Sustainable Shanti is an artisanal organic skin care product line that not only is safe for your body, but also for the planet.

Started by Emily Trower-Young, these products are 100 percent handmade from organic ingredients and do not include chemicals, preservatives or pesticides. Furthermore, products are never tested on animals.

Trower-Young is determined to distribute the best and safest skin care items. Here’s why she thinks her products are so great, “Every product is made by hand from truly 100 percent organic ingredients, with the ultimate goal of not only healing your skin, but also transforming it over time.”

According to the organic skin care expert, because of the nourishing oils and the smoothing, age-defying combattants, “Women often tell [her] that they need to use less makeup, because their skin looks increasingly radiant and healthy.”

Sustainable Shanti isn’t just another beauty company, but is “set apart from most.” Trower-Young says, “I see the company as a platform for change, both environmentally and socially. There is a component of environmental activism, helping educate people about the choices they make, their impact and their options in changing those choices.”
