All plants are superstars!
Stinging nettle (urtica dioica) is a nasty plant that irritates the skin for hours after coming in contact with it. Yet we have a great deal of respect and love for this nasty plant in our formulas. We even eat it! Nettle is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps reduce inflammation and pain. Also a powerful astringent, taken orally as a tea, it cleanses the body and rids of toxins. Used as a rinse for hair, it helps restore the growth of lost hair as well as promote health and shine. Nettle is just one of our superstars.
There is not one herb or botanical we use in our skin care formulations, that are not consumed in one way or another for health and wellness. Eat to nourish your skin from the inside out. Eat for your mind and body. Your skin benefits from every plant the rest of your body is thriving on.
We don't limit our plant ingredients to only locally grown species. We thoroughly investigate the rarest of plants from around the world and sometimes we've never heard of them before accidentally coming across the name. An unrecognized name beckons the beginning of research which is a huge part of the formulation process and is very exciting.
