Acca Kappa

Keeping your skin, and lips protected from the sun is so important, and finding a lip balm that doesn't taste or feel like there's SPF can be hard. The Acca Kappa lip balm soothes and hydrates with ingredients like aloe vera and jojoba oil while protecting from sun, wind and pollution with SPF 7, Vitamin A and Vitamin C.

Acca Kappa is a four generation, family owned bath and beauty line founded in Italy in 1869. There is a  certain appeal to the simplicity and elegance of the products. And we're drawn even more so the company's deeply rooted family values and homage to traditions. With the Queen of England and Oprah as faithful customers, there's no doubting its quality. 

We love this natural anti-cavity fluoride toothpaste. It has a subtle, but refreshing eucalyptus taste.

We were surprised to learn that toothbrushes, as small as they are create 50 million pounds of waste each year in the US alone. It's so important to be environmentally conscious, and this doesn't mean you have to compromise on style. We're currently on the hunt for green bins that aren't such eye sores like the ones at the local hardware store. When we found these Acca Kappa tooth brushes we were so happy. The biocete toothbrush is made with natural bristles and biodegradable cellulose acetate, a natural substance extracted from cotton. The entire collection including hairbrush, comb, and body brush is available online at anthropologie.com and at Pure Home Couture.
