This kit includes some of our best selling products and everything you need to get started on the path to healthy, radiant skin.
Many other cleansers use harsh surfactants or sudsing agents that actually strip the skin of its environmental protective barrier. You won’t find them in our Cleanser. Instead, we use the mildest surfactant available, a sugar surfactant, to remove substances like makeup, which stubbornly adhere to the skin.
Naturally derived from sugars, this is the mildest of sudsing agents or surfactants. It has excellent cleansing and moisturizing properties that leave skin dirt and irritation free.
A surfactant booster that contributes both extra emollient properties as well as cleansing effectiveness.

As we age, skin becomes drier and duller. Drier because we are producing less natural oils that keep it lubricated, and duller because, as our cell turnover rate slows, more dead skin cells accumulate on the surface, making skin appear blotchy and rough in texture.
We all exfoliate naturally, shedding millions of dead skin cells daily. But cleansing is still necessary to remove the daily accumulation of dirt and oil, sunscreen, and makeup. Cleanser is perfect for daily use, gently washing away the grime while keeping the topmost layer of the epidermis—the stratum corneum—intact. And, as fresh skin cells replace the old, the top layer of skin gradually becomes smoother, softer and more supple.
"Intelligent Ingredients" is more than just a tagline. It’s the overriding principle that guides every formulation at Marie Veronique Organics. That’s because science tells us that what goes on your skin ultimately penetrates your skin and goes into your body. The right ingredients can do a world of good and the wrong ones quite the opposite. Before an ingredient gets added to a product we make sure it does the right thing, efficiently and without causing harm to you or the planet.
Using our deep scientific understanding of the aging process, we turn to nature for potent ingredients that will counter—and even reverse—the effects of aging skin. Our ingredients are selected to penetrate deep within the skin, working exactly where the aging action happens, rather than simply staying on the surface. And above all else, we stand by our philosophy that toxic ingredients, harmful chemicals, artificial agents and preservatives are not the solution for making your skin look and feel younger.
It’s probably no surprise that our entire company is dedicated to sustainability. Wherever possible we use natural, organic and fair trade ingredients, packaged in 100% recyclable materials. And we source them as close to our Mill Valley headquarters as possible to keep our footprint super small.
Shake well before use and keep in a cool place. Massage gently onto wet skin. Rinse. If irritation develops discontinue use and consult a physician.
