A R Z É– S C A L P  S E R U M Price: $29.00 Nourish hair from root to tip.

A R Z É is the all-natural vegan skincare brand founded by Michelle Gilmore. Her journey into finding organic and non-toxic products began back in 2009 when there were a lot fewer options than today. A pregnancy and cancer diagnosis at the same time was her motivation to look into holistic and wellness remedies. Today, A R Z É offers a collection of natural beauty and wellness products using pure luxe and cruelty-free botanical blends. The eco-friendly brand is sustainable using recyclable glass jars and bottles! I love their heavenly Facial Serum Gels, which sets them apart from most other brands.

It’s skin maintenance that’s accessible for all skin types, naturally revitalizing and nourishing skin and hair for gorgeous results. The brand offers a creative mix of products with organic raw shea butter and signature scents (Hip butter, gap 2, lov u butter) to wow the senses.
