"Nadine Artemis, co-owner and creator of the Living Libations beauty line with a
boutique in Venice, uses a variety of superfood ingredients in her products
(which include elixirs, serums and essential oils).
Check the fine print on various Living Libations bottles and jars and
you might find avocado oil (for brightening and moisturizing skin),
virgin coconut oil (for moisturizing skin), cacao butter (for moisturizing and
healing); wildflower honey (included for its antioxidants and moisturizing
properties); and green papaya (which can brighten, heal and smooth the skin).
The line has attracted fans — listed on the website — including
Alanis Morissette, Shailene Woodley and Shiva Rose.
"Transdermal absorption is an amazing gift we have that we can use to boost
our beauty and health," says Artemis, who started to make some of her own
cosmetics as a college student.
In her 2017 book "Renegade Beauty: Reveal and Revive Your Natural Radiance
--Beauty Secrets, Solutions, and Preparations,"
Artemis lists a number of recipes for DIY beauty and skin care products...."
