Tara Foley’s Follain gets organic right

A tiny South End shop has all the ingredients for healthy skin


In this age of all things organic, Tara Foley's white-tiled shop is just right, just now. She stocks only healthy and environmentally friendly brands of skin, hair, and body products, half a dozen of which are locally produced, and has recently begun offering "Meet the Maker" workshops with brand founders and herbalists. One of the shop's bestsellers is a sheer lotion made with rosemary oil that nourishes dry winter skin and helps relieve stress, thanks to its soothing therapeutic scent. "Rosemary + Salt" body lotion by Earth Tu Face, $38 at Follain, 53 Dartmouth St., Boston, 857-284-7078, www.shopfollain.com
