When we talk about a lab, most of you may conjure up images of professor-types in long white coats. Well, not in our world – we do things a little differently around these parts.
For more than 20 years, we’ve been researching the skin benefits of botanicals vs. petrochemicals. We carry out this research in our ‘labs,’ which are more like quintessential English greenhouses (you know, the overgrown, chaotic type) than traditional laboratories.
Our crib is home to trendy, green science geeks almost always sporting a pair of hunter green wellies (wellington boots), surrounded by the aromatic bouquet of greenery and soil.
Our research continues to uncover the awesome power of plants and their ability to far outperform their toxic counterparts. This is why every bottle, tube, and jar is chockful of these lovingly grown and crafted ingredients as is humanly possible.
What’s more, our botanicals come from our very own UK-farms and fairtrade suppliers from around the world. So you can be assured you’re using only the very best clean, green ingredients on your skin.
Our research is based on the concept of Phytotherapy. This is the study of using herbal extracts as medicines or health-promoting products. All enhanced with our clinically-proven, Prebiotic Activ Technology™, which nourishes the good microflora on your skin while suppressing the bad. This concept provides a natural yet revolutionary solution to common skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and even the effects of accelerated aging.
In reality, Phytotherapy is nothing new. It’s based on the oldest and most universal system of medicine, harking back to when early civilizations used plants as their primary source of medicine. Around a quarter of all pharmaceutical drugs currently prescribed by doctors were initially derived from plants, but have since been replaced with synthetic alternatives. And we’re asking why?
There is growing scientific evidence that plants possess a vast and complex array of active ingredients, including phytochemicals. These cannot only calm and soothe skin, but actively restore, heal, and protect it, too. That’s why we’re sticking to our tried and tested traditional methods for the foreseeable future.
Stay tuned for more greenhouse shenanigans.
Lots of love, Your skin saviors
