Age Naturally, Age Beautifully

Posted by

Here at skinnyskinny organics, we're not about anti-aging. We're into something we like to call sage-ing, that is to embrace your age and to continue growing with the knowledge that comes with it. Long gone are the days of covering your face in products filled with beauty stealing toxins, and even worse, neglecting to remove them at the end of the day and letting them soak into your pores. None of us want to look back on the days of harsh face washes (before we found The Cleanser), or when the word toner referred to something filled with alcohol that burned your skin.

                                    

Now, we're not saying you have to embrace every fine line, we're just saying that with age comes a knowledge and wisdom that allows you to become your most beautiful self. You're not going to just throw any old cream or oil on your face, you want to #knowyouringredients, for skin that is radiant and healthy at any age.

With sage-ing, you grow past the trends and want something that is effective, something that is skinny of all the fillers. And just a note, don't think you have to be a specific age to start nurturing and embracing your beauty, it happens at a different time for everyone.

We love all of our Organic Skin Serums equally, but there is definitely something special about the combination of ingredients in our m/a Organic Skin Serum that encourages plumpness, radiance, and clear skin at any age. While the label says for mature and aging skin, you can think of this as a sage-ing serum that is highly effective, with only the highest quality certified organic ingredients.

And because we know you only want the best, we're going to break down just what it is that makes this serum so special.


Oils (all certified organic)

Argan Oil

Avocado Oil

Babassu Oil: high in Lauric Acid, which means that it is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. High in anti-oxidants. Balances skin while removing surface impurities.

Baobab Oil: contains vitamins A, D, E and F. Vitamins A and F are actively involved in the rejuvenation and renewal of cell membranes, while vitamin E is a superior antioxidant, which helps to fight aging.

Castor Oil

Extra-Virgin Pumpkin Seed Oil: Increases firmness. High in anti-oxidants. Natural AHA encourages cell turnover.

Hemp Seed Oil

Meadowfoam Oil: forms a lightweight occlusive layer on the skin that minimizes moisture loss.

Peach Kernel Oil: rich vitamins A and E as well as a variety of B-group vitamins. Vitamin E is particularly beneficial as an antioxidant, eliminating free radicals.

Pomegranate Seed Oil: moisturizing and nourishing oil containing over 60% punicic acid which gives the oil anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties

Red Raspberry Seed Oil

Sunflower Seed Oil: rich in vitamins A, C, D and E and healthy carotenoids and waxes which form a protective barrier on the skin. These antioxidants regenerate skin cells


Extracts (all certified organic) 

Aloe

Camu Camu: Extraordinarily high Vitamin C content. Brightens skin. Boosts collagen production.

Chaga Mushrooms: has the highest level of superoxide dismutase or (SOD) detected in any food or herb in the world. SOD is an enzyme that repairs cells and reduces the damage done to them by free radicals in the body. SOD is found in both the dermis and the epidermis, and is key to the production of healthy skin-building cells.


Chrysanthemum: stimulates microcirculation, which aids in oxygen exchange. Natural astringent and skin revitalizer. Helps reduce redness. Enhances moisture barrier repair, soothes/softens skin. Strong antioxidant benefits. Mild skin brightening.

Echinacea: improves skin hydration and reduces wrinkles. Helps to prevent damage to collagen from free radicals.

Holy Basil Krishna: Antiseptic and purifying. Antibacterial. Helps to reduce the size of pores.

Kudzu Root: Improves skin tone and complexion. Stimulates epidermis, helping to tone and firm skin.

Maca: helps to reduce the effects of ageing, and gives new strength to the skin. Targets the enzymes that destroy the connectors between healthy cells.

Marshmallow Root

Red Clover Blossoms: contains an array of vitamins and trace minerals. Acts as a mild phytoestrogen and helps to minimize effects of menopause on skin.

Rosehips


Essential Oils

Carrot Seed: high in beta-carotene vitamins (B,C,D,E), minerals, provitamin A and EFA's

Cistus: significant astringent activity for toning the skin.

Cocoa: extremely high in anti-oxidants. Helps to stimulate the skin.

Coffee

Lavender

Muhuhu

Rose: helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Mild astringent action is effective in reducing and fading broken capillaries. Reduces redness.

Ylang-Ylang



Still want more? Here's a full skin regimen fit for even the pickiest sage-ing skin: Start with our incredibly gentle, yet deep cleaning The Cleanser. After rinsing your face, pat it dry, and then mist one of our Organic Toners in a sweeping motion across your face and neck. After giving the toner a moment to soak in, feel free to use the Organic Daily Moisture and Organic Anti-Acne Treatment as needed if you are having a breakout or dry spots. And then finish off with the m/a Organic Skin Serum for beautiful skin that lasts.
