Natural Living

By Irene Fogarty


When it comes to charitable causes, in my opinion all-natural companies beat the bigger cosmetic companies hands down. While they may not have the big budgets to sponsor huge events, they are in general more conscious about how they make their products, how they effect the environment and how they communicate with their customers. So in addition to the charitable causes they support and encourage their consumers to know about, they are continually committed to creating products for a better, safer and healthier world.

Collective Wellbeing – A beautiful world begins with you
I love that tagline as much as I love these products. Every morning, I scramble into the shower and I see this and smile to myself. Even more appealing is the fact that Collective Wellbeing ingredients, and the recipes used to make them, are so effective.

A few favorites
Try the Active Charcoal/Zinc body wash. It’s not only cool, slathering a luscious black viscous liquid on you first thing in the morning, it’s also good for your skin. Zinc aids healing, reduces inflammation and promotes collagen growth while the charcoal soaks up all the impurities on your skin. So you come out of the shower feeling a little purer than when you entered. (Kinda like confession? when I believed in it!). Also try the CW’s Weightless Day Cream (Chamomile/Aloe Vera) and their Night Quenching Cream with Astaxanthin and Jojoba.

Collective Wellbeing also believes that we can all make a change. With their CollectiveCare project, you can donate to various charities every time you purchase their products. The beauty about this is it’s so easy – it’s online. Just go to and click on CollectiveCare. You’ll feel a lot better when you do!
