BenBella Books, one of the fastest growing publishers in the United States, has acquired FARM TO FACE BEAUTY by authors Amy Galper and Christina Daigneault. Lucas Hunt at Orchard Literary spearheaded the deal.
FARM TO FACE BEAUTY will examine a fast-emerging trend in beauty focusing on the use of non-toxic, natural, and organic ingredients, and will include over fifty recipes for healthy DIY personal care products.
Responding to a growing curiosity about the implications of the products we use on our bodies, FARM TO FACE BEAUTY sets out to expertly teach the "key ingredients" of natural beauty for all aspects of personal care. It will celebrate and support the shift back to nature that is happening in beauty trends now, and consumers' understanding overall that is reconnecting us with plants and the true meaning of beauty.
“Orchard is delighted to announce that BenBella Books, a recognized leader in plant-based titles, will be publishing FARM TO FACE BEAUTY,” explained Lucas Hunt, Director of Orchard Literary. “This book is poised to support a new area of beauty on par with the Farm to Table movement that turns our attention to the importance of local, organic, and sustainable ingredients.”
