Skin Type: Oily
Neutralizing excess oil can be simple with a few of our skin balancing products like our Clarifying Facial Wash, Clarifying Herbal Astringent and Perfect Hydration Oil-Free Moisturizer. With perfectly pH balanced formulas that prevent the over-drying of skin and balancing herbal blends to neutralize excess oil, these formulas keep skin looking fresh everyday.

Skin Type: Dry
For dry skin, adding long-lasting moisture that doesn’t leave an oily or heavy residue is key. Gentle cleansers like our A-D-E Creamy Fruit Oil Cleanser help to wash away impurities without stripping natural oils while moisturizers with plant-extracted emollients like our Apricot Night Cream and Azulene Eye Cream deliver nutrition deep into skin cells.

Skin Type: Combination
Combination skin types need both hydration and oil control without over-drying. Gentle, yet effective treatments includes our Papaya-Glycolic Radiant Skin Masque to reveal refreshed skin, and our Aloe Vera Complexion Toner & Freshener to remove impurities, makeup and residue keeping skin clear without harsh cleansers.

Skin Type: Sensitive
Sensitive skin can be beautiful skin with simple, non-irritating facial care. Fragrance free products without masking fragrance like our Fragrance Free Clarifying Facial Wash, Chamomile & Green Tea Eye Makeup Remover and Fragrance Free Almond-Aloe Moisturizer help to cleanse and moisturize even the most delicate skin. Balancing and providing perfect hydration with botanicals and without dyes or harsh surfactants to achieve your best skin yet.

We are pleased to announce 10 years of partnership with Carbonfund.org and the Carbonfree Partner Program. Our initiatives to fight global warming for cleaner, and more sustainable business practices, leading to a healthier earth today and tomorrow, are fueled by our passion to keep our environment green.

Keeping the Golden State Golden
Reducing our carbon footprint is a daily priority at Earth Science and we make our best efforts to walk the walk from the products we make to our daily office life. We love our home in California and choose to manufacture locally within the Golden State. By sourcing components locally and choosing recycled & recyclable content whenever possible, we reduce the transportation of goods and materials daily. We believe our higher standards for vendors and raw material suppliers increases awareness for the care of our beautiful planet. Each small step creates an impact, so we pride ourselves in the details like our packing material, a biodegradable, and compostable material made from potato starch.

Sustainability is in our culture
We use local recycling programs and promote a paperless work environment in our offices to reduce and reuse materials and supplies every day. Though our staff loves their coastal commutes, our 4-day workweek reduces vehicle emissions, uses less power & resources, and leaves a little more time to enjoy nature’s beauty.

Completing the Circle
Through our partnership and work with Carbonfund, we are pleased to contribute to the planting of over 100 trees each year and aiding in reforestation efforts. Our contribution to forest preservation helps to create jobs, maintain and expand our wildlife habitats, protects biodiversity, and improves local environmental quality.

We are so excited to celebrate and share this milestone, and thank you for making our contribution possible.
