* If you're curious "A Consumer's Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients" explains that Tetrasodium EDTA (Sodium Edetate) is "powdered sodium salts that reacts with metals. It is used as a Sequesting Ingredient - ingredient used as a preservative that  prevents physical or chemical changes affecting color, flavor, texture, or appearance of a product".  

The Aloe Vera Skin Treatment is 100% pure and organic aloe vera for cooling and deep moisturizing the skin. This Treatment is chemical-free and improves skin’s blood circulation resulting in stronger tissues and healthier skin.

I'm always open to trying products from new and independent cosmetic companies so when I was contacted by an associate from Made From Earth I was open to trying them. After using the products for a little less than a month I'm glad that I accepted their offer.  I don't know about you but this past winter really did a number on my skin. Despite increasing my exfoliating and adding a cool mist humidifier to my home my skin still had major dryness and flaking issues. Not a good thing for a Makeup Artist folks!  The Olive Night Creme was just what my skin needed.  It was moisturizing, rich and hydrating.  If my skin was feeling irritated or dry I used in the day as well as at night.  If I did some serious exfoliation then I layered The Aloe Vera Treatment followed with the Olive Night Creme.  My skin would look and feel so soft the next day. 

I'm a bit of a fanatic about lip balms...I have them in almost every room in my house because I'm a lip licker and I hate them feeling dry.   I absolutely LOVE the aroma of Made From Earth's Citrus Fresh Lip smells like orange creamsicle heaven and makes me think of sunshine.  It has a good consistency, not too waxy but moisturizing without a strong taste. I just wish I could stop licking my lips when I wear it so it would last longer. But if you are going to lick your lips you certainly want to be wearing an organic and chemical free product!

I especially appreciate the fact that all their ingredients (plants) are from certified organic farms sourced in the USA.  There are no potentially toxic ingredients in their products and no diluting or watering down of potent organic plant ingredients.  No synthetic coloring agents or fragrances, or paraffin and other petroleum products are permitted either. Sounds like heaven for your skin right? So why not try it for yourself...I think you'll be pleased.
