Sprout – No-frills Organic Skincare, Made in Brooklyn

I am not one of those people who enjoy wandering the aisles of drug stores for hours looking for new beauty products. Honestly, they bore me. I just want great stuff that will work without being harmful to me or the planet, which is why I love Sprout Skincare. This Brooklyn-based company rejects trendy, exotic ingredients that do little more than raise a price-point. Instead, they believe in using the simplest possible blends of whole, high-potency ingredients, creating products that are safe and effective.

Founder Adina Grigore wants her products to be as healthy for her customers as they are for the planet and sources ingredients from Organic, local and fairtrade sources whenever possible. She believes that beauty and true health are synonymous and does not use dangerous synthetics of any kind.

What first caught my eye was the beautiful packaging (can’t help it, I’m a designer), created by SM&KK Studios, also based in Brooklyn. All products except the lip balms are packaged in glass bottles, which is not only easier than plastic to recycle, but also assures no unwanted substances will leak into the product.

I also love the simple assortment. The line includes only seven different products — cleanser, toner, cream, exfoliant, makeup remover, scrub and two kinds of lip balm (original and vegan formula) — all you really need for your daily beauty routine. The products are all easy to use and smell very nice without being overwhelming. Generally when it comes to skincare, less is always more. Sprout Skincare proves that point beautifully.

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
