Recipe ideas for your kit ingredients:
Brightening and renewing, this combination of ingredients will give you instant results:
• Camu Camu
• Sweet Potato
• Kaolin Clay
The vitamin c content in camu camu is the perfect match for sweet potato’s hyaluronic acid content to boost collagen production. Beta carotene in lucuma is wonderful for skin regeneration while quinoa contains b vitamins to break up melanin deposits. A little kaolin clay makes this combination creamy and acts as a great cleanser to absorb dirt and oils.
This replenishing mask will offer moisture and clarity to dull skin while reducing redness and leaving a lovely glow:
• Rhassoul Clay
The sweet smell of chocolate in the raw cacao brings serious antioxidant benefits as well as suppleness to your skin with its fatty acid content. Reishi mushrooms contain adaptogens to help skin resist damage and restore skin health. Amaranth contains bioactive peptides to reduce inflammation and calm skin, while rhassoul clay cleanses away impurities and feeds skin with its heavy mineral content.
This green machine will moisturizer, cleanse, and tone your skin, bringing life to a dull complexion:
• French Green Clay
Spirulina helps increase cell turnover and helps skin retain moisture. It’s also detoxifying and full of antioxidants for healthy skin. Hemp contains fatty acids that leave skin baby soft. It’s also calming for many skin conditions. French green clay is astringent which helps minimize the appearance of pores. It’s also rich in minerals due to its high plant content.
This formula will give you an exfoliating product that sloughs off dead skin and encourages cell turnover over with chemical exfoliation as well
• Rice Powder
Rice powder makes a wonderful choice for physical exfoliation due to its ability to brighten with b vitamins and the soothing, anti-inflammatory benefits of its allantoin content. The alpha-hydroxy-acids present in hibiscus flowers are wonderful for cell regeneration while the antioxidants protect your skin from free radical damage. The mild organic acids can also brighten and bring moisture to dull, dry complexions. A dose of another antioxidant powerhouse, blueberries, makes this exfoliator nourishing as well.
