While kudos to Aveda for finally coming out with an anti-aging skin care product, this is NOT USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC. Aveda's own literature claims the product to be 97% naturally-derived. They do say that some specific ingredients are organic but do not call these specific ingredients out, which are most likely minimal at best. Aveda is a great company, but this an example of green-washing on the part of this uninformed writer. Only products that carry the USDA organic seal can be called USDA-certified organic. This seal means that a at least 95% of ALL ingredients used come from certified-organic sources. Even the source ingredient has to be certified. this is a very high standard which is why so few beauty companies are able to achieve it.

I was getting my hair done and glanced in the mirror and noted my skin looked really dry and saggy. The Aveda rep was at the salon that day so I bought the 3 piece green set. Three weeks later I have noticed firmer, better hydrated and less wrinkled skin. Two thumbs up!

I tried the free sample of the lifting serum...and I was totally impressed. I really had no idea that I needed $50.00 face serums until I tried this stuff. I would have to recommend it.

I have been on green science for about four weeks and I love it! It is great for all skin types especially for normal/dry skin types but it also works on sensitive skin , which I have. I think it is a great product. It also works great with the new green science skin re-newal treatment which is only found in Aveda store's but it is a whole new dimension of a facial series along with the at home skin care regimine. I totally recomend it.
