Called Care, the product range ‘consists of moisturizers, a cleanser, toner and three elixirs, made entirely of organic produce, the main ingredients are extracts of grape seed oil, linseed oil, rose oil, mallow, green tea, and soybean oil.’

The line is deemed ‘unisex’ to appeal to both males and females interested in bucking artificially created cosmetics. It’s a first for the fashion industry that a luxury fashion label has branched out and created an organic skin care product. From the article,

“This bold move by McCartney mirrors the designer’s well-publicised ethos on environmental issues. The beauty line, due to be launched in Spring 2007, boasts that all formulas exclude synthetic preservatives, silicone and any ingredients that are of animal origin or have been tested on animals.”

Smart move, Stella. Organic cosmetics are heating up in sales and alternatives to standard ‘what’s in this stuff?’ skin care products are appealing. For more information on Stella and the charities she supports, visit her official site.
