At Marie Veronique Organics, what it puts in its products is as important as what it doesn’t. You won’t find toxins, petroleum-based products, nanoparticles, or anything else that’s potentially harmful. You don’t need those ingredients to make your skin look and feel younger. Wherever possible Marie Veronique uses natural, organic, and fair-trade ingredients, packaged in 100 percent recyclable materials. And it sources them as close to its Berkeley headquarters as possible to keep its footprint super small. To make the planet a better place, the company donates 10 percent of its profits to the Acumen Fund, which is dedicated to creating better opportunities for women and children in third-world countries.
