Au Naturale Gorgeousness:
Top Natural Beauty Stores in Woodland Hills
Walking into a modern outlet like Sephora can be a bit overwhelming – and even disorienting – for natural beauty-seeking fashionistas, as stores like this expect you to do your ingredient research on your own. Some, with exception of a few such as Sephora, even refuse to share the average woman’s concern for what’s in their beauty products. There are, however, a growing number of natural beauty stores throughout the U.S. that take all the guesswork out of the equation and have even added a heaping tablespoon of transparency and natural beauty curation.
These shops – from Boston to Woodland Hills – are run by beauty gurus who are all too eager to share their passion for ingredient purity, priding themselves on scouting and stocking completely natural (and uber-effective) beauty products. The next time your moisturizer runs low, check out the following natural beauty stores in Woodland Hills…you won’t be disappointed.
