I have been so blessed to get a huge gift box from Naturopathica! After a month of using these products in 4 different states and major cities (New York City, Miami, Los Angeles and Arizona) I am absolutely thrilled to be able to share these beauty secrets with you! Without them, I have no idea how I would have survived everything from heat waves to frigid cold without totally hating my skin at the end of the day. As a commitment to My Organic Life, I have taken all of the product photos myself.
This concentrated cream combines Black Currant Oil and Hyaluronic Acid to improve elasticity and promote vibrant looking skin.
SKIN TYPE: Age Defense
KEY ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Hyaluronic Acid (HA): a component of the skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF), this naturally occurring polysaccharide is the body’s built-in water magnet. It reinforces the skin’s short and long term moisturization, helps to plump up tissue to restore elasticity and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
HYALURONIC ACID (HA): known for its ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, this ingredient helps the skin to retain moisture
CASSIS (Black Currant Oil): This seed oil is a rich source of Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) and other important polyunsaturated fatty acids Omega-6 and Omega-3, known to soothe and improve skin resilience
VITAMIN E: a powerful antioxidant, this vitamin helps to fight free radical damage
I find this moisturizer essential, and have no idea how I lived without it! My time in New York is normally met with clogged pores, runny noses and skin damage! B vitamins improve the skin’s ability to take up oxygen and help keep the production of sebum at appropriate levels. Application of a Vitamin B Complex to the skin increases resistance to irritation by noxious chemicals and therefore makes this ingredient essential as a “Big City” protective cream. My skin feels absolutely resilient and super quenched!
PLANT STEM CELL SERUM ($48)
Supporting sustainability: 2% of all purchases of Plant Stem Cell Serum will be donated to the National Resources Defense Council.
An ECOCERT certified organic concentrated serum, designed to significantly slow down the aging of cells due to inflammation caused by UVA photodamage and oxidative stress.
SKIN TYPE: Age Defense
PLANT STEM CELLS: Due to recent scientific advancements, Swiss scientists have discovered that these naturoceuticals derived from the wound tissue of plants can improve cell vitality. These concentrated liquid cell cultures are proven to increase collagen synthesis and hydration as well as increase suppleness and elasticity in the skin.
This serum is simply a-MAZING. I use it at night after my epsom soak and my skin feels absolutely transformed in the morning! My skin looks SO bright and clear after using the serum. I feel entirely fortunate to be able to have tried this! The fact that it’s all natural, has NO products that raise a health concern, and smells amazing is just a topping! 🙂
Thank you so much to Naturopathica for their commitment to organic living!
Love & Light
