Andalou is your go-to company for just about everything — shampoos, conditioners, facial masks and moisturizers, deodorants, and much more. It was founded by the same people who created Beauty Without Cruelty in 1989,(the US’s first certified cruelty-free product line), Avalon Organics (the US’s first certified organic personal care line) in 1999, and a host of other companies. Andalou Naturals is the nation’s first Non-GMO product verified beauty brand. Its founders, Kelly and Mark Egide, have always been ahead of their time, and their commitment to quality intensifies with each new venture. This passion is reflected in their gorgeous, colorful website, www.andalou.com.
Our current favorite hair product is Andalou’s Sunflower and Citrus Brilliant Shine Conditioner ($9.95). This offering is vegan, gluten-free, and manufactured with 99% nature derived ingredients. We have a bottle in our shower right now, and couldn’t be more delighted with the product’s effectiveness. Packed with sunflower oil, the formula adds bounce and shine to your hair. It’s great for taming frizz and split ends, and is safe for color-treated hair. The scent is sweet yet delicate, and the texture is light, yet creamy. You’ll love how your locks feel after you use this conditioner!
If you want a brighter complexion (and who doesn’t?) you can’t go wrong with the Probiotic + C Renewal Cream ($24.95). The magic ingredients are Vitamin C and solar vitus grape stem cells. This concoction boasts certified organic, fair trade ingredients. It is vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free, as well. It’s a high-quality offering you can use with confidence, knowing that your purchase didn’t harm animals in any way. The cream smells luscious and feels cool and smooth on your skin.
Sometimes, you just want to slather your body in rose hips, argan oil, and shea butter. Who can blame you? Andalou’s 1000 Roses Velvet Soft Body Butter ($13.95) does the job beautifully. Aloe juice and sunflower seed oil help to bind the ingredients together to create a thick, soothing balm that will send you straight to heaven. And, believe it or not, this product is also vegan and gluten-free, made with 99% nature derived ingredients. You can’t possibly go wrong here.
Note: Andalou features hemp oil in many of their offerings. This substance is non-psychoactive and THC free. It does, however, contain vital, natural antioxidants that promote healthy skin and hair. Also note that most of Andalou’s products are vegan, but not all (but they are all vegetarian). Each product page features a helpful list of ingredients, so be sure to check before you buy. The company offers free shipping with each $50 purchase. We feel confident that you’ll have no trouble convincing yourself to spend at least $50! Why not treat yourself to some quality beauty care?
