI 305 standard, which hug your skin caressing and moisturizing. "True to the FarmHouse Fresh philosophy of crafting our products around good food and drinks, this organic collection offers the same delicious scents and textures our customers have grown to love, while also providing verified authenticity and purity for consumers leading an organic lifestyle," states Shannon McLinden, CEO of FarmHouse Fresh®, in a press release. "This was a monumental labor of love, but we are proud to say that the launch day has come!"
Shannon says, "The detailed certification requires inspections of pick bins, gloves, equipment, storage containers, handling facilities, and filling processes to ensure certification standards are not compromised. Each certified jar bears the QAI auditing firm logo - so there is no question every product meets the certification standard, while using up to 95% certified-organic ingredients." QAI, one of the world's largest certifiers, is authorized by the USDA to certify organic operations to National Organic Program standards.
The Organics collection currently includes debut products which can be used for at-home, gym, hotel, beach for exfoliation and hydration for the hands and body, with additional facial products expected later this year.
The eight debut products include:
Big Bare Whipped Shea Butter Body Polish (8 oz; retail $42), an irresistibly softening body polish that rinses clean, smooths away rough spots and removes dead skin cells using certified-organic sugar crystals, and hydrates the body with certified-organic Shea butter and sunflower seed oil, offering a mix of lemon, bergamot and licorice notes; Sweet Milk Body Lotion (8 oz; retail $34) and
Sweet Milk Hand Lotion (2.4 oz; retail $16), a lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer that nourishes hands and body with certified organic shea butter, aloe vera leaf juice, sweet almond oil, vitamin E, while whetting the appetite with notes of sandalwood and tonka bean, which doesn't interfere with your perfume.
Island Elixir Shea Butter Body Cream (5 oz; retail $26).
Island Elixir Hand Cream (2.4 oz; retail $16), a rich, supple cream which soothes dry, chapped skin with certified-organic coconut oil, shea butter, aloe vera, sweet almond oil, honeysuckle, and cocoa butter, while bathing the body in delicate notes of pineapple and coconut.
Blushing Agave Body Oil (4 oz; retail $27), a silky, luscious mixture scented with notes of coconut milk and red berries, and contains certified-organic oils of sunflower seed, safflower seed, and sweet almond, along with agave tequilana leaf extract and vitamin E, which are applied post-bath and help prevent transepidermal water loss while giving skin a plumped appearance.
Sunflower Honey-Butter (3 oz; retail $30), a whipped, golden, deeply hydrating butter cream with velvet-like texture offering intense hydration for extremely dry skin, containing certified-organic oils of coconut, sweet almond and sunflower seed, certified-organic honey and scented with notes of mandarin orange, fig, red berries and vetiver.
The Organics collection also includes the Lemongrass Ocean Mineral Bath Soak (16 oz; retail $23)--that I have to order right now-- an invigorating aromatherapy blend of tea tree, bergamot, lime, and rosewood, containing a mixture of Pink Himalayan and Atlantic Ceara mineral salts, Epsom salts, USDA-certified organic green tea, essential oils, herbs and mixed flower blends of organic lemon myrtle, rosehips, and hibiscus. There is a patent-pending tea bag with reusable clip and cork, which is sold separately (10 tea bags plus tea clip with cork, retail $16). Explains McLinden, "Fill up the tea bag with the mineral bath blend, clip it shut and toss it in the bath water. The cork allows the tea bag to float and infuse the bath water with the mineral bath blend. The herbs and flowers stay inside the tea bag for easy clean up. After bathing, simply unclip and toss the used tea bag! Keep the tea clip and additional tea bags for future use."
The company claims that each product is free of GMO's, synthetic herbicides and pesticides, as well as parabens and sulfates. All of the Organics products are vegan, except for the Sunflower Honey-Butter.
