For a Holistic Lifestyle, Go to Aisle 2

Shortly after New York Fashion Week , I stood with my umbrella dripping on the concrete floor of Whole Body, the health and beauty department of the Whole Foods Market in Chelsea. After days of Champagne and late nights, the thought of rejuvenating with natural beauty products had conjured visions of “Sound of Music” bliss, but the aisles were jammed with more labels and products than I could easily navigate.

There were exotic ingredients (Kombucha enzyme exfoliating peel, nail polish remover made from soybean oil and lavender, Goji peptide perfecting cream) from far-flung locales (Egyptian Magic skin cream, Hawaiian shampoo, South African Marula oil). I zoomed in on shea butters sourced from Togo by Alaffia, a company that has gained a following for its yellow-labeled Authentic African Black Soap. Some of its products smelled like peppermint and others of coconut, and virtually all conjured sunny vacations. Here, every day is Earth Day .
