With a name like “Gourmet Body Treats”, using these vegan, cruelty-free products feels like an indulgence! Founded in 1998 by Waleska Agosto, she was looking for a product that she could safely and comfortably use on her rosacea-prone skin. She knew that, in order to accomplish this, she would need a product that would be free of all synthetics and chemicals, and contain nothing but natural ingredients that came straight from the earth. Each product is poured and packaged by hand and tested on humans, not animals.
Gourmet Body Treats are proud of the fact that their beauty products are vegan and specifically mention that they never use animal ingredients such as honey, lanolin or carmine. Further, they state that they never test their products on animals and will not use raw ingredients that have been tested on animals. Their products are by human volunteers who are compensated with free makeup. They also ensure that their ingredients are never genetically modified or contain pesticides or fertilizers.
Gourmet Body Treats has several lines of vegan beauty products, including makeup, skincare, bath and body care and hair care. Their makeup line features everything you could possibly need for face, cheeks, eyes and lips. Their popular raw mineral foundation goes on quickly and smoothly, while defusing imperfections and evening skin tone. Beyond being cosmetically beautiful, it is chock-full of soothing and beneficial ingredients such as extracts of lotus flower, licorice root, argan, sea buckthorn, coconut, bamboo, lemon peel and orange peel. These healing ingredients have had the users of the raw foundation reporting an improvement to skin texture and a reduction in the visibility of their pores.
Their range of vegan shampoos include ingredients that truly do sound like a gourmet treat. Extracts of rosemary, yucca root, chamomile and aspen bark are paired with oils of jojoba seed, olives and sunflower seeds. Additionally, they feature an organic leave-in keratin conditioner that is even safe for color treated hair. Rich in quinoa protein, aloe vera, green tree extract and lavender essential oil, this conditioner is a treat to the hair that is also non-oily.
