Fly the Friendly Skies

New beauty website is purveyor of travel-friendly goods.

Most travelers do not want to sacrifice their beauty and grooming routines regardless of whether they are headed to Peoria or Paris. The decision to limit all beauty products to 3 fl. oz. or less or to check an otherwise carry-on bag is daunting–after all, we all want our favorite salves and sprays along for the ride, but who has the time to run all over town in search of portable versions of the tried and true?

Enter, an online beauty hub that sells all personal care TSA-approved in size for those who crave their beauty on the go.

Founder Alexi Mintz & Kate Duff—two former co-workers at naturals home and personal care marketer Archipelago Botanicals—became friends while working together by connecting over their love of travel. The New Yorkers spent hours upon hours going from shops to websites wondering why it wasn’t easier to get TSA-friendly versions of their favorite products all at once.

According to Mintz and Duff, was born out of their desires to have their favorite beauty products with them wherever they go without sacrificing convenience. Confirmed brands include Ahava, Art of Shaving, Toms of Maine, Pangea Organics and Weleda, to name a few. More to follow in 2010. You may fasten your seatbelts now.
