10 Scary-Good Ingredients We Love

Don’t get spooked by these scary looking ingredients! Read on and discover just how pampering they really are.

CHARCOAL

Charcoal acts like a magnet, attracting dirt and impurities to its surface. Charcoal can hold up to 2,000 times its weight in impurities, making it a great deep cleanser, especially for oily skin. Its slight grittiness can act as an exfoliant, like in Whole Lave Love™ Volcanic Ash Exfoliator, which tackles dry spots and uneven areas on the face for a smoother complexion.

 

KELP

Kelp is rich in iodine and minerals, as well as antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E. It helps soften skin and is often used in anti-aging products because it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by hydrating and rejuvenating for a more youthful complexion. We combined it with moringa oil and micronized pearl powder in Defiant Naked Youth™ Serum.

 

MILK THISTLE

Milk thistle extract is known to be antioxidant-rich, cleansing, skin-conditioning, and hydrating. Its occlusive qualities allow skin to stay moisturized while creating a buffer between skin's surface and environmental stressors, promoting smooth, supple, radiant skin in Fresh, Creamy Milk™ Body Butter with a creamy shea base.

 

SILT

Silt helps soothe and soften dry, uneven skin and is rich in minerals including calcium, sodium, chloride, magnesium, and potassium. It can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and cellulite for a rejuvenated and youthful looking complexion. Paired with charcoal in The Stripper™ Body Mask, it helps detoxify even the grimiest skin.

 

IRISH MOSS

Pure Irish moss flakes are rich in micronutrients, minerals, and moisture to rehydrate and combat dry skin with moisture-locking protection that lasts. You can find moss in spa-like Moss Be Love™ Face Mask along with nutrient-rich ingredients like kale, kiwi fruit, apples, chlorella, and spinach to deliver moisture and vitamins to quench parched skin. 

 

KALE

Kale is known to offer a myriad of internal benefits, but did you know it also does wonders for skin? Packed with health-promoting minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants, kale helps to tighten the appearance of skin and help prevent fine lines and wrinkles while keeping skin hydrated. We love it in Right Back At Ya™ Two-in-One Cleansing Clay Face Wash and Mask and Moss Be Love™ Face Mask.

 

BLACK TEA KOMBUCHA

Black tea kombucha is a fermented black tea rich in antioxidants and probiotics to help fight off invaders. It helps maintain the delicate harmony of friendly bacteria, promoting a more balanced, stronger, healthy, hydrated, and less sensitive complexion. You can find it in Impress Me™ Probiotic Pressed Serum.

 

SILVER EAR MUSHROOM

Silver ear mushroom, also known as the beauty mushroom, helps improve skin softness and delivers intensive hydration to skin by binding moisture to its surface. In ancient times silver ear mushroom was only reserved for royalty, ruling family members, or for wealthy individuals who could afford this highly valued superfood. Incorporate it into your beauty routine in super charged Hold Me™ Illuminating Primer.

 

BLUE-GREEN ALGAE

This super-hydrating ingredient helps lift and tighten skin for a firmer appearance. Blue-green algae is a great source of antioxidants and instantly boosts skin moisture. Try it for yourself in Rebound™ Face Mask For Men

 

FERMENTED HONEY

Fermented honey is rich in gluconic acid that promotes skin renewal. It is also a strong humectant that draws moisture into skin to keep it soothed, conditioned, and soft. In Buzz Peel™ Skin Resurfacing Body Peel the fermented honey acts like glue, catching dead skin cells off the surface.
