Socialite Sunday Giveaway!

 I'm leaving for Beverly Hills so I thought it would be fun to giveaway an amazing organic line of facial products that are used by many of the celebs I may encounter.

Company Name:


Founded when and where?

The Terralina Founders

Cousins by marriage, Patricia Bazán Garrubbo and Gina Garrubbo were inspired to create a healthy, superior skincare line when they were each pregnant. They were advised to think more critically of what they put in and on their bodies and not to use some common skincare products. What began as a concern for healthy living, led the cousins to co-create Terralina™.

Please provide a brief description of the company and the inspiration behind it.

Formulation Philosophy

At Terralina™, we believe that what goes onto your skin, goes into your body. We formulated our natural and luxurious line of skincare with your health in mind.

Using advanced formulations of natural ingredients, we bring you the most luxurious and effective skincare, without the use of harsh or harmful ingredients, such as parabens, PEGs, silicone, mineral oils, ethoxylates, glycols, acrylates, or artificial fragrance.

While many synthetic ingredients can be harsh or harmful, even some natural products contain allergens, such as peanut oils and citrus extracts, that may also irritate the skin. Therefore, we don’t believe that a product needs to be either 100% natural or highly synthetic to be effective. Rather, we believe that the best skincare comes from the deliberate and careful combination of natural ingredients and science.

We spent two years formulating our effective, safe and luxurious products using only natural and gentle alternatives to harsh or synthetic ingredients. As a result, all of our products are at least 98.85% natural. Instead of using silicone, we created a natural emulsification process based on the wonders of olive oil. We used botanical extracts and witch hazel instead of detergents and sulfates. The only non-natural part of our formulas is the preservative system, which is necessary to prevent any possible contamination. We are proud to use a gentle preservative system that is an alternative to the harsh alcohol or other controversial synthetic ingredients found in other skin care lines.

Our products are rich in antioxidants, such as Olive Oil, Olive Leaf and White Tea, to combat the damaging effects of free radicals. We use soy based ceramide to help protect the skin’s barrier function and hyaluronic acid and squalane to provide optimal hydration to the skin.

Do you have anything new or upcoming that you would like to share- i.e. website, store, line, etc?

Terralina is expanding its collection to include an eye cream and a larger size of our popular face cleanser.  Our goal is offer Terralina customers convenient travel-size items and specialized products serving the most common skincare needs.  

Any extras and/or fun facts you would like to add about yourself or your company?

Terralina is a favorite amongst international celebrities.  Actor Alicia Silverstone and Supermodel Helena Christensen, who only use natural skincare in their daily regimen, are two of our renowned brand ambassadors for Terralina’s gentle facial cleanser with olive oil and botanical extracts.  Terralina also earned kudos from natural skincare expert Dr. Berson on NBC’s The TODAY Show, which profiled the Terralina exfoliator and its main active ingredient, the olive pit, as a must-have natural skincare item.
