SINGULAR SENSATION

Mother Earth will endorse the Vapour Organic Beauty line because its packaging is recyclable, and the energy needed for production is provided by sustainable wind power. What you’ll love is the transparency—each of the 28 chemical-free products has its own Web page listing ingredients, all of which are either certified organic, wild harvested or EcoCert approved. Then there's the gorgeous pedigree: Eric Sakas, cofounder of Kevyn Aucoin Beauty, teamed with botanical experts in New Mexico to create the brand. $16–$44. vapourbeauty.com.
