It’s common to see shoppers in the grocery store aisle, eyes intent a product’s nutritional information, educating themselves and making decisions on what to put in their body. But have you ever inspected the ingredients of your beauty and personal care products? Octyl Stearate? Sodium Lauryl Sulfate? Triclosan? Ugh. Recently learning more about some of the misinformation, dangers and mislabeling that runs rampant throughout the cosmetic industry thanks to organizations like the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, I was delighted to discover Rhode Island-made Bryce Organic Skin Care for sale at Green Envy in Brick Market Place and used at the The Spa at the Newport Marriott.
BRYCE products are 100% natural, made from organic whole fruit and vegetable pureés, and are devoid of chemicals and artificial ingredients. The exfoliating scrubs, vitamin-rich and antioxidant masques, facial peels, soaps and body mists are all paraben-free– something to applaud, considering 99% of all beauty, cosmetic and personal care products contain a form of parabens. Creator Adrian Bryce Dior, who bases the line out of Providence, is committed to using premium ingredients and will be introducing new products in the near future.
I’m still loving the invigorating scents of the Mediterranean Pomegranate, California Meyer Lemon, Rhode Island Pumpkin Enzyme and Hawaiian Coconut exfoliating facial scrubs I found at Green Envy, but am looking forward to exploring other other products, including New Zealand Kiwifruit Exfoliating Polishing Scrub & Vitamin C Masque and the New York Finger Lakes Grape Restoring Facial Peel (if you’ve never tried grape-based skin care, you’re missing out; the clean scent and refreshing results are heavenly).
