Earth Tu Face lotions, serums and scrubs are good enough to eat—literally. Created by two Bay Area herbalists, Sarah Buscho and Marina Storm, the philosophy behind the all-natural beauty line is ‘never put on your skin what you wouldn’t put in your mouth.’ Buscho and Storm stand firmly behind that statement, developing the products with plants they grew in their garden in San Rafael, California. All of the ingredients are FDA-approved ‘food grade organic,’ so they are completely safe to slather all over your skin (and technically safe to consume, too.) Even the chic packaging is 100% compostable.

After studying holistic health and whipping up their own salves for years, the botanical-obsessed pair knows what really works. “We use herbs to heal in every aspect of our lives, whether it’s skincare, cooking, aromatherapy or straight medicine,” says Busco.
