Diamonds aren’t the only things that last forever. Per- and polyfluoroalkyl chemicals (PFAS) can take more than a millennium to break down—and are potentially carcinogenic. That’s why Colorado’s Legislature banned the chemicals in 2022. The first phase went into effect in January, and next year, the embargo will expand to include cosmetics and beauty products.

But why wait? There are plenty of Colorado-made, PFAS-free products ready to revamp your skincare routine.

1. Leaf People Arnica & Lemon Verbena Serenity Lotion

Leaf People founder and herbalist Julie Williams hikes nearly an hour up the mountains outside Aspen to harvest the wild arnica for this skin soother ($40). The flowering herb, which has long been used as an anti-inflammatory, creates a lotion that isn’t just hydrating but also ache-minimizing and mind-clearing.

2. Colorado Aromatics Red Rocks Beard Oil

Wiry goatees and thick mutton chops don’t stand a chance against the softening blend of horehound, hops, and yarrow in this beard oil ($15) made by Longmont’s Colorado Aromatics. Vetiver oil also adds a woodsy aroma to the vegan-approved beard-tamer.

3. Black Travel Box Co-Wash Bar

Scented with coconut, citrus, and verbena, this all-in-one shampoo and conditioner ($19) from Denver’s woman- and Black-owned Black Travel Box is ideal for sailing through DIA security: Light yet mighty (one 2.64-ounce bar equals a 16-ounce bottle of suds), Co-Wash gently cleans and conditions locks but won’t leak in your suitcase.

4. Osmia Skincare Balance Facial Serum

Anti-inflammatory thymoquinone from black cumin seed oil pairs with fatty acids, antioxidant extracts, and healing carotenoids in Carbondale-based Osmia Skincare’s herbal facial serum ($50). Apply one pump (or less) after cleansing for a clearer, less oily complexion.
