1. Briogeo Hair Care
This natural hair care line promises organic and environmentally-sound products meant to cater to a diverse range of hair types. The CEO and founder, Nancy Twine, incorporates her grandmother’s tried-and-tested hair formulas into products that offer what her website describes as “high-performance, hair care collection that is naturally based, yet performance-driven to provide visible results”.
Briogeo hair products are referred to as 6-free, that is no sulfates, no silicones, no phthalates, no parabens, no DEA and no artificial dyes. All products are 90 to 100 percent naturally derived, cruelty-free, gluten-free and mostly vegan. The company offers something for everyone, from damage repair to volume solutions and curl care.
If you order from Briogeo Hair today, you can get 10% off, along with savings of up to $40 on their Healthy Hair Kits.
2. Mented Cosmetics
Mented Cosmetics was launched to provide an ultimate solution to women looking for the perfect nude lip color. Founded by Amanda Johnson and KJ Miller, the company soon grew to include a wide variety of makeup products including eyeshadow palettes and blushes, to cater to the needs of every woman regardless of skin tone.
The company’s founders are dedicated to the idea that women everywhere should feel included in the world of beauty. As they say on their website, “We know you'll love being put first - because when it comes to beauty, no one deserves to be an afterthought.” You can start by using Mented’s very useful shade finder for foundation and lipstick to find your shade, and it’s all good shopping from there.
The company promises ethical and healthy products. All Mented products are vegan, paraben-free, non-toxic and cruelty free. They offer free shipping on orders above $40.
3. Asha Patel Designs
This jewelry company is inspired by symmetry and balance. Like the dichotomy of East and West or Yin and Yang, Asha Patel blends contrasting materials in a modern and artistic way. Her jewelry reflects, as she describes it, the perfect blend of parts combined to equal the whole.
Asha was born in London to Indian parents. Her love of traditional Indian jewelry has helped in shaping her philosophy of ‘less is more’ into the simple yet modernistic aesthetic that she’s known for today.
Products by the company are symbolic and combine ancient wisdom with modern designs. Designs by Asha are best described in her own words on the website:
“…edgy leather wrap bracelets mixed with statement gems like labradorites and moonstones, sleek sterling necklaces with modernly cut numbers dangling to reflect mystical numerology, and ID tags with mindful Sanskrit sayings.”
MiliMili is a cribwear and nursery line grounded in the belief that it should be easier to match your baby’s nursery to their personality, no matter how bold and vibrant it is. The business, created by Kelsey Searless and Rose Bridges, is focused on providing safe and thoughtful nursery products which can promise sustainability along with safety.
The business started with Rose’s search for a birthday gift for a one-year-old that could match the bright style of the baby and her mama. When she had to resort to sewing a blanket by herself, she realized the need for blankets that were safe, breathable and not chemically treated.
MiliMili promises the softest and safest fabrics for your baby, and has dedicated itself to constantly push the envelope when it comes to wasting as few materials as possible and giving back to the community. You get free shipping on orders of $75 and above.
5. Magnetic Midnight
Magnetic Midnight is an evening accessories brand started by Columbian designer Lucia Echavarria. Lucia’s love of costume, intricate designs and cultural handicrafts has inspired the aesthetic designs found in the Magnetic Midnight products.
The brand’s website details very eloquently where the name of the business comes from. As the website says:
“The magnetic midnight hour differs from conventional midnight. It is the time of day when the magnetic poles align between the sun and an observer standing on the earth’s surface. It is the optimum time for viewing auroras. Magnetic Midnight creations, similarly, differ from conventional accessories, shining best and attracting all observers, like the auroras, during the late magnetic midnight hours.”
Many of Lucia’s designs are statement pieces combining traditional craftsmanship with a sleek, modern aesthetic.
