One company that I'd like to introduce this whole community to is Peacock Apothecary. Created in Los Angeles by Samantha Feld and Caitlyn Montgomery in 2012 on a mission to craft handmade-to-order, botanical-based products sans ANYTHING toxic.
In true apothecary form, they guarantee their products DO NOT contain: synthetic preservatives or stabilizers, paragons, synthetic perfumes, alcohol, fillers, chemicals or dyes. Instead, the magic that you will find in each of these small-batch, handcrafted potions are: plant based, locally sourced essential oils from Ojai, flower essences, dried herbs & flowers, hydrosols, beeswax, and non-gmo vitamin E.
Two products especially worth noting are the Coconut Milk Cleanser for doing the trick in way of removing makeup, and keeping your face moisturized (doesn't strip your natural oils), while leaving it clean. The lavender and basil essential oils certainly leave one smelling divine after a wash! My second favorite is the Herbal Face Serum which is packed with topical fatty acids. It eases inflammation and irritation while providing solid hydration.
If there is one local apothecary worth supporting for quality, consciousness and love, look no further.
