The Green Thirteen #16: Russell Organics Review

Friday, December 11, 2009 Posted by Dina N

Russell Organics offers a line of luxury skin care products that are free of known toxins. Russell Organics products are Certified Cruelty Free and meet Certified Vegan Standards. That means they never use animal testing or animal products in their formulations. In addition, the company uses organic ingredients whenever a dependable organic supplier can be found. Besides skin care for the face and body, Russell Organics has a men's line and carries a selection of gourmet teas.

The first thing I noticed when I received the Russell Organics Creme 24 was the packaging. You know how some moisturizers come in a big thick jar, complete with plastic and carton box? By the time you realize the quantity of cream inside is much less than expected, it's too late. And what a waste of packaging material and energy used for making the jar / box combo and transporting this unnecessary weight! The Creme 24 comes in a recyclable jar made of thin but resilient plastic, topped with a metal foil lid. Kudos for a commitment to the environment that extends to the product packaging! I found out later that one of the four founding principles of Russell Organics is to operate as a Carbon Free organization. No useless boxes and heavy thick-wall jars here.

The creme is made with high-quality natural ingredients, most of them organic. It contains organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, and Organic Alfalfa Extract as the main ingredients - see the full list here. The consistency of this creme is thicker than lotion but thinner than most face creams I've used. It absorbs very quickly, and has a slight scent of botanicals. The Creme 24 is an all-on-one moisturizer and I used it as both a day and night creme. It did not irritate my sensitive skin and left my face feeling toned and refreshed. This creme is specially formulated to offer hydration, gentle exfoliation, and anti-wrinkle action. It is suitable for all skin types and comes in a 4 oz jar.  I found that all that's needed to get its moisturizing benefit was a small amount, and it seems this creme will last a while.  I've been  using it every day and I am very pleased with the results.

If you are looking for a luxury skin care product for yourself or as a gift, check out Russell Organics. Their products can be found at boutiques, spas and retail locations, as well as online.

    This sounds like a very nice cream. Most creams can only be used at night. This one really soaks in and it is nice that you can use it in the morning too. I'd rather have just one product for morning and night...rather than two.

    Thanks for the review.
