An everyday natural face cream handmade in the UK using a blend of pure organic oils, like Argan Oil, and the moisture-holding Hyaluronic Acid. Once you switch to this moisturiser, you won't look back! I have been using it for years, and whilst I occasionally dabble in another natural alternative for a change, I always return to this cream. It has a wonderful combination of richness without being oily, and leaves my skin feeling really smooth and hydrated.
This cream works well under or over make-up too. The best part is that there are no toxic ingredients - I dare you to compare the ingredients list to that of your 'regular' high street cream!
Hyaluronic acid is a popular ingredient in face creams at the moment, as it is an excellent skin hydrator. It's ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in water makes it the perfect ingredient for a moisturiser. It helps to reduce wrinkles; making the skin look younger with an improved skin tone and increased production of collagen.
Argan Oil is high in vitamin E and fatty acids, both of which are renowned for repairing damaged skin and giving skin a youthful glow. With powerful anti-oxidants, argan oil helps to improve elasticity and leaves skin feeling plump and soft.
About Evolve Organic Beauty Evolve Organic Beauty is a small UK company founded by Laura Rudoe. They make a range of beauty products using natural and organic oils, butters and superfood ingredients. They've won loads of awards!!
Laura was inspired by her Romanian grandmother who always made her own skin products using the raw ingredients available to her in her close environment, as was typical in Romania at a time when people couldn't afford to buy beauty products. Having suffered problems with her own skin in her teen years, and remembering how good these natural products were, Laura started to research a range of ingredients that would enable her to create her own range.
She researched the ingredients for years, travelling as far as the Amazon to ensure that only the best and most effective ingredients are used. Each product is made by hand in a small studio in Hertfordshire. Provenance comes in the form of the 'Made By' information on the container.
Evolve Beauty have now moved to an eco studio, where they make products in as energy efficient way as possible, limiting energy use in respect to the way they produce, transport and sell their products. Employees follow green initiaves such as avoiding unnecessary travel and using proper crockery and cutlery. The eco office has sustainable flooring, using recycled carpet and recyclable non-slip flooring which are reminiscent of natural materials.
Sustainability Where possible, ingredients are sourced from close to home, and always from fairtrade and sustainable sources. Evolve are looking into ways in which they can offer a refill service.
End of Life The glass and card packaging are widely recyclable (and made from recycled materials). The plastic is 75-100% recycled PET which, unlike PVC, is fully recyclable. Labels and packaging are printed using non toxic soy and vegetable inks.
