Naturopathica Skin Brightener

After having kids most things in my life have changed for the better. Sadly, a few have changed for the worse….. like age spots.
I’ve tried natural remedies that have improved the situation (check out past posts on that here), but recently I found this product by one of my favorite cosmetic companies, Naturopathica.

I have been using the Skin Brightener for a little over a week now and I can see a pretty significant difference. The spots are definitely lighter and my skin tone is more even.

It’s also vegan, and animal friendly!

Botanical Skin Brightener uses natural ingredients to help lighten brown spots like the following…..

LICORICE ROOT: obtained from the roots of Glycyrrhiza Glabra, a perennial herb native to southern Europe, Asia and the Mediterranean

WINE EXTRACT: a concentrated preparation of polyphenols that helps to right free radicals and brighten the complexion

DAISY FLOWER: high in saponins, polyphenols and polysaccharides, studies have shown this extract to demonstrate skin brightening effects

ASCORBIC ACID: also known as Vitamin C, this ingredient is a powerful antioxidant that helps to reduce redness

LACTIC ACID: known benefits of this AHA include exfoliation, moisturization, reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin firming and  brightening

EMBLICA FRUIT EXTRACT: an important Ayurvedic herb that helps to promote natural skin tone, reduce hyperpigmentation and minimize the appearance of fine lines

One of the resons I like Naturopathica so much is that it is ECOCERT-CERTIFIED. Meaning, it’s audited and accreditation by one of the largest and oldest independent natural and organic certification bodies. Adding the ECOCERT seal to a Naturopathica product ensures that it has gone through a rigorous review process from ingredient sourcing and formulation, to manufacturing. Any ingredient whose safety may affect the environment as well as synthetic colors, antioxidants, emollients, oils, fats and silicones are prohibited.

Their custom bottles are made from 100% post-consumer PET plastic derived from diverse feedstocks of post-use recycled containers, and their tubes are made from 100% post-consumer HDPE milk bottles and PE plastic!
