Yes, you’re in the right section: Although Shiva Rose is a true EcoCelebrity, she joins us this month in Beauty & Health. The 41-year-old actress, designer, mother and writer—she’s written for Vogue, Lucky and the Huffington Post, and recently launched her own awesome website, The Local Rose—truly rocked our world when she confessed her devotion to EcoStiletto and told us she wanted to share her secrets with our readers. Considering she’s a true eco-beauty expert and has the luminous skin, gorgeous hair and perfect smile to prove it, we’re feeling pretty lucky right about now. Part Three of Four.

Dr. Alkaitis Organic Eye Cream is so pure that you can eat it—although I much prefer to dab it around my eyes, morning and night. Renowned research scientist, molecular biologist and ethnopharmacologist Dr. Saulius Alkaitis makes all his skin products himself, and all of them contain biologically active ingredients—and, of course, no synthetic chemicals whatsoever.

His eye cream has an organic aloe vera gel base, and contains wild rose, linden, chamomile, borage oil and virgin cold-pressed organic shea butter, to nurture and refresh the delicate skin around the eyes. And it combats morning tiredness and dark circles beautifully. Now who doesn’t want that?

Shiva Rose is an actress, activist, writer and mother who grew up as organic as it gets in Iran’s rural countryside. Her writing has appeared in Vogue, Lucky and the Huffington Post, among other pubs, and she video blogs for C Magazine. Currently she lives green, collects vintage, raises two beautiful daughters and runs her eco lifestyle website The Local Rose in Los Angeles.
