Review: Sia Botanics

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

I recently was introduced to a line of natural skin care based in Tucson called Sia Botanics.  Founded in 2009, the mission of  Sia Botanics is to encourage consumers to use ingredients that are grown as opposed to created in a lab. Their products live up to this mission, as the ingredients are natural and wholesome, while effective at the same time.

I've had the chance to try out some of their products and I'd like to review them today for you.




Sia Botanicals Ocean Minerals Moisturizer is a natural facial lotion with 92 trace elements and minerals from the ocean. It has lovely ingredients that are all Chic & Green approved, with the exception of palm oil. Find out why we aren't fond of palm oil here

Texture wise, this moisturizer has the ideal consistency for most skin types.  It is lightweight, while being ultra nourishing at the same time.  It is gentle and free of synthetic fragrances, so it won't trigger allergies or asthma. There is hyaluronic acid, one of my favorite ingredients in skin care, so your skin will be plumped, nourished, and it'll help retain that moisture.

The price point is wonderful for natural facial products, as it is a 4 ounce bottle for $20. Overall, I would give this moisturizer a B. I would rate it an A if not for the palm oil, though, because it really is a lovely product.

I am in love with the Blueberry Oxygenating Exfoliator! It is a beautifully crafted product that truly lives up to its claims.  The ingredients are 100% Chic & Green approved and they are really effective in this product.  First of all, there is aloe vera, so it is soothing.  This gently exfoliates the skin, revealing a fresh and glowing complexion in just one use. You truly will notice results right after using this one.  It contains blueberries, cranberry seeds, pomegranata, rhubarb and more.  You don't often hear about rhubarb in skin care, so let's learn what it can do.

Rhubarb is actually a very calming skin care ingredient. It is underused, in my opinion.  It is full of antioxidants and contains cartenoids (think carrots).  It also contains silica, which is a mineral for the skin proven to strengthen hair and nails.

I rate this one an easy A+, my highest score. They also give you 4 ounces of product for $20. This is about double the amount of product of rival companies.

I was also sent a pumpkin mask that I'll be telling you about later. I sent it to a lovely blog reader in Texas and will share her feedback on it with you later.

I highly recommend taking a look at Sia Botanics
