happy earth day: it's easy being green

You want to expose your kids to stuff that's good for them--think products that are clean, natural and environmentally friendly. Your one-stop shopping spot: Vert. This Los Angeles-based eco-chic boutique offers high-end chemical-free and organic products for you, your kids and your home. Prompted by her doctor to eliminate chemicals from her surroundings, owner and makeup artist Renata Helfman decided to change her lifestyle and use only green products. Now she shares her philosophy with fellow Angelenos in her hip beauty shop located in Venice, CA. The shop features eco-friendly beauty lines like Naturopathica, Josie Maran Cosmetics and Me & Ro. Among the offerings are several lines for babies, including Epicuren, Coyuchi and Erbaviva. Try Erbaviva's Diaper Cream ($19) with organic echinacea and chamomile to heal and protect, Organic Baby Lip and Cheek Balm ($10) with calendula, lavender and chamomile, and Sunscreen for babies and adults, featuring the highest SPF possible without using synthetic materials.
