What Natural Skin Care Ingredients Are Most Effective?

The ingredients we choose are well-researched and time-tested to be the most effective natural solutions for each skin type – be it the right cleansing agent for oily skin, rejuvenating for aging skin, moisturizing for dry skin, we’ve got you covered. Take a look at some of our ingredients and why we chose them for each skin type:

Anti-Aging Ingredients

We may have yet to find the “fountain of youth” but we think we have come close with our anti-aging products. We combine some of Earth’s most regenerative materials to restore moisture, gently cleanse, and encourage graceful aging; here are just a few of our highly effective anti-aging ingredients, and what they do

Jojoba and Coconut Oil – These ultra-moisturizing oils help your body store water beneath the skin’s surface, smoothing the appearance of lines and wrinkles from the inside out.

Pomegranate and Sunflower Seed Oil- These oils are high in antioxidants and vitamins, which can improve the look of skin texture.

Goji Berries-  Goji berries have long been known for their powerful anti-aging properties. They are packed with minerals, amino acids, vitamin C, carotenoids, and polysaccharides – which firm, tighten, and improve hydration, all while remaining gentle and non-irritating.

Plantago- This extract is one of the most beautifying and moisturizing, and is known for having high antioxidants – leaving your skin looking fuller, more supple, and hydrated.

Rose distillate and cucumber distillate- Rose and cucumber distillates are soothing and calming to the skin – reducing the appearance of temporary redness and fine lines.  

Ingredients for Oily Skin

Oily skin can be tricky. It needs balancing ingredients with both strengths to remove excess oil and gentleness to not cause irritation. These are some of our top oily skin ingredients;

Witch Hazel – A commonly known astringent, cleanses the skin of excess oil without stripping the skin’s protective barrier. Witch hazel also has calming properties, reducing the appearance of temporary redness and beautifying the skin’s general appearance.

Neem- A cleansing, non-comedogenic oil that not only tightens skin, helps to reduce the appearance of temporary, but also helps with clogged pores and impurities.

Rosemary Distillate- This herbal distillate naturally cleanses impurities and is full of antioxidants.  Great for shine control and oil balancing, rosemary refreshes and clarifies.

White Willow Bark- Contains natural hydroxy acids that cleanse and gently exfoliate – reducing fine lines and clogged pores. Like many other plant extracts, willow bark contains powerful antioxidants that help protect the skin from environmental damage. White willow bark also contains salicin, which can help improve the appearance of aging skin.

Ingredients for Normal/Combination Skin

Just as dry/aging skin and oily skin need special care, normal/combination skin needs love too. Balanced, non-drying, non-irritating ingredients are the core of this product type;

Aloe Vera- Aloe is a traditional herbal medicine, noted for its magical properties in Ancient Greek, Egyptian, Roman, Chinese and Indian writing, and with good reason. Today’s science tells us that aloe has almost 20 amino acids; minerals and enzymes – all of which are beneficial to skin. It is useful for both dry and oily/combination skin, as it is a great hydrator without being greasy or heavy. Aloe is also cleansing while soothing and cooling, and perfect for after a day outdoors.

Calendula- Another herb with a long history of use as a medicine, calendula has historically been used internally to calm upset stomachs, menstrual cramps, and general immune support. Calendula is a gentle and soothing moisturizer, gentle enough to soothe dryness on baby's delicate skin. It is full of antioxidants, beautifying and maintaining skin’s youthful appearance. The calendula flowers contain carotenoids, which can help soothe and protect skin from environmental stress.

Grapeseed oil- A light oil that is high in rejuvenating vitamin E, grapeseed oil is perfect for combination (and oily) skin. Grapeseed oil is also high in linoleic acid, which can help reduce clogged pores.
