“Golden root. It’s amazing. As an adoptogen it boosts the body’s resilience. Coneflowers are also interesting because they contain a form of natural hyaluronic acid. Fig extract reduces transepidermal water loss. We combine this extract with coneflower and Damask rose – which smells divine, by the way! – to make our bestselling product: Ultra Hydration Serum. We pick and mix the best natural ingredients. However, we don’t rest on our laurels. Wearing masks the last couple of years means people are looking each other in the eye more. That’s why we have developed a lifting serum with hibiscus extract, an outstanding natural botox”.
Pioneers through and through, including when it comes to sustainability. One of the company’s core principals is to support projects benefitting our planet – collecting ocean plastic and reforestation, for example – and avoid creating waste.
