Canadian eco-friendly beauty company Live Clean, which you may know from its hair care and body products, has recently launched a range of face care called Fresh Face ($15 to $23) based on plant ingredients and pure essential oils
Fresh Face is 98 to 99 percent plant derived and features orchard extract, which Live Clean explains “seals in moisture and replenishes skin hydration.” Live Clean has combined the orchard extract with Vitamin C into a Botanical Orchard-C Complex. This is in all eight products, some of which are Foaming Daily Cleanser (pictured, and which is sulfate-free), Soothing Daily Moisturizer, Daily Serum and Deep Cleansing Clay Masque. Additionally, the products contain a variety of certified organic botanicals and extracts such as lavender, cucumber, chamomile and aloe. Executive Vice President Michelle Sparrock says Fresh Face, which is hypoallergenic, vegan and dermatologist tested, is "effective for even the the most sensitive skin." Bottles/tubes are recyclable virgin plastic and the outer paper cartons are 80 percent post-consumer recycled material with the paper source being manufactured with 100% solar and wind power.
Personally, I’ve got my eye on Fresh Face’s cooling roller-ball applicator de-puffing Eye Treatment to keep at my desk as a pick-me-up. I’ve read it’s going to be a scorching summer.
