SKINCARE = SKIN FOOD
Your skin is already beautiful.
Those freckles. That scar from where your friend accidentally scratched you in a tickle fight when you were 10. The fine line between your eyebrows that formed during an intense season of life. It carries your stories, it protects you from the outside world, and it’s all beautiful.
Feed Your Skin
Skin (just like every other part of your body) receives nourishment from the food you eat. It’s a living organ, but unlike your other organs, it’s exposed to the elements. While it acts as a barrier to keep all the things in our environment on the outside, it’s not an impermeable suit of armor. Skin absorbs what we put on it. Much more than we realize.
That's why being mindful of what goes on your skin has become such a large part of the clean movement. But we take it a step further.
When our founder started formulating products for her own oily, blemish prone skin, the goal was balance and nourishment. She learned the science of skin and how to work with her own rather than fight it.
Many companies were jumping on the the "natural" and "clean" skincare and cosmetics bandwagon. Argan oil, hazelnut oil, and grapeseed oil became buzzwords, but under the surface hype she realized many of the companies were using just enough of these ingredients to market that they contained those benefits.
The more she researched she realized that just like everything we eat can feed or deplete our bodies, everything we put on our skin does the same. It became her passion to see if she could create products where every single ingredient worked to feed the skin. A skincare line that didn't do just lip service to natural ingredient buzzwords but contained those ingredients exclusively.
The resulting products are what we now call our Origins line. As we've expanded over the years, we've held tight to that same standard; skincare that balances while it cleanses and moisturizes and makeup that nourishes and soothes while it enhances natural beauty. Products that feed your skin so it can be it's best.
Where does your lipstick go?
Lipstick, lip gloss, and lip balm don't just disappear. Whether you lick it off or smooch it away, it's important to know that no matter where your lipstick ends up, it has ingredients that are safe enough to eat.
When you see something that appears effortless, it’s usually taken a lot of work to get to that point. An always-clean, orderly home has systems in place to keep it that way. A person that always looks put together has honed their style to discover what works best and sticks with it. It takes time to establish the status of effortless, but once you’re there it doesn’t take much time or effort to maintain.
Nourished skin is effortless.
We want to help you get there.
Our bodies are incredible. When its needs are met, your body can operate on its own without your help. You don’t need to make your heart beat, or take in oxygen - your body takes care of it on its own.
Balanced skin is a system just like the rest. It’s comfortable and supple. It’s skin that you don’t think about because it’s just doing it’s own thing.
So when skin shows signs of distress like dryness, excess oil, inflammation, or blemishes, it’s an indicator that it needs to be cared for in a different way. When you have a cold, you don’t reach for a big steak dinner - it’s heavy and hard on your body to process. It's not what your body needs right then. It’s time to focus on nourishing your body so it can have the strength to recover - it’s time for chicken soup.
Your skincare routine is chance to use beneficial ingredients to feed the skin so it can balance itself and get back to it’s best. Each of our Origins Oil Cleansers and Aloe Moisturizers have a different set of oils that give specific skin types what they need. Check out Our Oil Obsession for more info on how our products nourish each skin type individually.
Reading labels is a time investment, but it doesn’t have to be a research project. It’s frustrating to make the effort to find out what’s in a product then not be able to recognize the ingredients without a chemistry degree. So when we started Skin Deeper, complete transparency was a priority - no hiding behind unrecognizable terms.
To bring this transparency to our website, on each product we feature an image of all the ingredients we use to craft that product. We're proud of what we use and we want to share it with you!
