The purpose of our Shop from your Seat Showcase is to help promote & support small businesses & female small business owners. One of the companies in our showcase has that same mission. Alex+Von offers high quality, eco-friendly products from several boutique brands which are small businesses themselves. When you purchase from Alex+Von you help the consultant you are purchasing from, the small business boutique brand and Alex+Von which is also a female owned small business. That is a triple win in my book!
Even more so than that, Alex+Von only offers eco-friendly products from socially-responsible companies. They guarantee their products are free of “ingredients which have been identified as endocrine disruptors, possible causes of cancer and generally harmful to environment“. You can read more about their mission, story and ingredient promise here.
One of the brands they carry that I really love is 100% Pure. Just like the name says, their products do not contain any synthetic, fragrance, paraben or toxins. “100% Pure marries all-natural ingredients with high-end cosmetic formulas to create beauty in a class of its own. 100% Pure is the first and only cosmetics colored from antioxidant rich fruit and vegetable pigments (patents pending).”
A few of my favorite products from the 100% Pure line include: French Lavender Body Butter, Softest Hands 4 pc Hand Cream Set and the Cruelty Free Makeup Brushes. The Yummy Ice Cream Sets for Kids make great gifts for the little ones in your life!
EO® is another brand whose products I love! (EO stands for Essential Oils) “EO® is a family owned and operated Certified Organic Manufacturer of personal care products using the highest grade natural and certified organic ingredients. The products are formulated with beneficial and synergistic herbs, essential oils and natural ingredients to be gentle, effective and free from animal testing, synthetic colors, fragrances and harsh chemicals.”
EO®’s products smell absolutely amazing and like the real thing because they are in fact the real thing! I love their Coconut & Vanilla Body Cream. They have many great scents to choose from for women, men and kids. The Wild Lime & Ginger Hair Repair does wonders on hair damaged from heat, coloring or stress. Oatmeal & Honey Bar Soap is great for sensitive skin and for those who don’t like strong scented bath products. The Tiny Kisses Gift Set makes a great stocking stuffer and is something you may want to purchase to try out several scents/products before purchasing the full size ones.
Alex+Von currently offers additional products from other boutique brands including: Original Moxie, suki, au naturale, Episencial, Good for you Girls & Grateful Body. From eco-friendly and amazingly high quality makeup to bath & body products, to skincare and household cleaning products – you can find what you need and great gifts for others too!
