Thanks, Brandie Gilliam, Organic Beauty Talk founder, for sharing this awesome news just in time for holiday season.

Organic Beauty Talk has launched an online curated pop-up shop this holiday season full of hand-crafted, high-performing, made in the USA beauty favorites. Find skin, body, hair and makeup must-haves from over 12 years of testing all in one place that are good for you, the environment and small businesses across America.

“Instead of having a store with a huge selection of products and brands, I decided to narrow the focus of the shop to products that are best in category” says Brandie.

“I’ve tested hundreds of products over the years and developed an amazing community of readers since Organic Beauty Talk launched in May 2011. I’ve positioned Organic Beauty Talk as a resource for helping people connect with non-toxic brands that work and have found that readers want specific guidance on which products to purchase.

“It can be confusing when you’re trying to make the switch from commercial toxic laden beauty products to pure healthy ones and want help. There are so many products and brands out there that the discovery process can be overwhelming. And many of the really great ones aren’t found at your local grocery, drug or specialty store. They’re found online and on many different websites. So in an effort to do something special for our readers and make shopping easier, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite American-made beauty products all in one place.”

Here’s why I’m super excited about this launch:

You’ll find hand-selected products from trusted brands like Vapour Organic Beauty, May Lindstrom, Kari Gran, Alima Pure, S.W. Basics, HollyBeth Organics, Tallulah Jane, Lina Hanson, Indie Lee, Osmia Organics, MUN, Schmidt’s Deodorant, Blissoma, Marble & Milkweed, Waxelene, Honeybee Gardens, Soap Cartel, nyl Skincare, Sheswai and more.

It’s a shop full of award-winning editor tested and approved American-made beauty favorites. While I adore and purchase non-American products, I value the goal of staying local and supporting home-grown businesses. Nice!

Let me assure you, I will not be waiting for the holidays to start browsing and buying! And for anyone who might be wondering what to buy me…wonder no more. Not a product here that I would not absolutely LOVE.
