Your First Follain? Meet the “Try-Them 20”

Maybe someone told you about us. Or gave you a gift certificate. Or maybe you’re looking for a gift that’s the perfect introduction to the Follain movement. Not only are these gifts all wholesome, nontoxic, and uber-effective, but they’re also good for all skin types and an easy way to get to know what we’re all about. Give them a try! 


Hand + body moisturizers

Why? Everyone loves them, and you can never get enough. But what you slather on skin gets absorbed into it. So it’s wise to skip the toxins.

  1. Apotheke Hand Cream (This is on our conference table; we all grab it during meetings!)
  2. Rica Body Butter
  3. Skincando Combat-Ready Balm
  4. May Lindstrom The Good Stuff
  5. Farmaesthetics Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil (Honey is a powerhouse of healing properties.)

Mood-Lifting Aromatherapy

If you’ve ever gotten a headache from a stranger’s perfume, you know that synthetic fragrance can cause nervous system disorders, allergies and more. Enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy in luxe, nontoxic offerings instead.

  1. Farmaesthetics Dreaming Oil (Near-instant sleep for the stressed out.)
  2. Follain Candle (The clean, herb-y smell of our stores.)

Lip Love

Most lipsticks out there contain lead - which you then ingest (yes, ingest) and absorb into your bloodstream.  So this is the perfect place to start thinking about going nontoxic.


  1. Ilia Lip Trio
  2. Stewart and Claire Mint Julep Lip Scrub
  3. Kari Gran Lip Whip (Some clients keep these in every bag they own!)
  4. French Girl Rose Lip Polish

Body Scrubs

Scrubs are a great two-fer; you can exfoliate your body with the scrubbing sugars, and also shave with the nourishing oils left behind. Conventional scrubs are often heavily fragranced, and that often means there’s a carcinogen there. So safe swaps are in order. (You’ll find they work and smell better, too.)


  1. Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish
  2. French Girl Sea Polish (A new obsession - mysteriously, our founder has not returned the tester!)
  3. Indie Lee Coconut Citrus Body Scrub

Bath Buds

Why? Suds aren’t a good sign. Chemicals in traditional bubble bath are known to cause cancer in animals and considered probable causes of cancer in humans.


  1. Leif Soaking Salts in Lavender (Toxin-pulling salts plus an infusion of stress-reducing lavender)
  2. Pursoma Minerals De Mer
  3. Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Bath Soak (The water gets milky, inflammation gets calmed, and your skin gets super soft.)

Deodorant cream

Why? It’s not sexy, but it’s a great place to start a healthier routine. Some studies have found potential links between deodorant use and breast cancer. It takes some body chemistries a little time to adjust - stick with it!


  1. Meow Meow Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream/lavender
  2. Soapwalla Deodorant Cream (Don’t be afraid, get in there and scoop!)
  3. Ursa Major Hoppin’ Fresh Deodorant Cream
