Is GMO-free important to you when it comes to skin care products? It wasn’t even something I thought much about until I started this Green Beauty feature, and I guess some of you are like me so I thought I’ll blog about it so that we can learn this together. First of all, GMO stands for Genetic Modified Organisms and it really means plants and animals that have undergone genetic modification where selected individual genes are transferred from one organism into another via genetic engineering or biotechnology.
Here is our final sponsor for the VivaBella Green Beauty Box Giveaway – Marie Veronique Organics and as most of you know, my favorite brand! I’ve been using Marie Veronique Organic Products since 2008 and have no plans to stop using them. While I may test new products from time to time, some of their products are still staples in my daily skin care routine.
How can the VivaBella Green Beauty Box Giveaway be complete without products to beautify your nails? So thanks to Simple Living, here are some lovely water-based nail polish from Scotch Naturals Watercolor. I’ve reviewed this range in September and mentioned how impressed I was with the quality of this non-toxic nail polish that is not only “3 Free”, but also free of ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, nitrocellulose, acetone, and heavy metals.
Here’s another addition to the VivaBella Green Beauty Box Giveaway, and this time from Sweetsation Therapy. The USA based company has sponsored S$400 worth of skin care products – five sets of their Lumi*Essence Brightening treatment & I*Light eye cream – that are made with natural and organic ingredients free of artificial additives. Some of you may also recall my review of their Sun*Si’Belle Organic Triple Action Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 30+ that is highly rated by EWG as amongst the best sunscreens for the past three years.
Botáni, a brand of botanical skin care from Australia, has contributed five sets of their Olive Skin Serum and Soothing Facial Mist worth S$330 to the VivaBella Green Beauty Box Giveaway. I wrote about this range recently and mentioned that their products looks rather promising, especially for those with particularly sensitive or problematic skin as Botáni range of products are toxic-free, formulated with skin friendly and organic active ingredients to address skin issues and imbalances.
