Oregon is probably best known for its breweries and Crater Lake. However, Oregon is also home to some amazing skincare companies and I wanted to share a few that I have come to know and love. #oregonmade
First and perhaps the most well known is Pacifica Beauty. Pacifica Beauty is based out of Portland been around since 1997. It’s a great company that prides itself on being all-natural, 100% vegan and cruelty-free. They offer a wide variety of innovative skincare and beauty products, some of which are hemp or crystal infused and they even have some amazing perfumes! Their packaging is to die for and I also love that all of their products are offered at an affordable price point.
No matter what skin type you have Pacifica has something for everyone. A few of my personal favorites are the Rose Kombucha Flower Powered Face Wash, Coconut Essence Hydro Mist, Pineapple Quench Oil-Free Water Serum, Rose Jelly Beauty Sleep Undereye Gel and the Future Youth Crystal Ball Serum.
You can shop for Pacifica products online at pacificabeauty.com and you can also find them at Target, Ulta and Whole Foods!
Another Oregon based company that I love and that I’ve had the pleasure to watch grow over the last couple of years is Essance Skincare. Essance Skincare is developed in the heart of Portland and features specialty handcrafted herbal skincare products. They source most of their ingredients locally and organically right here in Oregon! They have a ton of products to choose from and they even have a men’s skincare line as well!
I have many Essance favorites but I especially love their Dragon’s Blood Line, the Revitalizing Facial Cleanser, Organic Beet Clay Masque and their Happy Blend Organic Body Butter. I have also been testing out their soon to be released new CBD Oil Line called Canna Boost Define and it’s amazing!
A more recent #oregonmade skincare line that I stumbled upon is Landia Skincare. Landia Skincare is a family-owned skincare line that started in 2012. Their products are created in small batches and they use organic botanical ingredients. Their products are also vegan, soy & gluten-free as well as cruelty and toxin-free!
While testing out Landia Skincare products I found myself continually reaching for their Jojoba Exfoliating Cleanser, Rosewater Toner and their Antioxidant Serum. All of which are stellar products and quickly became favorites in my everyday skincare routines. I also love their Sweet Orange & Ylang Ylang Shea Creme which is a nice, thick body butter that not only smells amazing but is also fast-absorbing and non-greasy so there’s no annoying “drying” time!
Landia Skincare is definitely worth checking out. You can purchase their products directly from their website at landiaskincare.com or over on madehereonline.com and they can also be found in some specialty stores.
Last but certainly not least is Organation. Based in Oregon, Organation is a unique skincare company that offers customized and personalized skincare. They create “one and done” creams specifically formulated to your skin type and your skincare needs. Having a face cream that is tailored to your specific needs helps eliminate the need for multiple products and/or products containing ingredients that aren’t beneficial for your specific skin type. Genious!
By taking a simple and intuitive skin quiz via their website you are able to tell Organation everything they need to know about your skin condition and type. Then, they use ingredients sourced from the purest, organic and bioavailable forms grown in the rich soil of the Pacific Northwest to create your customized cream. Plus, you even get to choose a name for your customized cream! My personalized cream is “GlamRiver’s Magic Cream” and it’s unequivocally magic and perfectly formulated for just my skin!
Head over to Organation.com, take the skin quiz, and create your own custom cream!
