We all have a friend or family member (or maybe even you) who is crazy about makeup and beauty, but is also concerned about the environment. Chances are, she wants products that are naturally-derived or plant based, and will help her live the healthiest, greenest life. So, to show her you care about her and her concerns, take a look at some of these fabulous natural and organic gift ideas.
Zoya Nail Polish will keep her moving toward being more natural, without giving up her glamorous side! Any color that you feel would suit her, Zoya has and then some. Regardless of the color choice, these polishes contain none of the harsh chemicals found in traditional nail polish. They go on beautifully, and dry fast— who can resist that?

Farmaesthetics Rainwater Soaps are beautiful, gentle and lightly fragranced soaps made from melted snow (frozen rain) collected from Winter to early Spring then carefully filtered and mixed with 100% pure, natural ingredients. Each variety is prepared by hand, in seasonal batches, with a combination of olive oil, palm oil and coconut oils. Seasonal herbs such as comfrey root, rose petals and dried calendula flowers are added to create unique textures, colors and benefits. Our favorite is Aloe and Lemongrass. from $8.20, amazon.com
Caudalie Spa in A Box includes goodies like a body scrub, hand and nail cream, and shower gel that are all created to nurture dull, tired skin.

Ojon “Try Me” Kit contains everything she will need to restore her dry damaged hair, naturally.
