The Buys: Jurlique's Purely White Skin Brightening line, which includes a Day Cream ($45) and a Night Treatment ($48), zaps spots and pigmentation with Kakadu plum extract and citrus unshiu peel extract.
The Source: The company's 153-acre certified biodynamic farm in South Australia's Adelaide Hills grows organic rose, chamomile, and lavender, which are blended into a base for all the brand's products. Marquee ingredients not grown on-site like Kakadu plum come from nearby growers, purchased at a fair market price.
Feel-Good Factor: Composting and a revegetation project make the Jurlique farm an eco all-star. We also love how organic garlic planted between rose bushes fends off pests.
