raw / inspired / pure / earth
made from plants grown in California + Hawaii
What is RIPE?
whole foods for skin
for use by all skin types on face, hair, body + abode
aloe vera | avocado oil | clove | coconut soap | grapeseed oil | kukui nut oil | rose water | pikake oil | white rice | witch hazel
(yup, that’s everything)
grown, harvested + bottled with respect for our planet
“The phenomena of the physical world collectively, including plants, animals, the landscape, as opposed to humans or human creation.” - English
“The land we are a part of.” - Hawaiian definition of ‘aina
We may not have an English word for nature that includes us humans (yet) but...
we are nature
We are completely made of raw pure Earth. Plants evolved with us + for us. Living RIPE is a way to celebrate the symbiotic relationship between your self + your surroundings.
Safe, effective, sensorial...
ethical, environmentally conscious, domestically sourced...
artful, soul-quenching + ritualistic.
Your skin care products should be all of these things for one big obvious reason... it works.
less is more
you are nature
a few well chosen plants are all your skin needs
What are the benefits of RIPE?
botanical nutrients repair damage, calm redness + prevent acne
gentle flowers + aloe keep skin smooth to the touch
rich fatty plant oils rejuvenate + moisturize
connects you with nature + frees your spirit for a healthy life
minimal is beautiful
nature is simple
rituals with pure earth bring mindfulness to skin care
Ritual sets aside time for a purposeful moment...the focus is on the self.
Face care is an opportunity to practice mindfulness in the present + intentionally connect the self with the Earth. Observe the details during your rituals: meditate on the scents of the plants, the texture of your skin, the joy of being alive.
Create depth in a ritual by addressing multiple purposes with one product. For example, after massaging the Healing Serum onto your face rub the extra on our cuticles, smooth it onto your hair + lovingly touch a bit onto to any recent nicks, cuts, or insect bites on your body. Finish with mountain pose + a long breath of gratitude.
Building simple face care rituals of flowing muscle memory encourages you to repeat self-loving gestures + heighten your quality of life on Earth. Evoke the truth that is already in the room: you are nature.
What are RIPE’s practices?
clean renewable plant ingredients (ten total) sourced from responsible domestic growers
reusable printed glassware in larger planet-conscious bottles
positive language is our norm, but sometimes you need to get your damn point across...
NO CHEMICALLY-ALTERED INGREDIENTS
NO ADDED "FRAGRANCE"
NO LABELING GLUE
CA + HI GROWN
RIPE sources exclusively from domestic growers who prioritize sustainability, organic practices, environmental impact + love of the land.
Both the FDA + the USDA warn that the term "organic" is not a measure of safety or sustainability. Toxins are grossly under-regulated in cosmetics in the US, harming consumers who unknowingly absorb them, while lab manufacturing practices + plastic packaging bring even further harm to the planet.
As such, consumers + makers of beauty products in the US must take it upon ourselves to determine whether or not a plant is safe for use on our bodies + in our homes. We must be aware of how plants are taken from Earth + the processing methods after harvesting.
RIPE supports growers + makers in California + Hawaii who are living with ethical values, changing the planet for the better.
