All natural skin care for both ladies and gentlemen.

A few years back, I had had enough of unexpected breakouts and occasional irritation on my skin.  I decided to throw away the idea of putting harsh chemicals on my face that seem to appear in almost all over-the-counter facial creams, such as salicylic acid and retinol.  These may work for some, but not for me.  I soon realized that I was allergic to salicylic acid and decided to make the switch to all natural products.  After a few months I saw significant improvement; however the cost was astronomical.  So, I decided to start making my own creams and lotions.  I instantly fell in love with the art of creating my own products.  After 2 years of research and a lot of sweat and tears, I  began to understand how the oils and the infusions worked together depending on their particular properties. After working with recipes I’d read about, I began creating my own recipes based on my own research.  The all natural products in my skin care line are the result of many, many months of dedication in learning the medicinal properties of each essential oil and how those oils can be combined to create skincare products for your individual type of skin.

Inspired by ancient medicinal botanics and Ayurvedic practices, 2nd Street Cosmetics has created each product with care, purpose and intent. 

Healthy skin begins with a healthy lifestyle.  When we look at our lifestyle using a holistic approach by incorporating a healthy diet, exercise and using pure ingredients we can see that our skin is reflective of our health and should be treated with the upmost care.

Healthy skin glows, without make-up.  Getting rid of those  'chemically enriched' cosmetics and using only the purist ingredients will give your skin the luster and glow that Mother Nature intended.  You will notice a significant difference in how your skin looks and feels; and thats because it's able to breathe.  Chemicals and low grade oils found in many cosmetics sit on top of your skin preventing oxygenation and can cause dullness and breakouts.  Our products are made using pure essential oils, creamy butters and ancient clays from around the world, which penetrate deep into your derma-layers, leaving you with nourished, healthy, glowing skin.

Browse our entire collection which includes daily face moisturizers, face toning liquid, toner tabs and concentrated facial elixirs.  We are excited to introduce our newly designed 'gents' line for men.  Our mens line has products including daily face moisturizers, aftershave, beard oil and body dusting powders.
