You know someone is in touch with green-living when they brag about giving birth to their daughter in their own backyard. Such is the case with actress/model Josie Maran (Van Helsing, The Aviator), who had the “natural” experience last year and is now working to add to her green values with a new all-natural, non-toxic line of cosmetics that’s set to launch this September. In addition, Marin revealed to Style.com some easy tips on staying eco-friendly from moisturizing to laundry. Below are some highlights from the interview:
Josie Maran Cosmetics Argan Oil is my favorite moisturizer for skin, hair, and nails. It’s a 100 percent organic wonder. It’s packaged in a recyclable glass bottle and is purchased from women’s cooperatives in Morocco. These cooperatives also work within a UNESCO biosphere reserve, which ensures the protection and reforestation of argan trees.
My daughter loves getting messy. Instead of bleach, I use citrus on stains. Just rubbing and rinsing with a lemon or lime followed by a little drying time in the sun does the trick.
For Easy Style
My boyfriend, Ali Alborzi, has a clothing line called Evidence of Evolution. They make the coolest dresses and shirts for women, plus shirts and hoodies for men. They’re locally designed and sewn in Los Angelesâ€”they even have an organic lineâ€”and will be selling at Barneys this fall.
