Over the past decade, Tata Harper’s eponymous beauty line has captured cult status—a rare achievement for a 100% natural, nontoxic label. The Barranquilla-born founder celebrates her 46th birthday this week, and is celebrating in part by offering Vogue exclusive first access to a sitewide sale, featuring 25% off of purchases over $100 with code VOGUExTATA. “I believe that our products have opened the eyes of so many people,” says Harper of creating safe formulations with a moral compass. “Whether it’s our ingredients or our packaging, we work with vendors that are committed to fair trade, protecting workers, supporting local communities, sustainability, and environmentally responsible practices,” she shares.

One of the first to define the “farm-to-face” clean beauty category, Harper embraces growth that comes naturally. “Since we launched, all of our celebrity endorsements have been organic,” she says. There’s Tracee Ellis Ross (loves the Be True lip treatment), Gigi Hadid (created a “New Mom Self-Care Routine” from the Nourishing Oil Cleanser, Hydrating Floral Essence, and Revitalizing Body Oil), and Hailey Bieber (starts every morning with the Hydrating Floral Mask), all of whom have shared their favorites via social media and beyond. “They tried our products and fell in love with them,” says Harper, who takes her non-celeb customer feedback just as seriously. “We always take their suggestions into consideration when working on new product formulations and launches.” Last April, the brand listened to consumers and launched its first refillable product, a Water Lock Moisturizer. Harper plans to extend this range: “While sustainability is a moving target, I feel like the future of sustainability for us is to end single use products,” she says.

For now, products are in “infinitely recyclable” glass, and ingredients are upcycled when possible. The Superkind Softening Cleanser and Fortifying Moisturizer feature maracuja seed oil created by distilling Peruvian passion fruit seeds from the local food industry. “The seeds have been historically discarded until now,” Harper shares. It’s another feather in her botanical-fairy-godmother cap. “Our products offer a sensorial experience—you’re smelling nature,” says Harper. “It’s like a bouquet of flowers. It just puts you in a good mood.”

Below, the clean beauty queen guides Vogue through a few bestsellers, and shop first access to her birthday sale with code VOGUExTATA.

For Skincare-First Makeup:

Tata Harper Vitamin-Infused Cream Blush

“This ultra-creamy formula melts onto skin for the perfect touch of flush while helping defend against environmental aggressors,” says Harper. Sheer payoff works on cheeks, lips, and lids for do-it-all cream color.

For the Super Sensitive: 

Tata Harper Superkind Fortifying Moisturizer

“This new collection does not include over 75 common triggers or essential oils,” says Harper of formulating the moisturizer with ultra-hydrating polysaccharides, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants designed to defend against future skin stress.

For a Daily Exfoliant:

Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser

The Regenerative cleanser is one that Harper considers “good for all skin types, and a great place to start if you’re new to the brand.” With double exfoliation (combining apricot microspheres with beta hydroxy acids) it’s able to “really show you the power of our formulations, while giving you a luxury experience.”

For a 15-Minute Glow Routine:

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask

“The Resurfacing Mask was one of the first products we launched, it’s our award-winning bestseller, and one of my personal favorites,” says Harper. With BHAs derived from white willow bark and pomegranate, “it removes dead skin cells and buildup and leaves you with fresh, glowing skin in just 15 minutes.”

For a Transformative Night Cap:

“Crème Riche is another must-have for me that’s a best seller, it’s our richest moisturizer that feels like a velvety cream,” says Harper. “I use it every night as the last step of my routine. It’s packed with antioxidants and hydrators to intensely moisturize the skin and support the skin barrier.”

For Hardcore Results:

“Our hardcore skincare clients have made Elixir Vitae one of our best seller products,” says Harper. The recipe features “72 ingredients that target deep wrinkles and loss of volume to restore youth and plumpness to the skin.”

For a Bestseller Sampler Platter:

Tata Harper Fresh Skin Kit

“Our discovery sets are always great if you’re looking to start up a new skin-care routine,” Harper shares of the hand-picked assortment of bestsellers like Regenerating and Clarifying cleansers, Resurfacing Mask, Hydrating Floral Essence, and Water-Lock Moisturizer.

For a Refillable Future:

Tata Harper Water-Lock Moisturizer

This silicone-free formula traps hydration with macro hyaluronic acid, and comes with a planet-first plan. “While sustainability is a moving target, I feel like the future of sustainability for us is to end single-use products,” says Harper. “We launched our first refillable product, Water Lock Moisturizer, in April 2020, but plan to extend this in the future.”
