Primavera Organic Cosmetics

When it comes to nontoxic skin care, Primavera is the cream of the crop.  High-quality, super-effective, pleasant-to-use products.  You can practically feel the purity when you use them.

Well, Primavera does not stop with making fabulous organic skin care.  No, this company is also fair trade and carbon-neutral. 

For the past 25 years the German Primavera Life has been dedicated to creating pure, plant-based skin care and partnering with independent fair trade growers around the world.  And last year they opened their new innovative, carbon-neutral headquarters.

Primavera Life is “Germany’s first administrative and production facility of its size to systematically use sustainable building practices, while also considering feng shui and energy flows to foster productivity.  When all sustainability initiatives are in full swing, the entire facility is set-up to be carbon neutral.”

Cool, huh?

The entire Primavera range is certified as natural and organic by NaTrue, a stringent certifying body of organic and natural cosmetics.  Primavera products use the highest percentage of certified organic ingredients available, are never tested on animals, and packed in enviro-friendly packaging.

Primavera skin care consists of three product lines; Moisturizing, Revitalizing and Balancing.  I sampled the Sage Grape Seed Gel Cleanser from the Balancing line, and Neroli Cassis Protective Lotion from the Moisturizing line.  The Gel Cleanser is very light and not at all irritating, even on my sensitive skin.  The Protective Lotion is lightly hydrating and leaves skin soft and smooth as a baby’s bottom.

The range also includes Body Care (body wash, body lotion and body oils), Wellness mists made with essential oils, and Air Sprays and essential oil blends for Home.
