We love these good-for-your-skin ingredients so much we couldn’t resist talking about them! Check out the natural (and sometimes delicious) ingredients you could be using to get glowing, beautiful skin!
Strawberries are a natural source of Salicylic Acid, which helps to fight acne and help purify the skin. Moreover, this delicious berry is rich in antioxidants such as Vitamin C, which help fight free radicals.
Oranges are known for their high Vitamin C content, which helps prevent free radical damage, and is a naturally refreshing ingredient.
Cucumber possesses mild soothing and cooling properties, which is why its benefits are harnessed in a number of our products: Cucumber Cleansing Lotion, Cucumber Cream Soap, Cucumber Makeup Remover Cream, Cucumber Tonic Mask, Special Cucumber Lotion
Glycolic Acid, a superstar alpha hydroxy acid made from sugar cane, is a chemical exfoliant that encourages resurfaced, clearer skin.
Peptides are a relatively new breakthrough in the skin care industry and we’ve harnessed their power in our Peptide Renewal Cream and Peptide Renewal Serum, to help encourage collagen production, thereby promoting a younger looking complexion!
Papaya enzymes possess mild exfoliating properties as they help to gently dissolve or loosen dead skin cells.
Packed with vitamins and minerals, seaweed is an ingredient that nourishes the skin to aid in protecting it from harsh environmental elements found in air and water.
Touted for its calming properties, Chamomile (or Azulene) helps to calm and soothe the skin.
Aloe Vera helps soothe the skin and has anti-inflammatory benefits to help heal abrasions and burns.
Olive Oil is an emollient ingredient to help soften and nourish the skin without clogging the pores.
Ceramides are the ‘glue’ that binds skin cells together and when formulated in skin care, help to lock moisture in the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is a substance that is found within skin tissue. In skin care, this powerhouse humectant helps to attract moisture and bind it into the skin.
Products containing this ingredient: Hyaluronic Day Cream, Hyaluronic Emulsion with Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Eye Cream, Hyaluronic Moisturizer SPF 15, Hydrating Moisturizer w/ Biocare & Hyaluronic Acid
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps prevent free radical damage. Due to its brightening capabilities, Vitamin C is harnessed in skin care products to help promote a radiant complexion.
Rose Hips Oil
Rose Hips Oil is an underrated ingredient that deserves a bit more of a spotlight. It is nourishing oil that not only helps to soften the skin, but it is also naturally high in the antioxidant Vitamin C.
Collagen is a protein that is naturally a part of our skin cells that is responsible for firming and plumping the skin.

There’s nothing worse than showing up to a party empty-handed. Holiday parties carry with them an extra expectation- it’s likely your host will give you a small gift as part of the festivities. And if you’re staying as a guest in someone’s home, you absolutely must provide a little gift (no exceptions!).
What could be cuter than a little skin care gift set to give your host or hostess? You can either pick out a pre-selected gift set from us OR put together a cute little package yourself. We’ve put together a few smart sets to help you get started! Each item is sold separately, and indecisiveness may occur since all the sets are so sweet! (We warned you.)
Perfect for someone going away on a sunny vacation this winter; an added loofah would be much appreciated.
