Have you ever heard of vegan based skincare products? Yes it’s true! Vegan does not only apply to what you eat, but also to what you put on your skin.
These are products based solely on what the earth gives us in its purest form. It’s safe and effective for our bodies! One such business we can trust to produce Vegan skincare is Urthmos.
Urthmos is a vegan skincare brand that includes various century old remedies involving herbs and plants for sensitive and mature skin. Here is the Founder & Formulator Erika McGillivray to tell us more in our Q&A:
- What is the significance of vegan based skincare products?
For Urthmos, the significance of staying true to what mother nature has been giving us. Many cultures have shown us for centuries that plants have all we need to thrive internally and externally.
- What are the differences within the experience of vegan skin care products and large named brand skincare products?
As for Urthmos, being a vegan skin care, all our products have an ingredients base of Traditional Chinese Medicine root plants, Ayurvedic herbs, and Amazonian plants. All of our ingredients are of the highest quality and fair-trade from around the world and are harvested in a way to protect the Earth, the plants, and the communities they come from. I’m not sure many if any large named skincare product lines can say the same.
- What caused the onset of Urthmos for you? Can you recall the season?
Urthmos was created from a need. I noticed as I was, what I’d like to call “Aging Gracefully”, my skincare needs were changing, and I knew I wasn’t the only one. Because I have always had sensitive skin, I needed to accommodate that as well. My other motivation was my kids and grandkids. My grandkids were experiencing eczema and I was determined to find a plant based solution. I’m grateful I did.
- What has your experience been with Chinese herbs before starting this business?
I have been formulating vegan organic skincare for about 15 years. I began researching and studying the power of Chinese herbs, Ayurvedic herbs and other unique plants about 4 years before starting Urthmos. I was fascinated with the fact that all the remedies from thousands of years ago are still very effective today. From Chinese herbs, to Ayurvedic herbs, to Amazonian plants, and worldwide. There are tribes and villages in cultures around the world to this day, who are still practicing and using the gifts from mother nature, our earth, to care for and heal their people…which still works.
- What can customers expect concerning the shelf life of Urthmos products?
You will not have to refrigerate our products. Urthmos products have a wonderful shelf life of up to 1 1/2 -2 years when stored properly. I have found natural organic plant-based preservatives that not only protect my products from molds, bacterias, and such, but also cater to sensitive skin and offer natural restorative benefits.
- What are must have products from Urthmos for busy moms on the go?
1 – For a quick and effective facial wash, I would suggest the Amor Luxur Facial Cleanser. This is an oil cleanser that can be used to clean and remove makeup from your pores. It’s perfect for all skin types, especially sensitive skin and acne prone skin. You can even add a little Haldi Bambu Facial Scrub for the ultimate facial scrub and cleaning experience. It’s what one of my customers calls her “Holy Grail” of facial cleaning.
2 – If you want a quick and effective facial moisturizer that will offer a lot of hydration without leaving an oily heavy residue, my Tremellahari Facial Cream will be your go to. A little goes a long way and it doesn’t interfere with makeup application.
3 – If you want something to enhance your current facial moisturizer and/or serum, my Hydraplum Vitamin C Serum with 24K Gold is perfect. It redefines hydration for the skin.
4 – If you want something that will refresh and hydrate your face, I would suggest my Exotica Facial Toner. This toner has multiple anti-aging benefits and have been known to enhance makeup application by allowing your makeup to look as good at the end of the day as it did in the beginning.
