The American woman uses an average of 12 beauty products a day, containing nearly 200 chemicals that go largely unregulated by the FDA – according to a 2004 study by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). On top of that, over 120 billion packaging units for the cosmetics industry are produced every year, making it pretty difficult for modern women to feel good about their self-care routine.
Enter Earth’s Shell, a beauty brand that embraces sustainability and ingredient transparency to deliver simple, effective, and ethical skincare products.
Created by Latina Cosmetologist Estefani German, Earth’s Shell products are free of chemicals and toxic ingredients that harm the human body and our planet, cutting down on the carbon footprint of every order. They are formulated without parabens, phthalates, and mineral oils and are vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, non-GMO with no harmful additives or fillers.
Our concept of self-care or “shell-care” means devoting time to your mental, physical and spiritual health without the pressure surrounding the self-care movement today. Self-care is simple. Self-care is natural. Self-care doesn’t need any fuss or frills. We believe in caring for ourselves and caring for our environment as well. More people than ever want to know what ingredients are included in their products, avoiding ingredients that harm the human body and our planet.
Mother Nature gives us everything we need to nourish our bodies inside and out, so we want to ensure we are kind back to her and leave her undisturbed. Our products are ethically-sourced, natural, and Leaping Bunny Certified.– Estefani German, founder of Earth’s Shell

I recently gave my mother the “Firm-Shell” Firming Body Oil to try and she absolutely loves it! One of her biggest insecurities is her cellulite and stretch marks around her stomach, thighs, and butt. After over a month of usage she has seen amazing results and the tightening of her skin in those areas.
She absolutely loves it and recommends it to all of her friends out here in Phoenix. It smells amazing and you just put it on before bed or after the shower!– Tyler Hollis, Editor in Chief of AZFoothills.com
