When it comes to looking good and feeling good as we age, the products we use on our skin matter. Many people want to keep their skin looking healthy, but are hesitant to use products with a list of ingredients that they don’t recognize and don’t understand. At Eminence Organic Skin Care, our goal is to help you rediscover simple, all-natural, ancient ingredients to slow aging that have withstood the test of time.
From vegetables to herbs to flowers, everything you need to keep your skin looking young and healthy exists directly in nature, and many can be found on the Eminence Organic Farm in Hungary. These certified organic ingredients are just a small sample of effective ingredients that can be grown organically on farms and in gardens instead of in a lab:
As skin ages, it tends to dry out. Products containing pumpkin can help! The colorful autumn gourds are rich in zinc and vitamin C, which both help to keep skin hydrated and radiant, while firming and tightening skin. While gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin, pumpkin pulp puree contains amino acids, antioxidants, and beta-carotene, which supercharge skin to protect it from outside environmental irritants. For a powerful bi-weekly home treatment or as part of a spa ritual, consider Eminence Organics’ Yam and Pumpkin Enzyme Peel to loosen dead skin cells and reveal tighter, younger-looking skin.
- Stone Crop
This age-defying plant is a hearty, drought-tolerant succulent grown all over Hungary, including our very own Eminence Organic farm. Stone crop, also known as sedum, is a large genus of succulent well-known for its natural hydration qualities–great for combating dry, aging skin. With the addition of blueberry extract, and green tea extract (among other natural ingredients), Eminence Organics’ Stone Crop Serum protects skin from cell damage, reduces pigmentation in sensitive skin, lightens complexion and aids in regeneration–thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles even further.
Did you know bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world? This is most likely due to the fact that it doesn’t need fertilizers, has a robust root system and reaches maturity within 3-5 years–much quicker than most plants and even needs containment to prevent overgrowth. In fact, there are nearly 1,500 species of the plant that can be found all over the world.
Bamboo extract is a powerful product, full of nutrients with a long list of helpful properties: according to a research study, the extract is an effective moisturizer, can help protect the skin from sun damage, and can reduce sunspots and other signs of aging. It also reacts with the skin to boost enzymes which form a defensive wall for cells. With such a varied array of benefits, bamboo-based beauty products should be included as part of a skin care regimen for anyone concerned about aging skin. Try Eminence Organics’ Bamboo Firming Fluid to experience the plant’s beauty properties for yourself: smoother, silkier skin with increased elasticity.
An excellent source of Vitamin C, rhubarb rehydrates skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, one of the most common complaints associated with aging skin. Its properties also help products with rhubarb reduce any redness or signs of skin inflammation. Red on the outside and green on the inside, the ingredient is the star of products like Eminence Organics’ award-winning Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum, which you can use daily to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
A flowering herb native to Europe, comfrey contains a molecule called allantoin, which helps to remove dead skin cells and stimulate new cell growth. This healthy turnover produces the effect of smoother skin, all while moisturizing the skin barrier and protecting it against outside irritation. Take advantage of comfrey’s revitalizing properties with Eminence Organic Skin Care’s Hawthorn Tonique, a customized combination utilizing a host of other natural ingredients including chamomile, marjoram and eucalyptus oil. Together, the ingredients make up a refreshing spray which tones and balances the skin.
- Wild Plum
Wild plums are catching on like wildfire in beauty products, and it’s easy to see why. The fruit is packed with Vitamin C to boost collagen and brighten skin. Plum’s vitamins and minerals also reverse the effects of free radicals in the skin, defending against dark spots and discoloration that often come along with aging. Together with natural lemon extract, Eminence Organic Skin Care’s Wild Plum Tonique uses wild plum juice to increase oxygenation to the cells, resulting in a fresh, vibrant appearance.
- Licorice Root
Licorice root is known across the world for its ability to lighten and brighten skin, reducing a wide range of skin problems from age spots to acne scars. Its properties come from a substance it contains called glabridin, which inhibits the enzymes that can cause discoloration. The result? Products containing licorice root smooth out the skin’s appearance, making skin appear younger and more radiant. For smoother, calmer, and firmer skin, try Eminence Organics’ Bright Skin Licorice Root Booster Serum.
