Yes To vegetarian beauty products was founded with the idea that they wanted an effective line of natural skin and hair care products, as well as a company that is focused on positivity and offers reasonably priced products. Consisting of four main brand names, Nourishing (carrot), Soothing (cucumber), Clear Skin (tomato) and Age Refresh (Blueberry), Yes To has twice been awarded PETA’s “Best Beauty Brand.” They maintain that they never test on animals, and they use organic ingredients and use all recyclable packaging.
Many have seen Yes To vegetarian beauty products in big brand stores, such as Target, and perhaps were wary of buying the product because it can be hard to imagine that big box stores carry ethical and natural beauty products, but Yes To has really lived up to its mission. Divided into four separate brands, they have made it as easy as possible to identify which product line is best for you.
Yes To Carrots, also called the “Nourishing” line, is for normal-to-dry skin and hair. Combining carrots, shea butter and sweet almond oil, it works to nourish both skin and hair, depending on which product you purchase. Skin products include Rich Moisture Day Cream, Moisturizing Eye Cream, Softening Facial Mask and Repairing Night Cream. Hair care products include Nourishing Shampoo, Leave-in Conditioner, and the Daily Pampering Shampoo/Conditioner combo.
For those with sensitive skin and/or color-treated hair, Yes To offers their cucumber line, known as the “Soothing” line, which blends a soothing mix of organic cucumbers, aloe vera and green tea. Their most popular product from this line, and the 2011 winner of Allure magazine’s “Best of Beauty” award, is their Facial Towelettes. These all-natural, biodegradable towelettes offer a quick way to wash your face, gently removing dirt, oil and sweat, while exfoliating and detoxifying your skin. They are a great option for travel, and come in a convenient mini-size, or a 10-pack on-the-go size to slip into your purse or travel bag. The cucumber line also carries a gentle shampoo and conditioner combo for those with color-treated hair, who need a gentler daily hair cleanser.
Yes To offers a tomato vegetarian beauty product line, called their “Clear Skin,” for combination and acne-prone skin. Combining tomatoes, salicylic acid and witch hazel, it offers a natural way of clarifying skin, while still not irritating it. Products include Acne Control Gel Cleanser, Acne Roller Ball Spot Stick, Blemish Clearing Facial Towelettes, Acne Daily Pore Scrub and Deep Cleansing Facial Pads. The tomato hair care line is for those with limp, oily or greasy hair and adds extra volume to hair. It also deep cleans the scalp to avoid excess oil.
Finally, their blueberry line, called “Age Refresh,” is for age-damaged and mature skin. Using a blend of blueberries, cotton thistle and paracress flower, and helps to improve firmness and diminish fine lines. Products include Line Reducing Lip Treatment, Brightening Eye Roller, Cleansing Towelettes, Daily Repairing Moisturizing with SPF 30 and Overnight Hydrating Cream.
