#EarthScienceNaturals

  1. Aluminum-free is key. We’ve all heard the rumors about aluminum, commonly used in antiperspirant products. Whether or not there’s reason for concern, we still choose not to use it in our deodorants. Aluminum is typically the key active ingredient in antiperspirant, due to its ability to help block sweat ducts and inhibit odor-causing bacteria. Sweating is natural and a necessary process for the body to detoxify, so why prevent it? Allowing your body to sweat can actually help lead to an overall healthier you!
  2. It’s all in the chemistry! Since all of our bodies are different, deodorant effectiveness can vary from person to person. We offer a variety of options to meet most bodies’ needs from powerful Tea Tree-Lavender to lighter Liken-Unscented. Each of our deodorant formulas are pH balanced for most skin types.
  3. Give your body up to 4 weeks to acclimate. When switching to a more natural deodorant, you may notice that you’re sweatier and stinkier at first. Not to worry! Sweating is normal and good for your body, and the smell should subside as soon as your body adjusts.
  4. Plant power is stronger than you think! B.O. (body odor) is caused by bacteria. Less bacteria = less odor. We choose to use plant extracts that naturally fight the growth of bacteria to keep you smelling fresh! Look for ingredients like lichen, calendula, coriander, ginger, tea tree, rosemary and lavender, which are known for their antibacterial and antiseptic properties.
  5. Your body will thank you. Our deodorants are packed with fresh, botanical ingredients found in nature. Feel fresh! Be confident! Make the switch today for no aluminum, no parabens, vegan and always cruelty free.  Find the right scent for you! Choose from Herbal ScentMint RosemaryTea Tree Lavender and Unscented.


You may have seen our Hyaluronic Acid Serum around, so we’re here to answer some FAQ’s and give you the low-down on what makes this bottle an absolute skincare must!

Let’s start with the basics. What exactly is hyaluronic acid? Despite the word “acid” in its name, Hyaluronic Acid is actually quite gentle. Don’t let that fool you, it is one of nature’s most powerful moisturizing ingredients. Hyaluronic Acid has become popular in skincare because one molecule can hold up 1,000 times its weight in water! Our body produces hyaluronic acid naturally in order to maintain moisture. It can be found in all parts of your body including your joints, hair, eyes and nerves, but 50% of your body’s hyaluronic acid is in your skin!

Where do you get hyaluronic acid? For a long time, skincare companies were deriving their hyaluronic acid from animal sources, mainly rooster combs… But we are so not about that! Our hyaluronic acid comes from cultured beets and other vegetable sources. Our serum is 100% vegan and cruelty free!

Why can’t I find hyaluronic acid listed in the ingredients? We choose to use Sodium Hyaluronate, the salt molecule from Hyaluronic Acid, in our products. It is a smaller molecule, which means it may absorb deeper and easier into your skin, for maximum benefits!

Why does it come in a blue bottle? We put a lot of love into creating our serum, and we want to make sure it’s well protected. The blue bottle is to prevent oxidation from occurring, which causes the molecules to lose their hydrating superpowers. Be sure to also store in a cool, dark place- the medicine cabinet in your bathroom is perfect!

Who benefits from hyaluronic acid? You! Whether you have dry skin or oily skin, everyone’s skin could use a hyaluronic acid boost. Our serum works to retain moisture in your skin, which plumps up skin and can even help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven tone. It also helps protect the collagen in your skin, promotes elasticity and can make your skin look firmer and more youthful-looking with each use!

The best part? It’s only 24.99 and you only need a few drops with each use! Get yours here!

Ceramide_Blog

Before you open up a new browser tab to search, “What are ceramides?” stay with us, because we have answers you’ll want to know about including how to pronounce “ceramides” correctly!

Ceramides (cera – sounds like Sarah, mides – rhymes with hides) are fatty acids found in our skin and hair. A notable duty that ceramides have is helping to form a protective barrier for our bodies. Our natural ceramides deplete as we age allowing for vital moisture to escape and without a way for our body to regenerate those cells, we loose vital moisture. Fortunately, applying plant-based ceramides can be a great solution.

This is where our new Ceramide Care® hair care collection shines. By harnessing the power of rice-derived ceramides in each of our formulas, every hair strand is coated to lock in moisture and protect the strand’s outer layer that can flake and become brittle as it ages. The result is softer, smoother, more flexible hair that looks and feels healthier.

Our Ceramide Care Curl & Frizz Control, Volumizing, Clarifying, and Fragrance Free formulas are color safe, sulfate free, 100% vegan, cruelty free, and ready to give you the best hair of your life. Power-packed with all the ingredients you want and none you don’t, Ceramide Care is specially formulated to help you have the healthiest hair yet. Snag a couple bottles of Ceramide Care now 25% off through April 4th exclusively on our website and get ready to love your hair everyday!

Skincare Decoded

With so many skincare products on the market, it’s often difficult to know when and how to use them for maximum benefits. Figuring out whether serums go under or over your moisturizer doesn’t need to be complicated. We put together a step-by-step guide for normal to dry skin types that includes some of our favorite products.

Step 1 – Makeup Remover: Start by removing any makeup with a mild, non-irritating makeup removing solution and a cotton round. Our Chamomile & Green Tea Eye Makeup Remover gently dissolves stubborn mascara without tugging at delicate skin or leaving any residue behind.

Step 2 – Cleanser: Next, dampen face and gently massage a cleanser onto skin with clean hands or a washcloth. For a decadent and silky cleansing experience, try our Active Age Defense Whipped Cream Cleanser made with kukui and macadamia nut oils to create a luxurious velvety lather. Massage in a circular motion and rinse with warm water.

Step 3 – Toner: (Toning is an optional step, but beneficial and is often overlooked.) After patting skin dry, saturate a cotton round with an alcohol-free toner, like our Aloe Vera Complexion Toner & Freshener, to normalize your skin to its natural balance. Gently glide toner over face and neck. It prepares the skin to be more receptive to new sources of moisture and minimizes pores.

Step 4 – Serum: Once toning is complete, a small amount of serum can be dropped onto a fingertip to smooth gently into skin. Face, neck, and specific areas that need extra plumping and hydrating benefit from our Active Age Defense Maximum Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making skin feel fresher, firmer, and more youthful-looking with each use.

Step 5 – Eye Cream: After serum has been applied, you’re ready for your moisturizers. Start with a gentle but effective eye cream, like the Active Age Defense i-cream, suitable for use under makeup. Our i-cream adds radiance to tired eyes, softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as reducing puffiness and dark circles.

Step 6 – Daytime Moisturizer & Sun Protection: A moisturizer with SPF is highly recommended to defend against harmful UVA and UVB rays daily. The Active Age Defense Protective Day Cream with natural minerals provides spf 30 protection with just a little amount of product.

Step 7 – Nighttime Moisturizer: Add long-lasting hydration to promote luminous tone and texture. At night, an overnight formula like our Active Age Defense Fruit Actives Perfecting Lotion works hard exfoliating  and rejuvenating for that fresh morning glow.

Extra Steps: A skin masque, like our Papaya-Glycolic Radiant Skin Masque, can be used once a week to gently loosen dull skin cells, clear pores, and polish away impurities. Additionally, an exfoliator, like our Apricot Gentle Facial Scrub, can promote the development of new skin cells and leave skin soft and smooth when used one to two times a week.

Although these are our recommendations, it is important to remember that each person has different needs that may require a slight variation. Experimenting with different products and steps can help develop your perfect skincare routine.  Contact us for recommendations.
