Avalon Organics:
This is one of my best finds this summer. It’s AO’s Lavendar Renewal & Vitality Daily Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin. For less than $18.00, you can get a light, fast absorbing yet enriching moisturizer that you can literally apply anywhere.

It is made with organic lavender, licorice root, white tea, grape seed polyphenols and other calming non-irritating ingredients for reactive complexions. It’s perfect for sensitive skin. Take a look at the other ingredients: organic turmeric, arnica and calendula to soothe redness plus superb antioxidant protection from grape seed polyphenols, organic White Tea and Vitamins C & E. It really helps balance tone for a more radiant complexion.

Breast Cancer Fund
Avalon Organics is a proud supporter and advocate for the Breast Cancer Fund (BCF) in their goal of eliminating the 50% of breast cancer cases that are not genetic — i.e. those that can be traced to environmental factors.

The BCF is a founding organizational member of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, which ‘calls on all cosmetics and personal care companies to protect our health by phasing out the use of chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects and other health concerns in every market they serve.’ These ingredients, which are banned in Europe, have been eliminated from the entire line of Avalon Organics Bath & Body care products.

AO is also a proud sponsor of the Lunafest (October 2004 to April 2005). Lunafest is a national festival of films by, for or about women. In addition to Lunafest, AO also supports one of the most important causes for women today by donating proceeds from the festival to the Breast Cancer Fund.
