On Thursday I attended a night of eco beauty hosted by

Follain

, a new all natural healthy skin care shop in the south end.  Follain recently opened and I've been meaning to check it out for a while, so the eco beauty event was the perfect excuse to finally see what Follain is all about!  Let me tell you, I am OBSESSED! The products are highly curated, non-toxic, locally made cosmetics and toiletries. Plus, the event was a blast, bringing together women from

Silent Spring Institute

,

Sustainable Business Network

,

Urbanity Dance Studio

,

The Compact for Safe Cosmetics

,

Practically Green

, and more. We nibbled on bites from

Root

 while discussing toxins found in traditional body washes and lotions. We also had fun sampling Follain's products; I ended up purchasing an

aluminum free deodorant

. If your beauty routine needs a revamp, I highly suggest checking out Follain, trust me, you'll fall in love.
