Farm to Face: I Travelled 6230 Miles to See Women Harvest This Mask Ingredient

It’s easy to think that only niche brands are doing good things via the world of beauty, but big brands have a conscience too. Last month I travelled to Vietnam to meet the women who harvest the ginger leaf, a key ingredient the new Kiehl’s Ginger Leaf & Hibiscus Firming Mask. And while shipping ingredients from the Vietnamese countryside is definitely not carbon-neutral, the farm is supporting local women and putting money back into the community while being both sustainable and organic. This raises an important question when it comes to beauty products: What’s important to you? Because with every purchase, you’re essentially voting with your hard-earned money. This article I wrote recently should help you discover what’s important to you.
