High-grade Don't panic: get your hands on some quality Origins Organics.

For a brand that's been on the forefront of the natural trend since its birth in 1990, raising the bar to include a whole new, all-organic line was just, well, a natural progression. If that wasn't enough, the range boasts of multiple certifications, including those from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), EcoCert, and Soil Association.

The nine-item-strong Origins Organics range fully complies with strict USDA agricultural standards—95% of its ingredients must use only National Organic Program-approved fertilizers, supplements and pest control methods. It provides a healthier skincare option with the ultimate goal of, natch, reducing our human footprint on Mother Earth and support sustainable living in general.

Taking things from simply “natural” (merely using plant-derived ingredients) to awesomely organic (produced, manufactured and handled in accordance to extremely high farming and agricultural principles) is more than merely jumping the bandwagon for Origins, a label with nature and homeopathy already ingrained in its DNA and which was already anxiously waiting for the trend to jump from grocery aisles to the prestige beauty field. Now the collection—which has some remarkable bath, body, hair and skincare offerings—helps push the whole organic ideology into the mainstream, while remaining refreshingly sophisticated and pared-down enough that even non-hippies could happily partake.

Fans of the brand will go gaga over the delectably straightforward—and yet, amazingly un-crunchy—line, which includes a Nourishing Face Lotion, Silkening Body Spritz, Purifying Tonic, Soothing Lip Balm and five other bath and body reinforcements. The products play a lot with key organic mainstays like olive oil, aloe and cocoa butter (with a couple slightly more exotic anti-irritants and essential oils added for good measure); it's quite hard not to get behind something that's as beneficial skin- and soil-deep. One thing, though: the products' scents all come from their leafy-extract mixes, so expect a slightly green, spicy fragrance dry-down. A minor drawback for something that's both physically and geographically good for you, and since skin absorbs 60% of what's slathered on it, may as well ensure it gets fed well. Turns out Mom was right about veggies all along; now there's actual, empirical, save-the-world-one-moisturizer-at-a-time proof.

Origins Organics is available from P1000 to P2750 at Rustan's Makati.
