What: Additive Free Cosmetics

Why: With so many extra’s in skincare and makeup products today, it’s hard to find something without perfume, harmful dyes, etc. However, those with sensitive skin might find what they are looking for in HABA, a 24-year-old Japanese company that’s only opened up stateside in 2005.

Most of the products utilize squalane (shark liver oil). Squalane is the same oil found in small amounts in our own skin, and helps to restore its youthful appearance. It is combined with vitamin C in ‘Fair Lady’ to lighten age spots and in ‘Q10’ to reduce wrinkles.

One recommended non-squalane product is HABA’s powder wash – perfect for dry or overworked skin.

If you’re confused by all the products on the site, call HABA’s Portland, Oregon store at 1-888-770-HABA (4222). They are used to answering detailed questions about their skincare and makeup.

Price: $13-$60 for skincare products
