the hush + dotti difference

Hush + Dotti is the cross roads where a healthy, hippy centric lifestyle meets nontoxic, high performance beauty. Hey – we all want to be healthy, but we also want to have fun along the way. That is where H+D comes in. We infuse fun in our very serious approach to clean beauty. We are the healthy California lifestyle mixed with the no nonsense New York City approach to luxury beauty products. The purity and quality of our products speak for themselves. Carefully hand crafted in small batches, our skin care is medicinal & gently clarifies the complexion. Our makeup is long wearing, well pigmented and delightfully scented with real vanilla bean. We believe in an ageless, safe, cruelty free approach – mind, body and beauty. Proudly founded, located, sourced, & manufactured in the USA. That fact alone makes us indeed a rarity in the beauty industry.

As a professional makeup artist & lifelong health advocate, I know firsthand that Hush + Dotti satisfies a tremendous craving in the beauty industry. Our formulas are as original as we are. Each and every ingredient is used for a specific purpose. Our skin care is rich in powerful, treatment rich essential oils that cleanse, detoxify and hydrate the complexion. Our makeup is durable, devoid of harsh chemicals and gentle enough for all skin types. Once you experience our products, you will see for yourself why we list love as our first ingredient. Caring and quality is at the heart of everything we do.

The beauty industry isn’t regulated by the FDA, but we conduct our business like it is. We don’t hide our ingredient lists or make them so difficult to find that you just give up. Our packaging is simple and recyclable. We do that so we can pack as much magic as we can into every bottle. There are no fillers, no cheap ingredients and no hidden toxins. When we say “Zero Toxins, Zero BS” – we mean it.

natural vs. nontoxic

I have a love/hate relationship with the word natural. It means well. Generally meant to describe something that is derived from nature, it connotes safety making it an easily understood reference. So why do we say nontoxic in our marketing instead of natural? Believe it or not, there is no true definition of the word “natural”. Therefore, clarifying our intentions is important for us in educating our customers. Just because a product says it’s natural doesn’t mean that it’s safe or even remotely good for you. Belladonna is natural. It can also kill you, so distinctions become important when discussing things that are naturally derived. I have heard it said that the word “natural” is the most abused & misused word in the English language. It rings true the more you think about it. All of our ingredients are plant based, ethically sourced and naturally derived. We clearly state that they are nontoxic, so you know that they are completely safe to use with zero misconceptions.

fads, don’t think so

Clean beauty is the future of the beauty industry. There are countless doctors, nutritionists and other healthcare professionals who verify that using nontoxic products is part of having and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The skin, after all is the largest organ of the body. What we put on it has a direct affect on our bodies just like the foods we eat. This is not a trend or a passing fad. This is us being present during a huge shift in consciousness, lifestyle and consumer expectations.

transparency and inclusion

Transparency is a word that gets thrown around a lot lately. Our commitment to transparency is evident in everything we do – from the clarity of our mission to our ingredient listings, where we hide absolutely nothing. If you ask us a question, we will tell you the truth. We stand behind the amazing quality of our products. If there is something you need from us, just ask. We are real people on a real mission to make this world a better place & crafting the best beauty products is how we aim to start. In fact, I am so passionate about our mission & our customers that I answer all specific product questions personally at

Inclusion has been our guiding force from day one. You will only see kindness, truth and humor in our marketing. We see beauty in everything. To celebrate that, our models are real people that we meet in our every day lives. We offer exceptional quality at an extremely fair price point. Honestly, we should be charging WAY more for our products, but we chose to sacrifice profits for the sake of getting our products into the hands of as many people as possible. We truly want everyone to feel safe and at home using our products. That is why are currently in the process of also being certified USDA organic, Kosher, Halal verified and rainforest safe.

We are certified cruelty free by the Leaping Bunny, Cruelty Free International and PETA.
