FIELD Botanicals | Augusta, GA
Winner of the 2022 Beauty Independent Beacon Award for Small Retailer
Founder Jennifer Tinsley created FIELD with the vision to provide you with effective, clean beauty products from indie brands. Why indie? Indie, or independent, brands are built on inspiration and love, as well as a desire to educate people on the importance of high quality, effective clean ingredients.
FIELD products are formulated with blends of plant oils, botanical infusions and extracts, plant based additives, and clean synthetics. They consult the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Cosmetics database and the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics Red Listed Chemicals when vetting brands and products—so you’ll never find parabens, phthalates, sulfates, petrochemicals, or silicones in anything they sell. Products also are required to be cruelty free and vegan, which means they don’t carry bee-sourced ingredients, such as beeswax. Lastly, they ensure all brands follow FDA regulations and list all ingredients on their packaging by INCI name and in order of percentage.
