We’re having a little love affair, and we’re so excited that we can’t keep it a secret any longer. Sponge Skincare is our new obsession. If you don’t already love it, you will, and we’re willing to share. This all-natural, organic brand was originally created by an OB/GYN in Greece to give pregnant patients (read: friends) products to rejuvenate their skin and improve circulation. It was never intended to be sold, but word got out and these products became highly sought after. The line is now coveted by celebs and non-pregnant women.
The line of 15 über-organic, hand-blended products for face and body are created using Greece’s rich and active plants and botanicals. Founder Markos Lambros Drakotos ensures that each plant is at its healthiest stage and in season when harvested to create the most powerful ingredients. Products include ladi avokanto avocado oil (US $100), an avocado anti-aging, firming and wrinkle reducing oil, krema triantafallo rose + sage cream (US $65) for strengthening and hydrating sensitive skin and galaktoma somatos body milk (US $65) to cool, soothe and hydrate even the most parched skin.
Each delicious Sponge product is 100 percent chemical and cruelty-free (perfect for those who are preggers), and all packaging is 100 percent recyclable and biodegradable.
