When you think of chemists, toxic mixtures and explosive materials probably come to mind. You wouldn’t want to put that stuff on your skin, so forget everything you know about chemistry. Origins was started by a team of chemists, but their beakers were filled with plant based ingredients, like Rose of Jericho, essential oils and mushroom extract, instead of corrosive materials. Those same scientists studied their potential ingredients, and created a line of skincare, makeup and hair care products sourced from therapeutic plants. Origins products are free from harmful ingredients like parabens, mineral oil and paraffin, and are vegan friendly. You can buy the entire line at kiosk locations in department stores, standalone locations throughout the nation and on the Origins website.
