Skin Wellness:

11 Skin Wellness Strategies From Our Lab

Getting skin in tip-top shape includes cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, and protecting to make sure skin looks and feels its best.

Our application chemists have assembled strategies you can employ to get skin looking and feeling great–all leveraging our ingredients and guide formulations, direct from the Natural Plant Products Applications Lab.

Cleansing

Facial Cleansing Stick

While intended for the face, can also be applied to the hands at home or while on-the-go when no other soap is available. This unique solid cleansing stick has a high oil load of Meadowfoam Seed Oil (MSO) and Daikon Seed Extract (DSE) and gentle surfactants that create lots of dense luxurious lather to cleanse your skin. Upon rinsing, MSO and DSE impart a silky smooth moisturizing feel that isn’t greasy. And, unlike many cleansing products with an alkaline pH that can be harsh on the skin, ours has a lower pH closer to the skin’s, thus gentler.

Exfoliation

Fresh Start Moisturizing Body Scrub

Packed with natural oils and exfoliators, our scrub provides welcome relief to tired, dry, dull skin. Meadowfoam Seed Oil and Daikon Seed Extract leave skin feeling smooth and moisturized yet not greasy. Oat Lipid e, rich in ceramides, locks in moisture while OleoFLEX helps lock oils onto the skin. Vegetable Petrolatum (an all-natural alternative to petrolatum) prevents water loss. Sugar acts as a gentle, natural exfoliator. Oat COM colloidal oatmeal soothes irritated skin.

Day Relief Hand Cream

It has a high percentage of Daikon Seed Extract, which provides great moisturization with quick absorption, and our studies show that DSE can improve skin barrier function. Glycerin acts as a humectant that attracts moisture. Botanically based preservatives include honeysuckle extract and honeysuckle flower extract.

A great stress reliever after a long day can be a hand massage.
