Eventide Botanic Alchemy
Vancouver-based Eventide founder Kathryn Sawers first concocted skincare products for her facial clinic Collective Skin Care. Then she decided to make two versions of her Everything Masks more widely available when her friends and clients praised the formulations. Use Tea Tree & Juniper Berry for oiliness and blemishes and Palmarosa & Carrot Seed for everything else.

Best Health Tip: Just because something is natural, doesn’t automatically mean it’s better. Check toxicity rankings of the ingredients in your cosmetics on EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database.
