It’s fall which means… apple picking, apple cider, apple pie, apple everything! We have just one more to add to the list this year, and that’s apple in skincare.

This delicious and healthy fruit is surprisingly just as delectable to put on your face as it is to eat! Apples are known to be packed with antioxidants, making them super nutritious, but did you know that these antioxidants have a ton of benefits for your skin like helping fight toxins and neutralizing free radicals? By fighting free radicals from the environment, it can actually help promote younger-looking skin. Try our Cellagen Renewal Serum, which blends apple extract and hyaluronic acid for a fresher, youthful glow!

Apple in the form of apple cider vinegar has natural astringent properties, which makes it a terrific ingredient to help cleanse your skin. It’s a key ingredient in our Clarifying Herbal Astringent which can help tighten pores, remove the last traces of cleanser and makeup, and decrease sebum flow to dry out oily skin. Apple cider vinegar has even been known to assist the treatment of acne.

But, our all-time favorite benefit of apple extract this time of year is that it moisturizes and helps soften skin. As the weather gets colder, our skin gets drier, and could use some added hydration! Our Apricot Night Cream was specifically formulated for extra dry skin using a soothing blend of plant-based moisturizers like apple extract, sweet almond oil and apricot kernel oil. Need a moisturizing boost for tired eyes? Try our Azulene Eye Cream that contains apple extract, macadamia and jojoba oil.

Get the most out of your favorite fall ingredient, and feed your skin with some apple love this season!

  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.
