The Boho Barn
a blog by Sonoran Rose
We all have a beauty routine we follow. Whether it's as simple as daily moisturizer and mascara, or as complicated as primer/shadow/foundation/blush/lipstick, we follow it each and every day. But while we all have products we swear by, how many of us really take the time to consider what we're putting on our bodies? If you haven't looked at your product labels in a while, now may be the time to check them out.
Groups like the Environmental Working Group offer lots of info on our cosmetics. Like how only 10 ingredients used in the cosmetic industry are banned in the US, while over 1,400 are banned in the EU! That leaves it up to you to carefully consider what you're putting on your precious body. And don't forget that products that go on us eventually end up in us! All of those products get absorbed by the skin, so knowing what goes in you is more important than we initially thought.
Luckily for Sonoran Rose shoppers, there are many chemical-free products to choose from at the barn. Not only are they super stylish, like our B'Livvin Nail Polish, but they are also free of any harmful ingredients. Each B'Livvin polish makes a great gift. The wide array of colors is fun and the box you select makes it a personal gift for yourself or your friend!
If you're looking for some skin love, you won't want to miss Maven Made. Crafted locally in Richmond, Virginia these products will make you feel and look amazing. Ingredients like jojoba and primrose infuse their Facial Serum to naturally brighten your skin. The Sandalwood Sugar Scrub is the perfect product for some hand TLC, using ground sandalwood to naturally exfoliate and grapeseed and neroli for a natural scent. While many products hide their toxic scents under the label "parfum," Maven Made uses natural essential oils for a delicate fragrance. Customer favorites include the Yoga Mat spray and the Room and Linen Spray.
Customers at Sonoran Rose love to fill their bathrooms with the smell of our wonderful soaps! Finchberry has been a favorite amongst our clients, and it is easy to see why. These chemical-free, vegan, gluten-free soap bars look gorgeous with their handcrafted appearance. Each scent is unique and has a witty name, like the apple scented "Apple-y Ever After." These soaps make a sweet gift and can be packaged in a set of up to four.
Looking for something a bit more traditional? Sonoran Rose is proud to be the first US stockist of the Dartmoor Soap Co.'s beautiful soaps. Made of natural ingredients in Devon, England, these soaps boast subtle scents and unique packaging. Each soap bar is wrapped in a different paper, often themed for its scent. You can feel good about using these soaps, which are free of common chemicals such as SLS, SLR, and carcinogenic parabens. These are also eco-friendly, as they are free of habitat-devastating palm oil and give a portion of proceeds back to Butterfly Conservation.
No matter which of these products you choose to try, we hope you enjoy basking in their glorious, chemical-free scents and hand-crafted beauty. All of these products make unique gifts that are sure to be appreciated, inside and out :).
