I recently shared I have had to become a green beauty blogger out of necessity, so the hunt is on! My skin is no longer reacting well to preservatives and other gunk found in many beauty and skincare products. One premium skincare brand that kept coming up in research and recommended by friends was Tata Harper. Therefore I knew I needed to try some of the products. The line was founded in 2010 by Tata Harper with the brilliant idea people no longer have to sacrifice their health to look and feel beautiful.
Tata Harper manufactures 100% nontoxic, premium skincare products made with the world’s most advanced anti-aging technology. All of the research and development, formulations, packaging, marketing and distribution are done in-house in the company’s Open Lab in Vermont.
Tata, a Colombian-born mother of three, has used her industrial engineering degree to make it a personal mission to redefine the beauty industry. She actively sought a way to provide an alternative to luxury beauty products that were laden with industrial synthetics and potentially toxic chemicals, and to beauty brands that “greenwash” their customers with false claims.
So Tata went on a four-year journey with a team of 8 chemists, herbalists and biologists to develop from scratch a premium line that not only treats skin issues and offers real anti-aging results, but is a pleasure to use. Her quest for the most potent and effective active ingredients took her from ancient-walled castles of Europe to the Brazilian Amazon to the far reaches of Egypt, where she consulted with the world’s top botanists and natural beauty experts.
As I have recently learned myself, synthetic ingredients and potentially toxic chemicals do not need to be in beauty products. In fact, some ingredients we are applying to our skin are downright scary. Not only are naturally derived ingredients better for your health, but since they are biocompatible with skin, they can deliver amazing results!
ABOUT TATA HARPER SKINCARE
Tata Harper Skincare resides on a 1,200 acre farm in the heart of the Champlain Valley of Vermont and is home to the headquarters for the entire Tata Harper Skincare operation. In 2011, they began to take the steps to receive Organic Certification from the Vermont Organic Farmers Association for herb production, fruit production and alfalfa and oat production. Cultivating their own ingredients gives valuable insight into the agricultural aspect of product development; when ingredients are sourced from around the world, they carefully choose farms that practice sustainable agriculture and meet the criteria of third-party certifiers like EcoCert.
Owning the research, development and production process from start to finish ensures high quality every step of the way. Tata Harper Skincare manufactures in small batches in their Vermont laboratory so the products are as fresh as possible when they are purchased. All formulas contain no generic fillers or premade bases – every ingredient has a specific purpose and delivers targeted results.
TATA HARPER’S BEAUTY AWARDS
Luckily Tata Harper’s skincare products have been highly recognized in the press and to date the company has received over 25 national beauty awards from publications including Allure, Elle, InStyle and Shape! As the industry shifts its focus towards nontoxic solutions, it’s no surprise editors and consumers nationwide have gravitated towards Tata Harper Skincare – these prestigious awards are a testament to the beauty industry’s natural evolution towards green beauty. Hopefully one day soon we will no longer have to question what’s in our skincare.
Tata Harper products are available at stores and sites like Neiman Marcus, Net-a-Porter and Sephora. Sure, they cost a pretty penny, but your skin and your well-being are worth the investment, especially if you are seeking natural anti-aging solutions.
PRODUCTS I TRIED
I was lucky enough to a few of the products form the line like the Purifying Mask (which is beyond amazing), the Illuminating moisturizer and eye cream, the Concentrated Brightening Essence, the Lip and Cheek Tint, and a couple of the lip treatments. Not only do the products smell amazing, they work! I am absolutely obsessed with these products now. It’s almost sad I had no idea youth could be found in a natural elixir. Now I do.
