Refresh Your Beauty Regimen with These Three Local Skin & Body Care Lines
January is all about refreshing your outlook, which might just involve a new skin care line. Robyn Bradley and her husband, Tyler Moore, built their La Connor business, Pepperjack Home (106 First St., Suite D; 425.330.0204; pepperjackhome.com), on eco-sensitivity. Their body care collection includes soaps made with a local microbrew (good for a nice, foamy lather) and facial masks made with clay and charcoal. Essential oil blends (such as oakmoss and whiskey) lightly scent these smartly packaged products. // Madison Park–based Henriette Holst grew up in Denmark and spent time studying in Asia, where she encountered exotic neroli and jasmine. She combined these with rose to create the signature scent of Kō Denmark (available online at kodenmark.com). The GMO- and additive-free vegan product line uses premium ingredients (rosehip seed oil, organic pomegranate) to perk up tired and dehydrated skin. // With a degree in health psychology from Bastyr University, Fremont’s Julia Wills, along with husband Alexander Kummerow, is the creative force behind Herbivore Botanicals (available at Glasswing, 1525 Melrose Ave.; glasswingshop.com; and online at herbivorebotanicals.com). These handcrafted, vegan products include the bracing cypress bath soak ($28), inspired by the hinoki cypress trees used in traditional Japanese baths. Stock up and feel invigorated for the year ahead.
