Tata Harper launched her skincare brand with the intention of giving the industry a fresh start. She grew up in Columbia with cabinets filled with the latest body creams and lotions. When her stepfather was diagnosed with cancer, Tata took a closer look at the ingredients in those products. She found that many had potentially harmful chemicals, some even carcinogenic. Her search for replacement products yielded disappointing results so she decided to take things into to her own hands.
“I believe people deserve beauty products that deliver the results they want, without putting their health at risk. As a company we seek to challenge the assumption that ‘natural’ means less effective. I’m passionate about promoting a modern, health-conscious natural beauty lifestyle that’s committed to safety, honesty and sustainability.”
Based in Vermont, Tata Harper Skincare produces small batches of 100% naturally-derived and non-toxic products that are crafted with herbs and flowers cultivated on the company’s organic farm. With a line that includes a range of skincare and makeup, it should come as no surprise that Tata uses these products on a daily basis. Here are some of her personal favorites along with some other beloved beauty products from fellow Credo brands:
Makeup Essentials: “Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tint in Very Sweet. I use it every day for a little flush of color and as a highlighter on my cheekbones. AlsoRMS Beauty mascara.”
Skincare Face: “How can I just pick one? I'd say theTata Harper Regenerating Cleanser, since it gives me a daily glow and is the reason I never wear foundation.”
Toner: “Hydrating Floral Essence, because it contains biocompatible Hyaluronic Acid to give the skin a boost in plumpness and moisture. I love to bring it on the plane to keep my skin hydrated on long flights.”
Skincare Body: “TheTata Harper Revitalizing Body Oil. I love the way it smells and keeps my skin hydrated all day.
Facial Masks: “Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask is my favorite. I use it as a ‘pre-party’ treatment for an instantly radiant complexion, and to minimize pores and reduce redness, before getting ready for a night out.”
Suncare: I useSuntegrity's Unscented Body SPF 30.
Hair: I love theSans Moisture and Protein Infusion 20 Treatment. It leaves my hair so soft and smooth.
Essential Oils: “I wear myTata Harper Love Potion every day, for a little boost in self confidence and self love.”
