Natural Selection


It takes a village to do a lot of things, but creating eco-friendly skin products isn’t the first one that comes to mind. But that’s what Quench, a new chemical- and additive-free bath and body line, is committed to doing. Using indigenous ingredients from far-flung locations like Africa, India, and Japan, Quench products are handcrafted by native companies and co-ops, fostering fair trade and bringing the time-tested formulas of unique cultures to previously inaccessible markets in the U.S. Their inaugural collection, produced in a small village in South Africa, consists of organic, vitamin-rich black soap made from plantain skins and unrefined, super-moisturizing shea butter and oil. Just don’t let the reasonable prices and homespun packaging fool you. These products, available at quenchbathandbody.com, are the real deal.
