Local Producer: Skin Organics

By Paige Brady, June 17, 2010  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Paige Brady

Skin Organics’ founder, Ann Webb developed a passion for skin care at an early age when she struggled with severe cystic acne. She used her extensive knowledge of aesthetics, dermatology and skin rejuvenation to launch and grow an affordable, simple-to-use product line that contained the best pharmaceutical-grade ingredients available. When Whole Foods Market announced our Premium Body Care program for products meeting the strictest standards for quality sourcing, environmental impact, results and safety, Ann reformulated her products in order to meet this standard. Additionally, she partnered with us to create Skin Organics Premium, an exclusive, Premium Standard line that is even more affordable than the original and maintains the same sought after effectiveness. Thanks to a loan through Whole Foods Market’s Local Producer Loan Program, Skin Organics is now available in eight of our twelve regions, with more to come! Learn more in this short video.

I'm very satisfied with Skin Organics. The skin on my face is extremely sensitive and these are the first products that are gentle on my skin (no break-outs, no itching, no redness, no crawling). They are also gluten-free and I think that's a key factor in my treatment. The only CON I have is the pump bottle; they don't work well and I have returned a couple of products. One more thing, is "Raspberry Cocoa" nourishing cream not being produced anymore? Why? I noticed a "Cherry Cocoa"; is it a similar preoduct? Thank you.

I hope that Whole Foods will keep carrying Skin Organics! This is the first product line that I have been able to use without any irritation. My skin is extremely sensitive, dry, eczema prone, and menopausal. In the past, most products that I used would produce whelps, hives, etc. from their harmful ingredients. Then I would have to use the cortisone creams and petroleum products to get my skin somewhat back to normal. As a young adult, I also had acne like Ann Webb and took allergy shots for many years. Maybe this will help others in deciding whether to try her products. PLEASE DON'T discontinue them!

Love your product! However, have not been able to find back here on the east coast, ie: Columbus, OH. Originally, I became familiar with your product after visiting a Denver Whole Foods.

The coconut water, sensitive skin cleanser is the best face wash that I have ever used in my life! I have gone through hundreds of cleansers and this one is by far, the best for my sensitive skin! Sadly, I went to 4 different Whole Foods today (including the Schaumburg location where I purchased this product) and I was told that it has been discontinued!!!!!!! WHAT?! No!!!! PLEASE!!!! What can I do? Write a letter? Post a comment? Bake someone brownies?! Seriously.... I make a mighty fine brownie.........

@SARI - How did you know I love brownies? :) Since we do not make this product, I would suggest getting in touch with them directly at http://skinorganics.com/contact.html. Crossing our fingers for you!
