Three new L.A. beauty launches offer a quick and effective path to looking fresh without harmful chemicals.

The beloved nontoxic nail salon has opened a second L.A. location on Fairfax near Melrose. The sunny space—filled with palm-tree motifs and pops of neon—features a menu full of luxurious services. Opt for the Luxe Coat pedicure, which includes an essential-oil foot soak and an exfoliating sugar scrub. Chic nails with no harmful chemicals? We’re in! 

This high-end natural skincare line has come out with a new Green Ceremony cleanser. The brand’s French-born, L.A.-based founder, Valerie Grandury, was inspired to create the powder-to-foam matcha, spirulina, aloe vera and honey cleanser after attending a tea ceremony in Kyoto, Japan. She incorporated principles of the ceremony into the cleansing ritual, which includes activating the powder in a small bowl and facial massage. 

Ranavat Botanics
New L.A.-based, ayurveda-inspired beauty line Ranavat Botanics is launching with six USDA-certified organic powder masks and facial sprays. The antioxidant-,vitamin- and mineral-rich Kiss of Royal Tea mask rejuvenates, while the saffron- and turmeric-infused Flawless Veil version works to create an even complexion; jasmine, lavender and eucalyptus “Toniques,” as founder Michelle Ranavat dubs them, subsequently hydrate, detoxify and illuminate the skin.
