This week’s clean skincare spotlight is Ongaro Beauty. Ongaro is an affordable, organic, non-toxic skincare and haircare brand that is made right here in the USA.
ABOUT ONGARO BEAUTY
Ongaro Beauty was founded by a mother and daughter in Texas after a life-threatening diagnosis of melanoma skin cancer. During their research to determine the cause they learned that many of the products they were using contained toxic ingredients that are harmful when absorbed into the skin and some were even linked to cancer. They were shocked to learn the FDA didn’t regulate the personal care industry and that many large beauty manufacturers still included ingredients they know are harmful.
They were determined to replace their products with healthy choices, but found limited, expensive options. When they learned that one of the largest cosmetic labs was located nearby, they began working with their chemists to develop a new line of healthy personal care products. During their research, they learned about several new break-through ingredients that produced amazing results and included them in all of their products.
Their ultimate mission is to provide healthy personal care products that produce results you can see and feel at reasonable prices.

MY FAVORITE PRODUCTS
Complete All-In-One Skincare Treatment
This skin treatment contains 14 active ingredients that work together to transform, protect and repair your skin. It addresses ALL 7 signs of aging skin including: dry/dull skin, fine lines and wrinkles, radiance and luminosity, uneven skin tone, dark spots, elasticity and firmness, and enlarged pores.
This product is THE ultimate multi-tasker! It’s perfect for anyone who wants clean, chemical-free skincare but doesn’t have the time, energy or money to use a bunch of different products. While it is on the pricier side, it combines several products into one and will ultimately save you money, time and counter space. Even better, you can apply makeup immediately afterwards! Because really, who has extra time in the morning?
My Thoughts: Before using this product I had a fairly robust regimen of 3-6 products every morning and night. After using this skin treatment for several weeks, I can honestly say that I didn’t feel like my skin was missing anything. My skin was clear, bright, smooth and hydrated. I will most definitely be sticking with it!
Probiotic Eye Creme with Vitamin A & C
This luxurious eye crème is light and fast absorbing and made exclusively for the eye area. In addition to three powerful active ingredients, it includes Vitamin A, C, and E in addition to Hyaluronic Acid to accelerate skin cell renewal and boost collagen production for a more youthful appearance. It helps to erase fine lines and wrinkles, reduce dark circles and puffiness, and visibly uplifts and firms the skin.
My Thoughts: I love the consistency of this eye cream. It goes on smooth, absorbs well and just a little bit goes a long way. Just this one tube should last several months. I’ve only been using for a few weeks, but I am so excited to see how my eye area continues to improve!
