The Garden of Earthly Delights

by Rona Berg

Garden of Earthly Delights

When New York stylist and colorist Fabian Lliguin, an Ecuadorian of Quechua descent, went searching for the secret to restore life to dry, lackluster hair, he found it—no surprise!—in the Amazonian Rainforest, where tribal women sourced a rich restorative oil called Rahua. Lliguin and his wife, Anna Ayers, launched Amazon Beauty, based on a range of oils and elixirs from the region. It is a sustainable business that partners with women from Waorani, Achuar, Quichua, Quechua and Shuar tribes in the Amazon.

The newest, Elixir Daily Hair Drops with Gardenia Enfleurage, for nourishing hair and scalp, is rich with omega 9s, which rebuild damaged hair, with heady sweet gardenia and palo santo, an uplifting essential oil that smells divine.


Kosmatology’s Lemongrass Face Moisturizer contains carefully selected organic ingredients to treat and prevent acne and rosacea with essential oils of lemongrass, rosemary and lavender. Save 10% with code OSM10.

Protect & Correct

The hottest launch from Pevonia’s muscular Stem Cells Phyto-Elite line, the Intensive Body Corrector, when massaged assiduously into problem areas of the body (hips, thighs, upper arms) after the bath or shower, will help restore firmness and smooth uneven, cellulite-prone skin with coffee seed extract, avocado oil, sea whip extract and more. As close as it comes to a miracle in a jar!


Embrace the elements of the islands while rejuvenating tired muscles with Ola Tropical Apothecary’s Passion Fruit Body Oil. Ola’s Body Oil combines a unique blend of tropical oils and is ideal as a moisturizing oil for body, hair and massage. It is non-greasy and nourishing.

A Hint of Sorbet?

Light and highly absorbent, Hi Q Facial Serum CoQ10, with its pretty orange color and lovely essential oil-based scent, is so delicious, it will remind you of mango or tangerine sorbet. But that’s only one reason why the only product in this new line (so far—an eye serum is launching soon) will become your latest addiction.
