Finding good quality vegan make-up and skin care that is made locally, and which won’t irritate my very sensitive skin, can be a tall order, but I am fortunate to have discovered Cosmic Tree Essentials, a company based in the beautiful Town of Wolfville, in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Cosmic Tree is recognized by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics as a Safe Cosmetics Champion Company. All products are cruelty free and vegan. The picture above shows owner and creator Beth Thompson and her display in the Wolfville Farmers’ Market. Some of Beth’s products can be found at Pete’s Frootique in Halifax, but I can’t get anywhere near the range of products here, so I also buy her products from her online store, and whenever I have the good fortune to travel to Wolfville. On a daily basis, I use her loose mineral face powder, eye shadows, blush, and lipstick. I use also her Neroli Facial Cleanser and Meadowfoam Moisturizer.
