As the climate cools in the Northern Hemisphere and winter weather starts to wreak havoc on our hands, Aveda has a range of plant essence-based products to soothe, cleanse and moisturize.

Since 1978, Aveda's vision has been to bring beauty professionals botanical products that would be good for them, their guests, and the Earth and its communities. The founder, Horst Rechelbacher, was ahead of his time in developing ecologically-minded beauty with a conscience, inspired by Indian Ayurvedic medicine, hence the name Aveda.

“We are the earth. We are soil. We are water. We are everything. So go organic if you can. So become a farmer. Grow in your own house. Grow peppermint and make your own tea. Celebrate life.”

- Horst Rechelbacher, founder of Aveda

Today Aveda is owned by the Estee Lauder company and continues to maintain its focus on Ayurvedic principles. Because of their concern for the Earth, Aveda is committed to using organic ingredients and sustainable practices. 


Among its top-selling products are Aveda's Rosemary Mint line, particularly the Rosemary Mint Hand and Body Wash:

Aveda Rosemary Mint Hand and Body Wash has an invigorating aroma with certified organic rosemary and peppermint that awakens the senses. This wash restores skin's balance and provides gentle but thorough cleansing and lets you wash frequently without overdrying.
