Welcome to our new look!

March 2022 for immediate release.

Be Green Bath + Body is proud to announce our brand refresh!  Our new logo, colors and labels better represent our artisan, all-natural and multi-purpose skincare products.  The botanical logo and rich spruce green reflect our dedication to using plant-based ingredients.  The colorful labels are both eye-catching and simple- just like our skincare.  They showcase the soothing greens, blues, yellows and oranges found in nature and are reflective of our wholesome and transparent values.

In addition to these changes:

  • We have transformed the packaging for our creams and reduced the price! 
  • Updated the formulas for several products with high performance, skin-loving ingredients.
  • Released new products.
  • Retired a few sizes, scents and products

NEW PRODUCTS!

  • POMEGRANATE + WHITE TEA TONER (for dry skin):  This replaces our Refreshing Rose Toner. It is essential oil free and contains a very high percentage of organic rose flower water as well as organic extracts of white tea, pomegranate, rice, gotu kola and acai.  These ingredients have excellent antioxidant properties and Vitamin C for counteracting aging and wrinkles.
  • CALENDULA + CARROT TONER (for sensitive skin):  This replaces our Calming Carrot Toner.  It is essential oil free and contains extracts of carrot, calendula, lavender and lady's mantle extract.  These ingredients are high in essential fatty acids and phytosterols that are beneficial for damaged skin.  Calendula is rich in flavonoids and saponins,  helping to soften, repair and prevent tissue degeneration.  Lady's Mantle is an anti-inflammatory that helps to reduce the appearance of redness and irritation on the skin.
  • CUCUMBER + WATERMELON TONER (for normal/combination skin):  Use this toner in place of Healthy Skin Balancing Toner or Ylang Ylang Toner.  It is essential oil free and contains extracts of watermelon, cucumber, green tea and willow bark.  These ingredients contain lycopene, Vitamin C, caffeic acid and amino acids that help to moisturize and soothe skin irritations and promote healthy, hydrated skin. Willow bark contains a natural salicylic acid and green tea is a powerful antioxidant.

Day Creams and Night Creams

  • New larger 2oz size! More cream, 25% lower price and less shipping reduces the carbon footprint.
  • To reflect our commitment to the planet, we have retired the airless pump bottles in favor of jars.  The bottles used more plastic than we were comfortable with, the pumps did not always pop back up and it was difficult to get every last bit of cream out. 
  • The new jars are made from PCR (post-consumer recycled) plastic.  They are single-walled (meaning they use much less plastic than a double-walled jar), have aluminum lids are are PETE recycle code #1.
  • The creams have the following added ingredients:
    • Potassium Sorbate-  Used as a mild preservative and as a paraben alternative to prevent or retard the growth of microorganisms and protect the products from spoiling. It has been found to effective against fungi, mold, and yeast.
    • Magnesium Sulfate- Also known as Epsom Salt has a stabilizing effect on water-in-oil emulsions and improves the consistency of the emulsion (mixing of oil and water).
    • Sodium Phytate- An all-natural chelating agent that can be used as a replacement for disodium and tetrasodium EDTA.  Helps with product preservation, moisturizes skin and improves elasticity.
    • Sodium Citrate- The sodium salt of citric acid, it helps to manage the pH of formulations and to reduce microbial growth which ensures safer, longer lasting products.
    • Arrowroot Powder- Functions as a thickening and opacifying agent that favorably affects texture and oiliness.
    • Niacinamide- Added to the Night Creams. A form of vitamin B3, this ingredient supports the skin barrier (the outer surface of skin), increases its resiliency, and improves texture by making pores look smaller. It the helps balance oil production, and is good for all skin types.

Dry Cleansing Grains 

  • Reduced the amount of oat flour so grains mix more easily with water.
  • Added the following ingredients:
    • Organic Coconut Milk:  Contains amino acids and antioxidants. Acts as an effective cleanser while hydrating and soothing skin.
    • Organic Match Green Tea:  An antioxidant that scavenges free radicals caused by environmental stressors like UV radiation and pollution.  Soothes skin.  Minimizes signs of aging.
    • Organic Papaya Fruit:  Contains papain that is attributed with soothing skin irritations. An anti-inflammatory that has exfoliating properties to brighten the skin by removing dead skin cells.
    • Organic Maqui Berry Powder: An antioxidant powerhouse! Contains the highest antioxidant value of any known superfruit.  Also acts as an exfoliant in powder form.
    • Arrowroot Powder:  Enhances the texture of the cleanser and helps to brighten skin.

Shaving Foam

  • Added the following ingredients:
    • Organic Witch Hazel Hydrosol:  Soothes skin throughout the shaving process.  Helps to reduce inflammation and redness.
    • AHA's (alpha hydroxy acids) of bilberry, sugar cane, orange, lemon and sugar cane:  Brightens skin and leaves it smoother and softer.
    • Hydrolyzed Rice Protein:  Film former and moisturizer that creates a more hydrated and elastic surface.  An effective anti-irritant and leaves a smooth, dry feel on the skin.

Cleansers

  • Green Tea Cleanser has the following changes:
    • Rice Bran Extract:  Used to soften and condition the skin with its rich source of antioxidant compounds. Contains moisturizing polysaccharides.
  • Gentle Facial Cleanser- Removed honey (making product vegan) and added a higher amount of glycerin (a humectant that draws water to the skin surface), jojoba oil and apricot kernel oil (for increased moisture).

Dry Shampoo

  • Made the following ingredient changes:
    • Added Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder:  Packed full of antioxidants and polyphenols.  Contains panthenol which is a natural hair strengthener.
    • Added Organic Papaya Powder:  High in vitamins A & C. Helps to condition hair.
    • Removed nettle powder. 
Makeup Remover
  • Removed essential oils of lavender and mandarin so the product can be used by those who are sensitive to essential oils.  You may continue to add essential oils on your own.  Start by add 6 drops and no more than 10 drops.
  • Discontinued the 1oz size.

Hand Soaps and Shower Gels

  • Slightly modified the essential oils in the citrus, lavender and lemongrass scents.

  • Refreshing Rose Toner, Calming Carrot Toner, Healthy Skin Balancing Toner and Ylang Ylang Toner have been replaced.  Please see above for descriptions.
