Cecilia Wong ~ Holistic Skin Care


NEW YORK—So can we be honest? We love it when we find products like Cecilia Wong. Rooted in a honest, holistic approach to skin care, her line of natural skin care products are as good for the environment as they are for the face. Based on healing traditions of holistic medicine, Wong's products contain no chemicals, parabens, toxic properties, sulfates, synthetic emulsifiers, alcohol, artificial colors, mineral oil or artificial fragrances. In short, the line is au naturale. Ingredients such as black currant seed oil are rich in essential fatty acids to nourish skin while minimizing signs of aging. Cleansers contain natural astringents such as lemon, as well as ingredients like feverfew, which minimized sunburn-induced redness and neutralizes harmful free radicals.

Herbs and botanicals used in the custom-formulated products come from a certified-natural grown farm that disallows synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides fungicides and GMO seeds. The line is not tested on animals.

Products are hand-packed in recyclable bottles. Labels are produced using wind-generated electricity and solar power; they are printed with water-based ink.
