Ursa Major is a superior clean beauty brand out of the mountains of Vermont. Since 2010, this husband and wife team have continually improved their formulations to adhere to the emerging science on ingredient safety. At their core, their skincare products have always held to a method of less-is-more. Because of this balanced approach, Ursa Major is now leading the way. Their plant-based formulations are effective and appealing to all genders and skin types.
The brand also prioritizes sustainability. They are a B Certified Corporation, which means they are committed to continual improvement. Ursa Major goes above and beyond by being Certified Plastic Negative. This entails a pledge to offset their impact by removing two plastic bottles from the environment for every one they produce. They are also regularly improving their product packaging. In doing so, they are initiating a crossover to glass, recycled, and recyclable packaging. Finally, Ursa Major sources and manufactures in the USA. This has a strong aftereffect on the reduction of their carbon footprint.
Hello, user and planet friendly.

Try their Forest Alchemy Eye Cream, a supremely nourishing and multi-faceted cream. This features forest-foraged ingredients like Chaga and Tremella mushrooms. The addition of Wild Birch contributes 17 amino acids for supple and hydrated skin. Altogether, this botanical blend helps promote lymphatic drainage to help de-puff the undereye area.
Using their nutritive Golden Hour Recovery Cream- available in regular and travel size. This luxurious and richly restorative cream can be used daily or as a “wrinkle-busting” night cream. With powerhouse ingredients like nourishing sea buckthorn and calming calendula, this reparative cream is great for skin exposed to the elements.
Whenever your skin needs a little pick-me up, try their Bright and Easy 3 Minute Flash Mask. The name says it all, you only need a few minutes for this enzymatic gel-based mask to work its magic.
