Our Press + Awards
Vegan Health Magazine:
Thank you Vegan Health & Fitness Magazine for honoring our 1000 Roses Floral Toner as the Best Vegan Toner in their May/June issue. You’ll have a hard time putting down this hydrating, soothing and simply intoxicating Cruelty-Free, Non-GMO Project Verified, Alpine Rose Stem Cell toner.
Green living advocate Sophie Uliano discusses the importance of peptides for building and renewing collagen while highlighting our best selling day moisturizer, Super Goji Peptide Perfecting Cream.
Easily style hair with extra shine and body using our Sunflower & Citrus Medium Hold Styling Gel. Formulated with Soy Protein to restore moisture and control static along with Quince Extract to moisturize and reduce the appearance of split ends, creating show-stopping, award-winning looks is a cinch. The proof’s in the pudding: Better Nutrition selected it as the best sulfate-free color safe styling product in their 2015 Best of Natural Beauty Awards.
"Fortify your hair and stimulate growth with
Andalou Naturals Shampoo with Argan Stem Cells for Thinning Hair. Vitamin B complex (biotin, thiamine, pyridoxine, niacin, riboflavin, and panthenol) infuses essential protein and nutrients to invigorate scalp for improved strength, texture, and shine. Argan stem cells improve the longevity of hair follicles. Meadowsweet, an anti-seborrheic, helps balance sebum production, counteract bacteria, and reduce inflammation that contributes to hair loss."
Whole Foods Magazine:
"The delivery system is as integral to the results of a hair product as the ingredients themselves, says Amy McKelvey, brand and communications director for Andalou Naturals, Novato, CA. She says her company’s hair care formulas are designed to reach the inner hair matrix to enrich the hair follicle while also improving the condition of the hair shaft. “If the hair shaft is in good condition, then it’s going to look great and be easy to style,” McKelvey says. In addition to a blend of fruit stem cells, she says argan oil is the go-to ingredient in these formulas to moisturize deeply and minimize split ends. McKelvey also says that biotin can help consumers achieve thicker, fuller hair strands and improved manageability, as it infuses the strands with essential protein.
“Formulating for sensitive skin that is easily irritated, dull, dry, flaky, uneven, blotchy and over-exposed requires a comprehensive approach and a true understanding of the many complexities of the delicate, dry and reactive skin type,” says Stacey Kelly Egide, CEO and founder of Andalou Naturals. Egide says her company’s clinically tested 1000 Roses line for sensitive skin is manufactured to ensure pH and electrolyte balance, and contains five active plant-based complexes designed to work at the cellular level. Egide says the first layer of this formula consists of alpine rose stem cells, which support epidermal regeneration and improve barrier function among other benefits. Next up is the 1000 Roses complex, which contains rosewater, rosehip oil, rose geranium essential oil and rose essential oil to nourish, sooth and protect skin. The Skin Soothing complex features hyaluronic acid, magnolia bark, boswellin extract and date leaf cell extract. Pomegranate oil and pomegranate extract help build collagen and provide antioxidant protection. The last layer contains a proprietary fruit stem cell blend, aloe vera polysaccharides and a BioActive 8 Berry complex. “The beauty of a proper formula is that it transforms sensitive skin into resilient skin,” says Egide."
Clementine Hand Cream
"This cream combines organic and Fair Trade-certified shea butter from Burkina Faso with sea buckthorn and fruit stem cells. One hundred percent of net profits from this product go to Andalou's philanthropic organization, A Path of Light, which promotes women's equality, empowerment, and education worldwide."
Andalou Naturals Luminous Eye Serum helps to brighten your outlook and reduce puffiness with fruit stem cells, bearberry, coffee, and other natural botanicals.

1000 Roses Beautiful Day Cream
"This replenishing day cream features alpine rose stem cells to moisturize and boost skin cell regeneration; more flower power comes from rose water and rose essential oils. Non-GMO Project Verified, too."
Age Defying Shampoo and Conditioner
"This sophisticated, botanical-based brand launched just a few years ago, but the founders have been formulating natural body care products for almost 30 years, and their expertise shows. Andalou's Age Defying Shampoo was designed for men with thinning hair, using regenerative argan fruit stem cells, amino acids, and a vitamin B complex to restore dormant follicles and spark hair growth. A mix of meadowsweet and other antioxidant botanicals help ease scalp inflammation and keep follicle-clogging bacteria at bay."
