Natural Cosmetics for Teens

October 7, 2008

Teens Turning Green—a new collection of eco body care products available exclusively at Whole Foods Market—is a collaboration between green companies and non-profit organization Teens for Safe Cosmetics. Teens Turning Green, which features products from seven companies (Benedetta, Depth, EO Products, and Pomega5, Alaffia in Astara and Terra Naturals) consists of nine products chosen by teens involved with the safe cosmetics.

“We asked each company to create distinctive products that would stand out,” said Carly Wertheim of Teens for Safe Cosmetics. “Our products are formulated with the safest ingredients and incorporate sustainable packaging with mindful business practices. These products are memorable with great scents and textures, but above all they really work.”

Added Erin Schrode, lead campaign spokeswoman, “Our goal is to affect change in a positive and collaborative way through partnerships with companies that are already doing right by our bodies and planet.”

A portion of sales from all Teens Turning Green products will be donated to Teens for Safe Cosmetics.
