Keep it local with these epic epidermal products from Arizona-based beauty and skin-care companies
Worried about pulverized rodents in your face cream? Not a possibility with 100% vegan, melt-proof foundation ($44) from Valley-based makeup guru Annie Mayo.
Advanced Mineral Makeup
“Weightless Protection” Moisturizer/Sunblock
You think we’d entrust our Arizona-sized SPF needs to some out-of-state brand? UV course not. Scottsdale-based PCA Skin recommends this lotion ($30) for oily or breakout-prone skin.

Body Butter & Sugar Scrub
Down in AZ wine country, Willcox-based Truly Organic makes a full-body exfoliating Sugar Scrub ($17) and a skin-activated Body Butter ($14). A line of hair-care products is due next year.
Prickly Pear Lip Balm
The prickly pear is Arizona’s answer to the soy bean. You can eat it, drink it, squirt some into your coffee – or use it to relieve dry, sun-worn lips. This SPF-15 balm ($3.50) from Arizona Sun is the locavorian answer to Chapstick.
Mineral Makeup by Roxanna
Roxana Cooney’s natural skin care products include gluten-free Lip Glace ($20.99), anti-inflammatory Under Cover concealer ($26.99) and light-refracting Pressed Mineral foundation ($38.99).

Olive Oil Shaving Foam
And you thought EVOO was only good for sautéing green beans. This sodium lauryl sulfate-free shaving aid ($8) is perfect for organic-minded males. Just apply to the face, shave and marvel at the smoothness. Pesto! Er, we mean, presto.
