Being one of the purest beauty lines on the market, we knew we had to have RMS in our shop. It's important to us to have cosmetic lines that look beautiful, are simple in application and are non-toxic. RMS  takes all of this criteria to another level with 100% transparency and commitment to bringing safe, beautiful products to women of all ages and skin types. RMS Beauty was founded by renowned makeup artist, Rose-Marie Swift. Read more about Rose-Marie's journey to non-toxic beauty below (excerpt from www.rmsbeauty.com):

Several years ago, Rose-Marie began to experience some health issues that were causing many problems physically, mentally and emotionally. After an extensive series of tests, she learned that her blood contained toxic levels of heavy metals including aluminum, barium, cadmium, lead and mercury as well as high levels of pesticides and other chemicals.
               Rose-Marie was surprised when the technician asked if she worked in the cosmetics industry. Until then she had no idea that cosmetics could contribute to serious health issues. After years of rebuilding her own health, Rose-Marie realized that she wanted to help other women claim their right to healthy beauty. To achieve this goal she created RMS Beauty, her acclaimed line of organic color cosmetics.
               Rose-Marie is an outspoken advocate for women protecting themselves from the toxic chemicals found in products they use on their bodies daily. She created the website www.beautytruth.com to dispel beauty myths and expose some of the dangers of personal care products.

“Somebody once said to me, that because it's organic it's good for you, and it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t work as well as the mainstream stuff - I intend to change their mind.”
-Sasha Plavsic, founder of ILIA.

ILIA has become one of our favorite lip care lines because of the versatility of their collections. From ultra-pigmented options to sheer conditioning formulas,  they are filled with certified organic bio-active botanicals which nourish and rejuvenate the skin. Once we tried ILIA's products, we were hooked. Organic shouldn't have to mean you sacrifice beauty or performance and ILIA gets that 100%.  "Our skin is our largest organ, and can absorb just about anything we put to its surface. ILIA is formulated with this in mind, and dedicated to creating the purest products possible."  -ILIA
