Organic ingredients and sustainable practices are dialed into Northern California's DNA, making it a natural home for Earth Tu Face. When creating the line, Earth Tu Face founder, Sarah Buscho, took inspiration from the Slow Food and Farm to Table Movements, lead by Alice Waters of Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California.
