Organic Beauty On The Go

Organic Beauty On The Go

Summer is travel time. But just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean you forget your responsibility to the planet.

When you take off on your next jaunt, take some eco-beauty products with you.

No matter if you travel a lot, as I have recently, or if you are simply planning a summer get-away, you have to take what George Carlin called “stuff.” Even the most environmentally aware of us still has some stuff to take along, but there are ways to lower your impact while still maintaining your look.

I found some wonderful on-the-go products that fit the bill. Juice Beauty Organics To Go line is perfect for travel and still lets you feel good about what you’re using. Juice Beauty is a beauty line based on the use of organic fruit juice rather than water.

Just like choosing healthy, organic food for your body, your skin can also benefit from the use of organic products. In fact, your skin absorbs up to 64% of what you place on it, so organic choices can really make a difference in how your skin responds to stress and environmental pollution.

The On The Go kit ($29 at includes a milk cleanser, hydrating mist, exfoliating green apple peel, an antioxidant serum and a luxurious moisturizer. Plus, you get a soft organic bamboo face cloth, too. Perfect travel size makes packing a breeze.

Juice Beauty puts over 100 USDA certified organic ingredients into a 100% certified organic juice base (made from over 30 different juices) which brings the total organic content up to 98% in every product.

Juice Beauty creators Karen Behnke and Melissa Jochim, continually search the West Coast for pure and effective organic ingredients, including organic juices, aloe vera, honey, botanicals, plant oils, and raw cane sugar from farms that specialize in sustainable and organic farming.

And Juice Beauty products are made without harmful parabens, petroleum, pesticides, artificial dyes, and synthetic fragrances.

If you’re into organics, and hopping on a plane any time soon, you might give these a try. Your face will thank you.
