As a frequent traveler always on the go, routine in every aspect of your life kind of goes out the window. Our skin and health should be a top priority to maintain routine. Between the long flying times (and radiation) which dries and ages our skin, to the constant change in weather, climate, elevation, humidity, the minimum we can do is to keep a good set of organic travel toiletries on us at all times. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! After attending the Organic Spa Magazine‘s Media event recently at the Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills, I was familiarized with some of the industry’s best beauty products for the Organic Traveller in your life.
This list also includes sustainable fashion and organic products for your carry on. These wellness products are extremely beneficial for every day use at home, and most also come in travel size. Ultimately, it’s up to you to determine which skincare line and ingredients are best for you. The products I list below are all organic but vary in ingredients and specialty, such as CBD, Probiotic focused, sea based, etc.
Ama Sea Beauty
Antoinette Marquez is a holistic health professional who after moving to Santa Barbara, fell in love with the ocean. After witnessing first hand the tremendous benefits the sea had on her diet, skin and life overall, she became a Thalasso Therapist and Sea Farmer. From there, she developed Ama Sea Beauty. Though not as known in the US, Thalassotherapy is actually a 500-year-old French practice of utilizing seawater in skincare. Thalassotherapy dates back to the bathhouse culture popular in ancient Rome and, later, Bath, England.
Thalasso is the root word meaning “Sea” in Greek.
Organic Thalasso Therapy Skincare line was born out of Ama Sea Beauty, now a local company based in Santa Barbara focused on sustainability and saving the oceans. The products are all natural, vegan, cruelty free, sustainable and eco-friendly (recyclable). What I love about their company is that they own their our own sea farm, PharmerSea. Hence, all products are sourced and made within California. This is the only facility of its kind on the North American coast. The Ama Sea Beauty Travel Kit is an ideal set of skincare for the organic traveller.
Columbia SkinCare is a division of The F.C. Sturtevant Company, America’s oldest family owned and operated holistic pharmaceutical company since 1871. Columbia SkinCare is all about offering proprietary products that enhance the health and wellness of the skin. Their focus is on creating products which work in harmony with our body’s natural healing mechanisms through probiotic ingredients. Columbia Skincare develops, sources, produces and distributes their products themselves in the United States.

One of my favorite hand lotions to date, not only do I love the branding, I love the product. MadHippie leads a revolution to “buck the cosmetic establishment” manifesto. Using only natural products, its advanced skincare products are cruelty free, free from parabens, petrochemicals, GMOs, animal products, synthetic dyes, perfume and silicone. $1 of every sale goes to conservation. Beyond organic skincare, MadHippie strives to promote beauty of health, self-confidence, community and inclusiveness.
Frunutta Vitamins: a Smaller Vitamin Company
I love Frunutta Vitamins because the pills are small and dissolves under your tongue very quickly. They call this form a “sublingual pill”. By placing the small pill under your tongue, it instantly absorbs into the blood stream, bypassing the stomach. It eliminates the unnecessary large pill that we have to uncomfortably swallow while eliminating all the additives and impurities found which has to withstand the arduous passage through our digestive system. In typical vitamins, ingredients besides the vitamin itself often includes sugar, preservatives, artificial flavors, carnauba wax among many other unnecessary ingredients. Here are some recommended products for every traveller:
Though Frunutta is in a smaller pill, all the nutrients needed from the vitamins are in there. It keeps all of the beneficial stuff and eliminates the unnecessary with no chemical, coatings or fillers.
