Leaf People Arnica & Frankincense Soothing Face Cream
Smooth on this silky, fast-absorbing moisturizer, made in Carbondale, to combat aging and red spots as well as dryness. The blend of all-natural ingredients includes locally harvested wild arnica, plant-based hyaluronic acid, turmeric, and other botanicals.
$33–$65, leafpeople.com



Mandara Zen Luxe Oil
Meadowfoam seed oil is the key moisturizer in this pleasingly non-greasy oil for body, bath, and hair from a Boulder company. Made with eight botanicals and 300 milligrams of CBD sourced from domestically grown hemp, it absorbs quickly, and its spa-like scent is addictive.
$90, mandaracbd.com





Antedotum Elixir Firming Serum
Creamier than many serums, this one uses whipped shea butter, liquid crystals, and 500 milligrams of full-spectrum CBD to firm and hydrate skin, help restore collagen, and stave off dryness. Aspen-based Antedotum produces a wonderfully hydrating face oil, too.
$125, antedotum.com





Osmia Naked Body Mousse
A skin quencher with staying power, thanks to ingredients like organic shea butter and jojoba oil, this dense, unscented body cream goes on best when skin is still damp. Carbondale-based Osmia also offers it in scents like rosemary and sandalwood.
$42, osmiaorganics.com 



Osmia Purely Gentle Mud Cleanser
Organic honey, glacial oceanic clay, and marshmallow extract combine in this new product from Osmia to cleanse and soften facial skin without stripping it of necessary oils. (Despite the color, the solution goes on clear.) Don’t start your morning without it.
