Rodale’s, headquartered in the Lehigh Valley town of Emmaus; parent company Rodale Inc. has long been a proponent of wellness, publishing such magazines as Prevention and Men’s Health, and books like Wheat Belly, by William Davis, and The Honest Life, by Jessica Alba. The company’s commitment to healthy living also is reflected in the beauty products sold on its website, rodales.com. Here are a few of my favorites:
1. Rosemary + Lemongrass Sugar Scrub by Captain Blankenship. A blend of organic cane sugar, lemongrass, rosemary and blood-orange essential oils gently exfoliates and moisturizes face, body and lips, $24.
2. Raw Coconut Cream by RMS Beauty. Organic coconut cream works great on sensitive skin as a makeup remover and facial cleanser. Use as a moisturizer for really dry areas, $18.
3. La Balmba Rosa Healing Rose Balm by R.L. Linden & Co. This vegan balm has a light rose scent. Use it to moisturize lips or as a cuticle softener. $22.
4. Organic Coconut Bath Soak by Herbivore Botanicals. If you like the scent of coconut, indulge in this bath soak. Really leaves your skin feeling hydrated. $28
