For those of you that don’t know, I’ve recently partnered up with Rustic Maka!
I recently made a short 4-minute IGTV video about their most recent care-package that they sent me.
Rustic Maka is a family owned business that makes cruelty-free, natural + organic, non-GMO, paraben-free, synthetic fragrance-free, vegan skin care products 🙂 And they’re also made in the USA!
And these products aren’t just cruelty-free, they’re amazing!
I’m in love with their deodorants.. And when it comes to deodorants, you’ll wanna make sure they’re healthy for your skin, not just cruelty-free. Heavy metals such as aluminum can cause serious havoc to your health.
Studies have claimed that a majority of breast cancers develop in the upper outer quadrant of the breast because that section is closest to the underarms, where antiperspirants (which theoretically get absorbed by the skin or enter through razor nicks) are applied. The concern is that the aluminum then gets into the lymph nodes and then travels to the breasts. They say this is most likely because aluminum plugs the sweat ducts, so your body can’t rid itself of any potentially cancerous substances absorbed during antiperspirant use.
If you’re wanting to learn more about why you should buy non-antiperspirant deodorants from Rustic Maka, you can check out my Cruelty-Free Vegan Deodorant blog post!
Anyways, why should you buy your deodorants and skin car products from Rustic Maka?
I’ll give you my three main reasons 🙂
1) They’re setting a new standard for skin products
“Rustic MAKA’s products go beyond today’s standards of natural and pay tribute to the Earth by supporting organic practices and sustainable applications. Our aim is to first and foremost effectively nourish and enhance your body without any toxic ingredients. We use organic ingredients when possible, as we believe they are the best for our bodies. When organic ingredients are not available, we select wild crafted or nature-derived options, without compromising quality and effectiveness. Our products are cruelty-free and vegan certified and tested in the real world on real (and willing!) people who, just like you, are trying to lead a healthy lifestyle.”
This is straight from their wonderfully written website!!
2) They’re family owned
The company is ran by Kasia (the CEO), Monica (co-founder), Alex (marketer and graphic designer), and Anna (the mother who is the “heartbeat” of Rustic Maka).
A fun fact is that “MAKA” was created by using the beginning letter of all four of their names! I thought this was super neat and creative 🙂
They came from a humble beginning and haven’t looked back since..
“This embarrassing problem has been a blessing in disguise. Creating something that worked in tune with my body was the end of a very unhealthy relationship with my conventional antiperspirant and the beginning of something greater than I ever imagined. This unusual journey led me to Rustic MAKA.
I wear many hats throughout the day. I’m the voice when you call customer service, I process your orders, I brainstorm with our demo and sales team. I love every minute of what I do. My day usually starts with getting my boys off to school, processing orders and a chat (or 15) with my sister Monica about what’s on the marketing agenda. I spend the day growing the relationships with our amazing team and working towards one goal – spreading the love for a wholesome life. The day ends with a family dinner, homework, a glass of wine, and sometimes…more work. I don’t mind the after hour grind when everyone is asleep. This is when I get to catch up on paperwork, search for new ingredients for future products or read an interesting article. This is the moment when I get to truly reflect on the day’s accomplishments and the privilege of sharing my passion for natural personal care.”
– Kasia (the stinky sister who started it all)
3) They give back
Instead of keeping all of their profits to themselves, the Rustic Maka team has been giving back to numerous organizations and charities.
They’ve been giving back to ALL of the organizations below!
So, when you’re buying from Rustic Maka, you’re giving your money to people who are helping the environment, the animals, AND people who are in need!
This is one of the reasons I saw a lot of potential in the Rustic Maka team 🙂
No, I don’t have a special coupon to offer you. I’m simply sponsored by Rustic Maka to help promote and grow their brand! So take this blog post and use it as you please.
My goal for this post was to show you my favorite skin care company and to teach you about some of the reasons why I’m supporting them.
And if you have any questions, you can contact them HERE.
I promise you, you won’t regret buying from them 😉
As always, Much Love!!
