Founded by two biologists, Tvål Skincare swathes bodies with handmade soaps, mineral make-ups, and unique cosmetic concoctions. Train your jaw to clamp before devouring a sweet-scented blueberry basil cupcake soap ($6), a vegan treat that is as refreshing for the skin as it is instrumental in community building—a portion of the proceeds go to Marguerite's Place to provide safe housing for women. Tvål blends the antibacterial benefits of honey with vitamin A and potassium to satisfy facial thirst with the banana-honey face mask ($14), and organic products such as all-natural deodorant ($12) help keep bodies smelling sweet on hot days or while shot putting old computer monitors.
Alternatively, those opting to fortify their features can scoop up an array of mineral makeup, including an Illuminating Dusting Powder ($15) forged from silk mica. The gentle powder leaves cheekbones and brow bones with a luminous glow reminiscent of a pregnant firefly. Shoppers can blush bashful third eyelids with the periwinkle shimmer of Bon Echo eye shadow($7), enhanced with sparkling diamond flecks, or get ready for subaqueous canoodling by cloaking mouths in Mermaid’s Kiss lip glaze ($10). As an added bonus, a savvy Tvål Skincare staffer provides a free makeup consultation to help shoppers find products to flatter faces.
Biologists Anna Hellqvist and Jason Bailey founded Tvål in 2003 to market beautifying products they hand made from natural ingredients such as jojoba oil and shea butter. Joined in 2005 by Jason's brother Robert Bailey—who brought along his 14 years of experience as a professional makeup artist—the Tvål team today manufactures a line of mineral makeups free of preservatives, chemical dyes, or fillers, in addition to natural facial skincare, lotions, and homemade soaps. Besides foundation, lip gloss, and eye shadow, the eco-conscious company continues to expand its lines of products made from all-natural ingredients, much like the ground bamboo panda bears try to pass off as meatloaf at Thanksgiving.
