This Thursday, a pop-up shop featuring many of New York’s favorite indie natural beauty brands will open its doors on Bleecker Street.

The Organic Beauty Bar is the brick-and-mortar version of Sephora Goes Natural that we’ve been waiting for. Goodbye caustic fragrance fumes, hello organic product selection.

The shop is a project of Buddha Nose founder (and natural beauty formulator) Amy Galper, and Finds Sample Sale founder Ike Rodriguez. (Rodriguez, you may recall, is also the Reiki-practitioner captain of The Spirit Seeker wellness boat.)

“The Organic Beauty Bar concept grew out of the desire to share a ‘hands-on’ organic beauty and wellness experience,” said Galper in a press release.

It’ll feature products from Buddha Nose, Priti NYC, Revolution Organics, Soapwalla, One Love Organics, Tsi-La Perfumes, and Vapour Organic Beauty (many of which are featured in our Healthy Holiday Gift Guide!). Plus, discounted designer fashion.

On Thursday nights, the store will host parties with perks like manicures and facials, healthy snacks, and presentations from wellness pros. The first one, celebrating the launch of the pop-up, is this Thursday at 5:30 p.m.

Being the natural beauty junkies we are, we’re thrilled to have all of these amazing beauty brands so readily accessible, especially around the holidays. If only the store could become a permanent fixture.

The Organic Beauty Bar, 350 Bleecker St., at W. 10th St. Open daily noon–7:00p.m. in December only
